Disney might have been able to secure a brand new deal with Sony allowing Tom Holland’s Spider-Man to stay in the Marvel Cinematic Universe for a few more films, however, there are reports saying that the web-slinger may stay in the franchise for much longer.
According to a report by We Got This Covered, sources close to Marvel say that the studio has major plans for Holland in the MCU. Marvel Studio is supposedly planning to keep the actor longer than what Sony and Disney originally signed in for.
Marvel is reportedly in talks with Holland to sign in for six more films in the MCU. This deal is supposed to include three standalone movies to come after Marvel develops Spider-Man 3 and three different movies outside of the Spider-Man film franchise.
We Got This Covered inside sources say that Marvel is hoping to follow Peter Parker’s entire story. Not only do they want to see Peter leave high school, they want to see him enter college, graduate from university, and explore his life as an adult.
Holland’s Spider-Man has certainly been a hit among fans – so we’re not entirely surprised to hear that Marvel wants more of the actor in the MCU. Fans were cheering for Holland the moment he appeared in Captain America: Civil War, many calling the actor’s iteration of the wallcrawler one of the most comic book-accurate versions of Spider-Man to date.
Of course, as exciting as this new report might be, we advise fans to take everything with a large grain of salt. We’ll have to wait for confirmation from Marvel before believing anything.
Phase 4 of the MCU begins when Black Widow premieres on November 6, 2020.
