Tom Holland’s upcoming Spider-Man trilogy will set a new record for the MCU

After Spider-Man: No Way Home, Tom Holland is apparently set to return for a new MCU Spider-Man trilogy, and his web-slinging franchise will establish a new MCU record.

Tom Holland’s MCU future has long been a source of conjecture and worry, since Sony and Marvel’s Spider-Man contract fell through in 2019, only to be revived in order to bring him back for one more solo film.

Beyond that, it’s been unclear if Holland would stay in the MCU or be transferred to Sony’s Spider-Man Universe, despite the fact that given his popularity in the role, it was assumed that Marvel and Sony would find a way to make it work once more.

It looks that this is the case. Holland may have been coy and abnormally secretive about his future plans, but producer Amy Pascal confirmed in an interview that there will be Spider-Man 4, 5, and 6 in the Marvel Cinematic Universe following No Way Home, which wraps up the current trilogy that began with Spider-Man: Homecoming in 2017.

While it is unclear when the new Spider-Man films will be released, and whether Sony and Marvel will continue to release one every two years, Holland’s position in the MCU should be secure in the near and medium-term.

Holland’s Peter Parker could set a new MCU record by appearing in three new Spider-Man films, giving him the most solo movies in any one franchise. With Spider-Man 4, 5, and 6 reportedly in the works, the Spider-Man films would surpass those of the other MCU solo characters. Iron Man, Captain America, and Thor each have three, with Odinson set to become the first MCU character to get four solo films with the release of Thor: Love and Thunder in 2022 (though Captain America 4 is also in the works at Marvel, though it will focus on Anthony Mackie’s Sam Wilson rather than Chris Evans’ Steve Rogers). It’s uncertain whether those characters would get the fifth episode, but even if they do, Spider-six Man’s films would beat out both of them for the MCU record.

Beyond solo films, the occurrence of Spider-Man 4, 5, and 6 would also push past the Avengers, which presently has four films (although The Avengers 5 at some point, in some form, seems inevitable). Not only would Holland be the first to get a Spider-Man 4 after Sam Raimi’s plans fell through, but he’d also have more solo Spider-Man movies than Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield combined (excluding their potential appearance in Spider-Man: No Way Home, of course).
