Someone made a new deepfake video with Detroit: Become Human from Quantic Dream, and it’s an unusual one. Instead of Bryan Dechart as android Connor, the creator of the video showed Marvel’s Spider-Man Tom Holland in the lead role.
French developer Quantic Dream is known for tendency to bring Hollywood stars into its projects, like Elliot Page and Willem Dafoe in Beyond: Two Souls or Lance Henriksen in Detroit: Become Human. And now someone decides to go even further, adding to Detroit’s already solid cast one more modern star.
In a recent YouTube video, no one other than Tom Holland appeared in Detroit: Become Human as Connor, one of the key game characters and probably the most beloved among the fans. Thanks to deepfake technologies, Holland appeared in different game episodes, looking pretty authentic as a RK800 android of CyberLife corporation. Despite some awkward scenes where the mask comes off the original character’s face, the video did a pretty good job to convince the audience Holland could be a great choice for Connor in Detroit.
Fans were quick to agree this project would be another great Tom Holland movie if this ever happened. Some even said they can’t tell the difference between the two characters at first. Viewers also pointed out Detroit: Become Human’s Connor had a very strong resemblance to Ansel Elgort, who you can recall in Baby Driver or The Divergent Series.
Tom Holland’s most recent projects include Chaos Walking, Cherry, and The Devil All the Time. He will be also reprising his role as Parker in Spider-Man: No Way Home, scheduled for release on December 17. It is yet unknown if Holland will play red-blue wall-crawler again after that, but many fans are counting to see Holland in tandem with Tom Hardy in the Venom franchise one day.
Similar deepfake videos are very common these days. For example, soon after the announcement about Pedro Pascal and Bella Ramsey playing Joel and Ellie respectively in The Last of Us adaptation from HBO, someone quickly used deepfake technologies to show how the actors will look in the new TV series.
