It seems that Spider-Man: No Way Home may mark the end of Tom Holland’s solo Spider-Man films, but it isn’t a done deal quite yet.
The marketing is ramping up for Spider-Man: No Way Home, and with that comes questions of whether or not there could be more films in the future. For now it seems the question is a bit up in the air.
Speaking with Entertainment Weekly in support of the film, Holland said, “We were all treating [No Way Home] as the end of a franchise, let’s say.” He went on to add, “I think if we were lucky enough to dive into these characters again, you’d be seeing a very different version. 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.”
It’s worth noting that after Iron Man 3 marked the end of Tony Stark’s solo films, he still went on to appear in five more MCU movies. Just because a solo series of stories comes to an end, it doesn’t mean the character is done.
No one is sure how much time is left on Holland’s contract, but after all the discussion that took place to keep Spider-Man in the MCU, it seems fairly unlikely that this would be end of his appearances.
Spider-Man: No Way Home is currently scheduled to hit theaters on Dec. 17, 2021.
