There have been many mentions of 'No Way Home' not being the last Spider-Man movie and here's everything we can expect in the next sequel.
The third installment of the Spider-Man series, Spider-Man: No Way Home, has been released and is already breaking records around the world. The film is directed by Jon Watts and was written by Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers. It stars Tom Holland, Zendaya, Benedict Cumberbatch, Jacob Batalon, alongside Jon Favreau, Jamie Foxx, Willem Dafoe, Alfred Molina, Benedict Won, and other exciting appearances.
This film was planned as part of a trilogy when the first Spider-Man movie was made in 2017. There was also a fourth installment that was in the works as No Way Home was under production. The studio was hoping that it would be led by Watts and Holland this time as well. With the resounding reception of No Way Home, here's everything we know about Spider-Man 4. Warning, spoilers ahead.
There have been many mentions of No Way Home not being the last Spider-Man movie. In fact, film producer, Amy Pascal has stated, "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."
For now, the trilogy has been wrapped up with only a possibility for a fresh start in the next installment.
While it is still unclear what the next Spider-Man film will be about, there have been clues left behind in the form of the signature MCU post-credit scenes. In the credits of Venom: Let There Be Carnage, we saw Venom enter the MCU in what looked like a setup for a showdown with Spider-Man. This was further teased at the end of No Way Home when he appeared in the credits scene again. At the end of No Way Home, there is a lonely Peter Parker left behind to fend for himself. And a showdown between him and Venom could be the premise of the next Spider-Man film.
There is also the possibility that with the multiverse opened, Spider-Man in other dimensions could be a part of the next narrative with a reappearance of Spider-Men of the past, in new narratives.
The studio has a good relationship with Holland and would be willing to continue in the future with him. But the 24-year-old has expressed his desire to take a break from the franchise. "Maybe it is time for me to move on. I have to take Peter Parker into account as well because he is an important part of my life" Holland said of his role. "If I'm playing Spider-Man after I'm 30, I've done something wrong."
What we do know is Marisa Tomei as Aunt May will not be coming back to the next movie. We may also be seeing Tom Hardy as Venom if the theory checks out. And there is also the possibility that we may be seeing Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire reprise their roles.
So far, the films have been released after a duration of about two years. This could mean that the next movie can be released in late 2023 or early 2024.
