Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield were two very different Peter Parkers, and as the first Spider-Man to be part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Tom Holland’s upcoming take will no doubt be something new to what’s come before once again. Asked in a recent interview whether or not his performance in Marvel’s Spider-Man will borrow anything from those, he replied:
“I think it’s impossible not to. They were so great and such real and rich performances. There’s factors that I love and will continue to recreate, but I think the most important thing is making a film which is with the same character, but making it different and a new and exciting movie.”
Holland is no doubt just trying to be polite here as his younger Peter is sure to share very little in common with what Maguire and Garfield did!
Regardless, the British actor then went on to reveal that he actually sustained a minor injury on the set of Captain America: Civil War in what sounds like a pretty embarrassing moment. Luckily he’s ok, and while it would have been pretty cool for him to reveal that he got busted open by Cap’s shield, it turns out that it was far simpler than that.
“It was my own mistake. I basically fell over and bashed my face in front of about two hundred crew members, so not my most heroic moment! It was luckily just before my last shot; they were like, ‘Roll cameras!’, I was getting into position, everything went wrong, and they still did the take anyway. It looks great and they’ll probably just CGI out all the blood, and yeah, I was very lucky.”
