Avengers Campus: Tom Holland To Play Spider-Man In New Disney Park Ride

Spider-Man is safely back in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but will Tom Holland be part of Web Slingers: A Spider-Man Adventure?

Comments

It's been a strange last year for Spider-Man. Back in August, it was announced that the character would no longer be tied to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Then Tom Holland appeared at the D23 convention to essentially let the fans know that he was as sad about the news as they were. Of course, ultimately, Marvel Studios and Sony were able to agree on a new deal, allowing Spider-Man to remain an Avengers. Throughout all of this, though, nobody said what kind of impact this would have on the Spider-Man ride at the upcoming Avengers Campus theme park expansion at Disney California Adventure.

In fact, until now it hadn't been confirmed one way or the other if Holland will lend his voice to the attraction, which is officially called WEB Slingers: A Spider-Man Adventure and will feature a speaking Spidey. At a recent media preview of the land and ride, though, a little bit more clarity was given.

Speaking to Walt Disney Imagineering creative executive director Brent Strong in a group interview, GameSpot asked if Holland would be voicing Spider-Man on the ride. He responded, "We haven't made any announcements, but there's only one Spider-Man."

Furthermore, it was officially confirmed at a shareholders meeting on Wednesday, March 11, that Holland would be voicing Spider-Man for the ride. All is safe in the world of Spider-Man. Of course, fans will also get the chance to meet Spider-Man and see him web-slinging high above Avengers Campus thanks to an impressive new animatronic being put to use.
