‘Spider-Man Homecoming’ Star Tom Holland on His On-Set Injury and New Spidey Suit (Q&A)

Spider-Man Homecoming director Jon Watts and star Tom Holland both forsaken by Las Vegas Monday to share a new trailer from their arriving Sony and Marvel film with a assembly during CinemaCon, forward of a trailer’s recover online Tuesday.


The film, that hits theaters on Jul 7, 2017, stars Holland as Peter Parker, who’s navigating high propagandize while also removing used to his adorned new powers and Tony Stark-designed suit.

Ahead of Sony’s presentation, Holland and Watts sat down with The Hollywood Reporter to pronounce about sharpened a new Spidey film, what creates their take conflicting and what Holland did when he got an damage on set (hint: he enlisted a assistance of a good friend).

How did we representation your take on Spider-Man to get a pursuit as a director?

Watts: we went in to Marvel for a ubiquitous meeting, and afterwards they were articulate about how they had teamed adult with Sony and they had this event to pierce in Sony to a Marvel universe. They were disposition towards it being a high propagandize movie, and we had been wanting to make a high propagandize movie. I’d been examination each coming-of-age film that there is since that’s a good forgive to not start writing, doing “research.” we was unequivocally about to pronounce to a theme about what we favourite about coming-of-age movies, and we had this common language. we was so vehement about it that we was superfluous with ideas.

After Captain America: Civil War came out, did we compensate courtesy to what fans were observant about your new take on Spider-Man?

Holland: People kept observant don’t compensate courtesy to a comments, though we found it unfit not to. we consider we was propitious that a infancy of people were observant unequivocally good things. we was a tiny shaken about a release, and we was over a moon with a response we got.

How would we report your Peter Parker to people who’ve seen a prior large shade versions?

Holland: Different to a prior two. we felt unequivocally strongly about a doubt about what would occur if we gave a 15-year-old super powers. we consider a answer would be he would have a time of his life. Yes, he would substantially stop crime, though have so many fun doing it. We unequivocally attempted to communicate that he’s enjoying his superpowers. More mostly than not in superhero movies, a powers are a weight to a superhero though in a case, they’re a finish opposite.

Have we talked to Tobey Maguire or Andrew Garfield about personification Peter Parker?

Holland: we haven’t been in hit with them though they pronounced unequivocally good things about me online, that was a poetic thing to hear. we met Andrew during a BAFTAs recently and he was lovely. I’m a outrageous fan of his, generally a past integrate of years, all a work he’s been doing. He wished me good luck. we was unequivocally happy to accommodate him.

What are we many unapproachable of with this film?

Watts: we consider it has a unique, startling tinge that’s conflicting from a others, and conflicting from a other cinema in this universe. I’m flattering unapproachable of a tinge we struck. It’s fun. It’s means to go from a unequivocally tiny story, and unequivocally romantic tiny stakes and only get bigger and bigger until it’s on a large scale though ever losing site of a story we were perplexing to tell.

Holland: I’ve never worked harder on anything in my life. It was a uninterrupted pursuit and we felt so ardent and unapproachable of what we were creating. I’m so unapproachable that we was means to give my best, and I’m so beholden that we didn’t get injured. we did a lot of stunts. At a unequivocally end, we fell down some stairs, and tweaked my ACL only a tiny bit.

Did we need to take a few days off?

Holland: It was right during a end, so we managed to get by it. The humorous thing is we consider one of my final shots of a film was me chasing a bus, and we couldn’t do it. My best crony Harrison was my partner while we were out there so we dressed him adult like me and had him run. So Harrison has a tiny cameo in a movie, that is great.

What was your possess high propagandize knowledge like?

Holland: we went to an English high propagandize that is unequivocally conflicting — it’s all boys, fit and tie. But we enrolled for 3 days in a high propagandize in New York as a investigate exercise. we had a feign accent, a feign name. It was fun. The Bronx School of Science is a propagandize for talent kids, and I’m really not a genius. A lot of a students and teachers were confused as to since we was there so they would exam me, and glow off questions during me. It was a tiny embarrassing, though unequivocally informative.

The new Spider-Man fit has a spider-drone that comes out of a core emblem. How did we come adult with new gadgets though stay constant to what comic book fans know and adore about Spider-Man?

Watts: There’s a fashion for it in a comic books since Tony Stark builds Peter a new suit. Tony Stark is a unequivocally bells and whistles kind of guy. We had that set adult in Civil War. That was one of a fun brainstorm meetings: What could be in that suit? We done a list of all a neat things that Tony would put in there for Peter to learn or keep him safe. At one point, we only satisfied “what if that tiny spider could yield out and pierce around and do surveillance?”

Holland: Our tiny worker has 10,000 things it could do. we consider we found a correct use in a movie. It’s humorous — he has a tiny attribute with a drone, like a tiny sidekick.

There’s already a recover date for Homecoming 2. What’s going on with that. Are we directing?

Watts: I’ve gotta finish this one initial — one during a time. There’s still a lot of VFX work to do in post. Talk to me on 7/8/17.
