Tom Holland’s potential return for Spider-Man 4 addressed by Sony

Spider-Man: No Way Home spoilers follow.

Since Spider-Man: No Way HomeMarvel fans have had one question … will Tom Holland return for Spider-Man 4?

Sony bosses have now addressed whether the actor will return in the titular role, after his trilogy finished with the world forgetting Peter Parker.

Tom Rothman, chairman of Sony’s Motion Picture Group, admitted he ‘hopes’ that Sony will work on another Spider-Man (spirit Spider-Verse 2), though he did not confirm the cast.

“We have our Marvel business, which breaks into three tranches,” he told Deadline. “There are the Spider-Man movies, and we’re currently at work on two Spider-Verse sequels to our Oscar winning animated movie, with Lord and Miller. We hope to get working on the next Spider-Man movie. “

When he was asked if Tom Holland and his co-star Zendaya, who plays MJ, would return with Jon Watts to direct, once again Rothman said he ‘hopes’ that they will all return.

“That whole group, we hope,” he said. “Then there are movies I would call adjunct to the Spider-Man universe. That’s The requirementswhich we’re shooting now, and Madame Webwhich we’ll start in the spring with SJ Clarkson directing.

“And then there are many Marvel characters that are standalone. When I took over Sony, it was said, ‘Oh, Sony has no IP’. Not true.”

This comes after Holland hinted that No Way Home might have been his last outing in the suit.

“There definitely was a sense for me, as an actor, that this was the last time I could potentially don the suit,” he told Deadline earlier this year, “so a lot of that emotion came from the act of saying goodbye, which is one of the biggest themes throughout this film.”

Alongside the successful Spider-Man movies that culminated in Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield returning for No Way Home, Sony has also been regenerating their other franchises since Rothman arrived.

Rothman said: “We actually had fantastic IP. We just needed to focus on it. We had Jumanji, Bad Boys, Uncharted, Ghostbusters. Just before I got here, they took a turn down a road that did not work out that well.

“But because of Jason Reitman and his relationship with Ivan, may he rest in peace, we were able to resuscitate that into a tremendous success, both theatrically and in home entertainment.”

Spider-Man: No Way Home is available to buy now on Prime Video, iTunes, Microsoft Store and other digital retailers.
