Spider-Man 4: Sony Exec Hopes to Have Tom Holland, Zendaya, and Jon Watts Return

Ever since Spider-Man: No Way Home was released in December, Marvel fans have been wondering if Tom Holland will return for a fourth film. It's currently unclear whether or not he will be donning the Spidey suit again, and while the actor seems to have mixed feelings about coming back, he's not discounting a return to Marvel. Back in November, Holland spoke about passing the torch to someone else, saying, "If I'm playing Spider-Man after I'm 30, I've done something wrong." During a recent interview with Esquire Middle East, Holland clarified his comments, saying his words have "been slightly misconstrued." Recently, Sony executive Tom Rothman spoke with Deadline and revealed he wants Holland to return for a fourth film as well as Zendaya (MJ) and director Jon Watts.

Jon Watts Is Making a ‘Star Wars’ TV Show

We all know he did something right when directing Spider-Man: Homecoming, Spider-Man: Far From Home, and Spider-Man: No Way Home, so we're really hoping his Star Wars series is just as well received. Like Stranger Things, the show is said to be heavily influenced by Steven Spielberg's adventure films of the ’80s, like The Goonies and E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial.
