Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures are supposedly working on another trilogy featuring Tom Holland’s Spider-Man. And reports suggest that Spider-Man 4 is currently under the works, but in secrecy. Tom Holland first made his Marvel Cinematic Universe appearance as Peter Parker in 2016’s Captain America: Civil War. Following which, the star streaked in his solo series.
The trilogy started with Spider-Man: Homecoming. After which, Tom Holland appeared in a few Avengers movies and then hit the big screen with 2019’s Spider-Man: Far From Home. Now Holland’s Spidey is set to conclude his solo trilogy with the year’s most exciting Spider-Man: No Way Home. The movie is anticipated to win the biggest box office opening of the year.
For now, Disney and Sony’s standing collaboration will require Tom Holland to return for his role of Peter Parker in yet another MCU multi-hero project. Producer Amy Pascal revealed that the studio wishes to develop another Spider-Man trilogy starring Holland when it comes to the upcoming solo Spider-Man movies. However, no reports suggest the deal be official or confirmed yet. But it appears as though Holland will stay in the MCU in the forthcoming future. That is, if the alleged reports of the same are considered valid.
Recently, an article about MCU’s future surfaced on Puck. Matthew Belloni mentioned that a Spider-Man four starring Holland is already secretly developing. Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios are signing a deal of collaboration once again. Read the relevant excerpt from the piece below:
according to multiple sources, there’s a deal for a fourth Marvel-produced movie that will star Tom Holland, and it’s already quietly in development.
The partnership between Sony and Disney regarding Spider-Man on the Marvel Cinematic Universe has given genuinely extraordinary results. The deal has proven to be profitable for both parties involved. Spider-Man: Homecoming grossed $880.1 million worldwide, and Spider-Man: Far From Home grossed $1.1 billion. And now, Spider-Man: No Way Home is projected to hit higher in the ranks for the franchise. Especially with the earlier ticket sales seeing a massive response since Avengers: Endgame.
Despite the commercial cinemas settling in after the COVID-19 pandemic, the numbers are comparatively more impressive than in 2019. Spider-Man: No Way Home’s anticipation makes the film an exception to the current theatrical scenario. Considering all the factors involved, it makes sense that the production is willing to elaborate the series further. Spider-Man is allegedly the most popular and most admired of all Marvel superheroes. And particularly with Tom Holland’s iteration of the hero, audiences are floored.
The Marvel Cinematic Universe continues to move on following the events of Avengers: Endgame canonically. The world saw the last of legacies like Tony Stark and Steve Rogers. And in a matter of just a couple of years, Tom Holland has set the ground for himself. His iteration of Peter Parker is enough to advance through Phase 4 as the franchise introduces new characters. Previously, Holland has made comments about his tenure as Spider-Man coming to an end soon. However, it appears as if the star will stick around for a few more movies before finally standing down from the post. The future for Holland’s Peter Parker and the basic storyline for Spider-Man 2 will only be sure after No Way Home releases.
Spider-Man: No Way Homecoming was in theaters worldwide on December 17.
