Tom Holland ascended to stardom through his portrayal of Peter Parker/ Spider-Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, first beginning with Captain America: Civil War (2016), then moving on to his own trilogy of Spider-Man films, with Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017), Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019), and Spider-Man: No Way Home (2021).

In Spider-Man: No Way Home, Holland worked alongside Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield, who both reprised their multiversal roles as Spider-Man / Peter Parker.

Now, as many fans are looking forward to the fourth installment of the Spider-Man franchise with Holland, it seems the actor might have something else in mind.

GFR is reporting that Tom Holland is currently in discussions for a role with Sony Pictures, but it’s not Spider-Man.

Sony Pictures is currently in the midst of planning a live-action Tarzan film based on author Edgar Rice Burroughs’ character. Holland is in talks to play the main character (Tarzan), and while this would be a strange role to say the least, there is some intrigue behind what he could bring to the character.

This past year, Tom Holland starred alongside Mark Wahlberg in Uncharted (2022), a movie based on the beloved Sony Playstation video game. The movie performed pretty well, amassing more than $401 million at the box office with a budget of just $120 million.

Holland has been in the headlines quite a bit lately, but not for his next big potential movie. Instead, the actor and girlfriend Zendaya have been breaking the internet with rumors galore about their relationship and a potential engagement. Of course, to this point, this has come to fruition.

Zendaya first appeared as MJ in Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) alongside Holland and Jacob Batalon (Ned Leeds) before going on to star in the two sequels. In total, the franchise has accumulated nearly $4 billion in its trilogy, which is expected to continue soon with another installment.
