James Gunn Says Tom Holland’s Spider-Man Is "the Best Spider-Man Ever"
Tom Holland’s version of Spider-Man just got a huge positive endorsement from Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn, who has already seen the movie. Marvel’s version of Spider-Man debuted yesterday in the trailer for Captain America: Civil War and there were a lot of mixed reactions from the fans. I think the character looks great, and I’m surprised by all the naysayers. A lot of people say the character looks too CG, but the thing is... that is Tom Holland wearing a costume in the photo above.
Gunn likes Holland in the role so much that he says he’s the best Spider-Man ever, and goes on to compare him to Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man and Heath Ledger’s Joker. Here are the comments the director posted on social media:
That's some pretty high praise from Gunn, who is definitely building the hype. I think Gunn knows great talent when he see’s it, and I’m looking forward to seeing more of how Holland handles the character.
Captain America: Civil War arrives in theaters on May 6th.
