Sony Execs Want More Tom Holland Spider-Man Movies, But He Might Be Done
Spider-Man doesn't age in the comics, but real-life actors do.
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.
