In just a few short weeks, Spider-Man: No Way Home will release in theaters after months and months of anticipation. However, the future of Spider-Man on the big screen has been sort of a mystery. With Sony Pictures developing its own Marvel universe and a major tease of Tom Holland crossing over in Venom: Let There Be Carnage, many fans believed the MCU would be Spidey-less moving forward. However, in a conversation with Fandango, producer Amy Pascal revealed the future of Sony’s working relationship with Marvel Studios.
“This is not the last movie that we are going to make with Marvel – this is not the last Spider-Man movie,” Pascal revealed. “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 on to the next three. This is not the last of our MCU movies.”
The impending release of No Way Home marks Tom Holland’s sixth appearance as Spider-Man in the MCU. Aside from his own solo trilogy, the actor appears alongside the Avengers in big team-up films like Infinity War and Endgame as well. Based on news from Amy Pascal, one would imagine that strategy will continue moving forward. Additionally, Holland will likely also interact with characters in Sony’s Marvel Universe like Tom Hardy’s Venom and Jared Leto’s Morbius.
Spider-Man: No Way Home boasts a stacked cast, including Holland, Zendaya, Willem Defoe, Jacob Batalon, Jamie Foxx, Alfred Molina, Benedict Cumberbatch, and supposedly Andrew Garfield, Kirsten Dunst, Charlie Cox, and Tobey Maguire. Jon Watts returned to the director’s chair with a script penned by Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers (The Lego Batman Movie).
