Tom Holland is dreaming big. The star of the highly anticipated "Spider-Man: Homecoming," which hits theaters this July, is breaking the mold set by previous young stars and dreams of following in the footsteps of Leonardo DiCaprio, Meryl Streep, and Jake Gyllenhaal.

The 21-year old, whose major breakout role as Peter Parker in Marvel and Sony's joint venture coming next month, stars in the film alongside Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man, and Academy Award-winning "Batman"/"Batman Returns" star Michael Keaton as Vulture.

Holland's Spider-Man was first introduced in last year's "Captain America: Civil War," which had him fighting alongside Tony Stark.

In this summer's outing, he will again have the help of Stark as he battles not just petty criminals, but a big bad trader who is on the rise in the criminal underworld.

Young actor dreams of winning an Academy Award

In a recent Interview Magazine in which Tom Holland was interviewed by "Spider-Man: Homecoming" co-star Zendaya, the young actor revealed what he wanted to do with his career. At 21 years old, Holland has quite lofty dreams for his acting career.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Holland dreams of winning an Academy Award or better known as an Oscar, in 15 years. Leonardo DiCaprio, 42, was nominated six times and finally won his first Academy Award last year for "The Revenant."

Meryl Streep has been nominated 20 times and has won three times. These are not at all bad role models to look up to, and Holland said that "As far as my future goes, I want to stretch myself as an actor" the way both DiCaprio and Streep did.

Holland wants to play Bond eventually

One of the iconic roles "Spider-Man: Homecoming" star Tom Holland wants to play in the future is James Bond, a role that's currently been linked to the likes of Tom Hardy, Tom Hiddleston, and Michael Fassbender, among others.

For a young actor like Holland who is just about to launch into superstardom, it seems that he's eager to get out of the Peter Parker role, which he's set to play for another film following this July's outing.

Holland said that he's always on the lookout for different types of characters, as he's fully aware how one can be stereotyped into a specific character "when you take on a superhero movie." But all of these are just baby steps, as, in 20 years, he also aspires to become a director, and like Leonardo DiCaprio, become a prolific filmmaker who is proficient both on screen and behind the camera. "Spider-Man: Homecoming" arrives on July 7.
