Tom Holland is ready to take a break from acting after he wraps Spider-Man: No Way Home. After netting some credits at the onset of the 2010s, Holland rose to stardom when he was cast as Peter Parker/Spider-Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. He debuted as the personality in 2016’s Captain America: Civil War and has gone on to reprise the character five more times – appearing in two Avengers movies and headlining his solo Spider-Man trilogy. Marvel has consisted of a majority of his titles the past handful of years, but Holland’s kept occupied between MCU installments.
In addition to Spider-Man, Holland’s balanced out his filmography with smaller dramas (The Devil Each of the Time, Cherry), voiceover functions (Dolittle, Onward), along with other genre pictures (Chaos Walking, Uncharted). Last year saw Holland jump right from Uncharted into Spider-Man: No Way Home after the prior wrapped main photography. There are no denying the celebrity’s been working hard of late, and he’s ready for some time off in the not too distant future.
Holland was asked about his plans following Spider-Man 3 is complete. As he takes his much-deserved break, Holland might be taking up skiing as a new hobby:
I’m going to take a break. I’m gonna go home and just enjoy some time. It is the first time since I signed on for Spider-Man 1 I don’t have a contract with someone. I think I would go skiing. Since that’s something I have not been permitted to do, since I’ve had to stay fit and healthy and ready to work. I think I might try and go skiing somewhere. I dun. I am just going to go home and determine where the wind takes me.
Holland quickly became a favourite one of the audiences thanks to his genuine enthusiasm and boyish charm, therefore it’ll be sad to see him step off for a while. But, taking a brief hiatus is ultimately for the best, since it will give Holland an opportunity to recharge his batteries until he returns to the screen. As he says, he’s currently not under contract for any upcoming projects, so he is going to take advantage of that. As much as viewers like to watch him nobody wants to see Holland get burned out. And it’s not like Holland is retiring; he is game to create as many Spider-Man films as Marvel desires, and he is also lined up to look in a different MCU crossover film as part of both Disney and Sony’s present deal. Moviegoers will probably be seeing plenty of this actor over the upcoming few decades.
In some ways, Holland’s break is coming at the perfect moment. Spider-Man: No Way Home feels as though it’s the end of one phase of the career, concluding a trilogy and journey that began some decades ago. It’ll be interesting to see what Holland does in his second chapter when he returns from rest. Lately, he has started to show another side to his scope, most notably in Cherry and The Devil All the Time. Perhaps he will use his time off to find similar, more striking projects to take on and establish himself as a well-rounded celebrity. Obviously, in addition, it remains to be seen what Marvel plans to do with Spider-Man moving forward. Holland is one of the faces of the MCU, and the Disney/Sony partnership has become successful. It would not be surprising to see the two studios continue to work together.
