Young and upcoming film star Tom Holland will be playing the titular web-crawling superhero in Spider-Man: Homecoming next month, but earlier this week the 21-year-old actor decided to don his mask early for sick and ill kids at the Children’s Hospital Los Angeles.
Holland went from room to room in his full film costume before removing his mask to chat and hang out with young patients and their parents. The actor showed the excited children his ‘web-shooter’ gadgets and even performed some side-flips in the hallway to the delight of the youngsters.
Clearly, Holland used his influence of playing a famous superhero to brighten up the children’s day. And they will likely be excited to see him in the upcoming film when it opens on July 7 this summer.
It will be directed by Jon Watts, and along with Holland the film will star Michael Keaton, Jon Favreau, Zendaya, Donald Glover, Tyne Daly, Marisa Tomei and Robert Downey Jr.
The video of Holland delighting the kids can be viewed below:
