Tom Holland Talks Spider-Man And Inspiration And Injury

Tom Holland was at the premiere of the Ed Sheeran movie, Jumpers for Goalposts and Holland talked with HeyUGuys about taking inspiration from Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield’s performance of Spider-Man and Peter Parker. Holland also comments on how he got injured on the set of Captain America: Civil War.

“I think it’s impossible not to. They were so great and such real and rich performances. There’s factors that I love and will continue to recreate, but I think the most important thing is making a film which is with the same character, but making it different and a new and exciting movie,” said Holland.

“No, no violence. It was my own mistake. I basically fell over and bashed my face in front of about two hundred crew members, so not my most heroic moment! It was luckily just before my last shot; they were like, ‘Roll cameras!’, I was getting into position, everything went wrong, and they still did the take anyway. It looks great and they’ll probably just CGI out all the blood, and yeah, I was very lucky,” said Holland.

The untitled Spider-Man film will be directed by Jon Watts, John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein are working on the script, starring Holland and Marisa Tomei.

Fans will be introduced to Holland’s Spider-Man in Captain America: Civil War on May 6, 2016. The following year a solo feature will be released July 28, 2017.
