Tom Holland (Peter Parker/Spider-Man) is following in the footsteps of many superheroes before him, by bringing joy and happiness to those in need. The actor recently visited a children’s hospital and posted a video of the interaction on his official Instagram page. The video is heartwarming and emotional. Here’s the post.
“Happy new year everyone and especially to all the little legends we met that day. We’ll see you soon Let’s go 2017!! #spidermanhomecoming,” wrote Holland on Instagram.
Holland isn’t the first Marvel star to visit hospitals, as Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans and Chris Pratt have all dressed up in character to bring extra joy to those in need. Robert Downey Jr. even joined forces with #CollectiveProject to present a special child with a brand new bionic 3D printed arm.
2017 is shaping up to be a massive year for Holland with the release of Spider-Man: Homecoming. You can watch the first trailer for the movie below.
“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 cast includes 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.
Spider-Man: Homecoming opens on July 7, 2017.
