With great power comes great responsibility, and Tom Holland is up to the challenge.

The “Spider-Man” actor told Entertainment Weekly Saturday that he’s not leaving the franchise just yet, even if it’s leaving the superpower clutches of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

“Basically, we’ve made five great movies," he said at Disney’s D23 Expo in Anaheim, Calif. “It’s been five amazing years. I’ve had the time of my life. Who knows what the future holds?”

What the 23-year-old Brit does know is: “I’m going to continue playing Spider-Man and having the time of my life. It’s going to be so fun, however we choose to do it.”

On Tuesday, the real life multiverse seemed to expand when Disney and Sony announced that despite several Spider-Man movies to come (at least two of which will be stand-alones starring Holland), Marvel and producer Kevin Feige would no longer be involved in the character’s big-screen adventures.

“We knew there was a finite amount of time that we’d be able to do this,” Feige added. “We told the story we wanted to tell, and I’ll always be thankful for that.”

So far, Holland’s incarnation of the Queens native debuted in “Captain America: Civil War,” earned his own origin story in “Spider-Man: Homecoming,” appeared (and then disintegrated) in “Avengers: Infinity War,” reappeared in “Avengers: Endgame,” and this summer, starred in “Spider-Man” Far From Home” — Sony’s highest-grossing film of all time.

While the franchise’s very lucrative future “will be different,” Holland is confident that “it will be equally as awesome and amazing, and we’ll find new ways to make it even cooler.”
