When Spider-Man was bringing down a giant sized Ant-Man during Captain America: Civil War, the superhero was having an absolute ball. Making jokes, puns and pop culture references, the webbed teen referred to Empire Strikes Back. All while he brought Paul Rudd's character to his knees much in the same fashion as the rebellion did with the AT-AT Walkers.
"Anyone seen that really old movie? Empire Strikes Back?" asked Peter Parker.
Well it turns out neither has he, with the Englishman making the embarrassing admission while talking to the press to promote his latest work The Lost City of Z. Not the worst crime in the world. Especially when he mentions his hectic schedule does not allow him much R&R time. Though the actor said that he will try and go back to scour Episodes IV-VI as quickly as possible.
Holland: I Grew Up With The Later Prequels
For those that are old enough to appreciate the legacy left by the original movies, it can be easy to forget that they are from another era entirely. Someone of Holland's demographic at 20-years of age thinks of Episode 1 in 1999 the same way many others see A New Hope, Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi.
But rather than dodge the question, Holland said that he might have some homework to do once he gets around to it.
"I'm not a huge Star Wars fan," Holland told Yahoo! Movies. "I am a fan of the new ones. I thought Rogue One and Force Awakens were dope ... I just for some reason skipped the original Star Wars. And I’m even more embarrassed to say that I loved those movies when I was a kid. Everyone’s like, ‘What? You liked those movies?!‘ But I thought they were great.”
Daily Bugle Is Back For Homecoming
If Superman has The Daily Planet, then Marvel and Spider-Man has The Daily Bugle. Yes the fictional newspaper that has been run by the likes of William Walter Goodman, J. Jonah Jameson, Thomas Fireheart, Norman Osborn and now Dexter Bennett in the comics is said to be back for Spider-Man: Homecoming.
Tom Holland Source attended an event in Tokyo this week and managed to take a screen grab that showed an edition of the tabloid. Spilling the beans on the inclusion of the paper in the movie. Who is running it and what role Parker will have with the company is anyone's guess. Particularly given the fact that Holland is still in his High School years and not exactly in the workforce quite yet.
