During a recent sit down with Superhero Hype, Tom Holland talked about his portrayal of Spider-Man in Captain America: Civil War.
On being a fan of Spidey: “I have always been a huge fan of Spider-Man, and growing up, I had countless Spider-Man costumes. Only two years ago did I go to a fancy dress party dressed as Spider-Man. I had this awesome morph suit where you can put your phone on your chest and spiders would crawl across the costume, it was awesome! He’s always been a big part of my life and a big part of boys’ lives because everybody can relate to him.”
The difference between Spider-Man and other MCU characters: “I think one of the most interesting things about Peter Parker for us is that he’s the only person in the MCU now that has a secret identity, so we all know who everyone else is. I think it’s quite interesting to go back to that hiding behind a mask.”
Working with the cast: “I guess they’re such easy people. They’re lovely people and Robert did my first screen test and he was so welcoming. He took me aside and gave me a little advice about the audition. Like with Ron (Howard), I just felt at ease with him, ‘cause he’s just a down to earth easy-going guy, and I can’t wait to get to work with them more. I’m really excited to get to work and be a part of that universe.”
On the planned Spider-Man movie: “We’re shooting in Atlanta for most of it, because they have studios there and I think it’s cheaper to build a New York set than it is to shoot here, because it’s going to be very expensive. We probably will end up here (in New York) for one week or two.”
