"We hope to get working on the next Spider-Man movie," Tom Rothman has said.
The final installment of the Spider-Man series, Spider-Man: No Way Home, released on 16 December 2021. It went on to become 2021's highest-grossing film, the sixth-highest-grossing film of all time, breaking several other box office records. The film opened the portals of the multiverse and we even saw some familiar faces from the previous Spider-Man franchises.
This film was planned as part of a trilogy with the first Spider-Man movie releasing in 2017. While we may be under the assumption that we've seen the last of Spider-Man for a while, there is a chance that there is already something cooking for fans who can't get enough.
Film producer, Amy Pascal had stated, following the release of No Way Home, "This is not the last movie that we are going to make with Marvel – [this is not] the last Spider-Man movie. We are getting ready to make the next Spider-Man movie with Tom Holland and Marvel. We're thinking of this as three films, and now we're going to go on to the next three. This is not the last of our MCU movies." So the chances of there being a fourth Spider-Man movie are pretty high.
Sony chairman Tom Rothman has provided details about the next Spider-Man movie. Speaking to Deadline he said, "Uncharted, Jumanji, Spider-Man. We have our Marvel business, which breaks into three tranches." He continued, "There are the Spider-Man movies, and we're currently at work on two Spider-Verse sequels to our Oscar-winning animated movie, with Lord and Miller." Rothman added, "We hope to get working on the next Spider-Man movie." He also shared that he hoped that the "whole group" from the Spider-Man trilogy would reprise their roles in the new films.
Rothman also provided updates on Spider-Man spin-off projects including Kraven which is currently in production, and Madam Web, starring Dakota Johson which will start production in the spring with S.J. Clarkson directing. There is a lot for Spider-Man fans in particular and Marvel fans, in general, to look forward to. It is still unsure in which phase of the MCU these films will be a part of though.

Kevin Feige another long-time Spider-Man producer along with Pascal also confirmed the possibility. “Amy and I and Disney and Sony are talking about — yes, we’re actively beginning to develop where the story heads next,” Feige said in a New York Times interview. “At the end of the movie we just made, you see Spider-Man make a momentous decision, one that you’ve never seen him make before. It’s a sacrifice. And that gives us a lot to work with for the next film.”
