Tom Holland Comments On Spider-Man’s Position In The MCU; Reveals Solo Film Shoot Locations

Currently, fans are anxiously awaiting their first look at the new Spider-Man, who will be played by Tom Holland, from the upcoming Captain America: Civil War. If that trailer and what I’m hearing is any indication though, Marvel Studios is going to be keeping the character mostly under wraps until the film hits theaters. However, that doesn’t mean we can’t learn a little about the new incarnation of the character straight from Holland’s mouth. While speaking with SuperHeroHype, the actor commented on the role and his own personal connection with the wallcrawler.

I have always been a huge fan of Spider-Man, and growing up, I had countless Spider-Man costumes, only two years ago did I go to a fancy dress party dressed as Spider-Man. I had this awesome morph suit where you can put your phone on your chest and spiders would crawl across the costume, it was awesome! He’s always been a big part of my life and a big part of boys’ lives because everybody can relate to him.

One of the biggest differences right now between the MCU and the comics that inspire these films is the topic of secret identities. Minus a few characters here and there, such as Daredevil & Ant-Man, there are virtually no secret identities. This puts the few characters that do have secret identities in a unique position and Holland will be joining that small group next year. Holland comment on the subject and Peter Parker’s different position in the Marvel Cinematic Universe in comparison to a majority of it’s characters.

I think one of the most interesting things about Peter Parker for us is that he’s the only person in the MCU now that has a secret identity, so we all know who everyone else is. I think it’s quite interesting to go back to that hiding behind a mask.

So, how about that upcoming solo film directed by Jon Watts? Well, Holland revealed that next year the film will shoot in Atlanta “because they have studios there and I think it’s cheaper to build a New York set than it is to shoot here, because it’s going to be very expensive. We probably will end up here (in New York) for one week or two.” Let us know your thoughts on Holland’s comments in the section below.

The currently untitled Marvel & Sony Spider-Man film is set to hit theaters July 28, 2017.
