Many Marvel fans love seeing Tom Holland star as the latest (and possibly greatest?) Spider-Man. And apparently, Holland himself loves playing the role so much that he wants to be Spider-Man forever…or at least until he can’t walk anymore.
The actor made his on-screen debut as the new Spider-Man in “Captain America: Civil War,” and he’s stolen our hearts in several Marvel films since then. With all of the press surrounding the theatrical release of “Spider-Man: Far From Home,” the sequel to the first film in which Holland plays the titular role, we’re not surprised that Holland is spilling all of his feelings when it comes to the superhero. We’re lucky that we didn’t see the last of Spider-Man in “Avengers: Endgame,” and it looks like Holland hopes to have a lot more up his sleeve, even after “Far From Home.” In a recent interview with Rotten Tomatoes, Holland confessed that he hopes to continue playing the role of Spider-Man in as many MCU projects as possible. And with Marvel said to be planning seven more Spider-Man films with Holland as the star, his wish may just come true.
“I honestly would play Spider-Man until I can’t walk anymore,” Holland said to Rotten Tomatoes. “I love this character so much and it was like my childhood dream to play this character. I’m loving it, I’m really enjoying it. I’m really loving what we can do with this movie and the people that we can touch and the amazing things we can do with the platform that this movie gives us. So I’m just really enjoying it.”

There you have it, folks. Holland wants to play Spider-Man forever. And since we heard similar sentiments expressed by Chris Hemsworth (who said he’d like to play Thor for as long as possible), we hope Marvel Studios is listening. If we had it our way, we’d never recast either of these roles…and we’d also probably bring back Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man. But that’s another story.
What do you think of Tom Holland’s role as Spider-Man? Should he keep playing the superhero for as long as possible? Let us know in the comments!
