Tom Holland isn't sure he'll be in Spider-Man spinoffs

It would definitely be weird to see a movie about Venom without Spider-Man, but that might be what's up.

Sony recently announced that it would release a film centered on Spidey's classic comic book enemy, along with another movie about Silver Sable and Black Cat. Each of the characters have ties to Spider-Man, but actor Tom Holland recently told Variety that he isn't on board with either spinoff yet. When asked if he would appear as Peter Parker in those movies, he said: "I have no idea. I haven't read a script. I haven't seen any sort of concept art, so that would be something I would decide on when I see material."

Venom is already slated for release in October 2018, so you'd think Holland would need to know pretty soon if Spidey is in the plan. Of course, if Spider-Man only makes a brief appearance, that would probably change things a little.

But recent reports indicate that both films will be the beginning of Sony's own version of a Marvel Cinematic Universe. Sony owns the rights to Spider-Man while Disney has The Avengers, but the two studios worked out arrangements to let Holland introduce the character in Captain America: Civil War, and for Robert Downey Jr. to show up as Tony Stark in Spider-Man: Homecoming.

You would think that Sony would want to make Spidey the centerpiece of its new universe, but it's possible that the spinoff films would only be tangentially related to the bigger picture–sort of the way Ant-Man and Guardians of the Galaxy exist mostly separate from the MCU.

We'll surely hear more as details are revealed about the upcoming films. In the meantime, take a look at the new trailer for Spider-Man: Homecoming
