Tom Holland seems to have hinted that he could be bidding the Spider-Man franchise a farewell soon. His statements come at the heels of his latest Spider-Man movie, Spider-Man: No Way Home. 

The British actor has appeared in six Marvel movies, playing the superhero. He made his debut as the MCU superhero in Captain America: Civil War and went on to star in his solo Spider-Man movies, Spider-Man: Homecoming and Spider-Man: Far From Home. He also appeared in both Avengers movies – Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame. 

In a recent interview with People, Tom opened up about his plans for the future and hinted at his exit from the franchise. “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,” he said. 

The actor hinted he's ready to pass the torch on. "I don't want to be responsible for holding back the next young person that comes in who deserves it just as much so," Tom said. Sharing his thoughts on the future of the franchise, Tom hopes the Spider-Man universe expands and incorporates different Spidey characters.
