Tom Holland Hints He's Done With Spider-Man, Thinks Miles Morales Should Make MCU Debut

Tom Holland isn't sure he'll be playing Spider-Man for much longer. The actor, who replaced Andrew Garfield in the role when Spidey was rebooted for his MCU debut in Captain America: Civil War, has revealed that with his contract coming to an end, it might be time to move on.


In a recent interview with GQ, Holland discussed his time playing Spider-Man and considered his future. While it seems Sony and Marvel would love for him to continue, he's less convinced. He also suggested that his departure would be the perfect opportunity to finally bring Miles Morales into the MCU.

Take a look at the trailer for Spider-Man: No Way Home below!



“Maybe it is time for me to move on," he said. "Maybe what’s best for Spider-Man is that they do a Miles Morales film. If I’m playing Spider-Man after I’m 30, I’ve done something wrong.”

We already know that Miles exists in the MCU, of course. While we haven't met him yet, his uncle Aaron (played by Donald Glover in Spider-Man: Homecoming) mentions his nephew by name. That's nothing more than a fun Easter egg at this stage, of course, but there's every chance it could turn into something more somewhere down the road.

Spider-Man: No Way Home swings into cinemas on December 15, and it looks like a pretty definitive finale to Holland's solo Spidey movies. Back in October, Holland even admitted that the upcoming movie feels like the end of a franchise. He added that if he comes back, it would have to be different to what came before.


"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," Holland said. "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."

This is definitely something of a shift, given that last year Holland said he'd love to play Spidey for at least seven more movies. Still, it's important to know when to call it a day and move on - although I'm hoping he's got at least a few more adventures in him before he hangs up the webs for good.
