The young actor doesn’t appear to have many large projects to his credit, but Marvel remains confident he will do a great job.
Holland seems to for the bill for the younger Spider-Man Marvel has long been rumored to be skewing towards, and definitely bears a resemblance to Peter Parker of the Ultimate Spider-Man universe.
Also of note, Jon Watt has been pegged as director for the Spider-Man solo film coming in 2017. Interestingly enough, Watt also does not have an extensive background of huge projects, so it will be interesting to see what the duo can bring to the table.
It’s also worth mentioning that we may not have to wait long to see Holland in action, as Spider-Man is rumored to appear in next spring’s Captain America: Civil War.
