About Tom Holland
Tom Holland is a young English actor who was thrust into stardom at just 20 years old after landing the role of a lifetime – being cast as Spider-Man – and having the opportunity to work alongside Robert Downey Jr. His once in a lifetime role has opened up multitudes of opportunities for him, including the ability to not only choose between dream projects, but also pitch ideas in the industry. Holland has become untouchable at such an early stage in his career and he has a clear plan for his career path that he has actively put in place.
As of 2020, we estimate Tom Holland has a net worth of $16 million dollars.
How did Tom Holland get so rich?
At first, it wasn’t a question of who would play Spider-Man in the cinematic universe, but if Spider-Man would be in the Marvel Cinematic Universe at all, as it was beginning to look like Sony and Disney couldn’t come to an agreement over the rights. It was lucky for Holland that the two studios set aside their differences as the role of Spider-Man is looking to become extremely lucrative for him.
Tom Holland’s introduction to the Marvel Cinematic Universe began with Captain America: Civil War (2016) and with a check of the sum of $250,000, wasn’t a bad pay day for the then 20 year old. Holland isn’t in the movie much, all Holland had to do was act in a couple of scenes and record some over-dubs. After that, Holland played Spider-Man in four more MCU movies, with more to come, and the checks keep getting bigger and bigger, rumored to be paid $1.5 million for Homecoming and $3 million for Avengers: Infinity War.
Holland has also been cast in the movie adaptation of the wildly popular video-game franchise, Uncharted. The actor would play the protagonist Nathan Drake as he goes on an Indiana Jones type adventure. Holland even pitched his own idea for the movie, which has been green-lit and production has already begun. If successful, the project could be more lucrative than his role of Spider-Man, as this time he would also be a producer, and if successful there will be another franchise on the cards. There are four primary Uncharted console games currently in the series. However, fans of the video-game franchise are skeptical Holland can pull off the role of Nathan Drake, as Nate is much older, and by the end of the franchise, in his late 50’s.
Why is he so famous?
Although most people think Tom Holland got lucky being cast in Spider-Man, he has been an actor since he was a child, performing in major theaters and in low budget movies with movie stars. When he was younger, Holland trained in dancing and gymnastics, even getting bullied for it, but who’s laughing now?
At just 12 years old, Tom Holland played the leading role in the Billy Elliot The Musical on the West End, and not long after went on to shoot The Impossible alongside Ewan McGregor and Naomi Watts. It was rumored that he was going to be nominated for an Academy Award for the role, and at this point the actor was just 16 years old. The following year he doubled down and starred in two movies, How I Live Now with Saoirse Ronan, and Locke with Tom Hardy.
When being cast as Spider-Man, it came down to the fact that Holland had the best chemistry with Iron-Man actor, Robert Downey Jr., who would have a prominent role in Holland’s first appearance in a Marvel movie, Captain America: Civil War, and the follow-up, Spider-Man: Homecoming. Holland beat out a huge list of actors, which is reported to be over 1000. A shortlist of six actors were all in the similar age bracket as Holland, including Hugo star Asa Butterfield, and Charlie Rowe, known for The Golden Compass. But it was Holland that took the edge due to his bond with Downey and his background in theater and dance, as playing the web-slinger would obviously require the actor to be nimble.
After scoring more great roles in the small time he had between the tight shooting schedule of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Holland’s most recent project is the Pixar animation Onward in which he stars alongside his Avengers companion, Chris Pratt. Though Holland’s baby-face isn’t visible, his voice is instantly recognizable.
What makes him so successful?
On set of The Avengers: Infinity War, when everybody was fading to dust, Holland was given loose directions on how to act. He then gave an improvised performance that stunned the whole cast and the directors, the Russo brothers, when he started screaming “I don’t want to go!” and began crying.
Tom Holland received rave reviews in his role as the web-slinger, and much more praise than any other actor who portrayed the character before him. As Peter Parker is a teenager who still gets homework, Holland is closer to that age than any actor who played Spider-Man. He looks extremely young too. The film was so successful because, not only did Holland look the part, but the movie was a John Hughes-type coming-of-age high school movie and the film crew perfected the whole presentation and captured the idea of the character more than anybody else could.
Tom Holland has starred in five Marvel movies, with a sixth soon to be produced, and a possibility of Holland’s Peter Parker being featured in a Venom sequel. That’s if Sony and Disney can quell their differences. For such a young age, Tom Holland has made the right choice and worked hard at his craft to deservedly have an estimated net worth of $16 million in 2020.
Within in the next couple of years, we are going to see Holland’s profile grow exponentially. He has several huge projects coming up, including re-teaming with the the Russo brothers for crime drama Cherry. Holland has personally explained he has big plans, and showed an interest in doing more franchises, which sent fans in to a frenzy speculating which franchises would suit him. Two of those franchises he may have already started, such as the aforementioned Uncharted movie, and Chaos Walking, the Doug Liman directed sci-fi movie adaptation of The Knife of Never Letting Go, which is the first novel of a trilogy. All of these movies are currently slated to be released in 2021.
