In Spider-Man: Homecoming, Peter Parker (Tom Holland) dealt with high school drama alongside Michael Keaton‘s villain. In Spider-Man: Far from Home, he dealt with overseas high school drama alongside Jake Gyllenhaal‘s villain. What’s in store for the next MCU Spidey film, what’s now being referred to as Spider-Man 3?

My favorite parts of the previous two MCU Spidey films are watching Holland and Zendaya’s delightfully awkward chemistry together. I want those crazy kids to work out! Is that what we’ll see? “As to the relationship between Peter and MJ, I’m not too sure what it will be.” Mr. Holland giveth, and Mr. Holland taketh away.

Holland also gave a long update on Cherry, his super-intriguing work with Avengers: Endgame directors the Russo Brothers:
