Cast in 2015, actor Tom Holland has appeared as Peter Parker in six MCU films. With his next appearance (Spider-Man: No Way Home) looking like it will be some type of conclusion to its Homecoming trilogy, it sounds like the British actor might be looking to depart from the role.
During a long profile piece with GQ, Holland talked about how he’s considering moving on from the character. He also briefly discussed where the franchise could go if he were to leave.
“Maybe it is time for me to move on,” Holland said in the interview. “Maybe what’s best for Spider-Man is that they do a Miles Morales film. I have to take Peter Parker into account as well, because he is an important part of my life…[but] If I’m playing Spider-Man after I’m 30, I’ve done something wrong.”
Holland is obviously not going to play the web-slinger forever. But given that he’s still pretty young (25) and the money that the solo Spidey films bring in, I don’t think he’s done. In fact, in the end, I think he’ll decide to do another trilogy.
If for some reason he does decide to walk and or if Sony and Marvel Studios can’t reach a new agreement, then a live-action Miles Morales Spider-Man film would be a great substitute. With his popular appearance in the animated film Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse and his own video game, fans would absolutely love that.
Spider-Man: No Way Home is set to hit theaters on December 17. Check out the recently released second trailer.
