Tom Holland is clear when to pass the Spider-man baton

Tom Holland once again clarifies his future as Spider-man in the UCM and talks about when the wall-crawling witness would pass

Tom Holland has clarified his future as spider-man on more than one occasion, and even went to great lengths to call out the press for misrepresenting his comments, after the internet was flooded with rumors that the actor would not play the role once he reached the age of 30.

Given that producer Amy Pascal has made it perfectly clear that she wants another trilogy starring Tom Holland, without even mentioning the possibility of additional crossovers in Marvel Studios and Sony’s respective shared universes, there’s little chance she’ll hang up the wall-crawling suit for as long as it reaches the milestone in June 2026.

In an interview with Esquire Middle East, Holland was forced to brush off speculation about his future yet again, but this time he added that he’d love to hand over the mantle to Miles Morales, Spider-Woman, or someone more diverse. “What I was basically trying to say is that if I’m 30 years old, still playing Spider-Man, and I haven’t passed the baton to Miles Morales or Spider-Woman or something more diverse, then I’ve done something wrong in the sense of the duties I have with the character. No, like, ‘If I’m playing Spider-Man in my 30s, I’m a loser.

In a way, he is not right in his words, since Marvel Studios does not restart its own franchises, so the next most logical step once Holland decides that his time as Peter Parker is over, would be for someone like Miles Morales to take The relay. It might not happen for a while, but it would be a fitting way to end one era of Spider-Man while also starting the next.
