Leading into Spider-Man: No Way Home, there has been concern amongst fans that Tom Holland’s time as Spider-Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe could be coming to an end, as some suspected the character would find himself trapped in Sony’s Spider-Man Universe with the likes of Tom Hardy’s Venom and Jared Leto’s Morbius, or that Holland himself would walk away from the role, having been playing the character since he was a teenager.
Alas, in a recent interview with Fandango that coincided with tickets for Spider-Man: No Way Home going on sale, Sony producer Amy Pascal has confirmed that not only will Holland’s Spidey remain in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but that they’re gearing up for a whole new trilogy.
“This is not the last movie that we are going to make with Marvel – [this is not] the last Spider-Man movie,” Pascal revealed. “We are getting ready to make the next Spider-Man movie with Tom Holland and Marvel. 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,” Pascal told Fandango.
Pascal’s comments come as the release of the massive Spider-Man: No Way Home — which will see the return of villains from various Spider-Man universes — is just weeks away.
Spider-Man: No Way Home — the fourth film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Phase 4 following Black Widow, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, and Eternals, and 27th film overall — stars Tom Holland as Peter Parker / Spider-Man, Zendaya as MJ, Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange, Jamie Foxx as Electro, Alfred Molina as Doc Ock, and Willem Dafoe as Green Goblin. While Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield’s Spider-Men have yet to be confirmed, odds are they’ll show up, too. The film is scheduled to hit theaters in the United States on Friday, December 17.
