Marvel has indicated that Spider-Man’s fights in Spider-Man: Homecoming are usually choreographed in a way where our hero doesn’t actually punch anyone, but that didn’t stop Tom Holland from literally being hit with a case of “Parker Luck” while the movie was being filmed.
In an interview with British GQ, Tom Holland revealed that a stuntman accidentally punched him in the face. The accident happened as a result of Holland’s field of vision being limited by his mask:
“I was supposed to dodge it and I just didn’t see it coming. He cracked me in the head. He had this massive gauntlet in his hand, a big metal fist type thing, and he punched me in the face so hard, like you wouldn’t believe. But it looks great! I hope they use it. It’s one of those things where you stand up and you’re angry, like, ‘What the hell, man? You punched me in the head!’ Then you realize it’s entirely your fault.”
From the sound of things, this incident may have happened during Spider-Man’s fight with the Shocker, a supporting antagonist in the movie. Shocker makes use of gauntlets that cause strong enough vibrations in the air that it can force objects in its trajectory to be pushed away, even if the gauntlets don’t directly touch them. Thankfully, that’s not the case in real life, but still – that’s gotta hurt. Thankfully, Holland wasn’t seriously injured and filming was able to be completed as originally planned.
Spider-Man: Homecoming swings into theaters on July 7, 2017. The film features a cast that includes Tom Holland as Peter Parker (Spider-Man), Robert Downey Junior as Tony Stark (Iron Man), Zendaya Coleman as Michelle, Jacob Batalon as Ned Leeds, Tony Revolori as “Flash” Thompson, Laura Harrier as Liz Allan, Marisa Tomei as May Parker, Jon Favreau as Harold “Happy” Hogan, Michael Keaton as Adrian Toomes (Vulture), Bokeem Woodbine as Herman Schultz (Shocker), and Michael Chernus as Phineas Mason (Tinkerer). Donald Glover and Tyne Daly are also part of the cast in unspecified roles. A sequel is planned for release on July 5, 2019.

New ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ Posters Feature Iron Man And New York
We are now two months away from the release of the highly-anticipated new Marvel and Sony production, Spider-Man: Homecoming. It’s so exciting that Spider-Man is now officially part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and given Tom Holland’s incredible debut in Captain America: Civil War last year, Spider-Man: Homecoming has the potential to be a great new take on the webhead, exploring his high school roots further than previous incarnations.
Five brand new posters have been released for Spider-Man: Homecoming. Each of these new posters feature Spidey in various poses around New York.
One of the posters features him alongside Iron Man. The father/son-esque dynamic between Peter Parker and Tony Stark was first teased in Civil War, and based on the trailers for Spider-Man: Homecoming, it continues to expand given Stark’s growing concern for the Avenger-to-be.
The MTV Movie & TV Awards will air an exclusive sneak peek for the upcoming film tonight at 8/7c.

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