Fans are growing increasingly impatient when it comes to Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios' plans for Spider-Man 4, but longtime franchise producer Amy Pascal isn't currently willing to give anything away.

Spider-Man: No Way Home earned nearly $2 billion at the box office, but with Tom Holland keen to take a break - and seemingly negotiating a lucrative new contract in public - the wall-crawler has been sidelined ever since. 

Spider-Man 4 is in the works, though we don't know who has written the script or who will eventually direct. While Jon Watts isn't expected to return, Drew Goddard, Justin Lin, and now even Sam Raimi are among the names floating around as potential replacements. 

Longtime Spider-Man franchise producer Amy Pascal was recently asked when Tom Holland and Zendaya will begin shooting the next instalment, only to issue a disappointingly blunt response in what proves to be a rather bizarre exchange. 

"I'm not telling you," Pascal stated before walking away. 

This isn't the update we know many of you will have been hoping for, and it's a shame she didn't take this chance to clear up some of the rumours and assure fans that Spider-Man 4 will begin shooting later this year. 

While it would be a touch overdramatic to say the movie is in trouble, we have heard that Sony and Marvel have very different ideas about where to take the story. The former is keen to capitalise on Spider-Man: No Way Home's success by bringing back Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield for another Multiversal adventure. 

Marvel Studios, on the other hand, is eager to deliver into Peter Parker's new status as a street-level superhero, likely pairing him up with Daredevil (and perhaps even Ant-Man) to take on the Kingpin of Crime. 

It's also been rumoured that Spider-Man 4 will introduce the MCU's version of Miles Morales. Holland has shared an interest in bringing Miles to the big screen for several years now and we'd guess the plan is for these two to team up before the younger web-slinger becomes Peter's permanent replacement.

While Holland's wall-crawler is expected to take on a lead role in Avengers 5 and Avengers: Secret Wars, it is looking increasingly likely that the next trilogy will see Peter pass the Spider-Man mantle to Miles. That may seem premature, but if we bid farewell to Holland in Spider-Man 6, for example, then he'll have had a good - and lengthy - run as the hero. 

Check out the "full" interview with Pascal in the X post below.

Dude i barely want to see Tom's Spidey again and after the NWH ending we're still gonna get Zendaya? Why?
It's because Tom wants to work with his gf, innit? :P

@Doomsday8888 - more likely it's because zendaya is a big name now.

They don’t know what to do and that’s been obvious for some time.

Amy’s always been a weird one lol…

Anyway , non answer makes me think we might get it sooner then later.

Also , I’m surprisingly interested in Challengers though mainly For Zendaya…

She seems like she I’ll be the MVP of the film.

These two studios don't seem to realize how they should be working together that could maxamize their shared interests. Sony should allow Marvel to make the Peter Parker Spiderman films fully integrated into their shared universe. Sony should then use those films to introduce other Spiderman related characters (Spider woman, Spider Gwen, Miles Morales, Kraven etc..) Then Sony should make the films featuring the newly introduced Spider-verse characters and build out a spiderverse.

You're welcome

@Forthas - yeah, I'm really surprised how Sony didn't use the momentum of NWH to spin out movies with Maguire and Garfield. Instead they went with villains that nobody knows of which universe they belong to

Since I rarely get what I want, I have no great expectations of what is coming next. But if they do go street level with Spidey and bring DD into the mix, I’d be a happier waffle than usual.

'Franchise Producer Amy Pascal Refuses To Comment'

....So much for the old axiom; 'No News Is Good News'.

A reporter asks her a question, and she openly tells him that she won't answer. The exchange seems a little playful, if anything. I don't see how this qualifies as a bizarre encounter. Meanwhile, this article presents absolutely no news while trying to fabricate drama where there actually appears to be none. Yawn.

The pitch someone made many weeks/months ago of how it should be street-level grounded but count with the piece of Venom's symbiote suit that was left behind by the end of NWH to juggle with Multiverse consequences as a way to introduce the Black Symbiote suit is still the best option of how to proceed.
