Tom Holland did put all Marvel fans on the edge of their seats a few weeks ago when he hinted that his time as the web-slinger has finally come to an end with the upcoming No Way Home — and one that’s only about five years away. However, this didn’t last for long as franchise producer Amy Pascal revealed that there were more plans for another Spider-Man trilogy starring Tom Holland before he sets off anywhere. For now, it doesn’t seem like it’s officially greenlit yet but Sony executives are more or less backing what Pascal has to say. so obviously, when the premiere for the film happened last night, Variety stopped Spider-Man Producer Amy Pascal to see if they could get some more clarity on the already talked about topic.
Amy Pascal Talks About Tom Holland’s Stay As Spider-Man
While Amy was a little less forthcoming than usual, the producer joked that she didn’t want to get in trouble again (presumably with Marvel Studios and/or Sony brass, all of them tend to be pretty anti-spoiler). Still, Pascal doubled down on her stance…while making sure it was clear that it was her stance.
“As long as [Holland] wants to make Spider-Man movies, we will make Spider-Man movies, and I’m a producer, and I always think everything’s going to work out,” Pascal said with a laugh. After being put on the spot about whether that means Holland will actually return to the role, she added, “If I have my way, he will.”
Here’s the exchange for you:
Will audiences see more of Tom Holland's #SpiderMan?
— Variety (@Variety) December 14, 2021
In Spider-Man: No Way Home, Peter Parker will square off against villains from the franchise’s past — but not against ones he has seen before. On December 17th, Spider-Man will battle the Green Goblin (Willem Dafoe, Spider-Man), Dr. Octopus (Alfred Molina, Spider-Man 2), Electro (Jamie Foxx, The Amazing Spider-Man 2), and more.
After the events of Endgame, What If…? and Loki, Marvel’s multiverse looks like it’s more wide open than before, which has gotten some fans to expect to see Andrew Garfield’s Spider-Man, alongside Tobey Maguire’s Spidey as the two share the screen with Tom Holland. After the commercial success of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, there’s barely a more commonsense character for Marvel to begin exploring its infinite Earths with.
Starring Tom Holland, Zendaya, Marisa Tomei, Jamie Foxx, Jacob Batalon, Alfred Molina, and Benedict Cumberbatch, Marvel Studios and Sony’s Spider-Man: No Way Home is set to open in the theaters on 17th December.
