How Many More Spider-Man Movies Tom Holland Says Marvel Wants to Make

Tom Holland as Spider-Man

He may have only been added to the Marvel Cinematic Universe last year, but Spider-Man's enduring popularity means he's guaranteed to have a bright future in this franchise. Next month Tom Holland's Peter Parker will shine in Spider-Man: Homecoming, and the Web-Slinger will return next year for Avengers: Infinity War. Spider-Man: Homecoming 2 is also scheduled for 2019, but according to Holland, Marvel plans on making at least one more Spidey movie after that. The actor said:

Yes, there will be Spider-Man: Homecoming 2 and Spider-Man: Homecoming 3. Now, you know, sorry, Marvel, oops!

To be clear, neither Marvel nor Sony, which are working together on the new Spider-Man movies, have officially announced that Spider-Man: Homecoming 3 is in the works, but Tom Holland has evidently heard the studios are already working on a third outing for the third cinematic Wall-Crawler. Given the two-year gap between Spider-Man: Homecoming and its sequel, that would mean that Spider-Man: Homecoming 3 would likely come out sometime in 2021, although depending on what other movies Marvel has in development, it's possible that it could be saved until 2022 or even 2023. Regardless, Holland promised Allocine that there's a lot of material for this new Spider-Man trilogy to show moviegoers, saying:

There is still plenty of room to see Peter Parker grow up and... at the end of Spider-Man: Homecoming, the story is definitely not complete. I'm really looking forward to exploring how it grows and to see what will happen after puberty. Yes, [they are] going to be exciting movies.

Tom Holland's Spider-Man is one of the newest heroes in the MCU, only gaining his arachnid-like powers approximately half a year before the events of Captain America: Civil War. While the previous two Spider-Man movie series showed Peter Parker in high school, the Homecoming series is placing extra emphasis on Peter's time as a teenager, both with his studies and by being the "new kid" in the world of crimefighting. Holland has also expressed interest in the MCU showing his Peter going to college and still beating up bad guys well into adulthood, to the point that the actor is comfortable playing the character for another 20 years. Whether or not Holland's wish is granted remains to be seen, but going off the available information, it sounds like we'll be sticking with the MCU's Peter at least until he graduates high school.

After aiding Iron Man and the other pro-Sokovia Accords heroes in Captain America: Civil War, Spider-Man: Homecoming will follow up with Peter Parker a few months later to show how his superhero career is progressing. However, he'll face his greatest challenge yet when he not only has to deal with a group of thieves (led by The Vulture) armed with advanced technology, but must eventually face them without the suit his mentor, Tony Stark, built for him.

Spider-Man: Homecoming spins its web in theaters on July 7.
