”Spider-Man: No Way Home“ opens in theaters Dec. 17
Tom Holland has hinted that his time playing Spider-Man may be ending sooner than you think.
In a new interview with GQ, the 25-year-old said that if he’s still playing the web-slinger five years from now, something’s “wrong” with his career. And he even touched on the idea that a good future for the character would be to pursue a Miles Morales version of Spider-Man.
“Maybe it is time for me to move on. 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,” Holland said, adding, “If I’m playing Spider-Man after I’m 30, I’ve done something wrong.”
But that’s not to say Holland couldn’t do more as Spider-Man, considering he’s still far younger than Robert Downey Jr. was when he finally decided to call it quits as Iron Man. Holland reiterated, however, as he’s done in past interviews, that “Spider-Man: No Way Home” is currently the last “Spider-Man” film on his contract. He called the experience of suddenly not having a job as “very strange” and “kind of terrifying,” but also “really exciting.”
And throughout the interview, Holland discussed having new ambitions of not being an actor for the rest of his life, being able to meet someone and settle down, and even think about directing or moonlighting as a carpenter.
Up next for Holland is “Uncharted,” another potential franchise in which he stars as adventurer Nathan Drake in an adaptation of the PlayStation video game series alongside Mark Wahlberg. He told GQ that he sees the film as a test for whether audiences will follow his career outside of being a Marvel superhero.
“This is that moment of, like, ‘Can Tom Holland stand up on his own and be a leading man?’ I know that makes me sound like a dick for saying that,” Holland said. “But for me it is, ‘Can I do it without the Lycra?’”
“Spider-Man: No Way Home” opens in theaters on Dec. 17. Check out the full interview with Tom Holland via GQ.
