Zendaya, Tom Holland React to Their Spider-Man Audition Tape
Zendaya and Tom Holland Giggle Over Their Original "Spider-Man" Audition Tapes
Back in 2015, Tom Holland — already a successful young British actor and dancer — was looking for the next big break in his career. That summer, he signed on to become the Marvel Cinematic Universe's Spider-Man and was soon joined by Zendaya as MJ and Jacob Batalon as Ned. In a new video from Sony, the trio look back at their audition tapes for the movies.
Holland, it turns out, decided to start his audition off by doing a backflip onto the screen — the Sony video shows him covering his face while watching the clip as Zendaya and Batalon giggle. Zendaya, meanwhile, calls Batalon a "cutie" as they all laugh at his audition. They switch to Zendaya's tape, with Holland remarking that she's the only one who was "really good."
"I'd say they made a good decision," Zendaya said about the three of them being cast. Their first film together was 2017's "Spider-Man: Homecoming." As of today, it's unclear what their future with the franchise looks like. The third film in the series, "Spider-Man: No Way Home," ended with the connection between the three friends severed. Sony plans on doing another trilogy of Spider-Man movies with Marvel, but Holland has said that he's still considering what path he wants to take with Peter Parker. "I don't know what the future of Spider-Man looks like. I don't know whether I'm going to be a part of it," he told Extra in 2021.
Holland and Zendaya have plenty of projects lined up for the future. He's attached to a Fred Astaire biopic, while Zendaya will play Ronnie Spector in a new film and appear in "Dune 2"; she also has a third season of "Euphoria" in the wings.
