Three more MCU Spider-Man movies are reportedly on the way after Spider-Man: No Way Home, meaning Tom Holland’s Peter Parker can break an MCU record.
With Tom Holland reportedly set to return for a new MCU Spider-Man trilogy after Spider-Man: No Way Home, his web-slinging franchise will break an MCU record. Tom Holland’s MCU future has long been subject of much speculation and doubt, as Sony and Marvel’s Spider-Man deal broke down in 2019, before then being saved to bring him back for one more solo movie. Beyond that, it’s again been unclear whether or not Holland would continue in the MCU, or if he’d be transferred over to Sony’s Spider-Man Universe, although given his popularity in the role it was at least somewhat expected that Marvel and Sony would find a way to make it work once again.
That appears to be the case. Holland himself may have played coy and been uncharacteristically secretive with regards to his future, but producer Amy Pascal has confirmed in an interview that there will be Spider-Man 4, 5, and 6 in the MCU following on from No Way Home, which closes out the current trilogy that started back in 2017 with Spider-Man: Homecoming. While it remains to be seen when the new Spider-Man movies will happen and whether or not Sony and Marvel keep the pace of releasing one every two years, it should at least solidify Holland’s future in the MCU for the short and medium term.
Appearing in a trio of new Spider-Man movies can give Holland’s Peter Parker a new MCU record: the most solo movies in any one franchise. With Spider-Man 4, 5, and 6 reportedly planned, then that would take the Spider-Man movies far beyond the other MCU solo characters. As it stands, Iron Man, Captain America, and Thor all have three each, with Odinson set to be the first MCU character to get four solo movies with the release of Thor: Love and Thunder in 2022 (and Captain America 4 is also in development at Marvel, though it’s focused on Anthony Mackie’s Sam Wilson rather than Chris Evans’ Steve Rogers). Whether those characters then get a fifth installment is unclear, but even if they do Spider-Man’s six movies would outstrip them both for the MCU record.
Looking beyond just solo outings, Spider-Man 4, 5, and 6 happening would also push past the Avengers too, which currently has four movies (although The Avengers 5 at some point, in some form, seems inevitable). This would set a record for Spider-Man movies in general too: not only would Holland be the first to get a Spider-Man 4, after Sam Raimi’s own plans fell through, but it would mean he has more solo Spider-Man movies than Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield combined (excluding their potential appearance in Spider-Man: No Way Home, of course).
The next Spider-Man trilogy breaking an MCU record shows just how important both Peter Parker and Tom Holland have become to Marvel’s plans. Holland is already an incredibly popular movie star, and that’s only likely to keep on rising. Likewise, Spider-Man is historically Marvel’s biggest character, and this should ensure he remains at the very heart of the MCU, which is where he belongs. There are plenty more directions the MCU can go in with Holland’s take on Spider-Man, while perhaps introducing other versions of the character, which the next Spider-Man trilogy can explore.
