Spider-Man: No Way Home proved to be one of the best Spider-Man entries in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) and was loved by fans as they witnessed the three different friendly-neighborhood masked crusaders from different franchises coming together to stop an interdimensional invasion.

But after the end of the movie, the fans were still left with a hulk-sized question.

Will there be a Spider-Man 4?


Sony and Marvel Studios have been rumored to be working on a Spider-Man 4, but nothing foundationally strong has been revealed as of yet.

What Does The Cast Say?

Speaking with Collider, Spider-Man: No Way Home star Jacob Batalon expressed his thoughts on looking forward to appearing in a potential fourth MCU Spider-Man movie.

“I feel like actors are the last people to know. I think that people assume that actors are always hiding secrets. I promise you, we don’t know anything. But again, if it’s the right place, at the right time, with the right group of people that we’ve been with, I would say, why not? But other than that, whatever happens, happens. Really, those decisions are up to the big bosses, the people who sign the checks. We’re open to the idea, but we’re not hoping for it.” 

These were Batalon’s words when asked about working on the potential 4th movie.


This led to speculations as he also added that the rest of his co-stars aren’t thrilled to return for a 4th movie. So it’s a speculation that Tom Holland might be bored of playing Spider-Man now.

This possibility, paired with the events from No Way Home can spark a truly exciting new set of events to unfold, and that too, without Tom Holland’s Peter Parker!

What does the future hold for Spider-Man?

As was stated earlier, the prospect of the 4th movie isn’t set in stone, and it doesn’t seem like the old crew is thrilled about it either. But, this can also lead to a completely new possibility, as we now have the potential to get  Miles Morales’ Ultimate Spider-Man!

Tom Holland supposedly has almost said goodbye to reprising his role in any future Spider-Man films, a prospect for a whole new cast and crew seems likely the way to go. Seeing how Spider-Man is one of the most iconic symbols in comics and in the world of superheroes, there still lies a potential and an incentive for Marvel Studios and Sony to expand the universe of spidey goodness.

Miles Morales can be the next Spider-Man?

Adding fuel to this news, social media is currently going crazy as rumors of Jaden Smith playing Miles Morales in a potential live-action movie have been making their rounds. Moreover, Jaden Smith himself fanned the flames with a cryptic post on Twitter earlier this year, and the fans are going wild!

With this tweet going around, putting fans in a frenzy, it may likely make No Way Home the last movie with Tom Holland as Spider-Man, but the Spider-Man franchise looks like it’s just going to get better.

Spider-Man: No Way Home is now streaming on Netflix.
