Stan Lee weighs in on Tom Holland as Spider-Man

Stan Lee Tom Holland has a new super fan.

Stan Lee, the creator of Spider-Man and just about every other famous Marvel superhero, thinks Tom Holland is doing a wonderful job as Spider-Man. When asked about the 20-year-old actor, Lee said, “It’s as if we created a living being to be Spider-Man, and it turned out to be Tom.”

Tom Holland first appeared as Spider-Man in 2016’s Captain America: Civil War. His portrayal was widely praised because he managed to capture the youthful energy of Spider-Man, as well as his wit.

Before joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Tom Holland received praise for his work in The Impossible and In the Heart of the Sea.

Fans of Spider-Man are eagerly awaiting 2017’s Spider-Man: Homecoming. Marisa Tomei will reprise her role as Aunt May and Robert Downey Jr. is expected to appear as Iron Man. No word yet on who the villain will be.

    I enjoyed him in the roll. Seems suitable for the age they are trying to portray Spidey. I liked that he talked a lot as though they were his thought bubbles.
