SPIDER-MAN 4: NEW HOME – TRAILER | Tom Holland, Tobey Maguire | Marvel Studios & Sony Pictures (HD) The report comes courtesy of a tweet by the Cosmic Circus’ Alex Perez. In the tweet, Perez said that sources close to the as-yet-untitled fourth Spider-Man installment have confirmed that pre-production on the movie recently ramped up. These same sources also allege that there are still some behind-the-scenes issues being ironed out by Marvel Studios and Sony, the specifics of which remain unclear. Perez closed by suggesting that an announcement from Sony regarding Spider-Man 4 “could be imminent,” depending on whether the studio is ready in time for December’s Comic Con Experience event. Neither Marvel Studios nor Sony have publicly commented on Spider-Man 4’s status, which means this report should be taken with a grain of salt for now.
That said, the buzz surrounding Spider-Man 4’s pre-production progress tracks with recent rumblings that star Tom Holland has closed a deal to appear in the film. Holland is said to be locked in to reprise the Peter Parker/Spider-Man role for at least one more movie, however, it’s unclear if his contract extends to any further sequels. It’s equally uncertain whether the English actor is onboard to play the wall-crawler in other projects set in the wider MCU, although his deal supposedly doesn’t extend to any of Marvel Studios’ Disney+ shows. Marvel Studios and Sony remain tight-lipped regarding whether Holland is officially returning for Spider-Man 4, as does the star himself.
