‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’: Tom Holland Shares Michael Keaton’s Advice

Spider-Man Homecoming-Still-2
Spider-Man: Homecoming will be the title character’s first solo film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and will pit the wall crawler against The Vulture. Playing the lead villain will be Michael Keaton, former Batman star, who came to respect young Tom Holland during their time filming to project together. In an interview with The Wrap at WonderCon 2017, Tom Holland explained how he earned a compliment from his co-star for his on-set dedication.

Holland explained how his insistence on making the action sequences as realistic as possible, even though it may cause shooting delays, earned him Keaton’s respect.

“I really stuck by my guns … and eventually they went with what I said. Michael took me aside and said, ‘Look, that’s what I did in Batman. I always tried to make sure that what I was doing made sense, and that I could possibly happen.”

Holland explained the reason he wanted the action scenes to be realistic.

“My big thing was always trying to ground Peter’s powers in reality, which meant never putting him in a situation he can easily escape from. And that choice would [often] completely reconfigure the scene that we’d have to do, which would waste two hours in re-rehearsing.”

Tom Holland explains how he took Keaton’s words as both advice and praise.

“So it felt like something I should keep doing, but also a compliment at the same time.”

It certainly sounds as though Holland and Keaton had an excellent working relationship, which should mean that their work will result in a riveting dynamic between Spider-Man and The Vulture.

Spider-Man: Homecoming will be released in theaters on July 6, 2017.
