The Background of Spider-Man Reboot
The Spider-Man franchise has been one of the most lucrative and popular superhero movie series in recent history. The reboot of the Spider-Man franchise in 2017 with Tom Holland as the lead has been a massive success, with two sequels, Spider-Man: Homecoming and Spider-Man: Far From Home, grossing over $2 billion worldwide.
The Dispute between Disney and Sony
However, in 2019, a dispute between Disney, the parent company of Marvel Studios, and Sony, the studio that owns the rights to Spider-Man, threatened to end Tom Holland’s run as Spider-Man. The dispute arose when Disney demanded a larger share of the profits from Spider-Man movies, which Sony rejected.

Tom Holland’s Contract
Despite the dispute between Disney and Sony, Tom Holland has signed a contract to appear in at least two more Spider-Man movies. The contract was signed in 2019, shortly before the dispute between Disney and Sony began.
The Upcoming Spider-Man Movie
The next Spider-Man movie, which is currently untitled, is scheduled for release in 2023. It will be the third solo Spider-Man movie for Tom Holland and is expected to continue the story from the previous two movies.
The Possibility of Replacing Tom Holland
While Tom Holland is contracted to appear in at least two more Spider-Man movies, there is always the possibility that the studio could choose to replace him. However, given the success of the franchise with Holland as the lead and the popularity of his portrayal of Spider-Man, it seems unlikely that Sony would choose to replace him.
