Following the release of the new Spider-Man: Homecoming trailer, Tom Holland participated in a Facebook Live chat with fans.

Watch the video below where Tom talks about working with Marvel Studios, Sony, Michael Keaton and more.

"It was every interesting for me to see Michael [Keaton] like really, a take on a character that is terrifying," Holland said. "He really plays the character with menace and it's very interesting to see him do to that, and it was great fun. We had a great time." 

Tom Holland also shares his thoughts about the Spider-Man costume, and while it's not practical in real life, Tom Holland offers they will explain how he can put it on so quick in the movie.

"I'd keep the same color and design, but I'd make it a hoodie or something, I wouldn't make it so tight," Holland said.

Tom Holland also talks about working with Robert Downey Jr.

"Robert's great, you know. It's really fun to work with him and he came at the perfect time," Holland said. "We were making the movie, and were were probably just getting into the last third of the movie, and you know it's hard, you work fifteen hours a day and you are on set every day, it gets tiring, it gets tiring, the crew get tired, and he came and brought a whole new burst of energy. He lit the set up and really brought a lot to the movie, and we just had a lot of fun. In the trailer you see it. All the stuff you see in the trailer is basically improvised, and I love working that way and so does Robert. It was great fun to do that. It was really good."

Tom Holland also lets it be known that he enrolled in a high school in New York for three days to train for the part. Holland previously attended all-boys schools, so this was the first time he was in class with girls. Holland also says he told a couple of his classmates that he was really there for Spider-Man, but they didn't believe him.

"At the time I didn't have any pictures because we hadn't made the movie to prove that I was Spider-Man, and he did not believe me at all," Holland said and then told a story about a girl confronting him. "She was like, 'What's your deal, man? Why are you at our school? This is a science school. You can't just enroll, you have to come from the beginning.' And I was like, 'I have a secret. I have a secret.' And she was like, 'What? This guy is a freak. What the hell.' I was like, 'I actually have a secret,' and started doing my English accent. 'I'm Spider-Man,' " Holland said. "'Dude you're nuts. You are literally the craziest guy I've ever met in my life.' I was like, 'Oh. Amazing.' No one believed me, which is actually a good thing because it makes be believe if Peter Parker went up in school and was like, 'I'm Spider-Man,' no one would believe me."         

Holland also says the worst day of filming was when they couldn't figure out how to get the Spider-Man suit off fast enough, and he didn't go to the bathroom for eleven hours. Tom Holland says his best day was when he visited a chidren's hospital.

Tom Holland also says he was cast late as Spider-Man. He says he was cast on a Friday and started filming for Captain America: Civil War on that Monday.  They didn't have time to make him a Spider-Man suit, so he wore the stunt double's suit which was too big for him and he felt disappointed as that was the first time he tried on the suit, but he says now it looks fantastic.

Tom Holland also talks how he thinks Spider-Man would beat Batman in a fight and accidently let details on a scene slip.

"Spider-Man: Homecoming" has a July 7, 2017 release directed by Jon Watts starring Tom Holland, Zendaya, Michael Keaton, Donald Glover, Jacob Batalon, Laura Harrier, Tony Revolori, Tyne Daly, Bokeem Woodbine, with Marisa Tomei, and Robert Downey Jr. 

Synopsis:

A young Peter Parker/Spider-Man (Tom Holland), who made his sensational debut in Captain America: Civil War, begins to navigate his newfound identity as the web-slinging super hero in Spider-Man: Homecoming.  Thrilled by his experience with the Avengers, Peter returns home, where he lives with his Aunt May (Marisa Tomei), under the watchful eye of his new mentor Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.). Peter tries to fall back into his normal daily routine – distracted by thoughts of proving himself to be more than just your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man – but when the Vulture (Michael Keaton) emerges as a new villain, everything that Peter holds most important will be threatened.
