The 19-year-old British actor revealed such in the UK premiere of “Captain America: Civil War,” where he replaced British-American actor Andrew Garfield for the character.
“I have to say it was a little disappointing, because my stunt double at the time was a little taller than I am, and I had to wear his suit because they didn’t have one for me,” he told Marvel UK in an interview in London’s Westfield. “So it was kind of baggy the first time I tried it on. It wasn’t as cool as I’d hoped.”
However, Spider-Man star Tom Holland was eventually given a fixed suit, which to him, looked “amazing.”
Speaking about his job as the new Spider-Man, Tom Holland told the press that there are no words to describe the feeling he has now.
“To be here and to be surrounded by this wonderful cast is just incredible, and I’m so proud of this movie, and just, everything’s amazing,” he concluded.
“Iron Man” star Robert Downey, meanwhile, congratulated Holland for bagging the Spider-Man role once again for England.
“Spider-Man is English again, congratulations… I’m just going to give it up to the home team and say, England it is again,” the actor said.
Also, at the European premiere were “Captain America: Civil War” cast Chris Evans, Sebastian Stan, Paul Bettany, Anthony Mackie, Paul Rudd, Jeremy Renner, Elizabeth Olsen, Daniel Bruhl and Emily Vancamp.
