Tom Holland has been reportedly been selected to play Spider-Man
In a press release -Tom Rothman Sony Pictures Motion Pictures Group chairman was quoted as saying:
“I’ve worked with a number of up-and-coming directors who have gone on to be superstars and believe that Tom is just such an outstanding talent, For Spidey himself, we saw many terrific young actors, but Tom’s screen tests were special. All in all, we are off to a roaring start.”
Kevin Fiege commented:
"As with James Gunn, Joss Whedon, and the Russo brothers, we love finding new and exciting voices to bring these characters to life. We spent a lot of time with Tom and find his take and work inspiring."
Amy Pascal of Sony added!
"Sony, Marvel, Kevin and I all knew that for Peter Parker, we had to find a vibrant, talented young actor capable of embodying one of the most well-known characters in the world. With Tom, we’ve found the perfect actor to bring Spider-Man’s story into the Marvel Cinematic Universe."
Tom himself made some noise last week when he released various videos on Instagram of him doing Spider-Man like stunts. These videos were not necessarily posted as part of a Spider-Man audition but I don't think they hurt him. It actually adds to the possibility of using slightly less CGI on the webslinger and adds a level of believability to the moves he will be doing on screen.
