'Spider-Man: No Way Home' producer says the upcoming 3rd movie isn't Tom Holland's final appearance in the MCU
- "Spider-Man: No Way Home" producer Amy Pascal said Tom Holland will appear again as the webslinger.
- "We are getting ready to make the next 'Spider-Man' movie with Tom Holland and Marvel," Pascal said.
- Pascal said that Marvel and Sony are gearing up for three more films with Holland.
"This is not the last movie that we are going to make with Marvel – [this is not] the last 'Spider-Man' movie," Pascal said in a new interview with Fandango, released on Monday. "We are getting ready to make the next 'Spider-Man' movie with Tom Holland and Marvel, it just isn't part of… 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."
"Marvel and Sony are going to keep going together as partners," Pascal added.
Holland first portrayed Peter Parker/Spider-Man in the 2016 movie "Captain America: Civil War." The British actor was the third individual to play the iconic webslinger in a live-action film, following in the footsteps of Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield.
"No Way Home," which marks his sixth appearance as the webslinger, is set for release on Friday, December 17.
"No Way Home" director Jon Watts referred to the film as "Spider-Man: Endgame" in an interview with Empire magazine and Holland told multiple outlets that his future in the MCU is uncertain because the film is his final one as part of his current contract.
He also told Entertainment Weekly that the cast and crew are treating "No Way Home" as "the end of a franchise."
"If we were lucky enough to dive into these characters again, you'd be seeing a very different version," Holland said. "It would no longer be the 'Homecoming' trilogy. We would give it some time and try to build something different and tonally change the films."
Most recently, the "Cherry" actor told GQ, "If I'm playing Spider-Man after I'm 30, I've done something wrong."
Pascal told Fandango that "No Way Home" is "the culmination of the 'Homecoming' trilogy, of the story of Tom Holland becoming the Spider-Man that we've all been waiting for him to be."
Beyond "No Way Home," it's unclear when fans can expect to see Holland suited up as Spider-Man.
Marvel and Sony, who coproduce films about Spider-Man and related characters, have some known projects in the works.
A sequel to the 2018 animated movie "Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse" is set for release on April 8, 2022.
In August 2020, multiple outlets reported that Olivia Wilde will be directing an unknown project for Marvel/Sony centered on a female character.
Fans have speculated that the project will focus on Spider-Woman. Wilde herself fueled the theory when she quoted a tweet about her Marvel involvement and responded with a spider emoji.
Meanwhile, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, who played Pietro Maximoff/Quicksilver in "Avengers: Age of Ultron," will portray popular Spidey villain Kraven the Hunter in an upcoming standalone film set for release on January 13, 2023. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Taylor-Johnson signed a multi-picture deal.
