  • Holland told Deadline he doesn't know yet if he will play Spider-Man again.

  • "If it's time for me to say goodbye, then I will do so proudly," he said.

  • In November, franchise producer Amy Pascal said Holland would return for another movie.

Though the end of "Spider-Man: No Way Home" has everything in place for Tom Holland to reprise his role as the iconic Marvel character, the actor admits he doesn't know if he'll put on the suit again.

In an interview with Deadline that launched Wednesday night, Holland revealed his mindset on playing the character going forward while speaking with fellow Spidey actors and "NWH" stars Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield.

"The truthful answer — and I've done a whole press tour where all I do is lie — the truth is, and you're not going to like the truth, I don't know the answer to that question," Holland told the trade.

"This film for me was as special as an experience could ever be," he continued. "Sharing the screen with these guys. Playing Spider-Man could be quite an alienating experience because, you know, we're the only three blokes who have done it. So to share that with you two, it's been such a wonderful experience, of which I have such amazing memories."

"I don't know," he added about what the future holds for him as Spidey. "I know I love this character, and I know that I am not ready to say goodbye."

He continued: "But if it's time for me to say goodbye, then I will do so proudly, knowing that I've achieved everything I wanted to with this character, and sharing it with these boys will be forever one of the most special experiences of my career. So, if it's time, it's time. If it's not, it's not. But at the moment, I don't know."

"No Way Home" marked Holland's sixth time playing Peter Parker/Spider-Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. He made his debut as the character in 2016's "Captain America: Civil War," and filmed three standalone movies, including 2017's "Spider-Man: Homecoming" and 2019's "Spider-Man: Far From Home."

Before "No Way Home" opened in theaters, franchise producer Amy Pascal told Fandango that there wouldn't just be more "Spider-Man" movies being released by Sony, but that Holland would star in them.

"We are getting ready to make the next 'Spider-Man' movie with Tom Holland and Marvel," she said.

Marvel president Kevin Feige also confirmed to the New York Times that development has begun on a fourth Spider-Man film.

"Amy and I and Disney and Sony are talking about — yes, we're actively beginning to develop where the story heads next, which I only say outright because I don't want fans to go through any separation trauma like what happened after "Far From Home," Feige told the newspaper in December.

However, Holland's comments could suggest that things have changed.

"There definitely was a sense for me, as an actor, that this was the last time that I could potentially don the suit," Holland also said in the Deadline interview. "So a lot of that emotion came from the act of saying goodbye, which is one of the biggest themes throughout this film."

This isn't the first time Holland has questioned whether he'll wear the Spidey suit again. In November, he told GQ, "Maybe it is time for me to move on. Maybe what's best for 'Spider-Man' is that they do a Miles Morales film. I have to take Peter Parker into account as well, because he is an important part of my life."

The 25-year-old added: "If I'm playing Spider-Man after I'm 30, I've done something wrong."

Representatives for Sony didn't immediately respond to Insider's request for comment.
