Ben Affleck and Daniel Craig better watch out because Marvel’s new Spider-Man is gunning for their jobs.
Not content with just playing Peter Parker, young star Tom Holland revealed that there are at least two more iconic franchise heroes he'd love to portray.
“James Bond,” Holland reveals while being interviewed by Spider-Man: Homecoming co-star Zendaya for Interview magazine. “Or maybe I'll do Batman.”
“It would be a little unfair if you got to play Spider-Man, James Bond, and Batman, Tom,” Zendaya points out in response.
“It would be so unfair. But life isn't fair, Zendaya,” Holland concludes.
Landing that kind of major franchise role is no easy task of course, as evident in the process Holland went through to be cast as Spider-Man.
“That process was five months," Holland recalls. "I did eight auditions. I did five self-tapes, and then a screen test with Robert Downey Jr. and a screen test with Chris Evans. In the screen test with Robert Downey Jr., they brought me into the room and I met him. I was so nervous. In my head, I thought, ‘Wow, you look really weird in person. You don’t look like you do onscreen.’ I found out later that I met his stand-in.”
One role down for Tom Holland, two more to go.
