Tom Holland remains apprehensive about returning as Peter Parker / Spider-Man for Marvel.
The English actor first appeared as the webslinger in Captain America: Civil War and from there he would make numerous appearances in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, including a Spider-Man trilogy - Homecoming, Far from Home and No Way Home.
At the conclusion of the third movie, No Way Home, the entire universe has forgotten about the existence of Parker, including his girlfriend MJ. It was believed that the film completed the narrative cycle of Holland's version of Spider-Man, but speculation surrounding a fourth entry in the series has been rampant.
Several figures at Sony and Marvel have confirmed it is happening, though Holland himself has reservations.
"It was myself, Amy , Kevin Feige, Rachel , sometimes other executives from Marvel will sit in," he told The Hollywood Reporter with regards to meetings that have already taken place.
"It's a collaborative process. The first few meetings were about: 'Why would we do this again?' And I think we found the reason why. I'm really, really happy with where we're at in terms of the creative.
"But I'm also a little apprehensive about it. There's a bit of a stigma about the fourth one in all franchises. I feel like we hit a home run with our first franchise and there's a part of me that wants to walk away with my head held high and pass the baton to the next lucky kid that gets to bring this character to life."
What needs to happen for Holland to return?
Holland previously suggested that he will only return if the collaborators can better what came before, while giving "justice" to the character of Peter Parker.
"I think as long as we can do justice to Peter Parker," he told Entertainment Tonight.
"As long as we can keep elevating and making the films better and making them mean more, then I'll be there.
"I'd be stupid to say that I wouldn't be the luckiest kid alive if I got to do it again, there's stuff going on, but we'll have to just wait and see what happens."
