Amongst the MCU community, almost no project in on Marvel's slate is building up more hype than the untitled Spider-Man 3. For a movie that literally doesn’t have a name yet, it’s undoubtedly making a name for itself long before it closes out the MCU 2021 slate.

Tom Holland’s third solo film is set to feature an epic battle as the web-slinger teams up with Doctor Strange to fight villains from both previous live-action Spider-Man franchises. It will also bring a heavy dose of MCU multiverse action as it likely connects to both 2021’s WandaVision and 2022’s Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.

Along with the huge stars set to share the stage in Spider-Man 3, a recent photo leak may confirm a family connection joining the expansive cast.


A new batch of leaked images from the Atlanta set of Marvel Studios' Spider-Man 3, from Just Jared, suggests that Harry Holland, brother of Spider-Man actor Tom Holland, may play a role in Marvel and Sony’s Spider-Man 3. Harry Holland is seen in the photos attached to a harness and wearing slightly-ragged attire, suggesting that he was on the set and in costume to act in a scene in the film:

An earlier leak also listed this description with other photos, which could connect back to Harry Holland.

“While dressed up as Spider-Man, Tom leaped from car to car while filming with a young co-star."


After rumors began circulating through the end of 2020 that over a dozen past Marvel actors would find their way into this movie, these photos are an unexpected surprise confirming more involvement for the Holland family.

Tom Holland often speaks on how involved his brothers like to be in his experience with Marvel, and the fact that his brother Harry is putting in on-set work should feel fantastic for the actor behind the friendly neighborhood Spider-Man. Harry also served as a production assistant on 2019’s Spider-Man: Far From Home, which gives him even more experience in movies as his role expands this time around.

There is no confirmation who he will play in Spider-Man 3, nor is it known how large his role will be; the harness indicates he will have some kind of action sequence at least. No matter what answers come to those questions, this will certainly be the experience of a lifetime for the Holland family.

The untitled Spider-Man 3 is currently filming and will release in theaters on December 17, 2021.
