Spider-Man: Homecoming was released in July 2017, with Holland reprising his role from Captain America: Civil War. Homecoming earned good reviews and high accolades from critics, with his performance described as “a stellar performance provided by a natural actor.” The picture earned more than $800 million globally.

Holland reprised his role as Spider-Man in Avengers: Infinity War, which was released on April 27, 2018, and subsequently in Avengers: Endgame, which was released on April 26, 2019. In July 2018, he began filming the sequel Spider-Man: Far From Home, which was completed in October of that year.

Unrealized projects and upcoming projects

Holland was cast as a teenage Nathan Drake in the 2022 film version of Naughty Dog’s Uncharted video game franchise in May 2017. Principal photography began on March 16, 2020, in Berlin, and will conclude in October 2020.  He is also set to play the lead in Amy Pascal’s production firm Pascal Pictures’ adaptation of Beneath a Scarlet Sky.

Holland was cast in The Modern Ocean, an experimental epic directed by Shane Carruth, in 2016. Holland referred to it as “the finest script I’ve ever read.” Holland is expected to play a supporting part among an ensemble cast that includes Keanu Reeves, Daniel Radcliffe, Anne Hathaway, Jeff Goldblum, Chlo Grace Moretz, Asa Butterfield, Abraham Attah, and Irrfan Khan.

The project is unlikely to commence production anytime soon after Carruth announced his retirement and published the whole screenplay and unfinished soundtrack.  Holland was also lobbying for a major part in Sam Mendes’ 1917 in September 2018 but was unable to do so since he was legally bound to conduct reshoots for Chaos Walking in April 2019, with George MacKay eventually taking the lead. 

Holland has stated that he wants to “do some more franchises” as well as play “some meatier independent parts and eventually…transition to the other side of the camera and branch into directing. Producer Amy Pascal, on the other hand, declared her intention to keep Holland in the part. 

Holland’s Spider-Man co-star Jacob Batalon has also hinted to MovieWeb that Holland might be interested in succeeding Daniel Craig as James Bond, with Holland keeping tight-lipped on the matter. He revealed in December 2021 that he will play Fred Astaire in a Sony biopic that is now in development.
