Tom Holland is ready for a Peter Parker and Wolverine team-up movie.
During an interview, Holland afforded this idea upon being asked if there were any Marvel characters not yet introduced to the MCU that he’d like his Spider-Man to appear alongside.
“I would like to see Spider-Man and Wolverine,” the actor said during an interview for Far From Home. “There’s a really, really interesting story in the Ultimate Spider-Mans where Spider-Man and Wolverine swap bodies for a day. And, like, Peter Parker wakes up in Wolverine’s body…”
“And then Wolverine wakes up in Peter Parker’s body,” Holland continues, “and he like goes to school and all of a sudden Peter Parker’s like being this really gross, rude man and he like starts hitting on the school teacher and stuff. And then all of a sudden Wolverine, who’s this really scary guy, is all like, ‘Oh hey guys! What are you doing?’”
Holland is referring to the story “Jump the Shark” by Brian Michael Bendis and Mark Bagley that appeared in Ultimate Spider-Man #67 in 2004. Bendis is having trouble believing he head Holland reference it in this interview. ‘EVERYone else can see this too, right?” Bendis tweeted.
“Jump the Shark” was previously adapted for the Disney XD animated series Ultimate Spider-Man. Peter Parker and James “Logan” Howlett swap bodies in the tenth episode of the show’s first season, aptly titled “Freaky.”
Opening July 2, director Jon Watts’ Spider-Man: Far From Home stars Tom Holland, Samuel L. Jackson, Zendaya, Cobie Smulders, Jon Favreau, JB Smoove, Jacob Batalon and Martin Starr, with Marisa Tomei and Jake Gyllenhaal.
