Spider-Man might take a break from web slinging to start a family. Tom Holland has his sights set on becoming a dad after starring in three Spider-Man films.
The Englishman, who went public with his and costar Zendaya‘s romance in the summer of 2021, has always loved the idea of being a parent. We are still processing the fact that he wants to set aside his acting career and settle down. In fact, he said he would have become a teacher had he not gone into acting. The 25-year-old actor told People that he wants to take a break from acting to start a family of his own.
“I’ve spent the last six years being so focused on my career, I want to take a break and focus on starting a family and figuring out what I want to do outside of this world. I love kids. I can’t wait to be a dad — I can wait, and I will, but I can’t wait, If I’m at a wedding or a party, I’m always at the kids’ table hanging out.”
Holland first appeared as Peter Parker and his alter ego Spider-Man in 2017’s Spider-Man: Homecoming. He then portrayed the superhero in 2019’s Spider-Man: Far From Home and reprised the role in the upcoming Spider-Man: No Way Home, which hits theaters on Friday, December 17. He loved his time as Spidey and gushed about the opportunity that Marvel provided him.
“I’ve loved every minute of it. I’ve been so grateful to Marvel and Sony for giving us the opportunity and keeping us on and allowing our characters to progress. It’s been amazing. And that’s why for me, I don’t want to say goodbye to Spider-Man — but I feel like we might be ready to say goodbye to Spider-Man.”
The actor teased that he isn’t sure what his future holds, adding that he’d be “very content with just being a stay-at-home dad, and producing a film here and there.” Holland noted that after shooting the upcoming AppleTV+ series The Crowded Room, he could change his mind.
