Tom Holland has opened up about the future of Spider-Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe following Disney and Sony’s failure to reach a deal on the new films. Speaking to Entertainment Weekly at Disney’s D23 Expo, the 23-year-old actor addressed the news that the Spider-Man films will no longer be part of the MCU moving forward.
“Basically, we’ve made five great movies,” Holland told EW. “It’s been five amazing years. I’ve had the time of my life. Who knows what the future holds? But all I know is that I’m going to continue playing Spider-Man and having the time of my life. It’s going to be so fun, however we choose to do it. The future for Spider-Man will be different, but it will be equally as awesome and amazing, and we’ll find new ways to make it even cooler.”
Later he appeared on a D23 panel to promote his new Disney-Pixar animated movie Onward, saying to the crowd, “It’s been a crazy week, but I want you to know I am grateful from the bottom of my heart and I love you.”
