Despite being absent from the Marvel Phase 5 and 6 lineups, Marvel boss Kevin Feige has confirmed that a fourth Spider-Man movie starring Tom Holland as the titular web-slinger is currently being written.

"All I will say is that we have the story," Feige told Entertainment Weekly (opens in new tab). "We have big ideas for that, and our writers are just putting pen to paper now."

Spider-Man: No Way Home, which saw the return of Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield's iterations of Peter Parker, grossed over $1.9 billion at the global box office.

Though no further Spider-Man movies were announced by Marvel last year during the unveiling of the Marvel Phase 5 and Marvel Phase 6 slates, Sony movies chairman Tom Rothman confirmed that a movie would no doubt be on its way.

"You bet," Rothman replied to The Hollywood Reporter (opens in new tab) when asked about another Spider-Man movie. "When you can expect it, I don't know. Serve no wine before its time."

In the meantime, several different Spider-Man spinoffs are on the way including a live-action adaptation of Spider-Man Noir, the full-length animated feature Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, and Madame Web, starring Dakota Johnson and Sydney Sweeney – all produced by Sony as part of its own Spider-Man universe. Across the Spider-Verse is set to hit theaters on June 2, 2023, with a third sequel Spider-Man: Beyond the Spider-Verse already set for a March 2024 release.

Next up on Marvel's release slate is Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, which is set to hit theaters on February 17. For more, check out our guide to all the upcoming Marvel movies and Disney Plus TV shows for everything else the MCU has in store.
