There are rumors that Tom Holland might star in the ‘Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse’ sequel as a supporting actor alongside Shameik Moore’s Miles Morales. It also goes with the fact that Tom’s cameo in the first movie was cut and now given his popularity after Avengers movies, they would surely use him in their next Spider-Man animated movie.
Canceled Cameo in First Spider-Verse Movie
Tom Holland in a recent interview revealed that he recorded lines for the animated Spider-Man movie ‘Into the Spider-Verse’. It was a simple scene when Miles is traveling through a train station and Tom Holland’s character walks in the background and says, ‘Hey Kid!’ which was mainly supposed to be more of an Easter Egg.
So…what are the chances of Tom Holland voicing MCU Peter in Spider-verse 2?
