Tom Holland Shares His Best Batman Impression for Spider-Man: Homecoming Audition
Actors pretending to be bad at acting will never cease to be funny to me, which might be why the fake audition skit format lends itself so well for completely absurd silliness (the reason why parts of this SNL skit and Andy Murray the Movie will always put me in the best mood). In a new MTV After Hours, Spider-Man: Homecoming star Tom Holland shares some audition tapes for the film that feature him doing handstands, eating chips, and laying out his best Batman impression. (The Christian Bale one, not Batffleck.)
The basic premise is that Holland has almost zero knowledge of Spider-Man, playing him as over-the-top British, walking in with a handstand for no explicable reason, and even making a dancing entrance (“The musical closed a couple years ago”) reminding us of the actor’s musical theater background. Aw heck yeah, who doesn’t love “Justice Avengers.”
It’s also a ridiculously GIF-able video, so I offer you these humble gif(t)s:
Spider-Man: Homecoming comes out tomorrow, are you excited to see Holland as the teenaged web-slinger?
