Tom Holland Makes A Grand Entrance At The Spider-Man: Homecoming Red Carpet Premiere

Last night was the red carpet premiere of Spider-Man: Homecoming and of course all the stars came out as well as Marvel.com to interview them. The arrival of Tom Holland was unique in that the studio had a Spider-Man arrive wearing the costume, the gold blazer and the head set and go out and meet fans, do some flips and genuinely get folks excited. Then he ducked into the Spider-Man decorated car and came out the other side as Tom Holland in a suit. It was a cool moment.

Then he headed down to be interviewed and comes across as humble, down-to-earth and respectful. Not something you can say about a lot of 21-year-olds. In the interview he talks about working with iconic actors like Robert Downey Jr. and Michael Keaton and the advice Keaton gave him. He also talks about the excitement about being the character and how much he wanted Spider-Man's powers to be grounded in reality. He also dodged around the fan-boy-ish questions of "how would you stop a bad guy over there" by pointing at the police and saying he would ask those nice officers to handle it and instantly admitting he would lose in a dance contest against Zendaya.

If Holland can keep the excitement he shows in the interview, I think he's gong to have a good, long run as the Wall-Crawler.

Now here is the video of his arrival followed by his interview.
