Tom Holland Reveals How He Learned He Landed Spider-Man Role

Celebrities -- they're just like us! At least that's true when it comes to Tom Holland and how he learned the identity of the actor playing Spider-Man in Marvel's shared movie-verse. Holland, who will make his debut as Spider-Man in 2016's "Captain America: Civil War," opened up about the life-changing discovery during an appearance on Sirius XM's Sway's Universe.

"I was actually having a really bad day, and I found out on Instagram," said Holland. "I was in my bed, I was scrolling through Instagram, and Marvel had posted a photo of Spider-Man. It said 'Go to our website, and find out who it is.' I opened the screen, and then it said my name, and I went nuts."

The post Holland's referring to, as well as his interview with Sway, can be seen below.

Holland will appear in 2016's "Civil War," although it's still a mystery just how big his part will be in the film. Spider-Man was noticeably absent from the first trailer for the film. He will then get another feature film, directed by Jon Watts, on July 28, 2017.
