“Spider-Man” reboot director Jon Watts is full of praise for the lead actor of the film, Tom Holland. For Watts, Holland is a perfect fit and he thinks that the audience will be able to relate to him.
“He can be a real high school student," Watts told Entertainment Weekly. "That’s why people love Spider-Man. He’s the most grounded, relatable of superheroes. And Tom can really do that. He captures that. And he can do a standing back-flip. He’s perfect."
Holland was confirmed to play the web slinger in the Marvel and Sony “Spider-Man” reboot earlier this year. The actor is reportedly working hard for the role and will be making first appearance as Spider-Man in “Captain America: Civil War.” It is not known how will he factor in the film, but according to Watts, Holland’s version of Spider-Man is appearing in the “Captain America” sequel to maintain a continuity in Marvel Cinematic Universe.
“I mean, it’s a big universe, so everyone sort of works with each other to make sure that there’s continuity and that it all fits together. It’s really exciting actually. We’re just getting started, working on the script and all that, but it’s going to be a great process,” he said.
"Horrible Bosses" scribes John Francis Daley and Jonathan M. Goldstein are writing the script of “Spider-Man” reboot. The plot details of the film are not known but it is reported to deal with Peter Parker’s high school years.
Daley has also said in his interview with NPR that the film will feature a lot of humor. It will be interesting to see Parker/ Spider-Man showing his funny side. The last Spider-Man film was “Amazing Spider-Man 2.” It was produced by Sony and starred Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone.
