In 2016 MCU fans finally got to see their Spider-Man back on screen. Tom Holland made his debut back then in Captain America: Civil War as Peter Parker. Since then he has proven that his take on the web slinger is unlike anything seen ever before in live action. The newest installment to the Spider-Man franchise called Far From Home is only proving just how amazing and perfect Holland is for the role. But apart from playing Spider-Man to perfection, he is also open to giving fans an even more diverse portrayal of the web slinger in the MCU.
Tom Holland On A More Diverse Spider-Man
Recently, Tom Holland was asked if his iteration of Spider-Man could be gay. Then Holland told The Sunday Times that:
“Yeah of course, I can’t talk about the future of the character because honestly I don’t know and it’s out of my hands. But I do know a lot about the future of Marvel and they are going to be representing lots of different people in the next few years. The world isn’t as simple as a straight white guy. It doesn’t end there, and these films need to represent more than one type of person.”
Will Marvel Really Have More Representation In The Future?
Holland’s comments on Marvel trying to create more representation in future movies rings true with other reports. These reports have stated that the next upcoming movie called The Eternals will feature a gay or bisexual character. The talk of Marvel bringing in more representation was also confirmed by MCU president Kevin Feige. Along with this we can only hope Marvel gives more female characters their own films and doesn’t stop at just Captain Marvel and the upcoming Black Widow movie.
Spider-Man: Far From Home is directed by Jon Watts and stars Tom Holland, Zendaya, Samuel L. Jackson, Jacob Batalon and more.
Spider-Man: Far From Home is in theatres now.
