Tom Holland Reveals His Favorite Spider-Man Movie -- And He's Not Even In It

What is Spider-Man's favorite Spider-Man movie?


Sony's Spider-Man: Across The Spider-Verse had a phenomenal opening weekend with a global box office of $209 million, almost seven times more than 2018's Into The Spider-Verse and two-thirds of that movie's total box office.

It might be a while before fans get another live-action Spider-Man with production being shut down while the WGA strike is in effect, but the man who wears that mantle, Tom Holland talked about his favorite Spider-Man film and, surprisingly, he doesn't actually appear in it.

Speaking to Variety, Holland said that his favorite Spider-Man film is actually Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. He also admitted he hasn't had time to see the sequel, so there might already be a new potential top spot.

"I think the first ‘Spider-Verse’ movie is the best Spider-Man movie that's ever been made," Holland said. "I'm so proud of everyone involved. [Producer] Amy Pascal is like my mom. I was supposed to go with her [to the premiere of Across the Spider-Verse] as her date, I couldn't go because I'm here working. But I'm incredibly proud of them, I'm excited for the second one. I'm sure it will live up to every expectation, and I can't wait to see it."

Tom Holland was brought into the MCU as its Spider-Man after negotiations with Marvel Studios and Sony finally allowed the world-famous web crawler to join the likes of Captain America, Black Widow, and Black Panther on screen for 2016's Captain America: Civil War.

Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse would go on to make $375 million worldwide, and go on to become the first comic book movie to win an Oscar for Best Animated Feature at the Academy Awards.
