It would appear that the relationship between Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures is as contemptuous as ever regarding the much fought over teenage superhero, Peter Parker, also known as Spider-Man.
Whilst Sony allowed Marvel the use of the teen vigilante in their films Captain America: Civil War and Spider-Man: Homecoming, Holland’s next reprisal of the role is unconfirmed, at least while the two studios settle their latest dispute.
When asked what fans can expect to see next of the character, Holland said: “My next project, I can’t tell you about, but we’ve just finished ‘Spider-Man’ and we’re talking about the second one and who the villain is going to be and where we’re going”.
Nothing much seems to be confirmed as of yet, Holland said of Avengers: Infinity War and his character’s role in the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, “It’s all up in the air. I believe some sort of deal is in the mix, but I’m unclear as to what that deal is.” This delay may be, in part, due to the new head of Sony Pictures, Tim Rothman, though this has not been officially confirmed.
Tom Holland will star in Marvel’s Spider-Man: Homecoming next year. He will be reprising his role and appearing alongside the likes of Hannibal Buress, Zendaya, Michael Keaton, Marisa Tomei and Robert Downey Jr.
Spider-Man: Homecoming is set to be released July 7th, 2017 in the UK. Watch the best of Holland’s Spider-Man below:
