After the character made his Marvel Studios debut in the climactic superhero battle of Captain America: Civil War, now the spotlight turns back on Spider-Man for his 6th starring film in Spider-Man: Homecoming, currently the 8th Most Anticipated Movie on ComicBook.com.
This is the second time that character’s franchise has been rebooted since the Sam Raimi and Tobey Maguire trilogy, with Sony hoping to get in on some of that Marvel magic.
And new actor Tom Holland has had to hit the ground running, going from cameo to starring role, and now he’s filming a co-starring part as the Wall Crawler in whats expected to be the biggest MCU movie to date, Avengers: Infinity War.
Holland spoke a little bit about his experience on the productions of these movies, including the whirlwind pace that he’s been on ever since he was cast as Spider-Man, and how the movies stand apart from each other.
“They all feel like very different movies to me,” Holland said. “Civil War was such a whirlwind, and I didn’t really know what was going on. I was thrown into the deep end. Spider-Man [Homecoming] was the best time of my life. I was there with my best friend. We shot in Atlanta. We shot every day and just had an absolute blast. Avengers [Infinity War] was crazy, because you’re on set every day with actors I never dreamed I would work with. I’m as much a fan as anyone else.”

Marvel and Sony have certainly made the quick use of Holland’s talents, and Spider-Man will have appeared in three films over the course of three years when Avengers: Infinity War hits theaters next year.
That kind of trial by fire might be daunting for some young actors, but when you’re sharing screen time with professionals like Robert Downey Jr., Marisa Tomei, Michael Keaton, and Chris Pratt, you’re probably getting some great advice to help cope.
We’ll get to see how Spidey fairs in his first proper MCU solo film, in which he’ll team up with Iron Man, when Spider-Man: Homecoming premieres July 7.
