Tom Holland Responds To James Bond Rumours After Co-Star Reveals He Talks About Being 007 'A Lot'

However, on the opposite end of the age spectrum is Tom Holland, who has earned his fame at the ripe age of 25.
Holland's Spider-Man co-star Jacob Batalon has previously revealed the Brit is keen on the role, telling GQ Tom talks about being 007 'a lot'.
Holland was asked whether he wished to avoid franchises following Spider-Man, or whether James Bond could be on the cards for him in the future.
He said: “I mean I love making franchise movies - action films are one of my favourite genres. Making them is even more fun.
“The nice thing about making these bigger movies is that they only take four months to make, so there’s still a lot of time in the year to make indie movies.”
So, not a yes, but certainly not a no.
The 25-year-old added: “I don’t even know if I want to be an actor; I might go for another couple years, settle down, have some kids and just be a dad. I don’t know.”
Holland’s comments come at a time when the 007 bosses have publicly voiced their opinions on who they want to play the next James Bond.
Without naming names, the people controlling the franchise know that they want the role to be filled by a British man of 'any ethnicity or race'.
Barbara Broccoli, who shares control of the films with her half-brother Michael G. Wilson, is sure about another thing - the character won't be played by a woman.
Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, she said: "I think it will be a man because I don’t think a woman should play James Bond. I believe in making characters for women and not just having women play men’s roles.”
She also confirmed: "He should be British, so British can be any [ethnicity or race].”
Well, it appears Tom Holland ticks all the boxes - we’ll just have to wait and see.
