After making his critically-acclaimed debut as Spider-Man in Captain America: Civil War, Tom Holland is getting ready to roll out his first standalone movie, Spider-Man: Homecoming. It still remains to be seen when the first trailer will be released, but until then, Tom Holland has dropped some interesting details in a new interview. As it turns out, his version of the web-slinger doesn't actually punch anyone.
Spider-Man: Homecoming will bring back Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark, who recruited him to fight for Team Iron Man in Captain America: Civil War. While Spidey did see plenty of action in the massive airport fight scene, he was largely just defending himself with his Spidey skills. During an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, the actor revealed that this trend will continue in Spider-Man: Homecoming, since Peter Parker never throws a punch in this movie.
"You've seen the billionaire, the scientist, the soldier. Now it's time to see the kid. And every decision we make on set is based off how would a kid react in this situation, so every fight scene we have is designed in a way that's almost child-friendly, so he never actually punches anyone. It's all done kind of by accident. I think the biggest difference is his youth and innocence."
Shortly after Captain America: Civil War hit theaters, the first big-screen Spider-Man, Tobey Maguire revealed on social media that Tom Holland is "great as Spider-Man." Tom Holland also revealed in this latest interview that he hasn't actually spoken with either Tobey Maguire or The Amazing Spider-Man star Andrew Garfield, but he has re-watched all of their movies again to prepare for his turn as Spider-Man. Here's what he had to say below.
"I actually haven't been in contact with them. But it's so lucky because I've got five movies that I can draw from. I watched every single one years before I even got cast in this movie. And then we watched them all again and just picked little things that I thought was great and that I'd like to keep."
Earlier today, it was finally confirmed that Michael Keaton is playing the villainous Vulture in this superhero adventure, which is set for release on July 7, 2017. Jon Watts (Cop Car) is directing Spider-Man: Homecoming from a script by John Francis Daley and Jonathan M. Goldstein (Vacation). The supporting cast that includes Marisa Tomei as Aunt May, Zendaya as a character only known as Michelle, Laura Harrier as Liz Allan, Tony Revolori as Flash Thompson, Jacob Batalon as Ned Leeds and Angourie Rice as Betty Brant.
