Spider-Man: Homecoming actor Tom Holland has no intention of hanging up the mask anytime soon, after the young up-and-comer told Empire that he wants to play Spidey for a very long time.Holland noted that he’s already pitched an arc to the Powers That Be that would have him explore Peter Parker as a 35-year-old man. There are some logistical issues to consider, of course; by the time Homecoming opens in two months’ time, Tom Holland will already have turned 21, and given that Marvel plans to construct a Spider-Man trilogy rooted in a high school setting, it remains to be seen whether Marvel’s creative players will take heed of the actor’s wildly ambitious vision.
He said “Peter Parker is a character we see [in the comic books] as a 15-year-old boy and then as a 35-year-old man. So I have an idea of what I’d like to do, and I’ve pitched it and it’s already been taken into the boardroom. It would be really cool if it pans out, because it means I would be Spider-Man for a very long time.”
