Tom Holland's future as Spider-Man is reportedly in doubt.
He's funny, a little clumsy, and we're rooting for him and Zendaya 'til the end of time.
So, it's safe to say we're more than a little heartbroken at reports that Tom might not be donning his Spidey suit for much longer.
To be clear, this isn't confirmed but given that Tom's previously said we 'might be ready to say goodbye to Spider-Man' you can see why we're concerned.
It all started when journalist Jeff Sneider reported on Sony's plans for the franchise in The Ankler.
"Okay, so Sony may not have the biggest bench in terms of franchises, but it wisely made a deal with Marvel Studios to get its marquee character Spider-Man into the MCU, which helped make the studio's solo Spidey movies must-sees, even more so.
"And while plans are in motion for another Spidey trilogy starring Tom Holland, I don't believe he has actually signed a deal yet, so those plans remain unofficial for now."
Yep, so it seems like Tom might not fully be on board, although Sneider went on to add: "That said, I'm sure that more Spidey adventures with Holland are a top priority for Rothman & Co., which is also counting on him as the anchor of its budding Uncharted franchise as well."
Sony exec Tom Rothman echoed that plans were up-in-the-air in a recent interview with Deadline.
When asked if director Jon Watts, Zendaya and Tom would be returning for another film, the Sony exec didn't confirm that anything was set in stone. Instead, he said: "That whole group, we hope."
So, definitely doesn't sound like anything's concrete.
What's more, is that Tom has made comments about being ready to explore other projects in the past.
In an interview with People, the actor said: "I've loved every minute of it. I've been so grateful to Marvel and Sony for giving us the opportunity and keeping us on and allowing our characters to progress. It's been amazing."
But he went on to add: "And that's why for me, I don't want to say goodbye to Spider-Man — but I feel like we might be ready to say goodbye to Spider-Man."
We are in no way ready to say goodbye to Tom as Spidey, so here's hoping Sony sorts a deal quickly.
