Tom Holland is ready to hang up his Spidey suit… just for a little bit.
The British actor, who is currently on the press tour for “Spider-Man: No Way Home,” spoke to People on Wednesday, December 15.
Tom has been working non-stop for the past six years and revealed he is ready for a break.

“I’ve spent the last six years being so focused on my career. I want to take a break and focus on starting a family and figuring out what I want to do outside of this world,” he told the outlet.
Tom said being a father is definitely something he wants to add to his extensive resume.
Unfortunately, Tom didn’t go into further detail about that part of becoming a father, but he did express his excitement about becoming a dad in the future.
Tom is focused on his future outside of acting
“I love kids. I can’t wait to be a dad — I can wait and I will, but I can’t wait!” he said. “If I’m at a wedding or a party, I’m always at the kids’ table hanging out. My dad’s been such a great role model for me. I think I’ve got that from him.”
The actor also opened up about playing the iconic superhero and what he hopes to see in future ‘Spider-Man’ movies.
“I’ve loved every minute of it. I’ve been so grateful to Marvel and Sony for giving us the opportunity and keeping us on and allowing our characters to progress. It’s been amazing,” Tom gushed. “And that’s why for me, I don’t want to say goodbye to Spider-Man — but I feel like we might be ready to say goodbye to Spider-Man.”
Tom hinted that he may be ready to pass along his Spidey responsibilities to a new, younger actor.

“I don’t want to be responsible for holding back the next young person that comes in who deserves it just as much,” he explained.
Tom also hopes to see more diversity in the role and any upcoming films.
“I would love to see a future of Spider-Man that’s more diverse — maybe you have a Spider-Gwen or a Spider-Woman,” he added. “We’ve had three Spider-Mans in a row; we’ve all been the same. It’d be nice to see something different.”
“Spider-Man: No Way Home” hits theaters on Friday, December 17.
