Just as Christian Bale did with the Batman trilogy directed by Christopher Nolan, Tom Holland seems to be considering calling it quits after three films. The aforementioned Batman trilogy garnered a massive amount of revenue for Warner Bros. Pictures at the time, as did Holland’s Spiderman, released by Sony Pictures.
Tom Holland has the world’s attention once again as Spider-Man is set for a theatrical return. Batman is also more than noticeable at a time like this. While speaking with with EW, Holland let his thoughts on the matter be known.
“We were all treating (No Way Home) as the end of a franchise, let’s say…I think if we were lucky enough to dive into these characters again, you’d be seeing a very different version. It would no longer be the Homecoming trilogy. We would give it some time and try to build something different and tonally change the films. Whether that happens or not, I don’t know. But we were definitely treating (No Way Home) like it was coming to an end, and it felt like it.”
Tom Holland landed the role as Spiderman back in 2016, or at least that’s when audiences first saw him in the role. This was in Captain America: Civil War. That’s not a long time to be associated with a particular character and perhaps that’s a good thing. He has had a lot of other roles, many dramatic, and if he wishes to take his career in another direction, ending his take on the character is a good idea.
Films like The Devil All The Time and Chaos Walking are certainly roles that prove he has range as an actor. In the meantime, audiences anxiously await No Way Home, and for 2022, he’s linked to the Ruben Fleischer directed Unchartered – an action film.
