“Spider-Man: No Way Home” was a massive success for Sony Pictures, grossing over a billion at the box-office. With the massive success this film series has seen starring Tom Holland it’s made many question if we’ll see a fourth movie? In a new interview, a star of the third film is making it seem a lot less likely.
In an interview with Collider, Ned Leeds, actor Jacob Batalon, revealed he does not know anything about the future of the series–including the idea of a “Spider-Man 4.” However, he revealed he’d be down if the opportunity arose.
“I feel like actors are the last people to know,” Batalon explained. “I think that people assume that actors are always hiding secrets. I promise you, we don’t know anything. But again, if it’s the right place, at the right time, with the right group of people that we’ve been with, I would say, why not? But other than that, whatever happens, happens. Really, those decisions are up to the big bosses, the people who sign the checks. We’re open to the idea, but we’re not hoping for it.”
In the same interview, Batalon also spoke about the “beautiful” experience of filming No Way Home, and calls the film’s plot a “poignant ending” to their trio of movies.
“We all very much were crying, our last day of work,” Batalon revealed. “Even at the premiere, we were all crying. It was such a beautiful experience to be a part of, I think for all of us. We started at a very young age, being teenagers, essentially, when we started the first movie. And to really watch the arc of the movies come together and all of our characters come full circle, I would say that it was crazy. It was a crazy thing to read. It was crazy to see Andrew and Tobey in the script. It was crazy to have all the villains in the script. And then, to have it end the way it did, on such a cliffhanger, obviously, everyone wasn’t expecting that. I would say that it’s such a poignant ending to our movies. It really puts an exclamation on the continuance of Spider-Man, but maybe not with us, and I think that’s a great thing. We may not necessarily be a part of it, in the end, but it was a beautiful ride anyway.”
