Tom Holland Finally Addresses His Future as Spider-Man

Even before Spider-Man: No Way Home hit theaters, fans had already begun wondering if star Tom Holland would be up for more adventures as Spider-Man. After first appearing as the character in 2016’s Captain America: Civil War, Holland suited up as Spidey in five more films over the next six years. However, the day No Way Home hit theaters, Marvel Studios One Above All Kevin Feige assured fans that a fourth installment in the franchise was already in development, assuaging fears that Holland’s days as the Web-Slinger were done. In late 2022, rumors began to swirl that Holland had reached a new deal that would keep him in the suit for several more years but nearly a year and a half later, there’s never been any word from Holland as to the veracity of those reports, only that he’s very protective of the character and would not make another film just to appease fans. Now as word begins to trickle out that production on Spider-Man 4 is set to kick off later this year, the actor has finally spoken about his future as the Wallcrawler.

In an interview with Deadline, Holland explained that while there’s still work to do on getting the fourth installment in the franchise up and running, he will “I’ll always want to do Spider-Man films.”

The simple answer is that I’ll always want to do Spider-Man films,” Holland explained to Deadline when asked if he planned to return to the dual roles of Peter Parker and Spider-Man. “I owe my life and career to Spider-Man. So the simple answer is yes. I’ll always want to do more.” And while those comments will certainly relieve any anxiety fans have about seeing the character return to action in the MCU, Holland once again shared that his return for a follow-up to Spider-Man: No Way Home is dependent on a story that does the character justice.

We have the best in the business working toward whatever the story might be. But until we’ve cracked it, we have a legacy to protect,” said Holland. “The third movie was so special in so many ways that we need to make sure we do the right thing.” The actor then revealed that he’s working behind the scenes with the creative team to ensure the right thing is done. “This is the first time in this process that I’ve been part of the creative so early. It’s just a process where I’m watching and learning. It’s just a really fun stage for me. Like I said, everyone wants it to happen. But we want to make sure we’re not overdoing the same things.

While it’s unknown who is penning the script for Spider-Man 4, Feige indicated that work on the story was already underway in February 2023. Rumors about the film’s plot have pointed toward it tying in with the events of the Disney Plus streaming series Daredevil: Born Again and featuring a street-level civil war pitting a team of heroes against Vincent D’Onofrio‘s Wilson Fisk and his anit-vigilante task force. With Sony reportedly having an eye on a 2025 release for the film, things behind the scenes will have to come together fairly quickly.
