Tom Holland Clears The Air On His New Marvel/Sony Spider-Man Deal

All of this constant speculation and guesswork around Tom Holland’s Marvel future after Spider-Man: No Way Home is tiresome. There’s been teasing of a new trilogy that would see Marvel Studios and Sony continue their collaboration, with one of those movies possibly in the works already. None of this is actually coming from Holland himself, so it’s good to get the actor on the record to clarify exactly what’s going on.

“That’s not accurate at all,” Holland told THR in what must be interview number one thousand this week alone, all asking him variations of the same questions. “The new deal that was struck up was this understanding between the two studios that should Marvel want me to appear in one of their movies, then it would be an open conversation. I don’t think it’s as black and white as ‘I have a three-picture deal with Marvel and a three-picture deal with Sony.’ It’s just this open conversation and open dialogue between Mr. Iger and Mr. Rothman.”

The good news is that this encourages continued communication between Disney and Sony, to keep giving fans what they want to see most. And right now, they want more of Tom Holland as Spider-Man, and they want to see some crossovers of Sony characters into the MCU. Everything Holland is saying tells me that’s going to happen very soon.
