With Uncharted, Spider-Man star Tom Holland has another high profile film under his belt. In this video-game based movie, Tom Holland plays the young adventurer Nathan Drake and to do justice to the role he got really buff.

Uncharted is an action-adventure film based on popular video-game series of the same name. Along with Holland, it stars Mark Wahlberg as Victor Sullivan (Sully), a grizzled veteran treasure hunter, and Antonio Banderas. Instead of attempting to adapt the games, Sony is going to tell an origin story revolving around young Drake and Sully which will serve as a prequel to the games.


Tom Holland has to start shooting for Uncharted before suiting up again as Spider-Man in the Untitled Spider-Man 3. Despite coronavirus cases being on the rise, work behind the video game adaptation is gearing up. Last week, the actor shared his new haircut, and he’s now followed that with a pic of his impressive physique.

Tom Holland’s New Bod

Holland looked pretty ripped, the last time we saw him playing Peter Parker in Spider-man Far From Home but now, the actor looks to have added even more bulk in this undeniably striking and hunky shot.

Tom Holland shared the photo via an Instagram Story and credited his co-star Mark Wahlberg for why he looks this good. He quotes: ” When working with @markwahlberg you gotta get after it”. Seems like there’s some healthy competition between the two, and it appropriately makes sense that Holland is striving to be like the Transformers: Age of Extinction actor when he is playing Drake’s mentor, Sully, in the movie.

It’s accurately true because Wahlberg is a ripped man, so if one wants to costar alongside him as a leading man of the movie, they have to at least look as fit and striking to even try to shine and not get overshadowed by him.

Currently, the live-action take on the video-game franchise is scheduled to be released on July 16th, 2021. Sony decided to bring the release date forward from October to July which was the original release date for Holland’s Spider-Man 3. While Spider-Man 3 was pushed until November 5th, 2021, which was the previous date for the Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.


Meanwhile, even before the arrival of third Spidey installment Tom Holland has multiple films lined up to release. Apart from Uncharted he also has “The Devil All the Time” thriller movie and his team-up movie with Russo brothers named “Cherry” both coming at some point this year and “Chaos Walking” a sci-fi movie releasing in January next year. Tom Holland is definitely a busy star in Hollywood.
