Tom Holland Reveals Plans for Spider-Man Franchise


Tom Holland has confirmed a Spider-Man trilogy is in the works.

The 21-year-old actor has revealed Spider-Man: Homecoming will be followed by two further standalone movies that will allow Marvel to develop the story of the iconic superhero.

Tom explained: “Yes, there is what we call the arc of the character. 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.”

Asked to clarify what he meant by a “couple of movies”, the actor told “There will be a ‘Spider-Man 2’ and 3 … Yeah, well now you know, sorry Marvel. Whoops!”

Spider-Man: Homecoming has been made possible because of a unique deal between Sony Pictures, which owns the rights to the Spider-Man character, and Marvel Studios.

Under the terms of their agreement, Marvel Studios takes the creative lead on a new Spider-Man movie and the character makes cameo appearances in films such as Avengers: Infinity War.

On the other hand, Sony distributes the standalone Spider-Man movies.

But Sony’s Amy Pascal has previously suggested the deal is poised to come to an end before the third Spider-Man movie, meaning a new agreement needs to be reached.

Speaking earlier this year, Amy said: “It may never happen again, after we do the sequel. Because Sony, and Disney, and Marvel all decided that the right thing to do was to allow Peter Parker and Spider-Man to be in the MCU and to work with the Marvel guys and have them produce this film.”
