Actor Tom Holland had a particularly tough time on the set of Sony’s Uncharted live-action film, going so far as to say that filming Uncharted “absolutely broke” him.
In an interview with GQ (via GameSpot), Holland discussed the physical and mental toll that filming stunt-heavy projects like Uncharted and Marvel films have taken on him over the years.
Holland had an incredibly brief three days between filming Uncharted in Berlin and moving on to Spider-Man: No Way Home in Atlanta.
Holland also touched on the physical exhaustion he felt during the press tour for Spider-Man: Homecoming. Holland traveled to 17 countries, performing backflips on request and eventually becoming ill enough that he vomited backstage immediately after a press conference.
There will always be an ongoing debate on which actor portrayed Spider-Man the best. But for now, Tom Holland is wearing the Spidey suit quite well in the MCU. The actor brings a certain boyish charm to the role that fans adore, and it fits Peter Parker’s personality well
Any actor who headlines a superhero movie faces significant pressure; that’s simply the nature of the beast. Superhero characters have huge, extremely opinionated fan bases, film studios are banking on actors that can ideally sustain a multi-picture franchise
performers have to please critics and news outlets that are increasingly exhausted by superhero properties. But few have had to deal with the weight of expectations placed on Tom Holland, a.k.a. Hollywood’s Spider-Man.
The character’s origin story sees Peter Parker first try to capitalize on his superpowers by becoming a professional wrestler, but even when that career doesn’t pan out, Spider-Man maintains a certain sense of flair as a superhero.
