They say that every ending is a new beginning, and it seems that we have a new date for Marvel Cinematic Universe’s next phase. We already knew that Avengers: Endgame will mark the end of the Phase 3 of the MCU. After all is set and done, the upcoming Spider-Man: Far From Home will launch MCU Phase 4. In a recent press release (via Screenrant), Sony has announced that the Far From Home release date has moved up three days. Now the movie will fly into theaters on Tuesday, July 2. The decision might be to better exploit the box office during this year’s Fourth of July.
