The next live action Spider-Man has been cast!
British actor Tom Holland has been selected to be the next Spider-Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Holland is from Kingston and has mostly acted in stage theater. He is best known for his role in “Billy Elliot the Musical” and also on a TV Mini-Series called “Wolf Hall”. Holland is nineteen and the youngest actor to play Peter Parker on screen.
Holland is now the third actor to play Peter Parker and follows in the footsteps of Toby Maguire and Andrew Garfield.
Rumor is, Holland will make his first appearance as Peter Parker/Spider-Man in the upcoming Marvel film Captain America 3: Civil War. Spidey plays a huge role in the comic book event, so it will be very interesting to see how Marvel pulls this off, and whether or not the fans will be accepting of a third Spider-Man reboot. Additionally, Jon Watt’s is slated to direct a solo Spider-Man film in 2017 staring Tom Holland.
