Tom Holland, Our New Spider-Man, Shows Us He Does Everything a Spider Can

If I remember right, the story goes that Tobey Maguire landed the role of Spider-Man (in part) because he was covertly ripped. That’s all well and good, but Spider-Man’s got more than just strength up his sleeves, and Tom Holland’s acrobatic skills might be part of a similar story for the reboot.

Even before news broke that he had officially landed the part of the wall-crawler, Holland enjoyed taunting casting speculators on Instagram with seemingly Spidey-related gymnastics. Now that we know he’s got the role, it’s even more exciting to see him do everything a spider can and wonder what kind of real live stunts we’ll get to see in the new Spider-Man movies.

“BUT DAN, spiders don’t actually do backflips!” you say?


Don’t let this one hear you, I guess.

Dan is many things, including a game developer, animator, martial artist, and at least semi-professional pancake chef. He lives in North Carolina with Lisa Brown (his wife) and Liz Lemon (his dog), both of whom are the best, and he will never stop reminding The Last Jedi's detractors that Luke Skywalker's pivotal moment in Return of the Jedi was literally throwing his lightsaber away and refusing to fight.
