Happy Spider-Week! It’s being billed as Spider-Man: Endgame – a Spider-Man movie so huge and so historic, it’s pulling in heroes and villains from across 20 years of live-action Spider-Man movies. This third film in the “Homecoming” trilogy, Spider-Man: No Way Home, will wrap up a trilogy of films that began with 2017’s Spider-Man: Homecoming, and continued with 2019’s Spider-Man: Far From Home, but will Tom Holland suit Up as Spider-Man Again?
Amy Pascal: We Want To Do A New Trilogy With Tom Holland As Spider-Man
According to longtime “Spider-Man” producer Amy Pascal, Holland is expected to keep playing the role for more movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
This is not the last movie that we are going to make with Marvel — [this is not] the last Spider-Man movie,” she told movie ticketing site Fandango on Monday. “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.”
But don’t get too excited. Ahead of the release of Spider-Man: No Way Home, Rothman told Variety that Pascal might have jumped the gun. “I will confirm that my dear sister-in-arms, Amy, is a very optimistic person. That’s what I will confirm. The reality is nothing is set. Nothing has been determined. But on the other hand, everything is still possible,” he said.
Tom Holland on ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ and Planning the Future He Wants
Tom Holland, who has already spent six years as “Spider-Man” across three standalone movies and several Avengers films, has recently expressed some doubt about continuing to play the character in future installments.
“I have to take Peter Parker into account as well, because he is an important part of my life,” he told GQ ahead of “No Way Home,” US release. “If I’m playing Spider-Man after I’m 30, I’ve done something wrong.”
Holland suggested that although it may be time to “move on” from the franchise, He also mentioned “Maybe it is time for me to move on. Maybe what’s best for Spider-Man is that they do a Miles Morales film,” Holland noted – and he might be onto something there. While fans might not welcome another Spider-Man origin story, they could probably accept another Spider-Man movie where Peter hands the reins to Miles.
Ultimately, Holland doesn’t want to give “100 percent” of his energy to any single venture going forward, presumably because the world is his oyster. At 25, that’s a pretty good place to be.
In the late 1990s, Marvel sold the film and merchandising rights to Spider-Man to Sony while the super hero company was battling bankruptcy. Spider-Man was the favored hero in Sony’s eye then and still is today.
Disney doesn’t own Sony Pictures or the film rights to Spider-Man. However, Disney has had Spider-Man merchandising rights since 2011.
