To bring the interview full circle, Holland revealed that as a child, he always dreamed of becoming Spider-Man. 21-year-old Tom Holland makes the flawless high school student who enjoys being in the suit. Tom Holland is not only good at the role of Spider-Man, he’s equally great in the role of Peter Parker. That came through in his screen test and auditions and translates perfectly to the way Ned Leeds would be excited about finding out that his best friend is Spider-Man.
To celebrate the film’s release, CNBC has looked back at the previous films in the “Spider-Man” franchise using figures from cinema statistics website Box Office Mojo to see what the new film has to live up to. That’s something I know I’m definitely excited to explore.
As Marvel fans well know by now, before getting its act together and creating its own film production company to launch the Cinematic Universe initiative, the comic book company sold off the movie rights to some of its major properties to other Hollywood studios.
However, Feige shared that there is going to be more Peter Parker in the MCU. “Believe me; no one is ready for that movie”, Holland told Toronto Sun.
Sony read the writing stuck to the wall and agreed to a partnership with Marvel that led to Spider-Man’s appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe in last year’s “Captain America: Civil War”. In fact, the love of Spider-Man runs so deep in his family that his younger brother still sleeps in Spider-Man 3 bedsheets.
The movie is coming to theatres tomorrow. A lot of the show goes by with awkward attempts by the hosts to be amusing, but we do get a few interesting details.
In the meantime, catch Holland try to balance regular highschool responsibilities and his superhero activities as Spider-Man in Spider-Man: Homecoming.
“Peter Parker is a character we see [in the comic books] as a 15-year-old boy and then as a 35-year-old man”, Holland recently said. She talked about working with director Jon Watts, the way she likes to work on set, how this is a completely different take on Aunt May, and if she’s already thinking about the sequel.
Homecoming is estimated to have north of a $200 million opening worldwide.
