Tom Holland was almost not cast as Spider-Man!27 February 2021 ❤ 5
Tom Holland has been the new face of Spider-man since Anthony and Joe Russo directed Captain America: Civil War following this amazing performance Tom Holland landed his own Spider-Man film series with Sony. Its third instalment is due to be released in December. After a recent interview, the Russo Brothers recalled how at first they were hesitant to cast Holland as Spider-Man
They said that they had talked with Kevin Feige about Tom Holland and that he had got excited, then from there they went to Sony, after that they were like lets think for a minute, and they were met with resistance, but they kept on bringing Tom Holland back, which they did a number of times, but Sony kept on dragging their feet. This is where they suddenly became hesitant they didnt want to make a million-dollar mistake.
This was also the first time ever that spiderman was actually going to be cast as an actual teenage actor, as prior they had Toby Maguire and Andrew Garfield who were not teenagers, so hence it was a big and important decision to make. But ultimately Tom Holland was cast as the spider-man we know and love today, and we love him.
