AMY PASCAL SPEAKS ABOUT TOM HOLLAND’S ‘SPIDER-MAN’
Speaking about Spider-Man : No Way Home, Amy Pascal told Fandango:
“This is not the last movie that we are going to make with Marvel – [this is not] the last Spider-Man movie. We are getting ready to make the next Spider-Man movie with Tom Holland and Marvel, it just isn’t part of … we’re thinking of this as three films, and now we’re going to go onto the next three. This is not the last of our Marvel Cinematic Universe movies.”
SONY’S RELATIONSHIP WITH ‘SPIDER-MAN’
Amy also discussed Sony’s relationship with Marvel in relation to the Spider-Man character.
“Yes, Marvel and Sony are going to keep going together as partners,” she said.

TOM HOLLAND’S THOUGHTS ON ‘SPIDER-MAN’ CHARACTER
By contrast, Holland previously suggested that he was thinking of walking away from the character.
“Maybe it is time for me to move on. Maybe what’s best for Spider-Man is that they do a Miles Morales film. I have to take Peter Parker into account as well because he is an important part of my life,” he explained.
Holland also admitted he doesn’t see himself playing the character in five years’ time.
“If I’m playing Spider-Man after I’m 30, I’ve done something wrong.”
On the other hand, Pascal has always been keen to keep working with Holland.
“I’ve talked to him about doing, like, 100 more. I’m never going to make Spider-Man movies without him. Are you kidding me?” she shared.
