Now, though, it has been confirmed that Holland will apparently be getting a new contract, and the next Spider-Man trilogy starring the fan-favorite actor is already underway.
Producer Amy Pascal confirmed to Fandango:
“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. 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.”
At this time, it has not been confirmed if other popular MCU Avengers franchise characters will return in future Spider-Man films. It also remains unclear if the “Spider-Verse” — including former “Spider-Men” Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield — will play a role moving forward.
Release dates for future Spider-Man films — which will presumably be set after No Way Home and will, therefore, not include Parker’s mentor Tony Stark/Iron Man (Robert Downey, Jr.) who died in Avengers: Endgame (2019) — have not been confirmed.
No Way Home hits theaters on December 17, 2021.
More on Spider-Man: No Way Home
Joining Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) and Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019), the official description of Spider-Man: No Way Home reads:
For the first time in the cinematic history of Spider-Man, our friendly neighborhood hero is unmasked and no longer able to separate his normal life from the high-stakes of being a Super Hero. When he asks for help from Doctor Strange the stakes become even more dangerous, forcing him to discover what it truly means to be Spider-Man.
Holland and Zendaya (MJ) are joined by Benedict Cumberbatch (Doctor Stephen Strange), Jon Favreau (Happy Hogan), Marisa Tomei (Aunt May), Jacob Batalon (Ned Leeds), and Alfred Molina (Doctor Octopus) in the film.
