It’s probably no surprise that if you’re gonna play Spider-man, you’re gonna have to work out a lot. And Tom Holland doesn’t seem shy about showing off the results of that exercise with a great new pic for GQ, where he’s showing off his very tight abs.
In fact he’s been training for the role of Spidey for a long time, thanks to years of dance training, as well as two years in the cast of Billy Elliott: The Musical in London’s West End. All that flexibility certainly helped him when it came time to audition for the web-slinger.
However, while he was ready for the role, apparently the costume made things more difficult, as “I could only see about five feet in front of me, with no peripheral vision.”
That led to a rather unfortunate incident where, ‘I got punched in the face. I was supposed to dodge it and I just didn’t see it coming. He cracked me in the head. He had this massive gauntlet in his hand, a big metal fist type thing, and he punched me in the face so hard, like you wouldn’t believe. But it looks great! I hope they use it. It’s one of those things where you stand up and you’re angry, like, ‘What the hell, man? You punched me in the head!’ Then you realise it’s entirely your fault.”
Take a look at the pics from GQ below. Spider-man: Homecoming is in cinemas on July 5th.
