Spider-Man will return. Those words excited fans at the end of Captain America: Civil War and they are sure to excite fans again now. Tom Holland will be returning to play Peter Parker in future Sony-Marvel Spider-Man films after Spider-Man: No Way Home.
- Variety reports that producer Amy Pascal has revealed that Sony plans to have Holland return to play the web-slinger in the future.
- There are reportedly no formal deals in place to guarantee these future films, but Sony would like to keep their relationship with Marvel going, with Holland at the center of it.
- Pascal also went on to explain that they look at Holland’s first three Spider-Man titles as a trilogy and future films will be outside of that.
- Holland has already portrayed Spider-Man in five films, with Spider-Man: No Way Home set to be his sixth.
What they’re saying:
- Producer Amy Pascal: “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.”
