Story highlights

The highly-anticipated release of Holland`s third solo film as the legendary superhero, `Spider-Man: No Way Home`, will mark the end of the actor`s contractual obligations to lead standalone films built around the character.

For those who have loved watching Tom Holland play Spiderman, there is some bad news. 'Spider-Man: No Way Home'- the third instalment of the Spidey series- will be Holland's last film playing the superhero according to the contract he has signed. 

Reports though suggest that the actor is already setting his sights on a potential comeback and said that he would return "in a heartbeat" if asked. There is no official news if Marvel will be renewing the contract or not. 

According to reports, the highly-anticipated release of Holland`s third solo film as the legendary superhero, `Spider-Man: No Way Home`, will mark the end of the actor`s contractual obligations to lead standalone films built around the character.

Recently, during an interview with Collider, for his new drama `Cherry`, Holland said, "I`ve always said to them if they want me back I`ll be there in a heartbeat, I`ve loved every minute of being a part of this amazing world. It`s changed my life for the better, I`m so lucky to be here. If they want me back I`ll be there, if they don`t I will walk off into the sunset a very, very happy person because it`s been an amazing journey."

Before leading his first pair of solo Spidey flicks with the 2017`s `Spider-Man: Homecoming` and its 2019 sequel `Spider-Man: Far From Home`, the first time that Holland appeared in the classic comic book role of Peter Parker was with Marvel`s 2016 blockbuster `Captain America: Civil War'. 

Apart from these, he has also appeared in several Avengers titles for Marvel and Disney. 

Though, his solo spin-offs were distributed by Sony under an unprecedented deal between the two studio mammoths, sharing the character rights. A brief rift occurred between the partners that nearly threatened to end Holland`s run as the hero.

The upcoming `No Way Home` is set to pick up after Parker`s identity was exposed in `Far From Home`. 

With series mainstays Zendaya reprising her role as Michelle and Marisa Tomei returning as Aunt May, Benedict Cumberbatch is set to appear as Doctor Strange in the movie. 

Jamie Foxx and Alfred Molina will also be stepping back into their roles from the past Spider-Man franchises as Electro and Doctor Octopus. 

Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers have written the script for the forthcoming Marvel film. Filmmaker Jon Watts has helmed the upcoming movie after directing `Spider-Man Homecoming` (2017) and `Spider-Man: Far From Home` (2019), which earned more than USD 1.1 billion globally, making it the highest-grossing `Spider-Man` movie of all time.
