Since Spider-Man: No Coming Home, the world is wondering about the future of Spider-Man inside and outside the MCU. Marvel/Disney’s Spider-Man deal with Sony almost came to fruition with the previous release. And given the gigantic success of No coming home at the box office, it was still likely that a deal for a new Spidey trilogy within the MCU would be inked very soon. In fact, new rumors suggest things are in play right now, but Sony might be holding Marvel back on one side.
The Spidey Affair
When Marvel brought back Spider-Man after Sony and Disney fell out in 2019, Spider-Man was supposed to appear in No Way Home and another unnamed MCU project. That project still hasn’t happened, but the rumor mill has started posting updates to his new contract. The Cosmic Circus’ Lizzie’s Hill was the first to tease a new contract with her tweet.

She also cited that she “[hopes] Tom Holland is having a great day!

Referring to this one, Insider @Culture_Spider also tweeted that Lizzie “was the first to allude to it.”
Then he further clarified things with this:
A new deal with Tom Holland is coming

So, it’s safe to believe that something has happened regarding Tom Holland’s future as Spider-Man, and we could expect a Spider-Man 4 announcement very soon. With these rumors circulating, many are suggesting that Holland will now appear in 6 more MCU projects which include 3 new Spider-Man movies, two Avengers movies and an appearance in Daredevil: Born Again on Disney+. But all this may not be one hundred percent true.

The Disney+ dilemma
It would make a lot of sense for Spidey to appear in the next Daredevil series. A team was formed No coming home, and since there are 18 episodes to cover, Spidey could definitely appear in a few of them. Many wish that were true! But Alex Perez from The Cosmic Circus has raised doubts about the possibility of a Disney+ appearance for Spider-Man as he stated that “Holland’s contract does not include Disney+ appearances.”
Holland’s contract does not include Disney+ appearances, I’m told. 😕
So if a “deal” includes an appearance on a Disney+ show, chances are it’s not real. https://t.co/CklKT8IybY

Well, an appearance in Daredevil: Born Again was always going to be uncertain because of the Spider rights issue. It would be a huge win if Marvel pulls it off. But we should expect the other 5 projects to come true for sure. In fact, due to Holland’s age and popularity, and Spider-Man’s age as a character, we might even get two more Spidey trilogies. But all that is in the very distant future.

For now, it would be interesting to see what unnamed MCU project Spider-Man would appear in next. And, a 2025 release date for Spider-Man 4 might be the safest bet unless Sony decides to fast-track the sequel to 2024 (too late for that though!).
