Tom Holland refused to wear Spider-Man 3 wig after “cooler” Uncharted hair –

Spider-Man star Tom Holland refused to wear Peter Parker’s “loser” wig while filming the upcoming third movie, having grown accustomed to his look as Nathan Drake in Uncharted.

The British actor has had a busy few months recently, having wrapped production on the long-awaited video game adaptation and then heading straight into shooting the Marvel sequel.

Due to there being no real time in between, the hair and make-up team on the untitled Spider-Man project decided to change the appearance of his ‘do with faux pieces – but Holland wasn’t keen on the new additions and insisted that he keep his edgier locks.

“My hair in Uncharted is much cooler,” he told Esquire as part of a lengthy new profile. “I have cool shaved sides and it’s slick at the back, and that’s not very Peter Parker. He’s a bit of a loser. So they put this wig on me that was just around the sides.

“For the first time in my life, I put my foot down as the leading actor and was like, ‘I’m not f***ing wearing that wig. You can just . . . I’m going to have shorter hair and you’re going to have to deal with it.'”

In the new Spider-Man movie, the 24-year-old will be joined on screen by Jacob Batalon, Tony Rev0lori, Doctor Strange‘s Benedict Cumberbatch, Alfred Molina (as Doctor Otto Octavius), Jamie Foxx, Marisa Tomei and Euphoria‘s Zendaya, who is back as the titular hero’s love interest MJ.

As it stands, Holland – who recently threw his hat into the ring when it comes to playing James Bond in the future – “honestly [has] no idea what this film is about and [he’s] eight weeks into shooting it.”

That’s not all that unusual for MCU titles these days, however. It just means that there are likely lots of surprises in store for the audience when it finally reaches cinemas.

Holland’s third Spider-Man instalment is hoping to release in the US on December 17, 2021. Spider-Man: Far From Home is available now on DVD, Blu-ray and digital download.
