Tom Holland also previously stated that Spider-Man: No Way Home will be the end of the Homecoming trilogy. He then made it clear that a fourth film featuring the webhead isn’t impossible. Holland further added that Marvel would build something different with a possible fourth film.
It was also previously reported that Spider-Man: No Way Home will mark the beginning of the shared universe with Sony and Marvel. Holland even admitted that he didn’t think the script would work at first.
As reported earlier, franchise producer Amy Pascal recently revealed that after the end of the original trilogy, Tom Holland will be starring in yet another trilogy that, much to the delight of fans. Holland was excited at this news as well.
While speaking to CinemaBlend, Tom Holland revealed how he helped save the Spider-Man deal between Sony and Marvel, as he was likely to leave the MCU a couple of years ago. It all came down to him pouring his heart out to then-Disney CEO Bob Iger about the situation.
“I was at the pub quiz, I was pretty drunk because I was really upset that I wasn’t going to be in the MCU anymore. No, I got a phone call from a 310 number; I knew that Bob Iger was going to be calling me but I thought it was going to happen a couple days prior. So I thought I had kind of given up on the phone call, and then I got this call and it was him. Bob and I had a lovely chat we spoke about my passions for the character.
I think I spoke about the importance of Spider-Man in the MCU and what I can offer and what I can bring to the table. I think that really resonated with him, and he really heard how much I love this character and how much I believe in him and I think through that conversation, he then opened up a bigger conversation between himself and [Sony Pictures Chairman] Tom Rothman and [Sony Pictures CEO] Tony Vinciquerra and they were able to make a deal.”
Holland also recently stated that the film will be very dark and sad and not fun at all. With Spider-Man: No Way Home promising to be one of the most ambitious films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it is likely they will be bringing in many characters from the previous Spider-Man films. We will have to see how the film will become the bridge between the MCU and Sony’s universes.
