How Did Tom Holland Become Famous?

By Tiara

As we already mentioned, Spider-Man has been around for quite some time now with his first appearance in 1962! He’s appeared in many different media formats including comics, television shows, movies, and even video games.

One of the most well known versions is the one created by writer Stan Lee and artist Steve Ditko under the pen name “Peter Parker, Superhero.” This version made its debut in July 2002 when Marvel Comics released their Spider-Man issue #700.

It was at this point that Peter became an adult and left home to live as a superhero. Since then he has starred in over 200 issues (including remastered reprints) and received several awards and accolades along the way.

Appeared in a movie

While most actors must spend their time waiting for their big break, Spider-Man actor Tom Holland has spent the past two years developing his skills while also creating an impressive legacy. He appears in several movies every year!

Most recently, he played Peter Parker/Spider-Man in Captain America: Civil War. You may have seen him before in The Avengers or Infinity Wars as Iron Man’s friend Harry Osborn.

He was also featured in The Lego Movie 2 where he voiced Emptyslayer. Not to mention his many TV appearances including Riverdale, The Flash, and more.

Became a famous Spider-Man

As we mentioned earlier, aside from his work as an actor, Tom has done some pretty cool things. He designed and made his own costume for Spider-Man which he wore in several of the recent movies!

He also wrote a short story called “Spider-Geddon” that was published in December 2018 by Marvel. In it, Peter Parker finds himself with no memory of who he is or what happened before he mysteriously became Spider-Man. The plot includes references to both Captain America: Winter Soldier and Avengers: Infinity War.

Tom played MJ in the movie adaptation of Mark Millar’s comic book series Wanted, and she received a nomination for Best Actress at the 2019 MTV Movie Awards.

He starred in the Netflix original TV show Tigertown, about two guys trying to make their way in the world after being betrayed and abandoned by their fathers. He plays one of them, Jesse, and won a GLAAD Award for Outstanding Actor in A Comedy Series for his performance this past year.

And, last but not least, he directed the second installment in the Venom film franchise, Venom 2.

Became a famous person

As we mentioned, his career as an actor has been spectacular! He made his feature film debut in Captain America: The First Avenger back in 2011, playing young Steve Rogers. Since then he has starred in many hit films such as Spider-Man: Homecoming, Thor: Ragnarok, Avengers: Infinity War, and most recently, Solo.

He is also well known for his work as Peter Parker/Spider-Man in the MCU. In addition to receiving several awards and nominations, including two Academy Awards, he has also won three Golden Globes.

His television acting career includes roles in shows like Agent Carter, Gotham, and The Flash. He played Harry Osborn (the son of Norman) on the show Legends of Tomorrow, and will reprise this role in its second season which premieres in 2020.

IMDb lists over 25 movies that he has appeared in, so it’s clear that he enjoys putting himself out there and being seen.

Published a book

A few years ago, New York writer Matthew Bond published his debut novel, The People’s Republic of Vespucci. Since then, he has become one of Hollywood’s most in-demand screenwriters.

Bond made his writing career with Disney, where he penned scripts for some of the company’s highest grossing films, including Captain America: Civil War and Spider-Man: Homecoming. He also co-wrote Avengers: Infinity War, which was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Adapted Screenplay last year.

His career as a novelist hasn’t been quite so successful — at least not yet. But that could be about to change.

After leaving Disney, Bond began working on another screenplay, this time inspired by something he read while traveling. When he got back home, he decided to turn all that inspiration into a full length story. And since then, it’s been climbing up bestseller lists across the board.

It’s a coming-of-age tale set in the near future, when space is no longer a big empty void but instead filled with floating cities and planets. In these urbanized areas, people live out their lives underwater, surfing the internet using technology implanted directly onto their skulls.

And now, the movie version of his script is scheduled to begin filming next spring.

Won another award

In June of 2018, Spider-Man star Tom Holland won his second consecutive Best Actor in a Comic Book Movie at the Academy of Geek Awards for his performance as The Hulk in Marvel’s superhero smash hit film Avengers: Infinity War.

He is now one win away from tying Heath Ledger (Catwoman) for most wins at five!

His first movie role was that of Peter Parker/Spider-Man in 2007’s Amazing Spiderman which he also starred in alongside Emma Stone (Mia). He then reteamed with director Jon Favreau to play The Iron Man in 2008. Since then, he has played multiple versions of The Hulk including The Incredible Hulk, The First Avenger, and more recently, Thor: Ragnarok where he received an Oscar nomination.

Not only does he have several iconic movie roles under his belt, but he has also won over 10 awards for his work in comics and movies as well.

Became a meme

Spider-Man has always been popular, but it’s really since his 2007 debut that he’ve become an international phenomenon. Not only is he one of the most well known comic book characters in history (he has over 130 million followers on social media), he also became something we now refer to as a “meme.”

A meme is any piece of content or concept that spread rapidly across internet forums, blogs, and sites. For example, when someone posts a picture of them with their dog, other people will make funny captions and comments about their love for animals. These are then shared, commented upon, and adapted by others, thus spreading quickly.

Spider-Man memes fall into this category because they're very humorous depictions or interpretations of the character. They go beyond just liking the movie or reading the books – many focus on specific aspects of the character and use him for different purposes.

Started a podcast

After leaving The Office, Steven Yeun took an unexpected break before deciding what to do next. He spent some time traveling across America by train with no set destination until he landed in Chicago for the night. While there, he decided to start his own show!

Yeung recorded an episode of his talk show called “The Talk Show With Steve” where he would interview different people about their career and personal life. His first guests were two men who discussed how they made it into the entertainment industry.

His audience grew quickly as he invited more celebrities onto the stage including actors, actresses, and comedians. Some of these interviews have gone viral such as when comedian Brian Regan did a segment talking about fear. Since then, many other famous people have done similar podcasts.

Since that day three years ago, Steve has hosted over 70 episodes featuring hundreds of guests, including several world-famous figures. People continue to listen to his show because he gives meaningful insight into the lives of others while also offering practical tips and tricks for achieving your dreams.

He is also known for being very down to earth and having fun with his conversations which makes him beloved among his listeners.

Became a voice actor

As we know, Spider-Man has been around for quite some time now with several different iterations of the webbed hero. He’s starred in his own films many times over, he’s appeared on TV as a guest character or narrator, and he even made an episode of The Simpsons!

But what you probably don’t know is that Spider-Man didn’t always have his own film series. In fact, it took almost twenty years after his first appearance in Amazing Fantasy #1 until he got his own feature length movie!

And his career as an acting superstar doesn’t seem all that far off either!

Voice actors are people who provide voices for characters in various media, most commonly cartoons and video games. Some are famous, like David Hasselhoff as Oingo Boingo from Spongebob Squarepants, but there are also plenty of unknown ones too!

One such person is Tom Holland. You may have seen him before in videos and podcasts where he gives dramatic performances, or perhaps you watched one of his live stream events where he discussed comic books and gaming.

However, few people outside his community knew that before this article!

Tom started his career as a voice actor back when nobody really knew who he was except for his friends and family.
