In December, actor Tom Holland will suit up as Spider-Man for the sixth time overall in the MCU when Spider-Man: No Way Home is released. With Disney and Sony’s deal set to expire, many fans have speculated that this could be the last time we see the British actor portray the web slinger. Well it seems that not only do the fans think this, but Holland believes this as well.
During an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Holland said that No Way Home is being treated like the end of the franchise.
“I think if we were lucky enough to dive into these characters again, you’d be seeing a very different version,” he added. “It would no longer be the Homecoming trilogy. We would give it some time and try to build something different and tonally change the films. Whether that happens or not, I don’t know. But we were definitely treating [No Way Home] like it was coming to an end, and it felt like it.”
Personally, I don’t think this will be the last time we see Holland as Spider-Man in the MCU. Whether it’s another solo Spidey film or as a supporting role, I truly believe Holland will return. The films have made too much money for Sony to just reboot it again.
I do believe Holland though that if another solo film is made, it will be “very different”. For one, Jon Watts, who directed all three of the Spider-Man “Home” films, will probably not be back as he’s set to helm the MCU’s Fantastic Four reboot. Also, it’s likely that enough time will have passed that they can move on from the High School environment.
As for No Way Home, if all the rumors about it are true, it could be the biggest Spider-Man film ever. In August, its first trailer set the all-time record for views in the first 24 hours of release. Hopefully, it lives up to all the hype.
Do you think Holland is done playing Peter Parker after Spider-Man: No Way Home?
