Tom Holland Says His Version Of Peter Parker Has Different Goals In Spider-Man: Homecoming

Spider-Man: Homecoming and Black Panther are unique in very specific ways; they're both the first Marvel characters to be introduced as guests in a movie before getting their own solo feature. Spider-Man is bowing out first this summer and Yahoo Movies (via Screen Rant) recently sat down with star Tom Holland to talk about the movie. Holland spoke about how his version of Peter Parker will be very different from the previous ones and that comes down to one big difference — motivation:

"I think the difference now is that Peter Parker finally has an all-time goal, and his goal is to become an Avenger. Everything he does, even though he's doing it for the right reasons, is done so that one day he can become an Avenger and prove himself to Tony Stark. And I think we've never really seen Spider-Man with that kind of motivation before."

The two versions of Peter that we've seen thus far have been secluded and in their own universe. There wasn't any hint that there were other heroes out there that he might want to interact with. This version has not only seen the various members of the Avengers he has fought with and against them. This version of Peter Parker wants to be a member of a team which is something we haven't been able to explore in the previous movies.

Summary: Following the events of Captain America: Civil War (2016), Peter Parker attempts to balance his life in high school with his career as the web-slinging superhero Spider-Man.

Spider-Man: Homecoming, directed by Jon Watts, stars Tom Holland, Robert Downey Jr., Marisa Tomei, Donald Glover, Zendaya, Tony Revolori, and Michael Keaton. Swing on down to your local theater and check it out on July 7th.
