Tom Holland Helped Inspire ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ Poster

One of the first posters for Spider-Man: Homecoming depicts Peter Parker (Tom Holland) in the suit Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) designed for him. We see Peter lying down with his yellow academic decathalon coat on and a pair of headphones on his ears with the New York City skyline in the background.

As it turns out, Tom Holland is actually asleep in this poster. While promoting the Sony film internationally, Holland told the story of how the final poster design was brought into fruition:

“Interesting story about that poster is that is actually me asleep. That’s not part of the movie, that’s me in-between takes asleep. We were shooting this scene and I was just really tired that day, and I was just asleep on the floor, and the photographer took a picture. So when they made that the poster, I was like ‘What! What the hell, guys!’”

Spider-Man: Homecoming accurately adapted Peter’s busy life. High school already adds quite a bit of pressure whether it is through one’s academic performance, future ambitions and social life – imagine being a superhero at the same time.

The design of this particular poster perfectly captures the nature of the Tom Holland film. Even when Spidey has his moment to sit back and relax, duty eventually calls him into the action as well as his priorities as a high school student.

Here is the synopsis for Tom Holland’s Spider-Man: Homecoming. 

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.

Spider-Man: Homecoming is in theaters now. Stay tuned for the latest news regarding Tom Holland and the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe!
