The Spider-Man sequels are the latest films to get pushed back by Sony Pictures as Hollywood studios are adjusting their release schedule due to the coronavirus.

Sony Pictures announced on Friday that Marvel-Sony’s Spider-Man Far From Home sequel would be moved from July 16, 2021, to November 5, 2021. Sony Pictures Animation’s Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse sequel will also be delayed six months from April 8, 2022, to October 7, 2022.

Tom Holland starred in Spider-Man: Far From Home, which was one of the most successful films of 2019, grossing $1.3 billion in box offices worldwide. The franchise began with 2017’s Spider-Man Homecoming and the untitled film will be the third in the franchise.

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse was also a huge moneymaker, grossing $375 million worldwide and winning last year’s Acadamy Award for the best animated movie.

Holland’s video-game adaptation Uncharted will also be postponed, moving from October 8, 2021, to July 16, 2021.
