The nights are drawing in, and the leaves have begun to fall, but don’t fret! We’ve got just the thing to warm your cockles.
Marvel’s new Spider-Man Tom Holland recently visited Egleston Children’s Hospital of Atlanta in costume, and now there’s video of his meet-and-greet with patients and chat with Seacrest Studios about the upcoming movie.
“Spider-Man has always been a huge part of my life,” said the 20-year-old actor. “I loved the movies, I loved the comics, and I always just wanted to be Spider-Man. I could never have imagined that this would become a reality, and then to be here today and meet all you guys is such a privilege.”
Awww. He went on to discuss filming, which started in June, and getting used to the hot and steamy Atlanta weather, before admitting the movie’s costume department might not be his biggest fans.
Talking about his costume, he said: “I break them quite a lot because I have to do a lot of stunts and flips and stuff, so they rip. […] We have 20 suits, I think, that we alternate. This is actually what we would call a beauty suit, which means it’s picture ready. And then we have a stunt suit, which isn’t as nice as this one.”
Fingers crossed for his sake he managed to keep this one pristine:
The kids certainly seemed happy to have a real-life web-slinger walking the wards—and Tom in his turn seemed glad to be there. So much so, he posted some photos of the visit to Instagram a couple weeks ago:
