Even though Spider-Man actually leaves the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Tom Holland returns to replay the character in a third film after the box-office hit Spider-Man: Far From Home. Holland appeared at the Keystone Comic-Con in Philadelphia this weekend (after his separate appearance on Disney's D23), where he confirmed that Spider-Man films in which he plays the lead role, according to GameSpot sister site ComicBook, "definitely more is to be expected "
In fact, Holland pointed out that he and the creative team have already made a third Spider-Man movie. It has already been confirmed that the authors Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers of Far From Home will return for the third film, but it is not known if director Jon Watts is also coming back. It has recently been reported that Marvel is now trying to engage Watts for another film.
Holland said the new Spider-Man movie will definitely be "completely different", but whether that's it or not. Spider-Man's exit from the MCU is unknown.
"We've teamed up with some of our creators and we've chosen Spider-Man 3, which will be something special and something different," Holland said.
Holland also talked about his future as Spider-Man and he talked about Marvel in the past tense with Sony as his future.
"I'm just so thankful that Marvel has changed my life and made my dreams come true, and Sony allows me to continue living my dream," he said. "It's a crazy week and it's never been done, so we'll see how it goes and it will be so amazing and so entertaining."
Last week, it became known that Disney and Marvel could not agree on terms regarding the future of Spider-Man films. Sony holds the film rights to Spider-Man, and years ago Sony and Disney agreed to incorporate Spider-Man into the MCU, starting with Captain America: Civil War. It was never expected that this deal would last forever, and now it seems to end.
Sony has a long history of producing its own Spider-Man films when the company released the original Spider-Man films with Tobey Maguire and later turned the Amazing Spider-Man franchise with Andrew Garfield.
Already in July, Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige talked about how the next Spider-Man movie "has to do something completely different" due to the events of Far From Home. Once you've seen the movie, you know what it's talking about.
It's no surprise that Sony wants to do more Spider-Man films with Holland, as Homecoming and Far From Home were hugely successful at the box office. Homecoming earned $ 880 million at the box office, with Far From Home earning $ 1
Even though Spider-Man leaves the MCU, Disney will continue to benefit from the character, as he gets 100% of the money from Spider-Man merchandise. (Disney once paid Sony $ 175 million for the Merch rights, in addition to an annual license fee of approximately $ 30 million.)
In addition to Spider-Man, Sony invests in Holland with the Uncharted film in which Holland plays a role in younger Nathan Drake. The film has recently lost director Dan Trachtenberg, but Holland is still on board and the film is scheduled to be shot in early 2020.
