Tom Holland Talks Inspiration From Previous Spider-Man Films. With a new Spider-Man being introduced in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, everyone wants to know what influences will help shape this version. According to Tom Holland, it may come from the preceding films.
Talking with Hey U Guys, the British actor was asked if any of the previous films would have an influece on his take of the webslinger, in which he said:
I think it’s impossible not to, they were so great and such real and rich performances and there’s obviously factors I love and I will continue to try and recreate, but I think the most important thing at the moment is making a film which is obviously of the same character but make it a new and exciting movie.
Tom Holland also touched upon the injury he sustained while filming Captain America: Civil War:
It was my own mistake. I basically fell over and bashed my face in front of about two hundred crew members, so not my most heroic moment! It was luckily just before my last shot; they were like, ‘Roll cameras!’, I was getting into position, everything went wrong, and they still did the take anyway. It looks great and they’ll probably just CGI out all the blood, and yeah, I was very lucky.
Holland will make his MCU appearance as Spider-Man in 2016’s Captain America: Civil War. Directed by Jon Watts, the new Spider-Man solo film arrives in theaters July 28, 2016.
