Spider-Man 4 is coming – eventually, that’s according to Tom Rothman, the current head and CEO of Sony Pictures Motion Picture Group. In a conversation with The Hollywood Reporter, Rothman confirmed that a fourth film would see the light of day. “You bet,” Rothman said. As for a release date, this remains unclear. “When you can expect it, I don’t know. Serve no wine before it’s time,” Rothman added.
Furthermore, it remains unknown whether or not Tom Holland will reprise his role as the web-swinger. At the end of Spider-Man: No Way Home, Doctor Strange casts a spell on the world to ensure everyone forgets Peter Parker and in the process, protect the wider multiverse. The film fittingly concluded Holland’s trilogy arc, which started with Spider-Man: Homecoming in 2017.
A fourth Spider-Man film could instead mark the beginning of a new era and serve as another reboot for the character. Plus, there are no plans to bring Spider-Man back into the MCU, despite the studio unveiling their plans for Phase 5 and Phase 6. It is however, the age of the multiverse, so anything’s possible.
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.
For more Spider-Man content, Alfred Molina recently discussed how he accidentally revealed his involvement in No Way Home. “I got into a bit of trouble over the last iteration because I happened to let the cat out of the bag quite innocently,” he said. Plus, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever broke a box office record.
