James Gunn calls Tom Holland the best Spider-Man/Peter Parker ever

03.10.2016

Unless you've seen living under a rock the size of the Marvel Universe, you'd know that Marvel dropped a brand-new CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR trailer this morning which concluded with our first ever look at Tom Holland as Spider-Man. Cue the debates and obsessions over every detail about our newest incarnation of the web-slinger. One person who seems more than sold by Tom Holland as Spider-Man is GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY director James Gunn, who took to Twitter when the trailer dropped to give Holland a glowing review.

Gunn isn't just basing this on that short snippet of footage, like most of the Marvel directors currently working on a project, he's already seen the entire film. We still don't know exactly how much of a presence our new Spider-Man will have in CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR, but apparently it's enough to leave a lasting impression with James Gunn. Spider-Man will have his chance to shine (again) when his own solo-film debuts on July 7, 2017. The as-yet-untitled SPIDER-MAN film will be directed by Jon Watts (COP CAR) and stars, at the moment, Tom Holland, Marisa Tomei, and Zendaya as a character named Michelle who will have a bigger part to play in future installments.

CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR will hit theaters on May 6, 2016.

Even though we haven't seen much yet, what do you think of our new Spider-Man?

Animated eyes (my opinion)

I think it's a little early to be presumptuous regarding the animated eyes. Having animated eyes on a character who's face is completely covered helps to convey emotion. Peter Parker we all know is a genius and if he's capable of inventing indestructible web shooters, he's probably capable of inventing dilating eye thingys that also serve a practical purpose. And if he's not capable of doing it,well guess who's team he's on who is capable. So maybe everyone should just calm down about the damn

Really?

I wasn't that familiar with Tom Holland until I clicked on your link. Isn't 73 a little old to be playing Spider-Man?

Totally honest opinion eh?

Whoa, a guy under contract with Marvel praises their movie.
Must a completely honest review!
Yeah, no.

The blanketed "best ever" statements are getting a little old. All I'll say is I hope he's right.

And The CGI Spidey Eyes Are 'The Best' Too?

Seriously, they should be a little more critical with their suit designs.

Off topic

How can you side with a hyocrite like tony.
Doesnt he see he is a big part of the problem? He should just retire.
I like him as iron man but his actions dont make much sense(to me anyway)

James Gunn is to Marvel, what Kevin Smith was to Ben Affleck when he got the Batman gig. Discuss.

Seriously though, only time will tell how good Holland will be but with Maguire nailing down Parker and Garfield making for a great Spidey, there's a space vacant for someone to get both right at the same time. Personally, my gut reaction on a snippet of footage...and this isn't the rose tinted spectacle wearing Marvel fan boy in me talking...but the "Hey everybody" line he spouts in a tense

So fingers crossed.

Loving the new Spider-Man, but Gunn has said "he's the best something" about every other Marvel flick that comes out. He said Ant-Man was the best Marvel flick so far, and that isn't true. It was fun, but basic comedic superhero stuff at best. So yeah, love GoTG and Gunn seems like a great person, but I'll reserve my judgment for the movie itself.

I think Tobey Maguire is to Spidey as Christopher Reeve is to Superman,Mark Hamill is to Luke Skywalker, Michael J. Fox is to Marty McFly

A little over Gunn thinking he's the authority on everything. Seriously, dude has been funny & humble his whole career, does one hit movie and now we have to hear his blanket statements on everything. (also, he cited one of his own actors when giving examples of the best comic-book-to-movie characters - classy).

I trust him when he says this due to the fact that he's directed my personal favorite Marvel film thus far.

And I still think he has a way to go (preferably in his first solo film) to surpass Maguire. I know a lot of people criticize him in the original trilogy, but I personally enjoyed his portrayal and his films much, MUCH more than Garfield's.
