Tom Holland will stay on as Spider-Man for future projects produced by Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures.
With the release of Spider-Man: No Way Home imminent, Tom Holland’s future as the web crawler remained uncertain. Holland – who has been playing Peter Parker since 2016 – himself mentioned that he didn’t see himself playing Spidey well into the future and that it might be time to hand the baton over to Miles Morales. While some remained doubtful over Holland’s return, many saw the British star’s comments as public negotiations with Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios, who have both produced the character’s recent solo films.
It turns out that Tom Holland won’t be leaving the role of Spider-Man after all. In a recent interview with Fandango, Sony producer Amy Pascal dropped the bombshell that the studio is set to work on another trilogy of Spider-Man films with Marvel Studios and Tom Holland.
“This is not the last movie that we are going to make with Marvel – [this is not] the last Spider-Man movie. We are getting ready to make the next Spider-Man movie with Tom Holland and Marvel, it just isn’t part of… we’re thinking of this as three films, and now we’re going to go onto the next three. This is not the last of our MCU movies.”
Amy Pascal recently mentioned that she wouldn’t make Spider-Man films without Tom Holland and it looks like she’s gotten her wish. As of now, Marvel Studios and Tom Holland haven’t commented on the star’s return. Tickets for No Way Home went on sale earlier today, crashing nearly every exhibitor’s website worldwide. It’s obvious that the latest Spider-Man film is set to make a big splash at the box office and Marvel and Sony have done their due diligence by wrangling in Tom Holland for another set of films.
Here is the synopsis for Spider-Man: No Way Home:
