Spider-Man: Homecoming will feature the first version of the wall crawler to exist in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, with Tom Holland reprising the role after debuting in Captain America: Civil War. While Holland may hail from England, the young actor has evidently mastered his American accent as a number of fans are still surprised once they hear him speaking with an English accent. During an interview with BBC Radio 1Holland did reveal one scene from the film that had to be recut when he accidentally let his English accent slip.

Holland revealed that somehow the slip had gone unnoticed until the footage was reviewed:

“There is one scene, I guess Ricky [his dialect coach] just wasn’t there that day, where I went full English and for some reason no one picked up on it. And we we’re watching the movie, like going through it, like picking stuff out that we had to change and re-record. And I walk into this, like, sandwich shop, and I’m like,’Hello, mate, you alright?”

Holland explained how the filmmakers managed to get around the accidental error:

“They had to, like, cut it so you don’t see my face as I say ‘hello’ […]. So we had to change that scene cause my accent was just pure English.”

A young Peter Parker/Spider-Man (Tom Holland), who made his sensational debut in Captain America: Civil War, begins to navigate his newfound identity as the web-slinging super hero in Spider-Man: Homecoming. Thrilled by his experience with the Avengers, Peter returns home, where he lives with his Aunt May (Marisa Tomei), under the watchful eye of his new mentor Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.). Peter tries to fall back into his normal daily routine – distracted by thoughts of proving himself to be more than just your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man – but when the Vulture (Michael Keaton) emerges as a new villain, everything that Peter holds most important will be threatened.

Directed by Jon Watts, the film stars Tom Holland, Michael Keaton, Zendaya, Donald Glover, Jacob Batalon, Laura Harrier, Tony Revolori, Tyne Daly, Bokeem Woodbine, Michael Chernus, Kenneth Choi, Hannibal Buress, Martin Starr, Michael Barbieri, Angourie Rice, Abraham Attah, Marisa Tomei and Robert Downey Jr.
