Not only do we have to be thankful that we’re getting three more Tom Holland Spider-Man movies, but it appears that Amy Pascal’s announcement may also have stopped interviewers asking him about Andrew Garfield for five minutes, and instead they can bombard the current suits incumbent with questions about Spidey’s future.
With Holland swinging into Paris to promote Spider-Man: No Way Home, this has already happened on the French show Quotidien, where the presenter asked him about the breaking news that he was set to appear in the further adventures of Spider-Man, to which the perennially likeable actor responded saying:
“Next question… Listen, all I’ll say is we have some very, very exciting things to be talking about. I don’t know what those things are or what they will transpire to mean. But it looks like it’s an incredibly bright future ahead, and as I’ve said before, Spider-Man will forever live in me.”

It also appears to be news to Holland that the announcement is out there, hence his typically giddy and excited response, although he has become a lot more savvy in keeping the MCU secrets than he used to be, which might explain the laughter.
Let us know what you think of Spidey joining the four-film club alongside Thor, and which strand of the multiverse you’d like to see Holland swing down by heading to our social channels @FlickeringMyth…
