While Tom Holland is currently busy shooting Uncharted movie, where he depicts Nathan Drake, it seems he might get a new offer from Netflix for playing as Link in the rumored adaptation of The Legend of Zelda.

Reported by We Got This Covered, the website claims that some sources have informed them that Netflix wants Tom Holland to play as Link in their unannounced The Legend of Zelda depiction. Regarding the fact that the exisitence of such a movie or series itself needs an official confirmation, we strongly suggest you to take it with a grain of salt. That being said, Tom Holland wouldn’t be an unfavorable choice at all.

After Marvel Studios took the helm for developing a new set of Spider-Man movies, Tom Holland has been chosen to portray Peter Parker, a.k.a. Spider-Man. The reception of fans and media for his depiction of Spider-Man have mostly been positive so far, which proves his talent for portraying extra-ordianray protagonists.

Holland isn’t unfamiliar with video game adaptations as he is currently working with the team behind Uncharted movie, where he is going to play as Nathan Drake, one of Sony’s most beloved characters over the past and present generation of consoles. Of course, we still need to wait a lot to finally see how he looks in the shoes of Nathan Drake, but with no doubt, it could be a valuable experience for him to have a role in the future gaming adaptations in cinema.

Tom Holland’s latest movie, The Devil All the Time, is currently out on Netflix. Despite some mediocre reviews from the media, those who have watched the movie seemingly liked it, based on the movie’s user score on Metacritic.
