Spider-Man: No Way Home was shrouded in mystery when Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures released it. There were so many rumored cameos, with the most notable being confirmed. Both Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire reprised their roles as Peter Parker/Spider-Man to assist Tom Holland’s wall-crawler.
By the end of the film, Holland’s Peter Parker had been erased from everyone’s memory, paving the way for an intriguing future for Spider-Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The actor was rumored to be in talks to return for a new Spider-Man trilogy, but he doesn’t seem to have signed on yet. The Angler’s Jeff Sneider provides an update on Sony’s future plans for the character in a new report.
“Okay, so Sony may not have the biggest bench in terms of franchises, but it wisely made a deal with Marvel Studios to get its marquee character Spider-Man into the MCU, which helped make the studio’s solo Spidey movies must-sees, even more so.
And while plans are in motion for another Spidey trilogy starring Tom Holland, I don’t believe he has actually signed a deal yet, so those plans remain unofficial for now. That said, I’m sure that more Spidey adventures with Holland are a top priority for Rothman & Co., which is also counting on him as the anchor of its budding Uncharted franchise as well.”
Sony executive Tom Rothman recently told Deadline that he wants Holland, Zendaya, and director Jon Watts to return for a fourth film.
“That whole group, we hope,” Rothman replied when asked if Holland, Zendaya, and Watts are returning. “Then there are movies I would call adjunct to the Spider-Man universe. That’s Kraven, which we’re shooting now, and Madame Web, which we’ll start in the spring with S.J. Clarkson directing. And then there are many Marvel characters that are standalone.
When I took over Sony, it was said, ‘Oh, Sony has no IP.’ Not true. We actually had fantastic IP. We just needed to focus on it. We had Jumanji, Bad Boys, and Uncharted.
Ghostbusters is another example. Just before I got here, they took a turn down a road that didn’t work out that well. But because of Jason Reitman and his relationship with Ivan, may he rest in peace, we were able to resuscitate that into a tremendous success, both theatrically and in-home entertainment.”
For the first time in Spider-cinematic Man’s history, our friendly neighborhood hero is unmasked and no longer able to separate his normal life from the high stakes of being a Super Hero in Spider-Man: No Way Home.
When he wants help from Doctor Strange, the stakes rise even higher, forcing him to discover what it truly means to be Spider-Man. Tom Holland, Benedict Cumberbatch, Zendaya, Jacob Batalon, Marisa Tomei, Jon Favreau, Andrew Garfield, Tobey Maguire, J.K. Simmons, Jamie Foxx, Alfred Molina, Thomas Haden Church, Rhys Ifans, and Willem Dafoe appear in the film.
