Tom Holland surely has the acrobatic technique to leap over obstacles or stop evil doers in their tracks, be sure to check out the various videos of his flips and jumps to reassure yourself that the portrayal of Spidey is in the right hands (or legs).

Aside from revealing the final choice for the role; it also revealed the director Jon Watts is set to join the crew. So far this lineup is starting to take form very nicely, finally now that Spidey is back in Marvel’s hands.

Do you think Tom Holland can do the web slinger justice?

      Probably :p

      It’s not just the actors, it’s the movies.

      Spiderman I and II with Maguire where more than good. I still enjoy seeing the train scene in II or Dunst’s expression when see realizes who Spiderman is from II. The first was also very good with Dafoe doing a good job. The third was more of a “let’s show more effects and create a little stupid and unrealistic drama between the couple”. The two new Spidermans? There are two right? I have seen them recently and I don’t even remember what where about. What was the story, who was the bad guy, who actor was in it.
