Sony Execs Want More Tom Holland Spider-Man Movies, But He Might Be Done
Doing the same thing over and over can leave you feeling like you want to try something new. That apparently applies even to Spider-Man movies. Tom Holland is thinking about moving on, but Spider-Man producer Amy Pascal hopes he’ll rethink that, according to GQ Magazine.
“Maybe it’s time for me to move on,” Holland said. “Maybe what’s best for Spider-Man is that they do a Miles Morales film.”
For Holland, it seems to be about playing the same character for such a long time.
“If I’m playing Spider-Man after I’m 30, I’ve done something wrong,” he continued. It’s been a busy few years, too. “Since I got cast as Spider-Man, I haven’t really taken a break.”
Avengers: Infinity War and Endgame codirector Joe Russo notes that Holland is “stepping into the role that Robert Downey once occupied for Marvel, which is the favorite character, and a lot of ways the soul of the Marvel universe.”
Holland’s contract ends with the upcoming Spider-Man: No Way Home, but Spider-Man producer Amy Pascal wants to keep Holland around.
“I’ve talked to him about doing, like, 100 more,” Pascal said. “I’m never going to make Spider-Man movies without him. Are you kidding me?”
Holland’s eyes are on the future, though. He has aspirations to play James Bond, according to Spider-Man co-star Jacob Batalon. He’s also been working on a script with his brother, Harry, is about to shoot a drama called The Crowded Room for Apple TV+, and Pascal herself wants the trained dancer to play Fred Astaire as well. Whether or not he’ll put on the red and blue lycra is still up in the air.
Spider-Man: No Way Home hits theaters on December 17. Ahead of the movie, make sure to watch the latest trailer and our full breakdown of it.
