As the ongoing health crisis continues to shut down theaters worldwide, film studios have responded with delaying their upcoming films. As a result, Marvel Studios has reacted in a similar manner. Black Widow was delayed to November 2020, and the latest speculation aims for September as a targeted return to production for many Marvel Studios projects. In recent weeks, there have been questions as to whether the third solo Spider-Man film starring Tom Holland would be pushed back as well. Now, it seems Marvel and Sony's third blockbuster starring the web-slinger seems to have suffered the same fate.
Per entertainment reporter Jeff Schneider via Twitter, the third Spider-Man film starring Tom Holland has been delayed from July 16, 2021, to November 5, 2021.

WHAT THIS MEANS
Eagle eye Marvel fans will notice that Spider-Man 3's new release date of November 5, 2021, belonged to Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. While it would truly be amazing (and possibly historic?) to have two MCU films release on the same day, the chances of this happening are likely zero percent. In the aftermath, the Doctor Strange sequel will likely be pushed to 2022, again pushing the timeline of the next phase of the MCU further back in the midst of the ongoing health crisis. While it is always tough news to hear of delays, know that once we work back towards normality, we will have an abundance of MCU films and content to enjoy.
