Tom Holland must feel at the center of the universe right now. At just 25 years old, he’s already starred in three films as Spider-Man (plus many other appearances in the Avengers movies), and this one coming out in no time, Spider-Man No Way Home, is one of the most anticipated in history… for all that it could mean.
Tom Holland in the MCU
However, Holland doesn’t see his continuity as Spider-Man as clear. In an interview for GQ, he responded that he’s not so sure about continuing to play the character. “Maybe it’s time to move on. Maybe the best thing for Spider-Man is for them to make a Miles Morales movie.”
Holland is mindful that Peter Parker has been an important part of his life, but admits that “if I’m still playing Spider-Man after I turn 30, I must have done something wrong.”
Holland’s contract ends with No Way Home, having appeared in six total Marvel Cinematic Universe films since 2016. What does the future hold for him?
Tom Holland as Nathan Drake or James Bond?
Holland is about to start (if lucky) a film franchise with Uncharted, the PlayStation video game adaptation that opens in January. Nathan Drake is a popular character, but Holland is aiming even higher: James Bond.
On multiple occasions, Holland has expressed his desires to play James Bond (in 2019 and in 2017), especially now that Daniel Craig has definitely hung up the tuxedo. Jacob Batalon (Ned, Parker’s best friend in Spider-Man) acknowledges that Tom “talks about being James Bond a lot. A lot, a lot.”
At the moment, the search for the new James Bond hasn’t begun, but after the success of No Time To Die, the Broccoli’s won’t take long to get going.
