Tom Holland Says That Star Spider-Man's Acting Outside Of The MCU Is "Incredibly Scary"

Tom Holland expressed fear about taking on roles outside the MCU, describing Spider-Man as a "safety blanket."  

The demanding role in AppleTV+ series The Crowded Room led Holland to take a year-long break from acting.  

Uncertainty surrounds Holland's future as Spider-Man in the MCU, but meetings for Spider-Man 4 development have reportedly occurred.  

Tom Holland found roles outside the MCU "incredibly scary" due to the security provided by Spider-Man and the "Marvel machine."  

Following Spider-Man: No Way Home, Holland has accepted more roles outside the MCU, marking an adjustment for the actor.  

Holland's portrayal of Danny Sullivan in The Crowded Room was both demanding and exposing, prompting a year off from acting.  

Holland received support from MCU colleagues Zendaya, Robert Downey Jr., and Benedict Cumberbatch during his challenging role in The Crowded Room.  

Spider-Man's role, which Holland has portrayed since 2016, is described by the actor as a safety blanket, making other roles intimidating.
