The European premiere of Captain America: Civil War saw actor Tom Holland making an appearance on the red carpet as the new web-slinging superhero. The London-born actor, who replaces English-American actor Andrew Garfield as the Spider-Man, made his superhero debut in the Captain America film.
During the premiere of the film in London's Westfield, Holland said he was a little disappointed with the spidey costume as it was baggy and wasn't "as cool" as he had hoped. "I have to say it was a little disappointing, because my stunt double at the time was a little taller than I am, and I had to wear his suit because they didn't have one for me," the actor mentioned in an interview with Marvel UK.
However, after alterations, the Spider-Man suit looked "incredible" and was amazing, according to the 19-year-old actor.
Holland was joined on the red carpet by co-star Robert Downey Jr, who plays Iron Man in the Captain America instalment. "Spider-Man is English again," said Downey Jr, congratulating Holland on his debut. Other co-stars who were spotted during the premiere include Chris Evans, Sebastian Stan, Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Rudd.
The third Captain America movie features other characters from Marvel Cinematic Universe as well as Spider-Man and Ant-Man. When questioned about filming his own standalone movie, Spider-Man: Homecoming, Holland said: "I was unbelievably excited about it anyway but this just raises it to a new level."
As of now, the British actor is happy to be standing alongside the famous names of the world of superheroes. "To be here and to be surrounded by this wonderful cast is just incredible, and I'm so proud of this movie, and just, everything's amazing."
