Spider-Man producers Amy Pascal and Kevin Feige have shared more details about the development. In an interview with The New York Times, Pascal and Feige were asked about the next stand-alone Spider-Man movie and somewhere their comments confirmed that the new movie is on the way.

"We’re producers, so we always believe everything will work out," Pascal said. "I love working with Kevin. We have a great partnership, along with Tom Rothman, who runs Sony and has been instrumental, a great leader with great ideas. I hope it lasts forever."

Further, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige told, “Amy and I and Disney and Sony are talking about — yes, we’re actively beginning to develop where the story heads next, which I only say outright because I don’t want fans to go through any separation trauma like what happened after Far From Home [the previous Spider-Man movie, in 2019]. That will not be occurring this time.”

Feige referred to the 2019  disagreement that happened a month after 'Far From Home' was released in which a successful deal between Disney’s Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures on the 'Spider-Man' films come to an end back then. According to a report in Deadline, the two studios were unable to reach terms on a deal about Disney a co-financing stake in future films.

However, a month later they managed to patch things up, but for a minute it looked like 'Spider-Man' is no longer a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Sony has held the rights to the MCU since 1985, but in 2015, the company announced a new deal with Disney and Marvel by allowing  Spider-Man to be used in Marvel films like 'Avengers: Endgame' and 'Spider-Man: Far From Home.' 

Talking further, Pascal added, "At the end of the movie we just made, you see Spider-Man make a momentous decision, one that you’ve never seen him make before, It’s a sacrifice. And that gives us a lot to work with for the next film."
