Heart of the Sea actor Tom Holland is looking forward to Captain America: Civil War. Holland had acknowledged and expressed the “brilliance” of this movie. Of course, the Marvel Cinematic Universe has had quite the success since it launched with Iron Man starring Robert Downey Jr. in 2008. So far, the likes of Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield had portrayed their web-slinging renditions, and now Holland is up to bat in the movie.
It will be some time before Holland makes his debut on the big screen via Marvel Studios, but when he does, he said he wants to remain humble, considering his popularity will likely skyrocket, according to Heroic Hollywood. Although he explains he’s started to upgrade his wardrobe a bit and is willing to do blockbuster movies like those in the Marvel universe, Tom Holland still wants to be in touch with indie films.
“My main goal at the moment is to make sure my work doesn’t fall below a certain caliber. I want to make sure that yes, I’ll do these big blockbuster movies but I want to continue on with the small, independent movies and make sure I don’t lose touch with that side of the industry.”
Tom Holland, in contrast with Robert Downey Jr., is being introduced into the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the middle, whereas with Downey Jr., the Iron Man star had to first familiarize himself with his character as the stepping stones into the world of comic book movies. With Holland, he’ll have his time to shine come the next Spider-Man reboot, directed by Jon Watts and scribed by John Francis Daley and Jonathan M. Goldstein. This would allow for an established Tom, as he becomes familiar with the web-slinging role, according to Screen Rant.
Furthermore, Holland was tweeted by co-CEO of Marvel Studios’ Louis D’Esposito as being on the set of Doctor Strange, but there’s no indication of the Tom’s involvement as teased by Twitter. If indeed Holland does make another appearance with Stephen Strange, this would even allow him to further establish a handhold in the Marvel Cinematic Universe prior to the 2017 Spider-Man reboot, starring Marisa Tomei as Aunt May.
Also, Sony Pictures is letting Marvel Studios use Spider-Man, but it was reported via the Inquisitr that Sony needed to screen it for clearance. The point of the executives at Sony is to “sign-off” on the character. Of course, this makes sense, as this is just probably standard operating procedure.
It also looks like Tom Holland may be donning the classic Spider-Man symbol on his costume, per Cinema Blend, and the site reports that he may have a larger presence in Captain America: Civil War than once thought. Two costumes in question that are rumored is one designed by Peter Parker and the other by Tony Stark.
In comic book lore, the Iron Spider-Man costume was indeed designed by Stark, per Wikia, and the appearance of said suit was inspired by the Mark series of Iron Man outfits. In addition, the Iron Spider-Man suit also had its role in the Marvel Civil War storyline in the comic books, so could it be possible Tom Holland would be doing the same?
It’s also reported that Holland’s Spider-Man character would be joining Ant-Man near the end of Captain America: Civil War as a form of comedy relief after a rather darker situation, considering the challenge of relationships between parties when it comes to newly formed differences of opinions between Steve Rogers and Tony Stark, according to Inquisitr.
Again, Tom Holland is excited about Captain America: Civil War, which stars a plethora of old characters and introducing new ones like Chadwick Boseman’s Black Panther. The film comes alive on the big screen on May 6, 2016.
