Spiderman star Tom Holland recently got candid about his honest reaction when he landed the iconic part back in 2015. In a recent interview for Variety‘s Actors on Actors series, Holland spoke with fellow MCU star Daniel Kaluuya to talk about Marvel’s latest features--Cherry and Judas and the Black Messiah. 

 

When asked about how the Spiderman movies came to be and what impact they had on his life, Tom opened up about the audition process of the film, stating the process was “horrible,” as it was a total 7 months-long process. Although, after his screen tests with Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Evans, Tom got clarity on the role, but not from Marvel studios, the actor says that he actually found out about landing the role through social media.

 

While recalling, Tom said: “I type in ‘Marvel.’ I’ve still got the article saved on my computer,” Tom remembered. “It said, ‘We would like to introduce our new Spider-Man, Tom Holland.’ I broke my computer, because I flipped it up in the air. It fell off my bed; my dog went nuts.” He added that he went downstairs and screamed with his family while celebrating his new part. Shortly after, the studio called Holland and gave him the news. Tom added about the experience that “it was so bizarre.”

 

If you missed it, back in October 2020, Holland, who has played the Marvel superhero in numerous Marvel Cinematic Universe movies including Avengers: Endgame, was all set to reprise the character in Spider-Man 3. According to a video shared by Holland on his Instagram Stories in October, it seemed that the cast is assembling at Atlanta for the shoot. The British actor sported an orange mask and walked out of his flight while recording a quick video from the airport. The excited actor said, "So, we just landed in Atlanta and it's time for Spider-Man 3. Let's go!"
