Tom Holland's Spider-Man may be considered the most comicbook accurate version of Marvel's webslinger, however the actor doesn't fail to recognize the efforts of the actors who've worn the Spidersuit before him, taking time to meet his predecessors.
There have been two other big-screen Spider-Men over the last fifteen years, there was Tobey Maguire who was the face behind the Spider mask during the early 2000's in Sam Raimi's film trilogy and then Andrew Garfield who came in to take over as the new Spider-Man in Marc Webb's reboot movies.
Now, as Marvel's Spider-Man: Homecoming draws closer to its release date, Holland reveals how he actually met Garfield and Maguire and what it was like getting to talk with the two actors in an interview with Entertainment Tonight.
"Andrew [Garfield] was so lovely. We had a really good chat together. I met Tobey [Maguire] very briefly. They're both very nice guys."
Holland wasn't the only one who had a tete-a-tete with the Spider-Man stars coming before him. Homecoming director Jon Watts also recounts a story in an interview with Den of Geek how he had actually gotten an email from Web about what to do with the movie.
"[Marc Webb] emailed me and he said ‘I'm not gonna tell you anything, I'm just gonna say: make sure you get to hang out with Stan Lee.'"
It's definitely great to see all the support that Holland and Watts are getting from the older Spider-Man teams.
Spider-Man: Homecoming comes swinging into cinemas on July 7.
