The friendly neighborhood Spider-Man will be everywhere in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Actor Tom Holland revealed in a recent interview that he is signed on to play his teenaged web-slinger for a total of six movies, which include cameos, but mainly count three Spider-Man movies and three separate “solo movies.”
When asked how many movies he’s attached to for Marvel, he explains the studio gave him options that “could be exercised whenever,” like “a cameo in Avengers.” Admitting he’s not clear on the specifics, he does confirm three Spider-Man movies “and three solo movies contracted.”
Holland’s awkward phrasing sort of complicates his slate a tad. By “solo movies,” does he mean three solo Marvel flicks like Black Panther and Captain Marvel? Does that mean he’s not available for principal roles in Avengers: Infinity War? It’d be disappointing if Spidey were left out of the battle against Thanos.
But all that is known for sure is that the Marvel Cinematic Universe will be seeing a lot of Spidey, and that the iconic hero has three whole movies to himself. Place bets: Who thinks Carnage will show up?
Spider-Man: Homecoming, which will be released July 7, 2017, takes place after Captain America: Civil War and will be the debut solo Spider-Man movie in the expansive Marvel Cinematic Universe.
