Tom Holland Reveals How He Found Out He Landed 'Spider-Man' Role

Tom Holland is dishing on how he found about being cast as the next Spider-Man!

The 24-year-old actor opened up to fellow Marvel actor Daniel Kaluuya from Black Panther in an actor on actors interview with Variety.

“The audition process was horrible. It was seven months of auditioning. I must’ve done six auditions, and they don’t tell you anything. They just always tell you you did a great job, and they’ll be in touch” Tom shared. “Then six weeks will go by and you’re waiting and waiting and waiting, and then, eventually, I got a screen test in Atlanta.”

Tom tested with Robert Downey Jr, then eventually after about another six weeks, he tested with Chris Evans.

“They flew us back to Atlanta, me and one other guy, and we did this scene, which was so surreal. By that point, it had been an amazing enough of an experience that if I hadn’t got the part, I would’ve felt like I’d at least achieved something to get to that point,” Tom said. “I went out to play golf with my dad. I lost and I was upset, and I remember going on my phone and checking Instagram, and Marvel had posted a picture of ‘Spider-Man,’ of the cartoon. And by this point, I kind of had assumed I hadn’t got it, because no one had called me.”

“I got my computer, and my dog was sitting next to me. I type in ‘Marvel.’ I’ve still got the article saved on my computer. It said, ‘We would like to introduce our new Spider-Man, Tom Holland,’” he continued. “I broke my computer, because I flipped it up in the air. It fell off my bed; my dog went nuts. I ran downstairs. I was telling my family, ‘I got the part! I got the part!’ And obviously, that was right about the time when Sony had got hacked, so my brother, Harry, who’s quite tech savvy, was like, ‘No. There’s no way that’s real. They would have called you. They’ve been hacked.” And then the studio called me and gave me the news. It was so bizarre how it happened.”

Tom even thought that he was going to get fired between Captain America: Civil War and Spider-Man: Homecoming.

Tom was just recently seen on set of Spider-Man 3 with his co-star Zendaya in Atlanta, and we just got the first look at Tom in the new Spider-Man attraction at Disneyland!
