Tom Holland is going to do at least 3 more Spider-Man movies after No Way Home

Spider-Man: No Way Home will be released in cinemas on December 17th. The last film Spiderman: Far From Home, left us with some huge cliffhangers about what was going to happen to our friendly neighborhood Spider-Man. So this movie has a lot to answer for. And going by the trailer, it looks like it’s going to deliver. Among the many reasons this movie is significant is it closes out Tom Holland’s trilogy in the titular role. Many questioned if he would exit the role. Even in his latest GQ profile, Tom had not signed for any more MCU films. Spider-Man, in particular, is a tricky character to speculate on because of the Marvel/Sony partnership. For anyone who doesn’t know, Spider-Man is a Marvel character that Sony bought the rights to decades ago. So Marvel has to negotiate to use him. That’s why Spider-Man films are not on Disney + and why he doesn’t appear in films he should, like Venom. So it was very surprising when Amy Pascal of Sony confirmed that Tom will be around for not one but three more Spider-Man films after No Way Home.

Spider-Man: No Way Home is set to wrap up the current trilogy of Marvel Cinematic Universe Spider-Man movies soon, but Tom Holland’s incarnation of the web-slinging hero isn’t hanging up his suit just yet: Sony producer Amy Pascal has confirmed in an interview with Fandango that Holland will return for a future trilogy of Spider-Man movies that will continue to be set in the MCU.

“This is not the last movie that we are going to make with Marvel — [this is not] the last Spider-Man movie. 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,” Pascal said.

I am a Tom fan, as most of you know. But even I’m not sure this is good news. It’d be nice to see all the MCU characters pop up in future movies for cameos or small roles, but I just can’t believe we need three more Spider-Man films featuring anyone. Nobody asked me, of course, but I think it’s a mistake. Especially because it looks like they are pulling out all the stops with No Way Home, where can they possibly go from here?

But I guess that’s what it all boils down to: what they do with No Way Home. Doctor Strange’s involvement has everyone excited. Not just because we get Benedict Cumberbatch at his campy finest, but because of Strange and Peter ripping a part time and space, letting in all the former villains, reprised by the original actors. This, of course, has everyone convinced that former Spider-Men are making cameos, too. Andrew Garfield is desperately trying to get us to believe he is not in the film. Nobody’s asking Tobey Maguire. All of this intrigue and a huge MCU opening in theaters is creating good old-fashioned havoc with pre-sales. Both AMC and Fandango’s websites crashed the day tickets went on sale. Everybody wants to see what Marvel has planned for this incarnation. Plus, we need to find out how Peter gets out of the mess he was left in at the end of Far From Home. And Tom. Everyone loves to see Tom in the Spider suit… which I guess is what Sony and Marvel are banking on for these next three films.

    He definitely sounded exhausted in that GQ interview but I think it was because NWH was a burden schedule wise to film. With all the actors coming back and them trying to keep it a secret. Not to mention COVID. Plus I think he filmed this and Uncharted one after the other so that probably led to his exhaustion. I think he loves the character (and the money isn’t bad either) but he needs a break. Which he deserves and I hope Marvel/Sony give it to him instead of pushing out a 4th film in 2 years.

    As for the next film, I imagine Sony really wants 9 films in total. 3 about his high school years, 3 about his college years and 3 about his adult years.

    Spiderman was the most popular character in the Marvel Universe before the MCU existed so there are a lot of fan boys and fan girls out there who want to relive their childhood comic reading memories. I hope to see a Spiderman Deadpool movie since they were a great combo in the comics but who knows where they will go. This movie is going to make all the money though I think

    I generally don’t really like Spiderman but I absolutely love Tom’s Spiderman (I feel the same about the Hulk and Mark Ruffalo, actually). That being said, I’m less interested in solo Spiderman flicks and more of him as part of a large line-up like we got in Civil War and Infinity War.

    Spiderman is my boyfriend’s absolute favorite. He was up late Sunday night buying tickets for the Thursday night showing and is already talking about going to see it again on Friday. Our local theater’s tickets sold out quickly. I’m sure there are plenty more people like him out there who will watch as many Spiderman movies as they’re willing to put out.

    I like Tom Holland and don’t mind the Marvel movies, I’ve seen them all and some are better than others. The first Spider-Man was okay but the last one was terrible in my opinion. Pretty mindless entertainment. Feels like they’re specifically trying to appeal with a younger audience with Spider-Man.
