Last December, Tom Holland, along with director Jon Watts and company, delivered a strong conclusion to his Spiderman trilogy with No way home. It was fun to see how Peter Parker from Holland crossed paths with those of Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire (something that made Holland nervous behind the scenes). Of course, at this point, fans are still wondering what’s in store for the Marvel Cinematic Universe version of the popular web-slinger. Both Marvel Studios and Sony have kept all plans and/or negotiations close to hand. Now, however, a new report has provided some alleged details on where things stand with Holland and the studios in relation to his status as Spidey.
Speculations about the future of Spiderman Film franchises appeared even before the release of No way home. Ahead of the film’s release, producer Amy Pascal surprisingly revealed that Sony and Marvel would be collaborating on another film starring the legendary comic book hero cherry Alum. Needless to say, that was Extremely good news for hopeful fans Listen. This new report claims there are indeed more projects in the works, but it doesn’t sound like the lead man has already signed on the dotted line:
Tom Holland has previously shared thoughts, albeit in a cryptic way, about his Spider-Man status following the release of his third solo outing. Shortly after Amy Pascal declared that more films were on the way, Holland responded to the news, who said he and those in power “have some very, very exciting things to talk about.” But he also stated that he “doesn’t know what these things are or what they’re going to be.” A few months later, the actor went on to mention that “conversations” did take place not sure if he would officially return.
The report of The ankle suggests that 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 do Sony well to stick with Tom Holland given how valuable he was to the company. Spider-Man: No Way Home grossed $1.9 billion at the box office alone, and Unexplored hit some impressive numbers This year too. So you’d think the studio would do whatever it takes to keep Holland in the fold.
Where a fourth installment in the superhero franchise would go is currently unclear. No way home ended up with Peter Parker, with the help of Doctor Strange, saving the world by erasing the public’s memory of its existence. He continues to carry on as a hero from there, even sporting an updated costume (which is heavily influenced by the comics). The film’s writers have since debated the ending, stating that they wrote it while they were unsure if Tom Holland would make another film. Like them, we’ll be waiting for more updates, but at least there seems to be reason for optimism.
Spider-Man: No Way Home is now available in Digital HD, 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray and DVD. While you wait for news on a fourth film, stay tuned for when it comes to others upcoming Marvel movies.
