Since, one can now time travel in MCU and soon there is going to be a multiverse, the dead may not necessarily stay dead. Speaking to GQ in a profile for Tom Holland regarding his latest film Cherry, Robert said that it was funny that he bumped into Keanu (Reeves) the other day, somewhere in Malibu. Keanu told him that he had just been filming The Matrix again. Keanu had stepped back into that world that he once occupied. Robert said, “I asked him what it felt like: ‘Like being in Australia.’ What I am saying is there was a Spider-Man before Tom Holland and there will be a Spider-Man after Tom Holland. That’s facts, Tommo. Sorry.” Lastly, he added, “Well…I have alighted, for now. Real-world to save. But never say never.”
