Tom Holland’s Spider-Man Needs a True Solo Film

Marvel Studios and Sony's development of the next live-action Spider-Man feature has been unusually quiet following the tremendous success of No Way Home, which grossed over $2 billion.

 Part of this could have been related to Tom Holland's contract discussions to continue as the wall-crawler. The WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes also slowed development, but now that they're finished, it's time to speculate on what comes next for Tom Holland's Spider-Man.

Holland's next Spider-Man film will be the fourth installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) franchise and his eighth as the character.
