Prior to the release of the trilogy’s final chapter, Spider-Man: No Way Home, on December 17, 2021, Zendaya spoke out about whether or not she and her boyfriend would ever reunite onscreen in the MCU:
“We don’t know if we’re gonna do another one [Spider-Man]. Like, is it just gonna be three and done? Normally you do three movies and that’s pretty much it, so I think we just were all absorbing and taking the time to just enjoy the moment, being with each other, and being so grateful for that experience.”

Although the actress isn’t certain about the future of Spider-Man on the silver screen — neither are Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios, seemingly, despite producer Amy Pascal’s assertions that a second Tom Holland trilogy is already in the works — Zendaya and the Doolittle actor may actually be reuniting sooner than fans expected in her HBO Max series, Euphoria.

For his part, Holland has indicated that he would be more than willing to play a role on the popular series, which explores the dark side of teen life:
“Listen, I have been petitioning for this for a long time, and it has not happened yet and I’m very disappointed. I must have come to visit Euphoria at least 30 times this season.”
