The star, who has swept ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ and has just released the film of the same name based on the ‘Uncharted’ video game saga, has since 2016 immersed in the Marvel Cinematic Universe playing Peter Parker, chaining him with various projects, and he needs a break.

Before releasing ‘No Way Home’, he already told ComicBookMovie his opinion on the future of his character, explaining that he should also take a vacation before returning to the cinema: “Speaking as the guy who plays Spider-Man, I know the character very well and I think he needs to take a break. (…) I think what we need to do with Spider-Man is let him breathe and almost let the audience tell us what they want.“.
In addition, the actor has also admitted to People your desire to start a family: “I’ve spent the last six years very focused on my career. I want to take a break and focus on raising a family and figuring out what I want to do outside of this world. I love children. I can’t wait to be a father“.
