The third instalment in Holland-fronted take on Marvel's webhead was originally scheduled for July 2021, though Sony has confirmed that this latest delay only pertains to the domestic calendar in the US, with details on its international release to be confirmed. 

The delay is just one of several announced during Comic-Con 2020 (opens in new tab) week, alongside Top Gun: Maverick (opens in new tab), A Quiet Place 2 (opens in new tab), and all the Avatar sequels (opens in new tab), as film distributors continue to make tough calls in response to the pandemic's impact on the industry.

Cinemas are tentatively re-opening across Europe, but the domestic market in the United States looks more shaky, as shelter-in-place measures continue to be enacted around the country.
