Spider-Man: No Way Home was irrefutably one of the biggest films from Phase 4 of the MCU, bringing back a wealth of iconic villains and not one, but three web-swingers to join Tom Holland in what was set to be the finale of his trilogy. Spider-Man is notably absent from the Phase 5 and 6 lineups. Kevin Feige, the President of Marvel Studios, has now confirmed that a fourth Spider-Man entry featuring Tom Holland is being written, with a story already in place.
“All I will say is that we have the story,” Feige said in an interview with Entertainment Weekly. He added that the studio had “big ideas” for where Tom Holland’s Spidey would go next. The next film is likely a few years away, but Feige informed the outlet that writers had already started “putting pen to paper.”
Spider-Man: No Way Home, which grossed more than $1.9 billion in the box office in 2021, picks up the story following the events of Far From Home. Framed for Quentin Beck’s murder and exposed to the world as Spider-Man, Holland’s Peter Parker reaches out to Doctor Strange to cast a spell that would make everyone forget his identity.
The spell goes wrong, and the multiverse opens onto New York City, bringing back classic Spidey villains from other universes. Spider-Man: No Way Home stars Tom Holland, Zendaya, Jacob Batalon, Benedict Cumberbatch, Marisa Tomei, Tobey Maguire, Andrew Garfield, Willem Dafoe, Jamie Foxx, Alfred Molina, Charlie Cox, and Tom Hardy.
Tobey Maguire recently expressed interest in reprising his role as Spider-Man for a future film.
