The Spider-Man star revealed that he is keen to take over as 007 from Daniel Craig – who will play the character for the final time in the delayed blockbuster No Time To Die – and joked he could be a “really short” Bond.

Speaking on the Variety Award Circuit podcast, Tom said: “Ultimately as a young British lad who loves cinema, I’d love to be James Bond.

“So y’know, I’m just putting that out there. I mean I look pretty good in a suit! I’d be like a really short James Bond.”

When it was suggested that he could star opposite Dame Maggie Smith as M, Tom replied: “It would be amazing!”

Tom Holland: ‘I keep telling them I’m the next 007’

The 24-year-old English actor previously revealed that he had been hinting to Sony Pictures bosses that he would be up for playing the legendary spy.

Tom explained: “I actually want to brush up on my James Bond knowledge, because Sony release Spider-Man and Bond.

“I keep telling them I’m the next 007 – as a joke. But also a kind of serious, ‘C’mon guys, let’s make this happen.’

“If I keep casually dropping into interviews, it’ll eventually happen.”

Tom previously opened up how Spider-Man and James Bond were the two characters he had dreamt of playing on screen.

‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’

Tom — who will make his sixth appearance as Peter Parker and his web-slinging alter ego in the Marvel Cinematic Universe in upcoming Spider-Man: Far From Home sequel — said:

“It’s funny, as a kid growing up, the two characters I’ve always wanted to play was either Spider-Man or James Bond.

“I’m honestly perfectly happy with just the one, I love this character [Spider-Man] more than anything, and I realise how lucky I am. But that said, I would also like to play James Bond.”
