Even though it doesn’t seem like it’s been nearly a year since Spider-Man: No Way Home, time has flown fast, and fans are impatiently awaiting word on Tom Holland, the film’s star, taking on the part again. However, recently circulated contract revisions are giving some fans online a glimmer of optimism, and everyone is guessing what the upcoming episode might bring. A number of industry insiders have flocked to social media to share posts that appear to reveal the Marvel actor has signed a new contract.
Although Tom Holland will return as Spider-Man, neither Sony nor Marvel have committed to producing future Spider-Man movies.
So what does that imply right now? There are now simply speculations and unconfirmed reports, but Lizzie Hill of The Cosmic Circus has dropped hints by tweeting “hopes Tom Holland has a wonderful day” along with an image of the actor declaring, “I am Spider-Man.” Another insider, @Culture Spider, quickly retweeted her, adding fuel to the fire.
With even more rumors about Tom Holland’s role in Avengers: The Kang Dynasty and Avengers: Secret Wars, the idea of another trilogy starring him has been floated. Even while it would seem practically impossible to have a movie that size without Spider-Man, it’s hard to predict what future Spider-Man movies would contain.
With Spider-Man: No Way Home, the Webhead had a new start in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and was able to focus solely on being the Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man rather than fighting cosmic and intergalactic threats. His arc as an honorary Avenger and Tony Stark’s protege was brought to a close by the conclusion of the trilogy, which also saw the return of Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire as former Spider-men.
In the final scene of the previous movie, Tom Holland’s Peter Parker was seen to be the familiarly destitute, impoverished, and depressingly penniless Spider-Man. The Wall Crawler was last saw swinging across New York’s streets in a new, handmade outfit that did away with all the Stark technology he had been using since (nearly) his debut in Captain America: Civil War.
Will this lead to additional street-level crossovers between Spider-Man and other Marvel heroes? is another major issue that this raises for fans, sparking wild conjecture. Marvel has previously demonstrated to audiences its willingness to change things up by bringing back fan favorite Charlie Cox as Matt Murdock in No Way Home, only for him to appear in a brand-new Daredevil outfit in She-Hulk: Attorney at Law. Could Tom Holland and the Man Without Fear collaborate?
Kingpin, played by Vincent D’onofrio, is another fan favorite from the Daredevil series who viewers are expecting to see with Tom Holland.
The last time we saw the character was in the Disney+ series Hawkeye. While plans for a Kingpin and Spidey crossover have not been officially announced, the two characters do have a history of engaging in fights that result in expensive building repairs.
