‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’: Tom Holland Announces He Wants to Make ‘Spider-Man’ Films ‘Again and Again and Again’
Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures have yet to formally announce more Spider-Man films starring Tom Holland in the works. However, the actor and producers have made it clear that they want to make more movies after Spider-Man: No Way Home. So most fans believe that it’s only a matter of time before it becomes official.
Tom Holland completed Peter Parker’s origin story in ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’
If Spider-Man: No Way Home truly is Tom Holland’s last appearance as Peter Parker in a solo film, then it stands as a satisfying end. By the end of the movie, his character arc came full circle as the audience realized that the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe Spider-Man trilogy acted as Peter’s origin story.
Peter and Doctor Strange accidentally tear open the multiverse while trying to make the world forget Peter is Spider-Man in Spider-Man: No Way Home. And by the end of the film, Peter realizes that the only way to rectify the situation is to carry out the original spell. So, he says his goodbyes to Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire‘s Peter Parkers and MJ and Ned. And Doctor Strange makes everyone forget who Peter is.
Later, Peter goes to MJ and Ned to make them remember him. But he decides not to at the last minute because he doesn’t want to endanger their lives. So Peter rents a rundown apartment, dons a new Spidey suit, and becomes a friendly neighborhood Spider-Man, instead of an Avenger who constantly saves the world.
Of course, the ending of Spider-Man: No Way Home opens the door to a world of possibilities for Tom Holland as Peter Parker. However, it also provided closure for many of its characters.
The actor wants to make more ‘Spider-Man’ films
Rotten Tomatoes awarded Spider-Man: No Way Home with three Golden Tomato accolades, and Tom Holland appeared in a video on their Twitter page to accept the awards.
“Guys, Spider-Man: No Way Home has received three Golden Tomatoes,” the actor said. “So I just wanted to say a massive thank you on behalf of everyone from Sony and Marvel, the critics, the fans who have shown so much love and respect and support for our movies. It means the world, and hopefully, we can do it again and again and again. But thank you, thank you, thank you. And we’ll see you soon.”
It’s clear that Holland would say yes to making more Spider-Man movies with Marvel and Sony. So, hopefully, the studios will announce their continued collaboration soon because everyone wants to see it happen.
Tom Holland is pushing to get ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ nominated at the Oscars
While receiving awards from Rotten Tomatoes is impressive, Tom Holland and the producers of Spider-Man: No Way Home want to see the MCU movie nominated for an Oscar.
While speaking with The Hollywood Reporter, Holland campaigned for the Academy to nominate his film. He said, “I’ve made Marvel movies, and I’ve also made movies that have been in the conversation in the world of the Oscars, and the only difference, really, is one is much more expensive than the other.”
“But the way I break down the character, the way the director etches out the arc of the story and characters — it’s all the same, just done on a different scale. So, I do think they’re real art. When you’re making these films, you know that, good or bad, millions of people will see them. Whereas when you’re making a small indie film, if it’s not very good, no one will watch it. So it comes with different levels of pressure.”
Holland continued, “I mean, you can also ask Benedict Cumberbatch or Robert Downey Jr. or Scarlett Johansson — people who have made the kinds of movies that are ‘Oscar-worthy’ and also made superhero movies — and they will tell you that they’re the same, just on a different scale. And there’s less Spandex in ‘Oscar movies.'”
Spider-Man: No Way Home, starring Tom Holland, is currently playing in theaters.
