Tom Holland raised eyebrows while discussing his future as Spider-Man when he seemed to not be enthusiastic about continuing the character. During an interview with GQ, Holland seemed to indicate that Miles Morales should take over the webs, saying, “If I’m playing Spider-Man after I’m 30, I’ve done something wrong.”
Following some pushback on those comments from fans and industry insiders, Holland sought to clarify his remarks.
In an interview with Extra via Digital Spy, Holland explained, “No one actually speaks the truth. I don’t know what the future of Spider-Man looks like.”
“I don’t know whether I’m going to be a part of it. Spider-Man will always live on in me and I know that [Sony exec] Amy [Pascal] and the studio are keen to figure out what the next chapter of Spider-Man looks like. If that happens to be with me, then that’s very exciting but, you know, if it’s time for me to walk away then I’ll do so proudly,” he said.
“What I was referring to, in that interview, it’s because I would be taking up an opportunity for someone to come in and change what being Spider-Man means. Spider-Man could be more diverse, it could be a female character, it could be anything,” he continued, saying he would like Peter Parker to evolve into a mentor similar to the MCU’s Iron Man.
Ahead of the release of Tom Holland’s next appearance as Peter Parker in ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home,’ producer Amy Pascal seemed to indicate that there will be another trilogy with Holland returning to the webs.
“This is not the last movie that we are going to make with Marvel – [this is not] the last Spider-Man movie,” she told Fandango. “We are getting ready to make the next Spider-Man movie with Tom Holland and Marvel. We’re thinking of this as three films, and now we’re going to go onto the next three. This is not the last of our MCU movies.”
‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ has the largest presale tickets for an MCU film since ‘Avengers: Endgame.’
