Fans of Spider-Man will be happy to hear that Tom Holland wants to play the web-slinger for decades. Talking to Empire Magazine, the young actor discussed his future as the Marvel character and explained that he’d like to portray the character for decades, and has already pitched the idea to the studios.
Peter Parker is a character we see [in the comic books] as a 15-year-old boy and then as a 35-year-old man. So I have an idea of what I’d like to do, and I’ve pitched it and it’s already been taken into the boardroom. It would be really cool if it pans out, because it means I would be Spider-Man for a very long time.
Unlike previous interpretations of Spider-Man, Tom Holland is close to the actual age of the character. This means that he can continue to portray the character and us as the audience will be able to watch Peter Parker grow from a high school student well into adulthood. Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige has previously stated that he would like to see the new Spider-Man franchise follow the formula of the Harry Potter movies, in which each movie was a year of the characters life. Of course, for Holland to portray the character for this long will require Marvel Studios and Sony to renew their current deal, wich probably won’t be a problem after the likely box-office success of Spider-Man: Homecoming.
