Oh, and there will be dancing

Spider-Man: Homecoming - Spider-Man squatting Marvel Studios

Tom Holland will make his feature-length debut as Peter Parker in next year’s Spider-Man: Homecoming.

Although Holland already debuted the character in Captain America: Civil War, it’ll be the first stand-alone Spider-Man movie apart of the Marvel Cinematic Universe since it launched. In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Holland has confirmed that he’ll play the web-slinging hero at least two more times following Homecoming in his own stand-alone movies. On top of that, he’ll also have a role in at least two more Marvel films, although he didn’t say what those were.

“They give you options, and those could be exercised whenever,” Holland said. “Like a cameo in Avengers. I'm unclear as to which movies, though. I do know I have three Spider-Man movies and three solo movies contracted.”

When Holland was asked about whether or not Spider-Man would be in Avengers: Infinity War, the third Avengers movie in the franchise, the actor said it was all up in the air. Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige has spoken at length about how he’d like to incorporate more of Spider-Man into the MCU whenever possible, so it doesn’t seem like too far of a stretch. Not to mention that as seen in Civil War, Spider-Man already knows Tony Stark and the rest of the crew.

Holland also told The Hollywood Reporter that fans should expect a goofier Peter Parker than Andrew Garfield’s version of the character in The Amazing Spider-Man films. Holland added that, despite complaints about Tobey Maguire’s dancing Peter Parker in Spider-Man 3, the new Spidey would also bust a few moves.

“There is a moment where he dances, and it's so funny,” Holland said. “It's not good dancing.”
