Does ‘No Way Home’ mark the end of Tom Holland’s tenure as Spider-Man? While a new trilogy is planned, the main interested party answered the question.
After months of anticipation and speculation, audiences finally got to experience Spider-Man No Way Home in December and find out which of the characters from previous sagas have returned.
Upon arrival, an almost delirious enthusiasm in theaters and a monumental card (1.694 billion dollars in revenue worldwide to date, the sixth biggest success in history) which somewhat made you forget that it was about the last film in the contract of Tom Holland.
While Marvel and Sony have already announced that they will be working hand in hand on the next Spider-Man trilogy, the identity of the actor who will be the headliner remains a mystery. And don’t count on Tom Holland to help you figure it out.
“I may have been on a tour where all I did was lie, but honestly – and you’re not going to like the truth – I don’t know the answer to that question”, he replied in a conversation organized by Deadline.
I like this character. I know I’m not ready to say goodbye to him.
“[Spider-Man No Way Home] was as special to me as such an experience could be. I do not know. There’s a part of me that thinks it’s the perfect time to jump off a building and swing into the setting sun, and let the next lucky kid come along and give him the costume.”
“I love this character. I know I’m not ready to say goodbye to him. But if it’s time to do it, I’ll do it proudly, knowing that I’ve managed to do everything I wanted in his skin. If it’s time, it’s time. If not, no.”
Spoiler-free, the final scene of Spider-Man No Way Home leaves the door open for Tom Holland. Both to leave and to return. A way for Marvel and Sony to cover their backs and calmly plan the future of the saga. With Peter Parker or Miles Morales, who could take up the torch to the delight of fans.
