For a long time actors have been talking about the difficulty of superhero costumes, whether it’s the fact that the costume designer often doesn’t think about their need to use the bathroom, or the dicussion that goes on for men about how large their bulge is allowed to be. Now we can add the joys of the thongs to the mix, at least for new Spider-man, Tom Holland.
The young actor is known for not having much of a filter – something that’s led him to leak so many Marvel secrets that they won’t let him know the full plot of Avengers: Infinity War, because they don’t trust him not to blab about it. Now he’s decided to let the world know what he’s got going on under his Spidey-suit.
Talking to Shortlist he says, “All I have on under that costume is a thong. They brought them in on my first day, like, ‘Here are your thongs. I had serious misgivings. ‘Would my arsehole ever be the same again?’. But I had to get used to it, even though I was thinking, ‘No way, no way!’
He continues, “You have to completely disrobe and then put a dressing gown on, but they’re very comfy ones, you can’t walk around in just a thong, can you imagine? And then you race across the lot to the toilet, then come back, get back into it. It’s such a mission.”
Sadly there aren’t any pictures of him in his thong, although someone did catch him in just his undies on the Spider-man: Homecoming set, which you can take a peek at here.
