Tom Holland Surprises Kid As Spider-Man; Is Told Batman Is Better


As far as on screen interpretations are concerned, I think it is safe to say, Spider-Man has done quite well. We have never had a Spider-Man film as bad as Batman & Robin, but we have had a film as good as The Dark Knight, in Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 2. Every actor who has portrayed the iconic role has brought something rich, and honest to it. Tobey Maguire captured the boyish charms of the 1960s, while Andrew Garfield owned the angst commonly found in teenagers. Captain America: Civil War introduced us to a new Peter Parker in Tom Holland. Holland, who starred alongside Thor actor Chris Hemsworth in 2015’s In The Heart Of The Sea, was very new to a film of this magnitude. But, boy, did he do well.

In a new video uploaded by Holland’s Spider-Man: Homecoming co-star, Zendaya, the actress showcases a clip of Holland decked out in this Spidey costume as he comforts a child at a hospital. From the short video, you can tell how much Holland loves and cares for this character, and the people who it inspires. Funnily enough, the boy reveals that he actually likes Batman more than Spider-Man, too bad Ben Affleck wasn’t around for that one.

You can check out the cute little clip below on the actress’ Instagram or Twitter:

What do you guys think? Do you love Holland as Spider-Man, or will you be holding out for Homecoming to win you over? Personally, I have adored every interpretation of the character we have seen, from Maguire to Garfield to Holland. I think every version has represented the character I love so very well. But, hey, that is just me.

Spider-Man: Homecoming swings into theatres on July 7, 2017. Until then, you can check out Holland’s Spider-Man in Captain America: Civil War which is on Blu-Ray and DVD now.

    “(…) but we have had a film as good as The Dark Knight, in Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 2. ” Not AS good.

    • Theshadowbat

      I know right. Is like they have to find ways to talk crap. Oh well at least spiderman never had a film like Batman and Robin.

      • Roby D’Ottavi

        Spider-Man 2 is the best superhero film of all time.

          Soooo, anybody can write for HH these days? What’s the criteria?

        • SAMURAI36

          I didn’t know “your opinion” was relevant to what happened in the article you reported about.

          • Roby D’Ottavi

            You know there is no such thing as the best movie ever? It’s an opinion. My opinion of Spider-Man 2 being as good as The Dark Knight is correct, as is your differing one.

            You need to relax, please.

          • SAMURAI36

            I guess I shouldn’t be at all surprised that you missed the point I was making.

            The article you attempted to report on, had nothing to do with movies, per se. The little kid is talking about which superhero he likes more, period. YOU tried to turn it into a “which movie is better” thing. And failed, by the looks of the comments in this article.

            But hey, feel free to make me your scapegoat, if it makes you feel better.

      • SAMURAI36

        Umm, yes they did. It was called Spiderman 3.

        • Axxell

          Nothing in SM3 beats Batnipples….and @ss…lots of @ss.

      lol I know that Spider-man 2 is considered one of the best comic book movies, but I don’t think it gets close to being as good as The Dark Knight.

      • Arthur

        Absolutely. Spider-Man 2 is great and, for me, the best Marvel Comics movie. But The Dark Knight is a masterpiece.


    LMAO at the kid though. He’s so right.

    • Fenix

      You are such a petty little cockroach.

    • Rob

      I never thought Samurai and I could ever agree on anything, but Batman is better than Spider-Man in my book.

      Everyone take cover, the apocalypse is here.
