Tom Holland as Nathan Drake.

WTF?  Spider-Man has been tapped to play the title character in a prequel-to-the-game movie.

After years pressure from fans (and the actor himself), we apparently will not get the Nathan Fillion casted Nathan Drake we all hoped for.  Fillion wanted to play the part so badly that he starred in a fan film.

As much as I like Tom Holland as Spidey, I just don't see him as Nathan Drake.....^why can't we have that instead?

Hasn't this been known for a while now?

I think they first announced it on May 22 but the news slipped under the radar (no topic here about it for instance).  Today's announcement was about the December 2020 release date but it also caught major attention regarding Holland this time.

Tom Holland doesn't have the look ( too small ), and is, IMO also too young for the role. Even his voice feels wrong for the part. Not a good choice. And yes I'm thinking Nathan Fillion would have been a better choice as well. The little guy working Drake over in the fan film is Ernie Reyes Jr. Among other things, he was a Ninja Turtle ( Donatello ) in the original TMNT movie.

I'm thinking further back than that, to last year or something... unless that was all just rumours or something, but it appears they've turned out true if that's the case, lol. 



I mean, Nathan Fillion would have been an amazing Nathan Drake if this movie would have been older Drake but it doesn't work with him playing the young version of him...

Pretty sure they're planning to have it as a prequel to the games, so it'd make sense to pick a younger actor, and just because Nathan Fillion looks like him doesn't really mean he's got the acting chops for the role either, his fan film wasn't bad, but I wouldn't call it good either... he's also not exactly a bankable actor, whereas Tom Holland is known worldwide thank to his role as Spider-Man, so that'll bring in the audience and make mo' monies, lol :P

Actually announced it over two years ago
