SPIDER-MAN: NO WAY HOME Star Tom Holland Says The Movie Was Viewed As "The End Of A Franchise"
On the heels of those new stills, Spider-Man: No Way Home star Tom Holland has commented on the movie's place in the MCU, revealing that the threequel was looked at as "the end of franchise".
Tom Holland will reprise the role of Peter Parker for the sixth time in Spider-Man: No Way Home, and the actor has now hinted that we may not see him suited-up as the Webhead again for quite a while following the release of the Sony Pictures sequel. In fact, his comments have led to speculation that he could be done with the role altogether!
While speaking to EW, Holland revealed that No Way Home is viewed not just as the culmination of a trilogy, but the "end of a franchise."
"I think if we were lucky enough to dive into these characters again, you'd be seeing a very different version," he added. "It would no longer be the Homecoming trilogy. We would give it some time and try to build something different and tonally change the films. Whether that happens or not, I don't know. But we were definitely treating [No Way Home] like it was coming to an end, and it felt like it."
Is Holland thinking about hanging up the suit and moving on from Spider-Man for good? We doubt it!
We don't know what his contact situation looks like right now or the current status of the Sony/Marvel Studios deal, but it's hard to imagine he won't reprise this role in some capacity down the line. If and when he does return, many fans will be happy to hear that this take on the character will finally be allowed to grow-up and move on from a high-school setting.

While specific plot details remain under wraps, we do know that Peter will go to Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) and ask him to cast a spell to make the world forget that he's really Spider-Man. This has disastrous consequences, as the likes of Doctor Octopus (Alfred Molina), Electro (Jamie Foxx), and other Multiverse villains are unleashed.
Spider-Man: No Way Home swings into theaters this December.
