The web-spinners at the Marvel franchise are temporarily leaving the fourth Spider-Man movie dangling in mid-air, thanks to the writers strike.

Tom Holland described the pause to a Variety interviewer in New York on Thursday, where the actor was premiering The Crowded Room, his new show for Apple TV+. While Holland said he couldn’t divulge much, he did say that further meetings with Marvel have been put on hold. He was quoted as saying that “We’ve put the meetings on pause in solidarity with the writers. There’[ve] been multiple conversations had, but at this point it’s very, very early stages.”

Holland’s interview came just a day after Spider-Man producer Amy Pascal told reporters: “Are we going to make another movie? Of course we are. We’re in the process, but the writers strike, nobody is working during the strike. We’re all being supporters and whenever they get themselves together, we’ll get started.”

Pascal’s remarks came at the New York premiere of the animated feature Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse. At the event, she also hinted at the plausibility of a Spider-Woman film and a live-action appearance by Miles Morales.

For his part, Holland has other webs to spin. He’s starring in The Crowded Room, a thriller about Danny Sullivan, who’d been arrested for a 1979 shooting. The versatile actor is also credited as the executive producer for that film.

The most recent film in the franchise, Spider-Man: No Way Home, was released in 2021, starring Holland as Peter Parker and Zendaya a sMJ. In that offering, Peter was depicted trying to get Doctor Strange to rewrite history and bring him back to the innocent days before his spiderish identity was widely known.

Holland, who turned 27 on Thursday, made his film debut as a teenager in the 2012 movie The Impossible. Zendaya, who turns 27 in September, had earlier made her feature-film debut in the 2017 release Spider-Man: Homecoming and has also recorded several albums and singles as a vocalist on the Hollywood Records label.
