At the end of Spider-Man: No Way Home, Tom Holland’s Peter Parker moves into the MCU version of the crappy apartment from Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man movies before swinging off for some more adventures in a new (yet traditional) crime-fighting costume. The implication, presumably, was that after a movie with enormous multiversal stakes (and a movie all about him on vacation in Europe), Spider-Man was going to do some more classic Spider-Man things—you know, like webbing up bank robbers, fighting the Rhino, and feuding with an old newspaperman—even if we never actually saw them happen in a movie.

But hey, maybe now we will. In an appearance with the Critics Choice Association (via Collider), Holland recently teased that “we” have been “actively engaging in conversations” about what a fourth Spider-Man movie would “look like.” He wouldn’t go so far as to say that they’re working on turning his series into a quadrilogy, but they’re at least talking about doing it. He also added, to keep everyone’s expectations in check, “whether or not we can find a way to do justice to the character is another thing.”


He explained his reluctance to leap into another one by saying that he’s “very protective” of Spider-Man, saying that he’s “very, very lucky that we were able to work on a franchise that got better with each movie” (he must be talking about something else, because Homecoming is the best one). He says he won’t make another “for the sake of making another one,” but it would have to be “worth the while of the character.”

Over the summer, Holland said that there had been meetings about doing another movie, but with the writer’s strike going on at the time, those meetings had been put on hold. Based on his comments now, it sounds like those talks have either resumed or were serious enough that he considers them still ongoing.
