Tom Holland’s contract up as Spider-Man following the completion of Spider-Man: No Way Home!
In a recent interview as part of his promotion of the film Cherry, Tom Holland spoke to Collider and talk turned to Spider-Man. Holland confirmed that Spider-Man: No Way Home is the final movie of his Spider-Man contract, though he’s happy to come back.
“[Spider-Man 3] would be my last one [under contract] so I’ve always said to them if they want me back I’ll be there in a heartbeat. I’ve loved every minute of being a part of this amazing world. It’s changed my life for the better, I’m so lucky to be here. If they want me back I’ll be there, if they don’t I will walk off into the sunset a very, very happy person because it’s been an amazing journey.”
LRM covered Holland saying he would be happy to make another 10 Spider-Man movies with Marvel if they asked. You can catch that quote in the related section below.
However, the problem with Spider-Man is that Marvel do not have the final say. Whatever agreements are put in place need to work for both Marvel Studios and Sony Studios. However, contrary to what happened post Spider-Man: Far From Home, Holland thinks the current situation has left both studios happy.
“The way I understand it is that agreement between the two studios has already happened. I don’t think that they’re going to run into the same troubles that they did as we were going into… was it ‘Spider-Man 2’? ‘Far from Home’ had come out and then the whole thing happened between Sony and Marvel. I think the two studios have worked that out, and I don’t think that that will be a problem in the future. That said, I’m just the actor and I was a part of a few phone calls during that process, but I think they love working with each other, I think they found a way in which it can be beneficial for both studios, and I’m just kind of like a kid in the middle of it, between two parents during an argument (laughs).”
Let’s just hope the ‘parents’ stay together and don’t get a divorce. That would be very messy for poor little Tom. Seriously though, I hope Holland is right and he stays in the MCU for a long time to come. My worry has always been Sony offering Holland money to carry on with them and not Marvel Studios. If this situation is working for both studios, long may it continue.
