After months of speculation, Marvel has finally announced that 19-year-old British actor Tom Holland will be next to put on the famous red and blue suit as the new Spider-Man. Holland, who has appeared in films like The Impossible and Locke, follows in the footsteps of Tobey Maguire and fellow Brit Andrew Garfield, who both played the web-slinging hero in the previous films. "Sony, Marvel, Kevin and I all knew that for Peter Parker, we had to find a vibrant, talented young actor capable of embodying one of the most well-known characters in the world," said Sony Executive Amy Pascal. "With Tom, we’ve found the perfect actor to bring Spider-Man’s story into the Marvel Cinematic Universe." Spider-Man is expected to make an appearance in Captain America: Civil War before starring in a standalone film set to arrive in theaters July 2017. Take a look at a few photos of Holland below.
