Stan Lee is a Big Fan of Tom Holland's Spider-Man
Despite the plethora of big names assembled for Captain America: Civil War, it was Tom Holland's appearance as Peter Parker/Spider-Man that stole many of the headlines. Spider-Man is arguably the biggest name in all of Marvel, but Holland is now the third actor to take on the role in the last 14 years and some have questioned if there's a real desire for more. After Toby Maguire and Andrew Garfield both had their detractors during their respective stint as the web-slinger, Marvel's task of doing something different (and successful) with the character seemed like a tall one. Thankfully, both the MCU and Tom Holland appear to have passed their first test. However, it's one thing to ace a cameo, and quite another to create a top-drawer Spider-Man solo movie.



With Spider-Man: Homecoming out next year, we're finally going to learn what the MCU has in store for the new Peter Parker. So far, Tom Holland as brought all the athleticism and charm one expects from a great Peter Parker, and he'll need to keep that going if Homecoming can match the lofty expectations fans and critics have set. If Holland was, in any way, struggling with that weight of expectation, he'll be feeling slightly better after hearing what the creator of the character had to say about his work so far. 

Stan Lee was on-stage at Denver Comic Con this weekend, and when he was asked how he felt about the latest actor to take up the Spider-Man mantle, he was remarkably positive.

Opening quote
"Oh, he's wonderful, I was with him the other day. He's great. I can't believe it. It's as if we created a living being to be Spider-Man and it turned out to be Tom. Really!"
Closing quote

There you have it. Tom Holland's Spider-Man is 100% Stan Lee approved.
