Tom Holland’s Spider-Man isn’t going anywhere, at least not if former Sony Pictures chairperson Amy Pascal will have her way. In a new interview, Pascal, the creator of every Spider-Man film since 2017’s Spider-Man: Homecoming, stated his intention to create a new trilogy of Spider-Man films within the Marvel Cinematic Universe, with Holland reprising his role. Pascal has previously spoken about his adoration for Holland as Peter Parker, exaggeratingly claiming that he has discussed making “100 more” Spider-Man movies and Spider-Man will never make movies without Holland.
“This isn’t the last movie we’re going to make with Marvel — [it’s not] the last Spider-Man movie,” Pascal told Fandango in an interview published Monday. “We’re getting ready to make the next Spider-Man movie with Tom Holland and Marvel. We’re thinking of it as three movies [Spider-Man: Homecoming, Spider-Man: Far From Home, and Spider-Man: No Way Home], and now we’re going to move on to the next three. This isn’t the last of our MCU movies, so yes, Marvel and Sony will go hand-in-hand as partners.
Hopefully, the new Spider-Man trilogy will also put an end to the current obsession with squeezing “home” into the title. Jokes aside, none of Disney, Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures have commented on whether they’ll have access to the Spider-Man movies, according to Deadline. People familiar with the matter told the publication that a new Spider-Man trilogy has not been confirmed at this time. Sony Pictures will have to strike a new deal with Disney, which has not gone well in the past. The two split in 2019, with Disney eventually agreeing to co-finance and acquire a 25% equity stake.
But with three more Spider-Man movies the big question could be convincing the lead star to stay. In an interview with GQ published earlier in November, Holland was non-committal on his Spider-Man future: “Maybe it’s time for me to move on. Perhaps the best thing about Spider-Man is that they film Miles Morales. I also have to take Peter Parker into account, because he is such an important part of my life. If I’m playing Spider-Man after I’m 30, I’ve done something wrong.”
Holland was 19 when he was cast as Peter Parker/Spider-Man. He is now 25 years old. Since then Holland has starred in five MCU movies — that is, six with Spider-Man: No Way Home in December. His Spider-Man trilogy spanned four years. If Sony Pictures continues its current pace (of releasing a new Spider-Man movie every two years), Holland could wrap up a new Spider-Man trilogy by the time he turns 30. And he seems somewhat open to it.
