Tom Holland has revealed that he'd only revive his MCU character of Spider-Man under one very specific condition.

Over the course of five years and four movies, Holland has well and truly made himself known as our friendly neighborhood Spider-Man.

He first swooped on to the scene in Marvel's Captain America: Civil War before starring in three of his own movies, ending with Spider-Man: No Way Home in 2021.

But while Holland's first few appearances as Spider-Man fell close together, we're now two years on from No Way Home, and there's still no word on whether fans will get a sequel.

While Holland has admitted that a new film has been discussed, he made clear he wouldn't come back just for the sake of it.

Speaking during a press conference with the Critics Choice Association, Holland said: "All I can say is that we have been actively engaging in conversations about what it could potentially look like for a fourth rendition of my character.

"Whether or not we can find a way to do justice to the character is another thing."

The actor went on to explain that he feels 'very protective over Spider-Man', adding: "I feel very, very lucky that we were able to work on a franchise that got better with each movie, that got more successful with each movie, which I think is really rare, and I want to protect his legacy. So, I won’t make another one for the sake of making another one."

Instead, Holland has one condition for making a new Spider-Man film: "It will have to be worth the while of the character."

It might not be the guarantee fans have been hoping for, but Holland made clear that he's very much still invested in the role, and would come back for the right reasons.

He continued: "That said, if we can figure that out, I would be a fool not to put the suit back on again because I owe everything to Spider-Man.

"I love the character and the people I get to work with. So, I would love to tell another story, but I’ll only tell it if we can find the right one".

Fans will just have to be patient to find out if that worthwhile story will come to light, but until then Holland is keeping busy with other projects, having most recently appeared in the AppleTV+ series The Crowded Room.
