    As a passionate fan of the Spider-Man franchise, I am deeply concerned about the direction in which it is heading with Tom Holland portraying our beloved web-slinger. This petition aims to address the need for a change in casting to ensure authenticity and preserve the true essence of Spider-Man.

    Growing up, Spider-Man was my ultimate hero. His relatable struggles, witty humor, and unwavering sense of justice inspired me to be a better person. However, since Tom Holland took on the role, I have noticed a significant departure from what made Spider-Man so iconic.

    Holland's public persona has shown him to be an anti-American Trump hater. As someone who values patriotism and believes in respecting diverse political opinions, it is disheartening to see an actor representing such an important character hold such divisive views. This not only undermines our shared values but also taints the integrity of Spider-Man as a symbol of hope and unity.

    Spider-Man is more than just another superhero; he represents every underdog who strives against all odds. It is crucial that we have an actor who embodies this spirit both on-screen and off-screen. Unfortunately, Tom Holland's personal beliefs hinder his ability to genuinely connect with audiences worldwide.

    Spider-Man has amassed millions of fans globally over decades because he transcends boundaries and unites people through his stories. However, by allowing someone like Tom Holland to continue portraying this iconic character with his divisive views intact, we risk alienating fans who hold different political perspectives or those who simply seek escapism without political bias.

    There are numerous talented actors out there who possess both acting prowess and align better with the core values that define Spider-Man's character – someone capable of capturing Peter Parker's vulnerability while embodying his unwavering determination. By recasting the role, we can ensure that Spider-Man remains a beacon of hope and inspiration for generations to come.

    It is time to take action and demand a change in casting for the Spider-Man franchise. We deserve an actor who embodies the true essence of this beloved character, someone who can unite fans worldwide through their portrayal. Let us stand together and urge the studio executives to reconsider Tom Holland's position as Spider-Man, ensuring authenticity prevails over personal biases.

    1. Tom Holland is a Brit, not American.

    2. Actors are either commies or perverts, so you can either have an anti-American Trump hater or a child molester portraying Spider-man. I would settle for what we have.

    Didn't Tom Holland semi-retire from acting or declare himself on hiatus or something a few months back?

    No one has ever done more justice to the role than Holland, and his off-camera politics don't matter. Plus, anyone who cares about democracy at this point hates Trump.

    Part of it was the acting and part of it was the acting, but we never got the REAL Spider-Man on the big screen until we got Holland. The wisecracking is core to the character, and none of the previous films really got us there except for a couple of lines from Garfield. Holland embodied it in the role.

    Fact is unless he comes out in favor of Trump he is a poser and a terrorist imposter of an AMERICAN SUPER HERO!

    Spider-man in the comics is canon as being a WASP! Trump is beloved by WASPs. Trump is the real life super hero and if Holland doesn't support him publicly than he is supporting the deep state.

    Tom Holland has not come out in support of Israel either.
