Since people began to self-isolate over a month ago, many celebrities have been extra active on social media, including Tom Holland. Since quarantining began, Holland has provided some updates on Instagram, revealing that he was sick recently, but didn't think it was COVID-19. He's also been keeping the rest of the Avengers (and Deadpool) in shape by challenging his co-stars to push-ups via social media as well as the popular handstand t-shirt challenge. This week, he also warmed fans' hearts by showing some extra love to his Spider-Man: Far From Home co-star, Jake Gyllenhaal. Today, the actor is back on Instagram to capture his social distancing feelings with an image from Spider-Man: Homecoming.
"Me watching people socialising on Instagram #spidermanhomecoming," Holland wrote. The post got some great replies: "How big was the spider Peter? Peter 'it was this big,'" @bosslogic joked. "This looks like it has the potential to become a meme," @sammixg pointed out. "I miss Homecoming days," @allforyoutholland added. "You should make a short film with your housemates called Spider-Man: Stay at Home," @swaleha08 suggested. You can check out the image Holland posted below:

Holland isn't the first person involved with the Spider-Man movies to use Homecoming to comment on the current pandemic. The movie's director, Jon Watts, returned to Instagram after a long hiatus to show a message of support for fans.
Right now, the story of Marvel's Spider-Man threequel is unknown but has been greatly hyped by the cast and crew. In fact, franchise star Tom Holland just recently called it downright "insane." That's not a surprising claim, given how Spider-Man: Far From Home ended with the villain Mysterio revealing Peter Parker's identity as Spider-Man to the world. Speaking with Inquirer.Net, Holland recently confirmed earlier reports that Marvel's Spider-Man 3 will be shooting this summer: "I'm super happy about it. We will be shooting 'Spider-Man 3' in July in Atlanta." Unfortunately, with the threat of COVID-19, it's unclear if production is still set for the coming months.
