Tom Holland has made a big impact on Marvel fans since he joined the MCU as the teenage Peter Parker in 2016’s Captain America: Civil War. Since then, he’s gone onto appear in three more movies, with this summer’s Spider-Man: Far From Home bringing his current list of times playing the character up to a round five. This already makes him the most prolific of the cinematic Spider-Men – sorry, Tobey Maquire (3) and Andrew Garfield (2) – but Holland has no plans to stop web-slinging any time soon.
During a Far From Home set visit in London, the 22-year-old actor was asked about the experience of making his second Spidey solo film and Holland revealed that he’d happily do 20 movies as the wall-crawler.
“It feels pretty good. It’s an amazing experience as an actor and such a privileged experience as an actor to get to play characters that you love so much. Time and time again. Um, I definitely have the mindset of, if you want to make 20 of these movies, then I’m down because it’s really fun. It’s, it’s been a real privilege and so much fun. Maybe even more fun this time around than the last one. It’s been great.”

Luckily for Holland – and his many fans – Marvel seems happy to oblige him as we’re hearing that, after Avengers: Endgame wrapped up the story of the original six heroes, Spider-Man could become the next face of the franchise. This possibility was even drawn attention to in the recent FFH trailer, with Peter being asked if he was “the new Iron Man.”
Of course, it’s actually up to Sony whether they decide to continue their deal with Marvel. Thankfully, though, there’s been no indication of a breakdown in the relationship between the two studios, so it looks like we’re still on the way to at least completing that Homecoming trilogy.
After his resurrection in Endgame, Peter Parker is next heading to Europe to face Jake Gyllenhaal’s Mysterio in Spider-Man: Far From Home, which you can catch in cinemas on July 2nd.
