It looks like the entire world is currently celebrating the return of Spider-Man into the Marvel Cinematic Universe now that Sony and Disney have signed a new deal in how to move forward with the webslinger's future. Not surprisingly, even Sony executive Robert Lawson is happy that the negotiations were finalized.

Lawson, who serves as Chief Communications Officer for Sony Pictures Entertainment, commented on the new agreement, indicating that it was something that should happen considering everything that both studios have done for Spider-Man (via Comicbook.com).

"We have had a great collaboration over the last four years, and our mutual desire to continue was equal to that of the many fans," Lawson said. "We are delighted to be moving forward together."

Amy Pascal, the Sony producer behind the Spider-Man movies, is also thrilled that a new deal was made.

"This is terrific," she said in a statement. "Peter Parker's story took a dramatic turn in Far From Home and I could not be happier we will all be working together as we see where his journey goes. This has been a winning partnership for the studios, the franchise and the fans and I'm overjoyed it will continue."

The third Spider-Man movie is expected to be produced by Marvel Studios and has already been given an official release date on July 21, 2021. In addition to that, Tom Holland is set to reprise his role in one more MCU movie after Spider-Man 3. Although we're not yet sure which film it's going to be, my guess is Doctor Strange In the Multiverse of Madness.
