Where Tom Holland Allegedly Stands With Marvel And Sony When It Comes To Making More Spider-Man Movies
Last December, Tom Holland, alongside director Jon Watts and co., delivered a sturdy capper to his Spider Man trilogy with No coming home. It was fun to see Peter Parker from Holland cross paths with Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire (something that made Holland nervous behind the scenes). At this point, of course, fans are surely still wondering what lies ahead for the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s version of the beloved web-slinger. Marvel Studios and Sony kept all plans and/or negotiations close to the vest. Now, however, a new report has provided alleged details about the state of affairs with Holland and the studios regarding his status as Spidey.
Speculation about the future of the Spider Man the film franchise started appearing even before the release of No coming home. Ahead of the film’s release, producer Amy Pascal surprisingly revealed that Sony and Marvel will be collaborating on another film starring the iconic comic book hero and starring the Cherry alum. Needless to say it was very good news for hopeful fans To hear. This new report claims that other projects are indeed in the works, but it doesn’t look like the frontman has signed on the dotted line just yet:
Tom Holland previously shared his thoughts on his status as Spider-Man following the release of his third solo outing, albeit in a cryptic way. Shortly after Amy Pascal said more movies were on the way, Holland responded to the news, saying he and the Powers That Be “have some very, very exciting things to discuss”. But he also said he doesn’t “know what these things are or what will become of them.” A few months later, the actor further mentioned that “conversations” had taken place but has not said for sure if he will officially return.
The report of the pinner suggests fans shouldn’t worry too much about his involvement, however. Industry insider Jeff Sneider goes on to say that Sony is still actively working to stay in the Spider-Man business and maintain its overall relationship with the 26-year-old British actor:
It would certainly fall to Sony to retain Tom Holland given his value to the company. Spider-Man: No Coming Home alone grossed $1.9 billion at the box office, and Unexplored reached impressive figures this year too. So you’d think the studio is doing everything it can to keep Holland in the fold.
It’s unclear where a fourth installment in the superhero franchise would go in the direction of the story. No coming home ended with Peter Parker, with the help of Doctor Strange, saving the world by erasing the public’s memory of its existence. From there, he continues to be a hero, even donning a revamped costume (which is heavily influenced by the comics). The film’s writers have since discussed the ending and explained that they wrote it while being I don’t know if Tom Holland would do another movie. Like them, we’ll be waiting for more updates but, at the very least, there seems to be reason for optimism.
Spider-Man: No Coming Home is now available on Digital HD, 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray and DVD. While you wait for news on a fourth movie, be sure to stay tuned for others upcoming marvel movies.
