“Spider-Man: No Way Home” will be the final Marvel film for actor Tom Holland, at least for the time being, according to Collider.

What’s going on?

Holland told Collider that his contract with Marvel will end with the upcoming third “Spider-Man” film. He said he will take a break. However, he said he would come back if Marvel wants him to do so.

  • “(‘Spider-Man 3’) would be my last one (under contract) so I’ve always said to them if they want me back I’ll be there in a heartbeat. I’ve loved every minute of being a part of this amazing world. It’s changed my life for the better, I’m so lucky to be here. If they want me back I’ll be there, if they don’t I will walk off into the sunset a very, very happy person because it’s been an amazing journey.”

Holland also told Collider that Sony and Marvel — who currently share the rights to the Spider-Man character — have a deal in place for future films.

  • “The way I understand it is that agreement between the two studios has already happened. ... That said, I’m just the actor and I was a part of a few phone calls during that process, but I think they love working with each other, I think they found a way in which it can be beneficial for both studios, and I’m just kind of like a kid in the middle of it, between two parents during an argument (laughs).”

‘Spider-Man’ title reveal

On Wednesday, Marvel announced the next “Spider-Man” film will be called: “Spider-Man: No Way Home,” as I wrote about for the Deseret News.

  • Holland and his “Spider-Man” co-stars Jacob Batalon and Zendaya appeared in a video that showed off the new title. That video came after a wild 24 hours of “Spider-Man” actors sharing different title names for the film on social media.

According to Polygon, the different titles were a sign that “Spider-Man” is pivoting toward adding the multiverse to its story. These titles were a sign that “Spider-Man 3” is going to include alternate universes, too, according to Polygon.
