“I think the first ‘Spider-Verse’ movie is the best Spider-Man movie that’s ever been made. I am so proud of everyone involved. Amy Pascal is like my mom. I was supposed to go with her as her date. I couldn’t go because I’m here working. But I’m incredibly proud of them. I’m excited about the second one. I’m sure it will live up to every expectation, and I can’t wait to see it.”

The British actor who appeared in an intense role in The Crowded Room, explained in June to Extra TV that filming the show was hard on him. He explained,

“It was a tough time, for sure. We were exploring certain emotions that I have definitely never experienced before. And then, on top of that, being a producer, dealing with the day-to-day problems that come with any film set just added that extra level of pressure. I’m now taking a year off, and that is a result of how difficult this show was.”

Tom Holland hesitant about playing Spider-Man in the fourth movie

The actor, when asked about his future in the franchise, said that maybe it’s time for him to move on and he has to consider Peter Parker into account as well because he is an important part of his life. He said during an interview with GQ in 2021

“If I’m playing Spider-Man after I’m 30, I’ve done something wrong. I don’t know what the future of Spider-Man looks like. I don’t know whether I’m going to be a part of it. Spider-Man will always live on in me, and I know that [producer] Amy [Pascal] and the studio are keen to figure out what the next chapter of Spider-Man looks like. If that happens to be with me, then that’s very exciting but, you know, if it’s time for me to walk away, then I’ll do so proudly.”
