We're Kind of Obsessed with the New Spider-Man
One of the many things we loved about the superhero showdown Captain America: Civil War was the introduction of a new Spider-ling... er, we mean Spider-Man! Tom Holland, whom you might remember as the eldest brother in The Impossible, suits up as the latest reincarnation of the web slinger. While at first it seemed too soon for a new Spider-Man after Andrew Garfield's turn, we were quickly charmed by Tom's web-slinging skills, endearingly nervous energy, and earnest enthusiasm. His fanboy Spidey is, well, us if we ever get the chance to meet the Avengers. Too bad Tom left as quickly as he entered the picture, but hey, that's what Instagram stalking is for! Here are a few things we learned from our "research."
He was born to be Spider-Man. Look at his little baby costume! So cute.
The force is strong with this one. Here he is taking a pic with Mark Hamill a.k.a. Luke Skywalker from Star Wars, as one totally should if one ever gets the opportunity.
He's a cute little awkward turtle. He captioned this BTS from the red carpet: "Smile and wave, just smile and wave." Aww, he must have been so nervous!
He can fly! We've lost count of how many times we've watched this in slow-mo.
Thor's hammer has deemed him worthy of its power. Here's Tom "borrowing" it for the afternoon. Fun fact: Tom and Chris Hemsworth have become buddies after filming the movie In the Heart of the Sea!
He cleans up well. Doesn't he look so dapper here?
Carly Rae is his jam. Gotta love a guy who’s so game to dance to "Call Me Maybe."
He FaceTimes with his dog, which obviously means he's an awesome human being.
