Tom Holland's wall-crawling tenure is just getting started with Spider-Man: Homecoming now less than two weeks away, but that hasn't stopped the actor from looking ahead to the future.
With his Spidey caught in a gray area between Marvel Studios' MCU and Sony's adjunct universe of their own, the idea of bringing in addition web-slingers down the road isn't out of the question. When asked at a Homecoming press event how he felt about the idea of his Peter Parker taking a newbie under his web, Holland seemed willing and ready, and it didn't take long for talk of the Ultimate Spider-Man himself, Miles Morales, to come to the forefront.
"That would be something that I would be very up for doing, it’s something that I would really really hope to happen," Holland stated in an interview with ScreenRant. "I think Miles Morales is a great character, I think it would be fantastic to have an actor of color playing a superhero on screen and I just think it’s going to be something very cool and something very exciting for this universe."
The bit of forward thinking shouldn't come as a shock to anyone, given Holland's dedication to the role, one that he hopes to maintain for many years to come. While there aren't any plans to bring a version of Morales to the live-action side of things (at least, none that have been made public), Sony clearly has confidence in the character. The studio's presently untitled animated Spider-Man film, debuting December 14, 2018, features Morales in the title role.
Arriving July 7, director Jon Watts’ Spider-Man: Homecoming stars Tom Holland as Spider-Man and Michael Keaton as Vulture, in addition to Zendaya, Donald Glover, Jacob Batalon, Laura Harrier, Tony Revolori, Tyne Daly, Bokeem Woodbine, Marisa Tomei and Robert Downey Jr.
