Tom Holland is probably one of the most prominent names on the internet at the moment, which, while hardly new territory for him — he’s Spider-Man, after all. “Spider-Man: No Way Home,” which is set to arrive on December 17 as (arguably) the biggest film of the year, is the latest installment in Holland’s “Spider-Man” trilogy.
The upcoming threequel may have demanded a lot from him regarding his on-screen performance, in addition to his abilities as an MCU secret keeper. Acting in movies at the caliber of “No Way Home” appears to be an undeniably tough job, so much so that the young star recently revealed it has left him reconsidering if he wants to continue in this line of work down the line.
Regarding his time as a teenage wall-crawling hero, the current Spider-Man has previously admitted that he doesn’t plan to keep the role forever. He also told USA Today back in March (via YouTube) that he could see himself having a break for the lights, camera, and web-swinging action. Where that might take him, though, even Holland is unsure about, but it’s something he’s undoubtedly set on discovering for himself.
Holland feels a ‘pre-midlife crisis’ coming on
Speaking to Sky News regarding his career so far, Hollywood hotshot Tom Holland revealed that, since he put on the Spider-Man “underoos,” things have been insane, and it seems to have led the actor to rethink a few things. “I don’t even know if I want to be an actor,” he admitted.
“I started acting when I was 11, and I haven’t done anything else, so I’d like to go and do other things. Genuinely, I’m sort of … having a midlife crisis — at 25, I’m having like a pre-midlife crisis.”
He’s not the only actor to consider a little self-care of late. Following his action-packed team-up with Dwayne Johnson in “Red Notice,” and his upcoming festive bit of fun alongside Will Ferrell in “Spirited,” Ryan Reynolds announced he’d be taking a break from acting recently to focus on family.
Regardless of what Holland settles on, it’s safe to say that his career thus far has been a bright one, and that includes being the best web-slingers of the big screen. We can see how he does in his next adventure when “Spider-Man: No Way Home” arrives in cinemas on December 17.
