Not content with just being Spider-Man, Tom Holland also apparently wants to make his mark as 007.

His Spider-Man co-star Jacob Batalon, who plays Ned in the latest Spidey franchise, told GQ the British actor talks about becoming James Bond 'a lot'.

"He talks about being James Bond a lot," Batalon said. "A lot a lot."

Holland is only 25 years old, so he would have a long way to go in the Bond universe.

George Lazenby, the only non-Brit to ever take the 007 title, was 29 when he starred in On Her Majesty's Secret Service, making him the current reigning youngest Bond.

Now that Daniel Craig has ended his record-setting stint as the shaken not stirred MI6 agent, everyone is wondering who will take on the role.

Holland's run as Spider-Man is supposedly about to come to an end, with the final film in the trilogy, No Way Home releasing next month. That means he could be primed and ready for a new character.

Next year, he will step into the role of Nathan Drake in the video game adaption Uncharted.

Holland hasn't completely closed the door on Spider-Man, but he did say if there was a return it would look very different to the current trilogy.

"I think if we were lucky enough to dive into these characters again, you'd be seeing a very different version," he told Entertainment Weekly.

"It would no longer be the Homecoming trilogy."

Daniel Craig, the current Bond, has confirmed he will retire now No Time To Die has finally been released and producers will be announcing the new 007 in 2022.

Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson has made a play for the famous spy franchise, but the list is currently topped by Game of Thrones' Tom Hopper, followed by Tom Hardy, Richard Madden, James Norton, Idris Elba and Henry Cavill.Featured Image Credit: dpa picture alliance / Alamy Stock Photo
