Tom Holland, our beloved Spider-Man celebrates his birthday on June 1. MCU's youngest star turns 25 today. Tom Holland has been making us fall for him over and over again ever since he made his way to the big screen playing the role of Peter Parker alias Spider-Man. He went from appearing in minor roles alongside actors like Saoirse Ronan and Chris Hemsworth to starring as Spider-Man in the massively popular Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) movies. His portrayal of Spider-Man has become a fan favourite, with fans often calling him the best wall-crawler to date.
On the occasion of his birthday, here are some of the best Tom Holland moments as Spider-Man:
Being a Friendly Neighbourhood Spider-Man (Spider-Man: Homecoming)
The initial sequences of Spider-Man: Homecoming perfectly establish a teenaged Spider-Man in the MCU. Bunking his school midway, we see Peter Parker hiding in an alley as he changes into his Spider-Man suit. Helping people around in a hilarious montage with "Blitzkrieg Bop” by The Ramones playing in the background, you’ll instantly fall in love with Holland.
Spider-Man vs Bucky and Falcon (Captain America: Civil War)
After goofing up with an awkward first impression at the airport, Spider-Man is quickly thrown into a battle with Falcon and The Winter Soldier. In this great action sequence, we actually get to see what Tom Holland brings to the table as Spider-Man.
Swipe Out (Avengers: Infinity War)
The scene that haunts all Marvel fanatics. Thanos snapping his fingers as he finally succeeds, wiping off half of the world along with some of our favourite superheroes. The most heart-breaking fade out was that of Spider-Man, as he tightly clutches on to Iron Man.
The Trapped Hero (Spider-Man: Homecoming)
In the pursuit of the Vulture, we see Peter tracking down his hideout and being trapped in the rubbles after being overpowered in an altercation. One of the most iconic scenes of Holland's Spider-Man, as the trapped hero finally awakens is a delight to watch. Executed perfectly, Holland will melt your heart with this scene.
The Emotional Scene (Avengers: Endgame)
The epic Endgame action sequence saw Iron Man snapping his fingers and wiping out Thanos and his army, followed the heart-breaking last scenes of Iron Man. Spider-Man's last interaction with his mentor was tear-jerking to say the least. Holland's impeccable acting as a heartbroken Spider-Man made all the fans sob in the corner.
