Despite Marvel and Sony’s breakup, Tom Holland will return as Peter Parker in a third Spider-Man movie. Speaking at Keystone Comic Con in Philadelphia, Holland suggested his next outing as Spidey would be special and different.
“It’s not the end of me playing Spider-Man,” Holland told an audience at Keystone Comic Con in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. “There’s definitely more to come. We sat down with some of our creatives. We pitched Spider-Man 3, which is going to be something very special, it’s going to be something very different. I’m just so grateful that Marvel changed my life and allowed my dreams to come true and Sony allowing me to continue living my dream. It’s a crazy week and it’s never been done before so we’ll see how it goes and it’ll be as amazing and as fun.”
These comments echo the ones he made to press at this weekend’s D23 Expo. “Basically, we’ve made five great movies,” Holland explained. “It’s been five amazing years. I’ve had the time of my life. Who knows what the future holds? But all I know is that I’m going to continue playing Spider-Man and having the time of my life. It’s going to be so fun however we choose to do it. The future for Spider-Man will be different, but it will be equally as awesome and amazing, and we’ll find new ways to make it even cooler.”
The news of Sony and Disney’s split came after Spider-Man: Far From Home became the highest-grossing movie for the former ever, beating out 2012’s Skyfall. As of writing, Far From Home has grossed over $1.115 billion worldwide.
Now in theaters, director Jon Watts’ Spider-Man: Far From Home stars Tom Holland, Samuel L. Jackson, Zendaya, Cobie Smulders, Jon Favreau, JB Smoove, Jacob Batalon and Martin Starr, with Marisa Tomei and Jake Gyllenhaal.
