A SEQUEL to the forthcoming Spider-Man: Homecoming has already been given a date.

The follow-up to the Marvel reboot, starring Tom Holland in the lead role, will be released on July 5, 2019 in the US.

Spider-Man: Homecoming, the trailer for which was released earlier this week, is due for release in cinemas on July 7, 2017.

The plot picks up as Peter Parker returns home from his experience with The Avengers under the continued watchful eye of his new mentor Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.).

Initially, Peter tries to fall back into his normal daily routine – distracted by thoughts of proving himself to be more than just your friendly neighbourhood Spider-Man. But when the Vulture (Michael Keaton) emerges as a new villain, everything that Peter holds most important will be threatened.

In addition, Sony has announced its decision to move Will Smith and Martin Lawrence’s Bad Boys 4 ahead more than a month to make room.

Hence, Bad Boys 4 will now open on May 24, 2019, moving from its original July 3, 2019 date.

A third Bad Boys film, entitled Bad Boys For Life, is already set for release on January 12, 2018.

The July 2019 release date for the Spider-Man: Homecoming sequel is currently the furthest date for the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which also has an untitled Avengers 4 set for May 3, 2019.
