Extending his relationship with Sony Pictures, Tom Holland stars as globe-trotter Nathan Drake in the upcoming Uncharted (2022) movie. Tom Holland became a household name with Marvel’s Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) and Avengers: Infinity War (2018), and now that actor is taking on a new beloved character: Nathan Drake.

Starring alongside the Avenger is Hollywood legend Mark Wahlberg (Victor Sullivan), Sophia Taylor Ali, and Antonio Banderas. The film takes place before the first Uncharted video game, showcasing Drake’s earliest adventures and how he befriended Sully.

The best-selling Uncharted video game series takes inspiration from Geoge Lucas and Steven Spielberg’s Indiana Jones franchise, as treasure hunter Nathan Drake explores lost civilizations and forgotten ruins. Tom Holland describes his Nathan Drake character as “if Indiana Jones and James Bond had had a baby, it would be Nathan Drake. That is the way I keep describing the film,” according to MovieWeb.

Tom Holland took to Instagram to share the new trailer:

Thought I’d just leave this here. Trust me when I say you ain’t ready for this movie. @markwahlberg and I are gonna take you a huge adventure. Uncharted is yours to enjoy on February 18th.

Holland shared that filming the action-packed live-action Uncharted film was more difficult than filming any Spider-Man or Marvel movie. Though he’s stepping away from his superhero role in the Marvel Universe, Tom Holland is bringing a huge following of Marvel fans to the theaters to watch the movie.

Speaking with Variety, Holland said:

“I think the easiest way to describe the film without belittling it in any way is like if Indiana Jones and James Bond had had a baby, it would be Nathan Drake. That is the way I keep describing the film.”
