After an extensive search, Tom Holland was given the role of Spider-Man, as a result of a deal between Sony and Marvel to share the character amongst their properties. When it came time for Holland to officially put on the suit and become the iconic character, he explained that the moment was slightly less cool than he had imagined.
“Sadly, I have to say it was a little disappointing. My stunt double at the time was a little taller than I am, and I had to wear his suit because they didn’t have one for me! So it was kind of baggy the first time I tried it on, and it wasn’t as cool as I hoped!”
“Once they fixed it up, it looked incredible. It was amazing.”
Holland will be making his debut as Spider-Man in Captain America: Civil War and will be moving on to Spider-Man: Homecoming with Sony and Marvel after. Homecoming will be released on July 7, 2017.
Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” finds Steve Rogers leading the newly formed team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. But after another incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability, headed by a governing body to oversee and direct the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers, resulting in two camps—one led by Steve Rogers and his desire for the Avengers to remain free to defend humanity without government interference, and the other following Tony Stark’s surprising decision to support government oversight and accountability.
