Tom Holland reportedly still has not signed on for Spider-Man 4

It looks like we'll have to wait until Phase 5 of the MCU to see the first film of the second Spider-Man trilogy.


For a while, the world could not get enough of Tom Holland. After leading the way for the record-breaking multiversal MCU entry, Spider-Man: No Way Home, in December, Tom also starred in another certified hit by Sony, Uncharted.

It's crazy to think that it's been more than half a year since No Way Home premiered and broke box office records.

Both films solidified Holland and his status as a box office draw. This all but confirmed that he'll reprise his role as Peter Parker in another Spider-Man 4. But, while Holland made Sony and Disney (well, mostly Sony) a lot of money, Holland reportedly isn't sure to return - yet.

The Ankler claims that while Sony is working on multiple Spider-Man projects, Holland isn't part of one. At least, not yet.

The exclusive report states that while Sony and Marvel Studios are eager to work on a new Holland-led Spiderman trilogy, the actor himself has not "signed a deal yet." He adds that Sony and Marvel Studios' plans "remain unofficial for now."

While this is worrying, the author does reassure fans that there's no need for concern. Sony wants to resign Holland to another deal, one that will likely include the still-unconfirmed Uncharted sequel. Or, at least, that's what the writer would like us to believe.

No Way Home is a little less than $100 million shy of making the $2 billion mark.

If nothing else, this is more of a reinforcement of something that we already know. Before No Way Home premiered, Sony executive, Amy Pascal, revealed that a second Spider-Man trilogy is not guaranteed. Tom Holland also confirmed in February that there is no formal commitment for his next MCU appearance.

Ultimately, there's no use thinking about things outside of our control.

Besides, it's not like Holland's absence means that we won't be seeing more Spider-Man in the next two years. Sony has a massive slate of films that are coming in the next two years featuring Spider-Man or prominent characters in the Spider-Man universe. The main highlights are Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse and Spider-Man: Beyond the Spider-Verse, which are hitting theaters on June 2, 2023, and March 29, 2024, respectively.

Speaking of Spider-Man, we also can't rule out Andrew Garfield and a potential third The Amazing Spider-Man film after the encouraging update from a former Marvel lawyer a few weeks ago. Who knows? We might even see Garfield and Tom Hardy square off in Venom 3.
