When you sign up for a key role in a Marvel film, you’re always signing on for a number of sequels with the contracts varying from actor to actor.
One of the more recent people to join the MCU is actor Tom Holland who plays the new Peter Parker/Spider-Man. He first appeared in “Captain America: Civil War” and has already shot his first solo film with July’s “Spider-Man: Homecoming”.
So how many more times can we expect to see him in the role? At least four more from the sounds of it. Speaking with THR, Holland confirms his deal is for three “Spider-Man” solo films and three appearances in other Marvel Cinematic films. So far he’s done of each:
“They give you options and those could be exercised whenever. Like a cameo in Avengers. I’m unclear as to which movies though. I do know I have three Spider-Man [appearances in other] movies and three solo movies contracted. But if you have another movie, Marvel is so good at working around it. They’re very respectful of your life, really. They understand that you have to work on other movies, and they try and fix it up so you can work around each other.”
It’s assumed Holland will appear in “Avengers: Infinity War” which begins production shortly, but Marvel has yet to confirm his involvement. Holland has also talked about what his character will bring to the team-up films:
“You’ve seen the billionaire, the scientist, the soldier. Now it’s time to see the kid, and every decision we make on set is based off how would a kid react in this situation, so every fight scene we have is designed in a way that’s almost child-friendly, so he never actually punches anyone. It’s all done kind of by accident. I think the biggest difference is his youth and innocence.”
“Spider-Man: Homecoming” opens in cinemas on July 7th 2017.
