Kevin Feige Discusses Future of Tom Holland’s Spider-Man

Tom Holland will be reprising his Spider–Man role within the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), and Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige says they are already working on his comeback.

“All I will say is that we have the story,” Feige said in an interview with Entertainment Weekly. “We have big ideas for that, and our writers are just putting pen to paper now.”

Feige stopped short in revealing what the future holds for Spidey and if it meant a new solo film or an appearance in one of the Avengers films. Holland last donned the Spider–Man costume in Spider–Man: No Way Home, which was a big box office hit grossing more than $1.9 billion globally. The film saw the hero teaming up with past Spideys played by Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield.

In late 2021, producer Amy Pascal teased that they were in the process of working on a new Spider–Man trilogy starring Tom Holland once again.

“This is not the last movie that we are going to make with Marvel – [this is not] the last Spider–Man movie,” Pascal told Fandango. “We are getting ready to make the next Spider–Man movie with Tom Holland and Marvel. We’re thinking of this as three films, and now we’re going to go onto the next three. This is not the last of our MCU movies.”

Avengers: Secret Wars is one of the movies Marvel Studios is working on and is set to release on May 1, 2026. The 12–issue comic book saga ran in the mid–1980s and has Spider–Man teaming up with other Avengers like Captain America, Hawkeye, Captain Marvel, Hulk, Iron Man, and more.

Paul King to Direct Tom Holland’s Fred Astaire Movie

Holland, the star of the ‘Spider–Man’ movies, will portray the actor–dancer–singer behind classic films such as ‘Swing Time’ and ‘Funny Face.’

Paul King, the director of the Paddington movies, is putting on his dancing shoes.

King has come aboard to direct Sony Pictures’ untitled Fred Astaire drama that has Tom Holland attached to star as the golden age film and dance star.

Amy Pascal, Rachael O’Conner, Ben Holden and Josh Hyams are producing.

Sony is keeping the logline details under the top hat, but it is known that the project centers on the relationship between Astaire and his sister, Adele Astaire. The two were inseparable for more than 20 years, moving out of a simple Midwestern vaudeville act in the early part of the 20th Century to Broadway and London’s West End in the 1920s. Adele Astaire was initially the face of the act, but eventually, Fred’s consummate stage skills eclipsed hers. The duo parted in 1932 when the sister married, which was a blow to Fred, but it also turned his focus toward Hollywood dance musicals, and subsequently set him on the path to cinematic immortality.

Sony had no comment.

The project has been percolating for several years and now has Lee Hall, who wrote the popular dance–centric drama Billy Elliot, rewriting the script by Noah Pink. The project is a reunion of sorts for Hall and Holland as the latter had a career breakthrough when he starred as the titular ballet–loving boy in the West End adaptation of the movie, titled Billy Elliot: The Musical, from 2008 to 2010.

It is unclear what kind of tone the project will offer, but King has demonstrated a choreographer’s touch with the two beloved Paddington movies, released in 2014 and 2017, which were critical and box office hits, collectively earning nearly $500 million globally. King co–wrote the screenplay and is executive producing the third film in the series, which is in development and due to be helmed by Dougal Wilson. He most recently wrapped production on Warner Bros.’ Wonka, a Willy Wonka origin story starring Timothée Chalamet.

Hall’s writing credits include Rocketman, starring Taron Egerton, and Steven Spielberg’s Academy Award–nominated War Horse. Billy Elliot earned him an Academy Award nomination for best screenplay.

King is repped by WME and Independent Talent Group. Hall is repped by CAA, Hansen Jacobson, and the U.K.’s Judy Daish Associates.

‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ Achieves Second Biggest Domestic Opening Weekend

“Spider-Man: No Way Home” has generated even more money in its box office debut than initially reported.

Sony’s epic finale in the Tom Holland-led comic book trilogy collected a mind-blowing $260 million in North American theaters over the weekend, above Sunday’s estimates of $253 million. It means “No Way Home” has now surpassed “Avengers: Infinity War” ($257 million) to land the second-biggest debut in Hollywood history behind only “Avengers: Endgame” ($357 million). Not bad for pandemic times.

Internationally, “Spider-Man: No Way Home” captured $340.8 million from 60 overseas markets, pushing its global tally to $600.8 million. It stands as the third-biggest worldwide launch ever after “Avengers: Endgame” ($1.2 billion) and “Avengers: Infinity War” ($640 million).

Naturally, the newest Marvel adventure has obliterated COVID-era box office benchmarks. Prior to this weekend, no movie had been able to cross $100 million in a single weekend. The best attempt had been another Sony’s comic book sequel, “Venom: Let There Be Carnage,” which generated $90 million to start. Given those constraints and the pandemic-related headwinds still facing the box office, industry watchers struggled to ballpark opening weekend figures for “Spider-Man: No Way Home.” Concerns over the rapidly spreading Omicron variant of COVID-19 did little to stifle box office revenues.

Pent-up demand to witness Marvel’s friendly neighborhood Spider-Man, along with key adversaries in Doc Ock (Alfred Molina), Green Goblin (Willem Dafoe) and Electro (Jamie Foxx), pushed the Jon Watts-directed “No Way Home” to stratospheric heights. Superhero enthusiasts wanted to be first in line to witness a colliding multiverse of epic proportions and, perhaps more importantly, avoid spoilers online. It translated to record opening day ticket sales. On Friday alone, the film collected $121 million, which is more than than Holland’s previous Parker ventures, 2017’s “Homecoming ($117 million debut) and 2019’s “Far From Home” ($92 million debut), collected in their respective opening weekends.

“No Way Home” amassed another $73 million on Saturday and $64 million on Sunday, with premium large formats like Imax accounting for a sizable chunk of ticket sales. After only three days in cinemas, “Spider-Man: No Way Home” is already the highest grossing-film of this year — and last year.

Anticipation for Peter Parker’s big-screen return had been so tremendous that AMC Theatres, the world’s biggest exhibition chain, sold a record 7 million tickets over the weekend while notching several company benchmarks in the process, including the biggest December opening of all time and post-reopening domestic attendance records. AMC says that for the first time since December 2019, when “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker” hit the big screen, the movie theater chain has sold at least 1 million tickets each day between Thursday and Sunday.

“Historically, December is one of the biggest months of the year for major blockbuster releases, so to see ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ set a new all-time opening weekend box office record this month is significant not just for AMC, but for the entire theatrical industry,” said Adam Aron, AMC’s chairman and CEO. “We commend our friends at Sony Pictures and Marvel on their wonderfully successful movie, which millions of people have already watched at a U.S. AMC theatre in just four days.”

At Cinemark, another major circuit, “No Way Home” is battling to be the second-biggest opening in history.

“Spider-Man fans proved they are some of the most enthusiastic moviegoers with their record-breaking support of the film’s debut around the world, making this live-action multiverse an international sensation that must be seen on the big screen,” said Justin McDaniel, Cinemark’s senior VP of global content.

‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ Producer Amy Pascal Confirms Tom Holland’s Future

In an interview with Fandango, producer Amy Pascal confirms that Tom Holland will continue on as Spider-Man for an additional three movies! Check out the segment below, and you can read the interview at the source.

Happy Spider-Monday! It’s being billed as Spider-Man: Endgame – a Spider-Man movie so big and so historic, it’s pulling in characters from across 20 years of live-action Spider-Man movies. This third film in the “Homecoming” trilogy, Spider-Man: No Way Home, will wrap up a trilogy of films that began with 2017’s Spider-Man: Homecoming, and continued with 2019’s Spider-Man: Far From Home, but it won’t be the last we see of Tom Holland’s Spider-Man. Not by a long shot.

With tickets now on sale for Spider-Man: No Way Home, Fandango spoke with producer Amy Pascal, who was not only an integral part of the earlier Spider-Man film franchises starring Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield, but she was also a key figure in negotiating the game-changing collaboration between Sony Pictures – which owns the film rights for Spider-Man – and Marvel Studios – which makes films and TV shows for Disney’s Marvel Cinematic Universe. Pascal was quick to confirm that Sony will continue to collaborate with Marvel Studios on Spider-Man movies, and those movies will indeed star Tom Holland.

“This is not the last movie that we are going to make with Marvel – [this is not] the last Spider-Man movie,” Pascal revealed. “We are getting ready to make the next Spider-Man movie with Tom Holland and Marvel. We’re thinking of this as three films, and now we’re going to go onto the next three. This is not the last of our MCU movies.”

Before that next trilogy of films begin for Holland’s Spider-Man, he must first contend with a multiversal story that will push the character and test him in ways not yet seen in the previous two films. Ahead, Pascal teases the high stakes of the film, the difficulty of keeping its massive story and character lineup a secret, and how it fits in alongside Sony’s other Marvel movies, like Venom and the upcoming Morbius (in theaters January 28).

‘No Way Home’ First-Day Global Trailer Views Smash ‘Endgame’s All-Time Record

Sony is guaranteed to have a huge hit on its hands with Spider-Man: No Way Home this coming December.

Like, really huge.

After dropping the teaser at CinemaCon and on social media Monday night, the trailer for Spider-Man: No Way Home racked up an-all time viewership record of 355.5 million global views in its first 24 hours, blowing away the previous record holder, Disney/Marvel’s Avengers: Endgame, which drove 289M views. Simply, wow.

No Way Home‘s draw is more than double that of the second trailer for Spider-Man: Far From Home, which hit 135M views at the 24-hour mark. That movie, released in 2019, repped Sony’s largest-grossing title in the studio’s history with $1.131 billion. The pic opened across six days, racking up $185M.

Why all the excitement with this particular Spider-Man movie, the eighth installment from Sony? Because No Way Home is expected to go where no other pic in the webslinger franchise has ever gone, plus it interweaves with the Disney/MCU’s grand multiverse plan they’ve been laying out in the Disney+ series WandaVision and Loki.

From what we’ve seen in the trailer, Tom Holland’s Peter Parker asks Benedict Cumberbatch’s Doctor Strange to cast a spell: Let the entire world forget that Parker is Spider-Man. But the spell goes sideways and Strange’s tampering of space and time leads to bending buildings and flipping trains, mass chaos and the comeback of Alfred Molina’s villain Doc Ock from the Tobey Maguire movie. Speaking of Maguire, it’s been long rumored in the fan-sphere that his Peter Parker is expected to make a cameo in the new movie here.

Globally, the No Way Home teaser trailer generated the largest 24-hour social media conversation volume of all-time with 4.5M mentions. Domestically, the trailer generated 2.91M mentions in 24 hours, ahead of Avengers: Endgame‘s 1.94M mentions. In fact, in just 12 hours, Spider-Man: No Way Home‘s teaser generated 1.96M mentions.

Spider-Man: No Way Home‘s domestic chatter far exceeds that of the second Spider-Man: Far From Home trailer, which generated 1.5M mentions. Internationally, the trailer generated 1.56M mentions in 24 hours, ahead of Avengers: Endgame‘s 1.38M mentions.

Spider-Man: No Way Home opens exclusively in movie theaters on December 17.
