Being in the middle of a road trip means I’m a day or so behind this, and while I’m not certain it counts as hard news it definitely ranks as one of the most charming things I’ve seen after the past fourteen days or so of fairly horrendous world events.
To mark the one year point until the first offspring of the new Marvel Studios/Sony Pictures partnership to relaunch (another) cinematic version of Marvel’s flagship character in Spider-Man: Homecoming, the film’s exciting new lead, Tom Holland, took to his Instagram page to post what might be the greatest selfie ever.
Hoist high in the air in costume, above the rest of the crew, the young actor struck a suitably Spidey-like pose.
Starring Holland, Marisa Tomei, Zendaya, Robert Downey Jr. and what’s beginning to sound like every up and coming young actor in Hollywood, Spider-Man: Homecoming, directed by Cop Car’s Jon Watts, launches on July 7, 2017. If the finished film has half the charm and sense of fun of this photo we should be in for a treat!
