Tom Holland is no longer associated with Marvel.

Move over, Spider-Man, because there’s a new, fresh, wide-eyed kid slugging it out with the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s weathered veterans, and her name is Kamala Khan (or Ms. Marvel, if you’re being cruel). Peter Parker, step aside. According to Screen Rant, now that the events of Spider-Man: No Way Home have matured Peter Parker, Marvel wants new blood to play the spunky child trying to find their feet in a world full of gods and monsters. This is due to the events of Spider-Man: No Way Home having caused Peter Parker to mature. The character of Kamala, played by Iman Vellani, enters the plot at this point.

Although we do not believe Spider-Man will ever leave the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), his place in the series is no longer what it once was. Despite the fact that we do not believe he will ever leave the MCU. Spider-Man and his alter ego, Tom Holland, were revealed to Marvel fans for the first time in the film Captain America: Civil War. Tom Holland plays Spider-Man, a newcomer to the world of superheroes. During the classic combat scene in the airport in Civil War, Peter Parker didn’t spend nearly as much time fighting. Instead, he spent a lot of time admiring (pardon the pun) everyone else’s incredible abilities and clothing.

Because of the events that occurred over the course of three solo films and two further travels with the Avengers, Peter Parker experienced significant growth. He was no longer the star-struck child he once was after the events of No Way Home, leaving a void in the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s continuity that Kamala Kahn will have to fill.

The young web-slinger served another purpose aside from providing comic relief with his never-ending stream of one-liners: he served as a proxy for the audience. In other words, the young web-slinger represented the audience. The audience members saw the film through the eyes of Peter Parker, who served as a stand-in for themselves in many ways. He believes that this is how an ordinary person would refer to their identities, thus he refers to them as “made-up names” of the Avengers.

Kamala Khan is now in charge of those obligations, and she may be doing an even better job than Peter. True, Peter Parker embodied our nerdy delight in witnessing the Avengers in action, but Kamala takes things a step further. In the Disney Ms. Marvel series, Kamala Khan attends AvengerCon, which is a spoof of real-life ComicCons attended by Marvel fans. In other words, AvengerCon is a mock-up of a real-life Comic-Con.
