Earlier this week, producer Amy Pascal had a lot to say about the future of Spider-Man at Sony Pictures, particularly Tom Holland and the Marvel relationships. We reported on this at the time.
According to the interview, Spider-Man: No Way Home will definitely not be the last movie starring Tom Holland and she even went as far as to talk about another trilogy of movies. She specifically said:
“…we are getting ready to make the next Spider-Man movie with Tom Holland and Marvel. We’re thinking of this as three films, and now we’re going to go on to the next three. This is not the last of our MCU movies.”
Not so fast Amy! Maybe she thought the North Koreans might be reading her emails again so wanted to give them something to talk about, but Sony “insiders” have apparently watered this down almost immediately. According to The Hollywood Reporter this is not the case:
“Sony insiders note though the studio has a strong relationship with Holland and Feige and hopes to continue their collaboration, there are no official plans for a trilogy at this phase.”
Amy, Amy, Amy – you don’t run the studio anymore! No deals are in place yet. However the news of Spider-Man: No Way Home pre-sales hitting Avengers: Endgame levels and opening night tickets turning up online at inflated prices might mean that talks will begin in earnest over Christmas.
Cinema needs more big hits as box-office is only turning out for big names post-pandemic and Marvel remains the biggest name in town right now.
