Tom Holland most recently committed to his darkest role in his entire career through Danny Sullivan in the Apple TV+ series The Crowded Room. Holland completely immersed himself in a complex character who has Dissociative Identity Disorder. Holland has been open about how the role demanded a lot from him and how it left him exhausted by the end.

There is one project that will be a palate cleanser for the actor and one which he would be perfect for. According to Daniel Richtman (via Screen Time), Paramount is developing a live-action adaptation of the much beloved Danny Phantom show. If this turns out to be true, Holland should at least be in the running to play the part.

The project will be another superhero-esque project that will be different than his portrayal of Spider-Man. While the character in the show is a teenager, the makers can age him up and reshape the narrative accordingly. For now, It remains to be seen whether this report from the popular scooper turns out to be true.
