Tom Holland To Play Spider-Man In Marvel's New Film

Tom Holland has just scored the character of Peter Parker/Spider-Man in the highly anticipated Marvel film.

Tom Rothman, Sony Pictures Motion Pictures Group Chairman, shared in a statement: "It's a big day here at Sony. Kevin, Amy and their teams have done an incredible job. The Marvel process is very thorough, and that's why their results are so outstanding. I'm confident Spider-Man will be no exception. I've worked with a number of up-and-coming directors who have gone on to be superstars and believe that Jon is just such an outstanding talent. For Spidey himself, we saw many terrific young actors, but Tom's screen tests were special. All in all, we are off to a roaring start."

Sony's Amy Pascal was quoted as saying: "Sony, Marvel, Kevin and I all knew that for Peter Parker, we had to find a vibrant, talented young actor capable of embodying one of the most well-known characters in the world. With Tom, we've found the perfect actor to bring Spider-Man's story into the Marvel Cinematic Universe."

Holland, 19, shared his impressive Spider-Man like stunts on his Instagram account over the weekend.

The movie, which will be directed by Jon Watts, is set to open in theaters on July 28, 2017. 

Tom has also appeared in the 2012 film "The Impossible". He has also made appearances in the TV show "Wolf Hall".
