Tom Holland Wants To Take A Break From Acting And Focus On Starting A Family
| Last updated
Tom Holland has revealed his plans for the future include taking a break from acting and focusing on starting his own family.
The 25-year-old opened up about all things Spider-Man as his latest outing as the webslinger Spider-Man: No Way Home hit cinemas.
As well as chatting about the superhero franchise, he also opened up about personal plans and it seems he's going to be rather busy.
Speaking to People, he said: "I've spent the last six years being so focused on my career. I want to take a break and focus on starting a family and figuring out what I want to do outside of this world."
He went on to add: "I love kids. I can't wait to be a dad - I can wait and I will, but I can't wait!
"If I'm at a wedding or a party, I'm always at the kids' table hanging out. My dad's been such a great role model for me. I think I've got that from him."
Touching on the fact that this Spider-Man instalment might be his last, he added: "I've loved every minute of it. I've been so grateful to Marvel and Sony for giving us the opportunity and keeping us on and allowing our characters to progress. It's been amazing.
"And that's why for me, I don't want to say goodbye to Spider-Man - but I feel like we might be ready to say goodbye to Spider-Man.
"I don't want to be responsible for holding back the next young person that comes in who deserves it just as much so."
How is this man a real life human being?
Speaking about what he thinks is in store, he said: "I would love to see a future of Spider-Man that's more diverse - maybe you have a Spider-Gwen or a Spider-Woman.
"We've had three Spider-Mans in a row; we've all been the same. It'd be nice to see something different."
After the release of Spider-Man: No Way Home critics began to rate the film and it seems to be doing very well indeed. In fact, some people have dubbed it the best yet.
