Tom Holland Shows He Doesn't Need Web-Shooters to Soar Like Spider-Man
If you had any doubts that Tom Holland wasn't the right man to play Marvel's Spider-Man, let us direct you towards a new video the actor just posted to his Instagram account. Filmed at a UK gymnasium, Tom Holland shows that he's got all the athletic ability of Spider-Man but without the need to be bitten by a radioactive spider.


Clearly the British actor is taking the acrobatic side of his new role very seriously, and it will be a relief for Spidey fans to see an actor taking this hands-on approach to the character. Much of the time, the acrobatic elements of Spider-Man have been left to stunt doubles, but Holland's training would suggest he'll be carrying out a lot of his own stuntwork. It might also suggest that we'll get to see Spidey in full swing without a his mask on, because why else would Holland need to become so adept at tumbling?

Regardless, it looks like Holland's Spider-Man is going to be able to bring a whole new element to the brawn of the current Avengers team, and for that we should be remarkably thankful.
