    Uncharted
    as Holland’s best opportunity for a successful film series outside the MCU.



Tom Holland could break a major record in his career if he returns for Uncharted 2, which is currently in development. Sony’s confirmation of Uncharted 2 officially being a go was announced by executive Steven O’Dell in June 2024. However, no announcements on the return of the cast of the first film have been made. Despite this, these updates on Uncharted 2 are exciting not only for fans of the game and film franchise, but also for the film’s lead.

Uncharted’s ending set up the sequel possibility with ease, allowing Holland’s Nathan Drake to continue his adventures with Sully. In spite of the first Uncharted movie’s problems, the franchise still has a lot of story to tell and is still counted as a strong success for Holland’s career. Holland’s return would add to the franchise and allow it to grow further as well as let him add another high-grossing movie outside the MCU to his repertoire.

Uncharted 2 Could Become Tom Holland’s Highest-Grossing Non-MCU Movie

Uncharted Had A Box Office Of Over $400 Million

If Holland returns for Uncharted 2, it could become his highest-grossing movie as the first film currently holds that spot. Though Holland’s most well-known role is as Spider-Man in the MCU, his top-grossing movie at the box office is Uncharted. The film made $407 million on a $120 million budget, which is impressive considering both the criticism from viewers and its release date in early 2022 during the COVID-19 pandemic. If Uncharted 2’s story is able to learn from the first film’s mistakes, it could have an equally successful box office run, giving Holland a non-MCU franchise to spearhead.


Uncharted 2 Is Still Tom Holland’s Best Chance Of A Non-MCU Franchise

Holland’s Other Franchise Would Not Provide The Same Opportunity

Uncharted 2 is Holland’s best chance at a franchise outside the MCU, as his other franchise film bombed. Chaos Walking, Holland’s other potential film series, gained a poor critics score on Rotten Tomatoes of 21%. Alongside this, the film only earned $27 million at the box office, which barely covered Chaos Walking‘s $100 million budget. Due to this, a continuation of this franchise seems incredibly unlikely and leaves Holland with only Uncharted to contrast his MCU success.

Holland’s other films, such as The Devil All The Time and Cherry, showcase his versatility as an actor. However, these films have completed stories and are unlikely to become franchises. Uncharted, meanwhile, could easily become a large franchise for Holland as it has many directions the story could go. Uncharted 2 could feature Nathan’s brother and the mystery surrounding him, taking pieces from the games while also adding new details. This would allow Uncharted 2 to both become its own title with Holland at the head and honor the original games, which was a large criticism of the first film.
