Tom Holland has finally spilled the beans about Spider Man 4, explaining "everyone wants it to happen".

The Marvel actor opened up about the project - which is seemingly in the early days of pre-production - while attending St Andrews’ Sands International Film Festival.

Speaking with Deadline while enjoying a round of golf on one of the Scottish location’s famous greens, the Last Call actor shared: “The simple answer is that I’ll always want to do Spider-Man films. I owe my life and career to Spider-Man. So the simple answer is yes, I’ll always want to do more.”

The actor - who will soon be appearing on stage in Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet - then revealed that the fourth film has “the best in the business working toward whatever the story might be,” an important factor as the star feels making another film is a “complicated” task in which its essential that they don’t damage the legacy of his character’s already existing trilogy. 

“Until we’ve cracked it, we have a legacy to protect,” he explained. “The third movie was so special in so many ways that we need to make sure we do the right thing [with a fourth].”

The Devil All the Time actor then continued: “This is the first time in this process that I’ve been part of the creative so early. It’s just a process where I’m watching and learning. It’s just a really fun stage for me. Like I said, everyone wants it to happen. But we want to make sure we’re not overdoing the same things.”

A fourth Spider-Man film has still not been officially confirmed by Marvel and Sony, but Holland’s comments certainly seem to suggest the studio is interested in making another film to continue its universe’s Peter Parker’s story.

Opening up about other projects which he’s in the early stages of working on, the actor told Deadline: “I’ve got a few projects that I’m really excited about and scripts are coming in now and they’re great. I read something the other day that absolutely blew my mind.”
