It looks like Tom Holland‘s Spider-Man will be swinging around the Marvel Cinematic Universe for at least another six or seven years.
While speaking to Fandango, Spider-Man producer Amy Pascal confirmed that Sony is developing another trilogy of films with Marvel Studios. Speaking about the Endgame-level feeling of Spider-Man: No Way Home, Pascal revealed:
“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.”
So not only will we be getting a fourth MCU Spider-Man film, but it looks like fifth and sixth films are also in the works. Pascal reiterated that “Marvel and Sony are going to keep going together as partners” on the films. She praised the partnership between Sony and Marvel and stated that the two coming together to work for “the good of the story and the character … I don’t think that’s always the spirit that you see. Yeah, working together and helping each other make things be better is a good model.”
Well, I’m down. I’ve grown to like Holland as Spider-Man and hope the next trilogy will take the character into college and navigating the struggles of being a young adult in New York.
Spider-Man: No Way Home hits theaters December 17, 2021.
What do you think of Tom Holland staying on as Spider-Man for another trilogy? Excited, or would you rather see Miles Morales take on the mantle?
