Spider-Man's Tom Holland has joked that Marvel turned down a "passionate sex scene" he once suggested.

The actor plays Peter Parker in the MCU, and in a TikTok video posted by Capital in celebration of his recent birthday, Tom can be seen talking to Roman Kemp about his increasing involvement in the franchise behind-the-scenes.

"I mean I was writing scenes, and writing ideas, and coming up with set pieces, and just sending them off to Marvel," Tom said in the clip.

"And a lot of them they were like, 'No dude, that's a terrible idea'.

"But then there were a couple they took and they're in the movie and stuff, so it's a movie that I'm like really, really, involved in, not just as an actor."

Asked about the scene suggestions that weren't included, Tom replied: "I said, 'I think we should have a really passionate sex scene', and they're like, 'No, I don't think so'."
