The Writers Guild of America’s strike has shaken up the world of Hollywood and brought everything to a complete pause. Movies, series, shows – basically everything, at least the ones that haven’t been fully written with the drafts submitted.
Spider-man’s producer Amy Pascal confirmed in an interview that the upcoming Spider-man 4 movie featuring Tom Holland and Zendaya is in the works but has been put on hold because of the strike. So, it might be a while before we actually see the movie. The strike is a great thing, writers deserve to be paid properly. Writers put in a lot of work for these movies we see in and out of cinemas every month. We can see now (even though everybody knows) that without writers there are no movies. They deserve to be paid properly, and it’s great that movies and shows across Hollywood are being supportive.
Hopefully, the writers are properly settled and the strike ends soon, and we can get back to producing great content again. It might be 2025 or 2026 till we see the movie. Although that totally depends on when the strike ends. So, it could even be longer than 2 years till we see Tom Holland’s Spider-Man 4 in theatres.
Tom also recently shared that he hopes to keep playing our friendly neighborhood Spider-man;
“as long as we can do justice to Peter Parker. As long as we can keep elevating and making the films better and making them mean more.”
Only after his fourth Spider-man movie can we truly know if he’ll still be Spidey for future MCU projects. He’s done a great job so far, and I hope he does continue to play Spider-man.
