In an interview with Variety's Awards Circuit Podcast, the Spider-Man actor was asked what sort of role from a book or series he would like to play most. Holland said that he has two upcoming roles that will come out in a few years time that he can't talk about just yet but that he is really "excited about," but one particular character stuck out in his mind more than others.
