Here's some special news for fans of Spiderman. Rumor has it Tom Holland is returning as 'Spiderman' for a new Trilogy. Although most of them are conjectures, fans seem to be quite thrilled with this news. Holland last starred in 'Spiderman: No Way Home' which was a massive success. Wondering how massive? Exactly 1.916 billion dollars huge! It broke the box office expectations. Holland has proved himself to be a promising star and won prestigious awards like BAFTA Rising Star Award, and more for his skills.

However, last year, 'Spiderman' franchise producer Amy Pascal said Sony was planning "the next three" films with Holland and Feige's Marvel, seemingly confirming the studios reached another pact. It is still not a legitimate confirmation. Regardless, 'Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse' is adding more Spidey variants to its cast all the time, but there’s still no word from Sony on whether Tom Holland could reprise his role as the MCU’s Peter Parker in the multiversal sequel.

In The Hot Mic with Jeff Sneider and John Rocha podcast, Jeff Sneider reported the news that Holland "closed a deal" for the as-yet-untitled 'Spiderman 4,' the follow-up to last year's 'Spiderman: No Way Home.' While unconfirmed, Sneider said Holland's renewed contract includes another Spider-Man trilogy and at least three more appearances. It's unclear whether that means within the MCU or Sony's 'Spiderman' Universe. Holland previously had doubt about 'Spiderman' future after 'No Way Home,' where an unmasked Peter Parker asks 'Doctor Strange' (Benedict Cumberbatch) to make the world forget he's 'Spider-Man' after his secret identity is exposed by Mysterio (Jake Gyllenhaal). 
 
Holland told GQ regarding being Parker's Spidey successor, "Maybe it is time for me to move on. Maybe what's best for Spider-Man is that they do a Miles Morales film." He continues, "I have to take Peter Parker into account as well because he is an important part of my life...[but] if I'm playing 'Spiderman' after I'm 30, I've done something wrong." 
 
In 2015, Sony and Disney signed a five-film agreement allowing 'Spiderman' to appear in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Under the deal, Holland would suit up in 2016's 'Captain America: Civil War' before returning in 2017's 'Spiderman: Homecoming,' with Feige and Marvel Studios producing the solo movie for Sony. 'Spiderman' crossed over into 2018's 'Avengers: Infinity War 'and 2019's 'Avengers: Endgame' for Marvel, but the pact expired with 'Spiderman: Far From Home.'

We suppose time will tell if there is an ounce of truth in these conjectures.
