We’ve already talked several times about superheroes retiring too, and obviously Tom Holland knows he can’t play teenage Peter Parker forever. The actor who for now wears the Spider-Man suit for the Marvel Cinematic Universe is in the middle of a promotional campaign for his other new film for Sony, ‘Uncharted’, which could end up becoming another successful franchise on the big screen. In an interview given to Esquire Middle EastHolland has made it clear that he has a responsibility not only with the character, but also with the public, and who has no signs of continuing in this saga after 30, deadline to pass the witness.
“Basically what I wanted to say is if I’m 30 years old and I’m still playing Spider-Man and I haven’t passed the baton to Miles Morales or Spider-Woman or something more diverse, then I will have done something wrong, in terms of the obligations that I have towards the character”says Holland, now 25. For now, he will be the only one of the three Spider-Man movies that will make more than three solo films, since it has already been announced that a fourth installment of the wall-crawler is in the development phase, and this one is, taking into account that it will take about two years to reach theaters, it could be the last if he remains faithful to the goal that he has set for himself.
In the interview, Holland was talking about how difficult it had been for him to switch the chip from the carefree teen Peter Parker he’s been playing for so long to Nathan Drake, which he describes as: “A confident, strong young man of about 25 who doesn’t exactly fit who I am. It was pretty overwhelming for me to play this character, because sometimes it felt like I was just faking it.”
A lot of action
Starring Holland as Nathan Drake and Mark Wahlberg in the role of Victor Sullivan, ‘Uncharted’ is the first adaptation of this homonymous video game to the cinema and is directed by Ruben Fleischer (‘Welcome to Zombieland’) from a script signed by Art Marcum, Rafe Judkins and Matt Holloway based on the story and characters by Amy Hennig, Jon Hanley Rosenberg and Mark D. Walker. The film introduces us to a cunning thief who is recruited by veteran bounty hunter ‘Sully’ Suvivan to recover Ferdinand Magellan’s lost fortune 500 years ago. The plan will end up becoming a fast-paced race across the world to get ahead of the evil Moncada (Antonio Banderas), who proclaims himself the sole heir to the treasure. The cast is completed by Sophia Ali and Tati Gabrielle and premieres on February 11.
