As Spider-Man: No Way Home winds down the current trilogy of Marvel Cinematic Universe movies, producer Amy Pascal confirmed in an interview with Fandango that Tom Holland’s incarnation will return for a future set to continue setting up his adventures through the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
“This is not the last movie that we are going to make with Marvel – [this is not] the last Spider-Man movie,” Pascal revealed. “We are getting ready to make the next Spider-Man movie with Tom Holland and Marvel. 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.”
Spider-Man is one of the more complicated Marvel characters to license. That’s because unlike most other major heroes in MCU who have been licensed by Disney since they bought up Fox film portfolio back in 2009, Spidey still belongs to someone else: Sony. Sony has held onto him since 1998.
In 2015, Sony Pictures agreed to let Marvel Studios integrate their character, Spider-Man, into the popular Marvel Cinematic Universe in exchange for co-producing Spider-Man films with them.
Spider-Man has seen many different iterations since 2002, starting with Tobey Maguire’s version of Peter Parker. Then in 2012, Andrew Garfield burst onto the Spider-Man scene with his amazing version of the character. Now with Tom Holland, the Spider-Man stories are continuing.
Teasing the plot of the upcoming movie, Producer Amy Pascal said, “I would say this movie deals with everything. It’s about family and love and honor and sacrifice. But it’s always centered around the decisions that Spider-Man has to make, right? It’s always about him being torn between the moment that he’s in and the destiny that is in front of him, and that’s what he’s dealing with in this movie in a really big way.”
It seems that Peter has a lot to deal with in the film, but even after this film, he still won’t be done.
