British actor Tom Holland, most famous for his role as Peter Parker/Spider-Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) films, including the most recent “Spider-Man: No Way Home,” is already a millionaire at age 25.

Before earning millions and bagging the role of the iconic webslinger in 2016, he appeared in theater acts and landed minor television roles. But not too long, his fanbase grew and so did the offers and paychecks he received. 

Thanks to his successful acting career, Holland has generated an estimated net worth of $18 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth.

The actor was paid a base salary of $250,000 for his first appearance in the MCU in “Captain America: Civil War.” He received double this figure for his first major film, “Spider-Man: Homecoming,” in 2017, where he reportedly earned a $500,000 base salary. 

His total cut from the first “Spider-Man” film, however, was projected to be as much as $1.5 million due to contractual bonuses. It was reported that the film earned over $117 million during its opening weekend, and it went on to gross over $800 million worldwide.

After the release of “Spider-Man: Homecoming,” Holland’s earnings further skyrocketed. For “Avengers: Infinity War,” released in 2018, the actor earned a whopping $3 million. 

At present, his standard base salary for a single film appearance is $4-$5 million.

Holland's paycheck from the second film in the franchise, “Spider-Man: Far From Home,” was not revealed to the public, but the actor likely received a big one because the film made over $1 billion at the box office, becoming the top-grossing “Spider-Man” film so far, according to Forbes.

Sony Pictures, the distributor of the franchise’s third installment, “Spider-Man: No Way Home,” predicts the latest film, which will hit theatres this week, to dominate the box office, with projected domestic ticket sales of $130 million for its first three days, as per CNBC.

Aside from his portrayal of Spider-Man, Holland also appeared in several other non-Marvel projects, including the BBC Two television series "Wolf Hall” in 2015 and Paramount Network's "Lip Sync Battle" in 2017.

The actor also appeared in "Edge of Winter” and "The Lost City of Z” in 2016 and "Pilgrimage” in 2017.
