SPIDER-MAN: It Seems There Are No "Official" Plans In Place For New Trilogy Following NO WAY HOME
Earlier today, we reported on comments from Sony Pictures' Amy Pascal, who shared plans for a new Spider-Man trilogy starring Tom Holland. However, it seems she may have jumped the gun...
Spidey fans were very happy to hear that Sony Pictures intends to move forward with another trilogy featuring Tom Holland as the Webhead, and while those plans may indeed be in the early stages of discussion, it sounds like Amy Pascal may have jumped the gun when she revealed the news in an interview earlier today.
In THR's report on the long-time Sony Pictures producer's quotes, the trade mentions that even "though the studio has a strong relationship with Holland and Feige and hopes to continue their collaboration, there are no official plans for a trilogy at this phase."
Again, it's highly unlikely that Pascal would have made this statement if there hadn't been at least some kind of preliminary talks with Holland and Marvel Studios, but it sounds like the powers that be would rather see how Spider-Man: No Way Home does at the box office before making anything official. The threequel is arguably the most highly-anticipated comic book movie since Avengers: Endgame, so we don't imagine they'll have very much to worry about in that regard.
Of course, if recent comments from Holland are any indication, there's always a chance the actor won't want to commit to being locked into this role for another 5 or 6 years (at least).
Jon Watts is set to helm the Fantastic Four reboot for Marvel, so if and when we do get official word on more Spider-Man movies, there's a good chance a new director will be sought to (hopefully) take Peter Parker out of high school and into college - or maybe even his job at the Daily Bugle.
