Marvel‘s Kevin Feige confirmed to the New York Times that there will be at least one more Spider-Man film after Spider-Man: No Way Home.
“Amy [Pascal] and I and Disney and Sony are talking about — yes, we’re actively beginning to develop where the story heads next, which I only say outright because I don’t want fans to go through any separation trauma like what happened after Far From Home,” Feige said while referring to the 2019 deal between Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures that fell through after the release of Spider-Man: Far From Home, and had left the future of the franchise on a cliff-hanger.
No Way Home is the third film in the Spider-Man: Homecoming series which features actors Tom Holland, Zendaya and Jacob Batalon, who reprise their roles as Peter Parker, Michelle Jones or MJ, and Ned Leeds, respectively.
It follows Peter Parker alias Spider-Man as he fights multiple villains from earlier Spider-Man films who return after Doctor Strange unleashes the multiverse to help Parker.
Amy Pascal who is also a producer on the film from Sony said, “At the end of the movie we just made, you see Spider-Man make a momentous decision, one that you’ve never seen him make before. It’s a sacrifice. And that gives us a lot to work with for the next film.”
While it is unclear as to how many films are queued, Pascal had earlier told Fandango that the future is being considered as a batch of another three films.
Spider-Man: No Way Home released in India, on December 16 and worldwide on December 17. It managed to earn a whopping Rs. 33 crore (nett) on its first day and proved to be a big-time crowd-puller, especially in multiplexes.
In only three days since its release, the film collected over $165 million worldwide.
The film also featured Benedict Cumberbatch who essaed Doctor Strange in the MCU. He had taken over the role of Parker’s mentor, previously occupied by Tony Stark aka Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr) in Spider-Man: Homecoming, and then by Samuel L Jackson’s Nick Fury in Spider-Man: Far From Home after the death of Iron Man in Avengers: Endgame.
