Tom Holland Discusses His ‘Spider-Man’ Research; Comments On That Haircut Instagram Post

Actor Tom Holland is currently doing the rounds promoting his latest film In The Heart Of The Sea and that of course means he’s going to get a good numer of questions about a little role that he has in the Marel Cinematic Universe. While speaking with Collider, Holland revealed that while he’s a self-proclaimed Spider-Man fan, he didn’t know too much about the character until he sat down to do research for the role. 

There’s lots of things I didn’t know about him. I mean, there’s so many different versions of his story, and my favorite of which at the moment is the Ultimate Spider-Man. And the one thing I’m really excited about is that he’s not a superhero that’s on his own, you know? He has connections with some of the most powerful people in this Marvel Universe so I’m quite excited to explore that and see if Marvel will go down that route, you know? Which I’m sure they will. I mean, if they’ve got all these incredible characters at hand, I mean, why not use them, you know?

Not long ago, Holland posted an image on Instagram that featured the actor sporting a hairstyle similar to that of the Ultimate Peter Parker. Some assumed that this might be a hint about the character’s look in the upcoming film. Well, it seems that they assumed wrong and this was just Holland taking a selfie. The actor commented on the internet’s reaction to the image. 

But you know what? That was so innocent though! I did not know that I was doing that. Afterwards I was kind of like, ‘Yeah, that is kind of Spider-Man hair.’ I’d just watched Edward Scissorhands again and I sort of looked up Johnny Depp, I was like, ‘Oh, he’s so cool. I’m gonna try to copy his hairstyle,’ and everyone went crazy saying I looked like Peter Parker, which I guess is a good thing. But that is not my hairstyle right now.

So, looks like you guys don’t actually know what kind of haircut Peter Parker is going to be rocking in the currently untitled Spider-Man film. Sorry to disappoint? Cue the J. Jonah Jameson memes! Let us know your thoughts on Holland’s comments in the section below.
