Tom Holland made his big debut as Spider-Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Captain America: Civil War (2016). Since then, he has been actively reprising his role and even got to lead three films with the third one, Spider-Man: No Way Home becoming a major success.
Given that Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios have been laying the groundwork for the Spider-Man franchise, it is for sure that the fourth sequel is going to happen. While the actor is set to reprise his role in the MCU, he is being quite cautious about his future in the franchise.
In an interview with Yahoo Entertainment (via Kevin Polowy,) he shared his thoughts on returning to his role as a friendly neighborhood spidey.
“If we can’t find a way to compete with the third one, he’ll swing off into the sunset.”

Will Tom Holland be Up for Another Spider-Man Film?
While his return remains an intriguing question for the fans, he addressed reprising his MCU role in an interview with ET. Adding to what it would take for him to continue being a web-slinger, he stated,
“I think as long as we can do justice to Peter Parker. As long as we can keep elevating and making the films better and making them mean more, then I’ll be there.”
“I’d be stupid to say that I wouldn’t be the luckiest kid alive if I got to do it again, there’s stuff going on, but we’ll have to just wait and see what happens.”
Though his web-slinger journey is yet to finish, he announced a break from acting after producing and starring in The Crowded Room. The show touched him on several levels which was “hard” for him.
The Crowded Room is available on Apple+ meanwhile Spider–Man: No Way Home is now streaming on Starz.
