Tom Holland's Spider-Man Contract Is Done After No Way Home, But He Wants To Come Back
No Way Home is Holland's final Spider-Man movie under his current contract, but he says he'd come back "in a heartbeat" if asked.
This year's Spider-Man: No Way Home is the final Spider-Man film in Tom Holland's contract. He revealed this in a new interview with Collider, in which he also made it clear that he hopes to get a new deal and appear as the web-slinger in more movies down the road.
"[Spider-Man 3] would be my last one [under contract] so I've always said to them if they want me back I'll be there in a heartbeat," he said. "I've loved every minute of being a part of this amazing world. It's changed my life for the better, I'm so lucky to be here. If they want me back I'll be there, if they don't I will walk off into the sunset a very, very happy person because it's been an amazing journey."
Fans may recall that Holland's Spider-Man was briefly out of the MCU as Spider-Man rights-owner Sony had a fight with Marvel. The two companies eventually came to terms, and Holland said he believes there won't be additional contractural drama in the future if there are more Spider-Man movies.
"The way I understand it is that agreement between the two studios has already happened," he said of Sony and Marvel. "I don't think that they're going to run into the same troubles that they did ... I think the two studios have worked that out, and I don't think that that will be a problem in the future. That said, I’m just the actor and I was a part of a few phone calls during that process, but I think they love working with each other, I think they found a way in which it can be beneficial for both studios, and I'm just kind of like a kid in the middle of it, between two parents during an argument (laughs)."
Under the terms of the new deal, Disney/Marvel paid 25% to co-finance No Way Way Home to obtain a quarter of the equity stake. What this means is that Sony ends up the big winner, taking home 75% of the box office for No Way Home. The deal also mentioned that Spider-Man would appear in one further Disney/Marvel movie, but it remains to be seen what that would be.
No Way Home is believed to be the final entry in the new Spider-Man trilogy that kicked off in 2017. The future of the Spider-Man series is unknown at this point.
No Way Home is scheduled to debut in theaters this December. Some of the first No Way Home images have been released.
