Actor Tom Holland is currently in talks to sign on for another Spider-Man trilogy and Marvel fans couldn’t be more excited. Recently, Holland had been teasing that the upcoming film, Spider-Man: No Way Home, should be treated as the “end of a franchise” as it serves as the last of the Homecoming trilogy. Sony’s latest film in the franchise broke the $1 billion global box office mark over the weekend, a pandemic-era first.
In a video appearance at the CCXP Comic-Con in Brazil, via YouTube, Spider-Man: No Way Home star Tom Holland offered fans an exciting glimpse into what’s coming in his third MCU solo outing. “I know people say this a lot, but I mean it when I say that you’re gonna see things in this movie that you’ve never, ever seen before. I’m talking about pumpkin bombs, sandstorms, the Multiverse, which, ok, you might have seen them before, but I promise, not like this and not together.”, says Holland.
Holland followed up and talked more about Peter Parker’s future in the MCU after No Way Home by confirming that the web-slinger “is finally heading off to college” in a world that “knows that he is Spider-Man.” This comes as the first sign of confirmation that the web-slinger’s MCU journey will continue in a big way.
“Also, Peter Parker is finally heading off to college, and the word is out. So yeah, everyone knows that he is Spider-Man. So throw your fan theories out the window, they’re probably not true. Or are they? And get ready to see one of the most ambitious films we’ve ever made. An incredible story with lots of heart, laughter, high-flying action, mind-blowing effects, and some insane villains. No Way Home is the culmination of the Homecoming trilogy and the start of a Multiverse of possibilities.”
It makes sense that the next trilogy would focus on Peter Parker going off to college. In the past Spider-Man films, we saw that college was yet another responsibility that Parker had to juggle while maintaining his post as New York’s friendly neighborhood protector. Not only will we see the beginning of Peter Parker’s life as a college student in the next trilogy, but Disney+ announced that an animated series is slated to release — highlighting Parker’s freshman year.
