A New Spider-Man Trilogy Starring Tom Holland is Happening
New images for Spider-Man: No Way Home have arrived just in time to…start thinking about a brand new Spidey trilogy starring Tom Holland? Well, it’s the Holiday season, so perhaps we shouldn’t be surprised at this overabundance of gifts.
With tickets for Spider-Man: No Way Home now available (and selling like hotcakes) it probably shouldn’t come as a big surprise that Sony Pictures is interested in keeping star Tom Holland in their Spider-Man Universe. Sony Pictures producer Amy Pascal revealed that Sony and Marvel Studios have big plans for Holland’s beloved version of the young web-slinger. Speaking to Fandango, Pascal had this to say about Holland’s future as Peter Parker:
“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.”
With No Way Home representing the third and final film in Holland’s first trilogy as Peter Parker, all directed by Jon Watts, it could have been the case that the Spider-Man Universe, which now contains Tom Hardy’s Venom and Jared Leto’s Morbius, would have connected to a brand new Spider-Man. With Pascal confirming that Holland’s got a whole new trilogy brewing, fans of his iteration of Peter Parker and his growing influence within the MCU have a lot to celebrate. Ditto those of us who want to see Holland’s Parker meet Hardy’s Eddie Brock and Leto’s blood-sucking Dr. Michael Morbius. Instead of keeping Peter Parker perennially a high schooler, it sounds like Sony plans to let Holland take Peter Parker into early adulthood and mix it up within the MCU and in Sony’s Spider-Man Universe, too.
