It’s been a very intense few weeks for Tom Holland. A few days after the premiere of ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ there is much talk about the future of the character and whether Holland will be part of it. Amy Pascal, producer of the Spidey films, recently stated that of course there would be more films with Tom Holland as Peter Parker and even hinted at a new trilogy after ‘No Way Home’. Days before the actor said in another interview that perhaps it was time to “turn the page” and give the suit to someone else and also commented: “If I keep playing Spider-Man after 30, I have done something wrong”.
In a recent interview with Additional TV the actor wanted to clarify his words, and especially that last statement. “This is a perfect example of how everything you say is always misinterpreted and no one is telling the truth. I don’t know what the future of Spider-Man will be like. I don’t know if I’m going to be part of it. Spider-Man will always live in me, and I know Amy and the studio are in the process of deciding what the next chapter of Spider-Man will look like. If it happens to be with me, then that’s exciting; But if it’s time for me to step aside, I’ll do it with pride. What I was referring to in that interview where I said ‘I would have done something wrong if I continued to play Spider-Man when I’m 30’ is because I’d be taking away someone’s chance to come and change what it means to be Spider-Man. Spider-Man could be more diverse; It could be a woman, it could be anyone. So that’s what I was saying, and I thank the journalist for changing it, I appreciate it “.
It is true that in the original interview He had suggested that it might be time for Miles Morales to make his MCU appearance to make the franchise a bit more diverse.. Although with the recent announcement of two sequels to ‘Spider-Man: A New Universe’ for 2022 and 2023 Sony may not want to overexploit the character.
The reaction that was misrepresented
Reporters are pulling receipts from Tom Holland on the film’s press tour. One of them reminded him of an interview that went viral during the ‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’ tour in which many pointed out his reaction when Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire were mentioned. Holland, Zendaya, and Jacob Batalon burst out laughing and replied that this reaction had nothing to do with the other Spider-Man. “You’re misinterpreting the clip, I promise you“ Zendaya tells him.
