Since 2016, Tom Holland has excelled in his role as the superhero in red. The actor as Peter Parker/Spider-Man has made impressive use of his speed, agility, spider senses, and other abilities throughout each film.


His co-star, Zendaya, has also been a standout in The Spider-Man series as MJ, aka Michelle Jones. Given how much attention Holland and Zendaya are receiving, many people might not be aware that the actor’s younger brother (Harry Holland), was also intended to be in a 2021 Jon Watts movie. 

Even the 27-year-old actor once recounted one of the funniest events of his life, when he was able to exact the ultimate retaliation against his brother.

The incident took place on the sets of the MCU’s multiverse drama, Spider-Man: No Way Home, in which Harry Holland was also supposed to have a very small part.

Why Did Tom Holland Take Revenge On His Younger Brother?

Tom Holland‘s portrayal of Spider-Man in the MCU helped him establish himself as a well-known actor on a global scale. The 27-year-old’s life changed drastically after being revealed as the third iteration of the web-slinger in Captain America: Civil War. However, playing the part has its difficulties, and Spider-Man: No Way Home featured a similar incident. 


On The Graham Norton Show, Holland admitted that he could never stop a particular day, despite the fact that he had no complaints about the role that had given him so much. It was the interaction between his Spider-Man and Alfred Molina‘s Doctor Octopus in which he was forced to hang upside down for 11 hours.

He acknowledged that the scene was brutal to film, but when he tried to explain this to his brother, he did not take it seriously and responded:

“Mate, you’re Spider-Man. S*ck it up and get on with it. You’ll be fine.”

But when Harry Holland, the actor’s younger brother, was given a minor role in Jon Watts’ 2021 film, he finally found a great chance to avenge. In addition to suggesting his brother’s name, Tom Holland asked the stunt coordinator to create a scene in which he (Harry Holland) would hang upside down.


“We cast Harry and he’s on set. I go up to the stunt coordinator and I’m like, ‘Please just whatever you do with the stunt, make it so he’s upside down.’”

For those who are unaware, the Uncharted actor’s younger brother had a thief role in Spider-Man: No Way Home that was ultimately removed from the theatrical release.

Tom Holland to Leave Hollywood Following New Spider-Man Film? 

Tom Holland has been performing since he was nine years old, but his 2016 portrayal of Spider-Man, in which he made his Marvel Superhero debut in Captain America: Civil War, catapulted him to fame.


The actor has been featured as the lead in multiple Spider-Man movies since then. Holland, however, recently stated that he prefers to avoid Hollywood as much as possible. Also, he previously hinted in June that he might give up portraying Spider-Man on the big screen.

The Cherry star discussed this with Jay Shetty on his podcast:

“’Look, I really am a massive fan of making movies but I really do not like Hollywood, it is not for me. The business really scares me. I understand that I’m a part of that business, and I enjoy my kind of interactions with it. But that said, I am always looking for ways to kind of remove myself from it, to kind of just live as normal a life as possible.”

Holland continued by saying that a few of his friends have “lost themselves” in the industry:


“I’ve seen so many people come before me and lose themselves, and I’ve had friends that I’ve grown up with that aren’t friends of mine anymore, because they’ve lost themselves to this business.”

However, the 27-year-old also clarified: 

“I’m going to have to plead the fifth there, because I’m not prepared to start talking about the future of Spider-Man – as everyone knows, I love him, he changed my life. I love the character.”

His most recent appearance was in the Apple TV+ series, The Crowded Room, which reportedly had a negative impact on the actor and probably made him want to take a break. 

Spider-Man: No Way Home is available to stream on STARZ.
