It’s likely he would have filmed one for Avengers: Endgame as it was shot back-to-back with Infinity War way before his death and he appeared in that Avengers movie.
Spider-Man: Far From Home is expected in cinemas this summer, while on the Fox side of things there is both X-Men: Dark Phoenix and The New Mutants set for 2019 releases too.
We’ll have to wait and see until each one’s release to know for sure… fingers crossed they do.
