- “Spider-Man” actor Tony Revolori has said he’s open to reprising his role as the Flash if asked to return.
- In December, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige confirmed that the fourth film was in the works.
- Revolori said he’d like to explore Flash more and “see who’s behind the cell phone.”
“Spider-Man” star Tony Revolori isn’t sure if his Flash Thompson character will be part of the future of the franchise, but he’s open to reprising the role.
“I would love to revisit the character,” Revolori told Insider in a new interview. “He’s someone I love. Being a brown man, it’s important to play that role. I had a great time doing it and I’d like to keep doing it if they’d have me.”
Revolori debuted as the Flash, a rich kid and high school bully to Peter Parker (played by Tom Holland) in Jon Watts’ 2017 Spidey reboot Spider-Man: Homecoming.
The ‘Big Budapest’ actor reprized his role for the 2019 sequel, ‘Spider-Man: Far From Home,’ which followed the titular teenage web-slinger on a road trip through Europe.
Throughout the film, Flash kept his social media followers, also known as the Flash Mob, updated on the adventures through live streams and videos. But there were also brief scenes that hinted at Flash having a strained relationship with his parents.
Revolori returned as the Flash in the third film, “Spider-Man: No Way Home” (2021), which became known right after the world found out that Peter is Spider-Man at the end of “Far From Home”.
In an attempt to boost his popularity, Flash claimed to be best friends with Peter and released a memoir titled “Flashpoint”, about their “inspiring friendship”.
In December, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige confirmed to The New York Times that the fourth “Spider-Man” movie is in the works.
Five months later, Sony president Tom Rothman told Deadline that he was optimistic the studio would begin work on the film soon, hopefully with Watts, Holland and Zendaya returning.
No additional details about the plot or the cast and crew have been revealed since then, but Revolori would be interested in delving into his character, especially considering the Flash’s continued adventures in the Marvel comics.
“I would like to push the character to further new depth,” he told Insider.
“I hope they ask me back, and if they do, hopefully we can also explore Flash a little more and see who’s behind the mobile.”
