With Tom Holland being the youngest Spider-Man actor yet, he was cast as the web-head at the young age of 19. For a lot of people, 19 would be around the age they may choose to travel and see the world. This is something Holland never got the chance to do as he went directly into his long-term Marvel contract after his finishing his final years of school.
In an interview with USA Today, Holland was after about “what’s next after No Way Home” to which the actor confirmed his plans to “take a break and travel the world:”
I’m going to take a break and travel the world. It’s the first time since I signed on to (“Spider-Man: Homecoming”) that I don’t have a contract with someone. I might go skiing because that’s something I’ve not really been allowed to do because it’s obviously a dangerous sport. I’ve been very careful over the years, which is why I’ve become obsessed with golf because it’s the only sport I can play without getting injured.”
Additionally, Holland’s comments confirm what was previously believed in that the upcoming sequel marks the end of the actor’s contract, giving him the freedom to do as he pleases for a while.
So, it makes sense that the British actor would choose to take a break from the role now that he finally has the opportunity to do so. Holland has said many times his desire to keep playing Spider-Man for as long as he can, so it’s likely he will be back at some point, even if that is a little further down the line.
