Spider-Man: Homecoming Star Confirms Marvel Is Planning A Spidey Trilogy

Following his appearance in last summer’s Captain America: Civil War, Spider-Man returns to screens next month in Spider-Man: Homecoming. Now star Tom Holland has revealed that it will be the first part of a trilogy of movies.

Speaking to the French site Allo Ciné, Holland spoke about the future of his character. “There is what we call the arc of the character,” he said, via Superherohype. “There is still a lot of room for Peter Parker and Spider-Man, especially, to grow in the next two movies. He’s definitely not the finished article by the end of Spider-Man: Homecoming and I really look forward to exploring the different ways he can grow up and… go through puberty I guess. It’s going to be an exciting couple of movies.”

When the interviewer questioned Holland’s reference to “the next two movies”, Holland confirmed that there would be a trilogy: “There will be a Spider-Man 2 and 3. Yeah, well now you know. Sorry Marvel. Whoops!”

While it isn’t surprising that Marvel want to make more Spider-Man films, there is an added legal complication. Sony owns the movie rights to the character, and in 2015 agreed a deal to allow Marvel to use Spidey in its Cinematic Universe.

However, comments earlier this year from former Sony exec Amy Pascal suggest that the deal only covers one more standalone Spider-Man film. In addition, Sony have set a 2018 release date for the Spider-Man spinoff Venom, although Homecoming director Jon Watts has stated that Venom is not connected to the MCU.

Spider-Man: Homecoming opens on July 7 and also stars Michael Keaton, Robert Downey Jr, Marisa Tomei, and Donald Glover. A new trailer was released last week–check it out here.

Hey everyone, I'm Jonathan but people will know me as Jon... I enjoy hiking and exploring the outside world as well as getting to see fantastic views. It can bring you to the most beautiful places on earth and into contact with amazing plants and wildlife and can be done all year round which is why I enjoy it so much despite it being challenging sometimes due to the weather - it has allowed me to meet a lot of new people and experience things I wouldn't have before. I also find it relaxing and interesting. I also really enjoy blogging and sharing my experiences with similar people. Hopefully you will read mine. My company Adventures Gate displays my other hobby - gaming! I love collecting items to do with gaming and playing in general. I guess I am a bit of a geek when it comes to this. Adventures Gate now offer free postage options when you spend more than £20 (there may be a small additional charge for larger items). That`s free 1st class post in the UK and free airmail to Europe.
