But the Call Me By Your Name and Beautiful Boy actor, who subsequent seems in Little Women and the Denis Villeneuve-directed Dune, is glad to be misidentified as Holland, as a result of the Marvel actor is “a great guy.”
“Some people know a lot and are well-researched. And some people, it’s more like, ‘Wait, I know you from something,’ ‘Did we go to school together?’” Chalamet advised BBC Radio 1 when requested about being acknowledged on the road. “Or like, ‘You’re the Spider-Man [guy], you’re the Tom Holland guy, right?’ I’m like, ‘No, that’s not me.’”
“I guess I’ve never gotten that, I haven’t gotten the ‘Spider-Man guy,’ but I’ve gotten Tom,” he added. “Which is awesome, though, because he’s a great guy, and a f—ing awesome Spider-Man. The best Spider-Man.”
Before Chalamet’s The King co-star Robert Pattinson received the function of the brand new Batman, taking up from Ben Affleck, Chalamet advised Variety in October 2018 he desires to work on “anything that’s good” when requested about an curiosity in enjoying the then-vacated function of the Dark Knight.

When Variety adopted up a yr later, talking to Chalamet forward of The King, the 23-year-old actor stated he’s “not averse” to superhero universes.
“I grew up — you can ask my mum, who’s here — people in the elevator would ask me when I was five-years-old, ‘What’s your name?’ and I would say Robin,” Chalamet stated. “Actually every director steered away from putting Robin [in a movie] — well, actually Zack Snyder had a flashback of Robin, but it was like three seconds and I don’t even know if it was Robin by name, but they’ve steered away from it because it’s hard to do dramatically or something, and … I’m not averse to those universes.”
The King is now streaming on Netflix. Holland subsequent returns as Peter Parker/Spider-Man in Spider-Man 3, one other joint manufacturing between Disney-owned Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures, in theaters July 16, 2021.
