Tom Holland to Star in More Spider-Man Films for Marvel

Spider-Man: No Way Home is set to wrap up the current trilogy of Marvel Cinematic Universe Spider-Man movies soon, but it seems Tom Holland’s incarnation isn’t done with his web-slinging days. Producer Amy Pascal has confirmed in an interview with Fandango that he will return for a future trilogy which will continue to be set 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,” 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.”

Spider-Man is an iconic character that has been around for decades. With many people predicting the continuation of his story, there’s no telling how long you can expect these movies or television shows to last!

The unique licensing deals surrounding Spider-Man make things more complicated though, because while he belongs in Disney’s custody like most other major Marvel heroes, Sony owns all rights related to him since 1998 when they acquired them from Steve Ditko (the original creator).

This licensing issue has led to some maneuvering on the part of Disney. The films Spider-Man: Homecoming and Spider-Man: Far From Home aren’t available on Disney Plus, and Tom Holland’s Peter Parker has never appeared in the recent Venom films or the upcoming Morbius.

Asked to comment about these intricacies, Amy Pascal said, “Well, there’s the Marvel Universe, which is one container and then there’s the Spider-Verse movies, which are different and then there’s the other universe where the Sony characters are in. We all are very respectful of each other and work together and make sure that we’re only being additive.” The partnership between the two studios was confirmed when Amy declared, “Yes, Marvel and Sony are going to keep going together as partners.”

With this collaboration, more movies of the web-slinging hero are sure to come to the big screen.
