​Tom Holland Voted Best Spider-Man

Superheroes have never been more popular, with studios pumping more and more money into turning them into the big-screen action that we know and love.

One of the biggest, of course, is Spider-Man, the web-slinging, spandex-wearing super hero who resonates with anyone who's ever felt like a bit of an outsider - so, all of us then.

Of all the Spider-Men, three of the most memorable from recent years have been Tobey Maguire, Andrew Garfield and Tom Holland.

Maguire starred in the 2002 film and its subsequent sequels, giving us a dorky but lovable Peter Parker. Garfield then came along with the 2012 reboot, portraying the web-slinger as someone decidedly darker and brooding - with a comedic twist at times, too.

But then came Holland, who's now the go-to Spidey for the Avengers flicks, along with Captain America: Civil War, the 2017 film Spider-Man: Homecoming and its forthcoming sequel. And boy, is he good - especially for a young'un, being just 21.

Well, apparently he's your favourite, having been voted the best Spider-Man in a LADbible poll by taking 47 percent of the vote.

Tobey didn't do badly in the poll, coming in at a respectable second place with 36 percent of the vote.

One person wrote: "Kinda question is that, Tobey all the way."

"If ur not voting for Tobey Maguire you've got to be a 12-year-old," another said.

But Holland won out in the end - no doubt with his incredible recent performance in Avengers: Infinity War fresh in many people's minds, with many taking to Twitter to show the appreciation for the young star.



He's been a hit with the critics, too, with the Independent going as far to say that the film 'proves that Holland's Spider-Man can easily carry a movie on his own'.

And it turns out that one of his most poignant lines (don't worry, we won't share any spoilers) was actually 100 percent improvised - according to co-director Joe Russo, who revealed in a Reddit Q&A that Hoolland came up with those chilling words himself.

Gwan, Tom.
