Spider-Man: No Way Home has become the sixth most grossing movie of all time at the box office. The film, which stars Tom Holland as Spider-Man, is the third installment in the Spider-Man: Homecoming trilogy and the character’s sixth appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Holland’s Spider-Man was last seen in a mid-credits cameo in Venom: Let There Be Carnage, and his last major part was in Spider-Man: Far From Home, the third and final installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Phase 3.
After the end of No Way Home, fans are speculating about the future of the spidey verse in MCU. But Tom Holland had his own take on the future of the character.
Tom Holland speaks about a possible trilogy sequel
Tom discussed the possibility of a Spider-Man trilogy sequel in a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, as well as the actor’s future with the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Tom said in the interview that there had been discussions about expanding the trilogy, but that nothing had been decided yet.
He said, “We’ve had conversations about the potential future of Spider-Man, but at the moment they are conversations.” The Cherry actor then added, “We don’t know what the future looks like.” Holland remarked that Marvel Studios and Sony surely would have a plan and are certainly “thinking of something”. “But at this moment I don’t know what that is,” added Tom.
Amy Pascal, Tom’s Spider-Man franchise producer, had previously stated that a new trilogy of Marvel Spider-Man films was in the works with Tom Holland, which had piqued fans’ interest. Tom, on the other hand, shattered several hearts during his interview when he declared, “I’m not really thinking about the future.” “I’m still riding the wave of the film’s popularity and loving it,” Tom continued.
Pascal announced a new three-parter featuring Tom Holland as the superhero from Queens in a recent interview with Fandango, as reported by Entertainment Weekly. “We’re getting set to shoot the new Spider-Man film with Tom Holland and Marvel,” she revealed. We’re thinking about three films for this, and now we’re going to go onto the next three,” she then added, “This is not the last of our MCU movies.”
Spidey and the bone of contention
With a legal ownership struggle between Marvel Studios and Sony, the Spider-Man trademark has been riddled with complexity and off-screen challenges for years. In the span of 14 years, three different actors have played the lead role in the franchise. Tobey Maguire’s live-action debut Spider-Man was released in 2002 and was followed by two sequels until Andrew Garfield took over as Peter Parker in The Amazing Spider-Man and The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Holland was eventually cast in another reboot, and made his MCU debut as Spider-Man in 2016’s Captain America: Civil War, with his most recent appearance as Peter Parker in Spider-Man: No Way Home being his sixth (including a cameo).
So what the future beholds is still a dilemma for everyone.
