Spider-Man star Tom Holland claims role of legendary British icon

The third and final (for now) solo Marvel Spider-Man movie, No Way Home, hits cinemas next month. The actor behind Peter Parker, Holland, only finished filming in recent weeks, but he has already turned his head to a new project – and you can watch the trailer now.

It was announced today that Holland will be taking on the iconic British role of Percy Pig.

Yes, the confectionary swine made famous for its sweet taste, usually sold by M&S in their latest M&S Food Christmas Advert.

The advert debuted on ITV‘s This Morning earlier  today.

Speaking about playing this iconic pig, Holland said: “I’ve loved Percy Pigs for as long as I can remember, and when I was asked to be his voice – his first EVER voice – it took me less than a second to say yes.”

It seems Holland did have some trouble with the pork-trayal of the character, however.

He said: “Getting the snort right was a challenge, but I hope I nailed it and you all like what you hear!

“I did consider asking for a lifetime supply of Percy Pigs but I figured I’ve got to save room for all of that amazing M&S Christmas food!”

Director of Marketing for M&S Food, Sharry Cramond, added: “The M&S Christmas Food range this year is better than ever and who better to tell customers about our delicious Christmas food range than the national treasure and much-loved M&S icon himself, Percy Pig.”

If he is leaving the Marvel universe, Holland is certainly going out with a band.

Rumours suggest he will be performing on the big screen alongside former Spider-Men actors Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield.

This will spark the beginning of a live-action Spider-Verse situation, which is not to be missed.

Meanwhile, a trailer was recently released for Holland’s next blockbuster, Uncharted.

Based on the video game series of the same name, Uncharted sees Holland playing the franchise’s hero Nathan Drake.

Opposite him is his legendary sidekick, Sully (played by Mark Wahlberg).

The series was made famous on the PlayStation consoles, with this film taking particular inspiration from the 2012 entry Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception.

Spider-Man No Way Home hits cinemas on December 17.
