New “Spider-Man” star Tom Holland said in an interview how his portrayal differs from that of the past two actors who played the role—Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire.
In an interview with HeyUGuys, as reported by Screen Rant, the actor said that he had a hard time trying not to follow what the actors did in their role. However, he underscored his strength in making Peter Parker as a kid.
“It was very difficult to not obviously copy what Andrew [Garfield] and Tobey [Maguire] had done, because what they did was brilliant,” he said. “But I think our main difference is trying to make Peter feel like a kid. And in the film, you see a kid reacting to meeting the Avengers for the first time.”
Spider-Man has a cameo role in “Captain America: Civil War,” but reports suggest that this can launch Tom Holland as the one who will take on the role, as well as introduce his upcoming debut in “Spider-Man: Homecoming,” Cinema Blend said.
In one of his scenes, Spider-Man and Iron Man exchange a conversation where the wall-crawler expressed his awe in meeting the Avenger.
The 19-year-old actor also related that his scenes with Robert Downey Jr. have guided him in his new role. He described the “Iron Man” star as a “warm and easygoing” person.
Spider-Man also had a scene with Captain America where he said he is a big fan of the loyal soldier.
Before clinching the role of Spider-Man, Tom Holland appeared in “The Impossible” and “In the Heart of the Sea.”
