No Way Home star ‘Tom Holland’ has had ‘conversations’ with Marvel and Sony about his future as Spider-Man
Every Marvel fan is dying to know if Tom Holland will play Spider-Man again in his own solo movie. After the resounding success of Spider-Man: No Coming Home, it seems that the return of the actor is a given. But, so far, neither Marvel nor Sony have made an official announcement. Thanks to Holland, fans know the studios are at least thinking about what’s next.
Tom Holland Completed His MCU Trilogy With ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’
Unless they’re Chris Hemsworth playing Thor, Marvel actors tend to have trilogies and then they leave the Marvel Cinematic Universe. But while that probably won’t be the case for Tom Holland, Spider-Man: No Coming Home felt like it could serve as an end to his character.
In addition to celebrating three generations of cinema, the third MCU Spider Man The film featured the story of Peter Parker coming full circle. He’s had a different journey than Tobey Maguire’s character or Andrew Garfield’s Spider-Man, as he exists in a vast universe where the Avengers are constantly fighting massive battles. Corn Spider-Man: No Coming Home left with Peter in a situation similar to where Maguire and Garfield’s characters began.
No one knows who Peter is, and he’s just a friendly neighborhood Spider-Man living in a shitty apartment. As much as fans want to see Peter reunite with MJ and Ned, this potential ending was more than satisfying. Of course, no one would refuse to see Tom Holland dress up as Spider-Man in future movies.

Actor will appear in at least one more Marvel movie
At Spider-Man: No Coming Home First, Tom Rothman discussed Sony’s plans with Tom Holland with ComicBook.com.
“No specific plan,” Rothman said. “But it’s mutual. We lend one, so [Marvel Studios] lends one, and that’s how Benoît [Cumberbatch] is in this movie. So we have one more loan that is committed.
