Tom Holland Suggests His Tenure as Spider-Man May Be Over


When it comes to Spider-Man, fans have their own go-to Peter Parker. For some, Tobey Maguire suits the role while others look to Andrew Garfield. These days, Tom Holland embodies the superhero with ease, and fans are eager to see him return to the role in Spider-Man: No Way Home. But thanks to a new interview, the fandom has learned Holland isn’t sure whether he’ll ever return to the character.


The discussion was held with Entertainment Weekly as the magazine did a big feature on Spider-Man: No Way Home. It was there Holland spoke candidly about shooting the buzzed-about sequel, and one scene made the actor wonder whether he’ll ever get to play Peter Parker again.

“We’ve been making these films for five years now,” Holland shared with the site. “We’ve had such an amazing relationship, the three of us. We’ve been with each other every step of the way.”


“We’ve done every single film, every single press tour. So this one scene, [we didn’t know] if this would be the last time [we were all working together.] [It] was heartbreaking but also really exciting because we’re all moving into the next chapter of our careers. So sharing that moment with them was maybe the best day I’ve ever had on set. I don’t think I’ve cried like that ever.”


“We were all treating [No Way Home] as the end of a franchise, let’s say,” Holland explained. “I think if we were lucky enough to dive into these characters again, you’d be seeing a very different version. It would no longer be the Homecoming trilogy. We would give it some time and try to build something different and tonally change the films. Whether that happens or not, I don’t know. But we were definitely treating [No Way Home] like it was coming to an end, and it felt like it.” 


Spider-Man: No Way Home is due to swing into theaters December 17.

I'm not as much of a "CoMiCs NeEd MoAr DiVeRsItY & iNcLuSiOn" advocate as my girlfriend often is, but we both love funny books, crispy bacon, straight bourbon and hip hop. Add yet, we never vote the same, so we cancel each other out... and that works perfectly in my book!
