Has Marvel fired Tom Holland from voice-acting for the forthcoming animated series? Marvel Studios’ animated Spider-Man: Freshman Year Disney+ series apparently won’t include Tom Holland as Peter Parker. For the past several years, Marvel Studios and Sony have worked together to bring Spider-Man into the MCU.
As previously reported, Spider-Man: Freshman Year, the upcoming animated series in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, will include a prominent part for the web-slinger. Marvel Studios revealed the series would serve as an in-universe prequel to Tom Holland’s Spider-Man: Homecoming.
Peter Parker’s origin narrative takes place during his freshman year of high school, as suggested by the film’s title, Spider-Man: Freshman Year. The series is intended to provide significant data about MCU’s Spider-Man, but the question of whether Tom Holland will be featured has been a nagging concern.
Tom Holland’s contract with Marvel-Sony for the cinematic rights to Spider-Man in the MCU apparently ended with No Way Home, and no Marvel fan is ready to bid farewell to another live-action Peter Parker.
Spider-Man: The Animated Series is coming to Disney+ Day on November 12, 2021, and Marvel Studios announced it on social media in honor of the occasion.

According to a report from The Illuminerdi, Tom Holland won’t be back for Spider-Man: Freshman Year. Does this mean he is fired? Well, not entirely from the MCU but for this time around, he will not be providing the voice of a young Peter Parker in the upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe cartoon.
Spider-Man’s voice has not yet been cast. No word yet on whether Tom Holland refused to return for the voice-only part or just didn’t get an invitation in the first place.
If Tom Holland is indeed fired or chooses not to return, the voice acting job for Peter Parker might return to Hudson Thames. Consequently, a younger actor might potentially voice the adolescent Spider-Man if Marvel Studios can locate one.
That being said, if Tom Holland isn’t in Spider-Man: Freshman Year, it will be interesting to watch how fans react. Some fans may be frustrated that the Disney+ series does not include Holland’s point of view due to the show’s position as canon inside the main MCU storyline.
New details about Peter Parker’s early life in the MCU, including his relationship with his uncle Ben, may help flesh out this Spider-Man’s backstory Spider-Man: Freshman Year has no set release date, but executive producer Jeff Trammel is penning the script.
