Tom Holland began his career at the age of 12 with a West End theater production of ‘Billy Elliot the Musical’ in 2008. His stunning portrayal as the titular character of Billy Elliot was widely praised and the then Prime Minister of the U.K., Gordon Brown, invited him as part of the fifth anniversary of ‘Billy Elliot the Musical.’ He really came to limelight for the global audience in 2013 when he acted in ‘The Impossible’ alongside actors like Ewan Mcgregor and Naomi Watts. After ‘The Impossible’, Holland starred in Ron Howard’s ‘In the Heart of the Sea’ alongside Chris Hemsworth, Benjamin Walker, and Cillian Murphy. He shot to stardom after joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Peter Parker a.k.a Spider-Man with the 2016 movie ‘Captain America: Civil War.’
Movies like ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ (2017), ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ (2018), and ‘Avengers: Endgame’ (2019) catapulted him as one of the most popular Marvel actors working in America today. Now you must be wondering what is the next Tom Holland movie or TV show? Well, here’s the list of upcoming Tom Holland films and TV shows scheduled to release in the near future.
