“Spider-Man: Homecoming” isn’t even out yet, but it appears the people behind the film are already planning for the future of the movie franchise. Spider-Man actor Tom Holland was at the premiere of “The Lost City of Z” and he shared some information about the second “Spider-Man” film.
“My next project, I can’t tell you about, but we’ve just finished ‘Spider-Man’ and we’re talking about the second one and who the villain is going to be and where we’re going,” he told Women’s Wear Daily.
It looks like a sequel is already underway. That’s not a surprise, really. As Newsarama noted, Marvel Studios usually plans ahead and signs their actors to multi-picture deals. The Mary Sue also pointed out that hype around the upcoming film grew after Spider-Man’s appearance in “Captain America: Civil War.” Marvel and Sony clearly want to make the most of Spider-Man’s popularity right now, so a sequel makes sense.
Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige had hinted that the new “Spider-Man” film series would show Peter Parker getting through high school, so Spider-Man might still be trying his best to balance school and superhero work when the sequel comes out.
Meanwhile, Holland told Variety he wasn’t sure if his character was going to appear in future “Avengers” films. “It’s all up in the air. I believe some sort of deal is in the mix, but I’m unclear as to what that deal is.”
In the interview, Holland said the suit he had to wear was really uncomfortable, but he kept on reminding himself how lucky he was to get the role. He also revealed that he did many of his own stunts, however, there were some stunts that he legally couldn’t do. And that’s when the stunt doubles come in.
“Whenever there was a stunt that I didn’t necessarily feel comfortable about, they would step in and show my how to do it, and coach me through the process.”
“Spider-Man: Homecoming” will hit the theaters on July 7, 2017.
