The third iteration of Spider-Man made its first appearance in Captain America: Civil War. Now, it’s been revealed that Tom Holland, the actor behind the newest film version of the Wall-Crawler, is signed on for six movies, according to a report by HollywoodReporter.com’s Tatiana Siegel.
“They give you options, and those could be exercised whenever,” Holland said. “Like a cameo in Avengers. I’m unclear as to which movies, though. I do know I have three Spider-Man movies and three solo movies contracted. But if you have another movie, Marvel is so good at working around it. They’re very respectful of your life, really. They understand that you have to work on other movies, and they try and fix it up so you can work around each other.”
In the same interview, Holland discussed how his version of Spider-Man would be different from past big-screen interpretations.
“You’ve seen the billionaire, the scientist, the soldier. Now it’s time to see the kid,” the 20-year-old said. “And every decision we make on set is based off how would a kid react in this situation, so every fight scene we have is designed in a way that’s almost child-friendly, so he never actually punches anyone. It’s all done kind of by accident. I think the biggest difference is his youth and innocence.”
And while this is the third time the Spider-Man movie franchise has been rebooted, Holland is still drawing inspiration from Tobey Maguire‘s and Andrew Garfield‘s versions of the Webslinger. Though, he hasn’t been in direct contact with either of them, he said.
“It’s so lucky because I’ve got five movies that I can draw from,” Holland said. “I watched every single one years before I even got cast in this movie. And then we watched them all again and just picked little things that I thought was great and that I’d like to keep.”
Spider-Man: Homecoming is slated to release July 7, 2017.
