Tom Holland, Marvel's new Spider-Man, has talked about his role as Peter Parker and the injures he sustained while filming for Captain America: Civil War. The movie, scheduled to be released in 2016, will mark Holland's first of many appearances as Web-Slinger in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

At the premiere of the Ed Sheeran's movie, Jumpers for Goalposts, the actor was asked about some scars on his face, to which the 19-year-old said: "No, no violence. It was my own mistake. I basically fell over and bashed my face in front of about two hundred crew members, so not my most heroic moment! It was luckily just before my last shot; they were like, 'Roll cameras!', I was getting into position, everything went wrong, and they still did the take anyway. It looks great and they'll probably just CGI out all the blood, and yeah, I was very lucky."

Replying to a query on, whether his version of Spidey would take inspiration from previous Spider-Man films, The Impossible star said: "I think its impossible not to.. they were so great.. and such real and rich performances. There is obviously factors that I love and i would continue to try and recreate. I think the most important thing at the moment is making a film which is obviously of the same character, but make a new and different movie."

Tom Holland will take over the mantle from Andrew Garfield, who played Spidey in Sony's Amazing Spider-Man series.
