Tom Holland Clarifies His Statements About Being Spider-Man Beyond 30 Years


Tom Holland: The famous actor assures that his words were misinterpreted and that he actually pointed out that Spider-Man could be more diverse, “anything”. We recently echoed some statements by Tom Holland in which he apparently commented that he did not see himself playing Spider-Man beyond the age of 30, assuring that if so, “something would be wrong”. Now, the actor himself has clarified these statements in a recent interview about Spider-Man No Way Home, explaining that his words were taken out of context and that they misinterpreted his real message.

Thus, and through Extra TV, the actor has qualified his words: “This is a perfect example of how everything that is said is always misinterpreted and nobody tells the truth. I don’t know what the future of Spider-Man will be like. I don’t know if I’m going to be part of it. Spider-Man will always live in me, and I know Amy and the studio are looking forward to finding out what the next chapter of Spider-Man will look like. If that happens to me, then it will be very exciting; but if it’s time to walk away, then I’ll do it with pride, “says the actor.

“What I was referring to in that interview where I said ‘if I’m playing Spider-Man when I’m 30, I’ll have done something wrong’, it’s because I’d be taking the opportunity for someone to come and change what it means to be Spider- Man. Spider-Man could be more diverse, he could be a female character, he could be anything. So that’s what I was saying, and thanks to that journalist for changing that, I appreciate it very much ”, Holland concludes, not without a certain irony in his words.

So much so, that the actor then assures that he would be delighted to see other Spider-Man movies with other characters such as Miles Morales, Silk or Jackpot, for example.
