news culture Tom Holland (Spider-Man, Uncharted) would love to play a supervillain, but…
The general public mostly knows Tom Holland for his “good guy” roles. The British actor recently played two famous heroes of popular culture on screen, Nathan Drake and of course Peter Parker aka Spider-Man, but the latter would like, in his own words, to sometimes change register.
The villain’s call
To see in Tom Holland an actor 100% dedicated to the roles of heroes, even superheroes, would be to reduce his career to two sagas, certainly major ones. He proved with the release of Chaos Walkingbut above all The Devil, all the time (The Devil All the Time from its original title) that he was able to embody much more nuanced characters.
During an interview organized as part of the promotion of the film Uncharted (2022), Tom Holland spoke about it, on his desire to play a villain or supervillain. If the desire is indeed there, the opportunities are still slow to come.
Yes, I would like to play a villain. When the time is right and the right role presents itself to me, I will take up the challenge. At the moment, I haven’t been given the opportunity to play a villain. – Tom Holland (actor – Nathan Drake)
After Spider-Man and Uncharted
Tom Holland’s film news has been particularly busy in recent months with the quick release of Spider-Man: No Way Home in December 2021 and film Uncharted in February 2022. What can the actor have in store for us in the months and/or years to come? A second Spider-Man trilogy in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) is already on track, but that’s not all.
Tom Holland is originally a professional dancer and one of his pre-production projects is expected to showcase his dancing skills. Indeed, the latter is supposed to embody on screen the less famous name Fred Astaire for a biopic. Tom Holland is also announced in the casting The Crowded Room. No release date has yet been communicated for this detective series inspired by various facts and dealing with mental illness. The same goes for the previously mentioned biopic.
