Tom Holland has confirmed Marvel Studios will be sticking to their traditional plan of a trilogy for their heroes.
At this past year’s Cinema Con, Spider-Man Homecoming producer Amy Pascal revealed the character was only contracted to appear in Homecoming, two Avengers movies and one sequel after Homecoming. This was later confirmed by MCU head honcho Kevin Feige soon after. However, Tom Holland has already said that he wants to play Spider-Man for "a very long time", and it looks like Sony and Marvel are lining things up to make that happen. The actor recently has revealed that two more films are in the works.
“Yes, there is what we call the arc of the character,” Holland tells AlloCiné regarding the full scope of Spider-Man’s story moving forward. “There is still a lot of room for Peter Parker and Spider-Man, especially, to grow in the next two movies. He’s definitely not the finished article by the end of Spider-Man: Homecoming and I really look forward to exploring the different ways he can grow up and… go through puberty I guess. It’s going to be an exciting couple of movies.”
When asked to clarify that he meant just solo Spider-Man movies, he replied: “There will be a Spider-Man 2 and 3… Yeah, well now you know, sorry Marvel. Whoops!”
At the moment, only the sequel for Spider-Man: Homecoming has a set release date for July 7th, 2019. But with a third film and a handful of Spider-Man-related movies, like Venom and Silver & Black, due to debut over the next few years, it’s clear that Marvel and Sony have big plans for Ol’ Webhead going forward.
Summary: Following the events of Captain America: Civil War (2016), Peter Parker attempts to balance his life in high school with his career as the web-slinging superhero Spider-Man.
Spider-Man: Homecoming, directed by Jon Watts, stars Tom Holland, Robert Downey Jr., Marisa Tomei, Donald Glover, Zendaya, Tony Revolori, and Michael Keaton.
