Tom Holland has responded to rumours of a new ‘Spider-Man’ trilogy, saying that the franchise has an “incredibly bright future”.

‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’, the last film in the current trilogy, is set to come to cinemas next month (December 17), and was originally assumed to be the last ‘Spider-Man’ film.

However, after producer Amy Pascal hinted that more movies might be on the way, Holland was asked about the future of ‘Spider-Man’ in a new interview.

Appearing on French TV show Quotidien, Holland said: “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 be, but it looks like it’s an incredibly bright future ahead,” he added. “And, as I’ve said before, Spider-Man will forever live in me.”

Earlier this month a new trailer for the anticipated third instalment to the franchise was released, teasing the return of Alfred Molina’s Doctor Octopus, Willem Defoe’s Green Goblin and Jamie Foxx as Electro.

There has been intense speculation that other Spider-Man characters from the series would re-appear in this film – specifically Andrew Garfield and Toby Maguire.

Despite both saying they wouldn’t be returning, there are still rumours and fan theories that they will return.

Tom Holland has recently called ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ “dark” and “brutal”, saying it is “not fun” to watch.

“What people will be really surprised about is that it’s not fun, this film,” Holland told Total Film. “It’s dark and it’s sad, and it’s going to be really affecting.”

He added: “You’re going to see characters that you love go through things that you would never wish for them to go through. And I was just really excited to kind of lean into that side of Peter Parker.”

‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ will be released in cinemas on December 17.
