While fans were expecting the next web-slinger superhero ‘Spider Man’ to be a dark-complexioned actor (to play Miles Morales), Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios revealed that the nineteen year old British actor Tom Holland would be seen playing Spider Man and his alter ego Peter Parker.
While the previous two re-boots of Spider Man had Peter Parker as a college student, the new series would have Parker as a high-school student. Holland, who was previously seen in movies like ‘The Impossible’ and ‘How I Live Now’, would be taking over from actors Toby Maguire and Andrew Garfield.
On the other hand, Spidey fans are surely in for a treat as he would be finally making an entry into the Marvel Cinematic Universe along with the likes of Iron Man, Thor and Captain America. Holland is expected to make his first entry as Spiderman in summer 2016 with ‘Captain America: Civil War’.
Well, let’s hope Holland lives up to the expectations and the standards raised high by Maguire and Garfield previously.
