It will be distributed by Sony Pictures Releasing and co-produced by Columbia and Marvel. The 27th installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the follow-up to 2017’s Spider-Man: Homecoming and 2019’s Spider-Man: Far From Home MCU.

Man Exit as Marvel Contract Expires
When speaking to the media, 25-year-old Holland has the demeanor of a seasoned veteran who’s ready to take his place in the fading light of day.
So it’s possible that, six years after being plucked from the shadows to play Spider-Man in 2015, the British actor is still as excited as ever about being a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe as the rest of us are about being a part of it.
In an interview with GQ, Holland, who is set to make a record-breaking sixth appearance as Spider-Man on the big screen, gives the strongest hint yet that he may be leaving the role.
“Maybe it’s time for me to leave,” Holland muses. “Perhaps a Spider-Man film starring Miles Morales would be best for the character.
“If I’m still playing Spider-Man at 30, I’ve done something wrong,” he continues, “because he’s an important part of my life.”
Having Miles Morales as the new Spider-Man in the film franchise would be a powerful plot assumption, thanks to Holland’s suggestion. Even in the Ultimate Universe, Morales was introduced in 2011 as a radioactive-spider-bit replacement for Parker, who had died there.
Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, a 2018 animated feature starring Shameik Moore as the titular character, is a prime example of how the character would eventually become a popular staple, serving as the protagonist voiced by Shameik Moore caught up in multiverse chaos.
Holland’s reference to Miles Morales in relation to his own possible exit from the show lends itself to a lot of interpretation.
No Way Home’s universe-reaching implications have made it more feasible than ever before.
He was born on June 1, 1996, to comedian and author Dominic Holland and photographer Nicola née Frost in Kingston upon the Thames, southwest London.
Three younger brothers are in his family. Tipperary, Ireland, is where his maternal grandmother came from. In Kingston upon Thames, Holland can walk to the homes of his parents and younger siblings.
As his parents both work in creative fields, he is often inspired by them; he regards his father as a role model who has unofficially served as his manager due to his experience in the industry.
Donhead, a Catholic preparatory school in Wimbledon, London, educated Holland. He was diagnosed with dyslexia when he was seven years old. His parents enrolled him and his brothers in a private school so that he could receive the individualized attention he craved.
Despite Holland’s enthusiasm for the new school, it was becoming increasingly difficult for his family to keep up with the rising costs.
Holland went to a Jesuit high school, Wimbledon College, before transferring to the BRIT School in Croydon, where he studied performing arts and technology.
When Holland was a kid, he had a slew of career options on the table. A fan of Janet Jackson’s music, he would often dance while listening to her songs as an infant.
Because of this, his mother signed him up for a dancing class advertised in the private school Holland was visiting.
In his early twenties, Holland briefly attended a carpentry school in Cardiff, Wales. Because he enjoys being around children, he considered going into education as a career path.
