The biggest moment in not only the MCU but possibly all of cinema this year was Marvel and Sony putting aside their differences and agreeing to share the rights to Spider-Man. This is not only great news for fans of the character, but also the character itself as now he may finally be portrayed in a perfect way through multiple appearances.
Once the rights were being shared, Marvel and Sony began the long process of finding the right man for the role. After countless rumors, front-runners, and short-lists, they decided that Tom Holland was their guy.
Holland will make his first appearance as Spider-Man in Captain America: Civil War, before starring in his own solo movie in 2017. He finished filming his role in Civil War earlier this year, and has since had a supporting role in In The Heart Of The Sea alongside Chris Hemsworth.
While out promoting the film, he spoke with Belfast Telegraph about his experience on Captain America: Civil War.
Civil War will be a brilliant movie, a huge movie and I’ll have the support of the success of that movie so that I can go on to my own. It was also a real eye-opener to what it will be like when I start my film. I think the problem with Civil War for me was that it made me 10 times more excited to start on Spider-Man, but we don’t start for months so I’ve got to sit on that excitement for the moment.
While we await the big screen debut of Holland as the MCU version of Spider-Man, we can only hope to get an official title and further supporting roles cast in the meantime.
Captain America: Civil War is scheduled to hit theaters May 6, 2016.
