Why Tom Holland Is the Best Movie Spider-Man

Spider-Man has had quite the journey before ending up with Tom Holland.

For someone who was just a kid myself when the first Spider-Man movie came out, I grew up longing to see a Peter Parker that wasn't an adult man pretending to be in high school, and then college.

While Sony's still floundering to get a Spider-Man extended universe going in live action (hi, Venom!) after a massive false start with Amazing Spider-Man 2's attempted "Sinister Six" setup, they seem to be well on their way in the animation department.
