It's Tom Holland's birthday (1 June). The young British actor is celebrating his 25th birthday today, probably out enjoying the glorious sunshine somewhere.
In his relatively short career so far, he has managed to make a huge name for himself, becoming one of the biggest stars in Hollywood.
And a big reason for that is his incredible portrayal of Peter Parker in the new Spider-Man
So impressive have his performances been that fans voted him the best to ever do it.
In a poll of LADbible readers, 50.3 percent of the 11,167 who took part said he was their favourite, putting him ahead of Andrew Garfield, Miles Morales (voiced by numerous actors) and the OG Tobey Maguire.
Heaping praise on the London-born star, one user said: "Anything other than Tom Holland is wrong."
As it's Andrew Garfield's birthday today (Happy Birthday btw:birthday:), we thought we'd settle the debate once and for all.
Just WHO is the best Spider-Man? :spider_web:️:spider:️

Another said: "Andrew Garfield played an absolute brilliant part in Hacksaw Ridge and is a brilliant actor. Only reason I would say Tom Holland was better at Spider-Man because his age more suited the part."
While a third commented: "I don't mind any of them but the Garfield movies were awesome. Would've liked to have seen a third and final one."
Holland is set to star in his third outing as the web-slinger later this year, Spider-Man: No Way Home.
And he seems to be fairly confident with how it's going to turn out, calling it 'the most ambitious standalone superhero movie ever made'.
Filming has been underway since last autumn for the follow-up to 2019's Spider-Man: Far From Home, and Holland, speaking earlier this year, kept things pretty close to his chest with regards to what fans might expect from the Jon Watts-directed sequel.
Nevertheless, he did say just enough to hype the anticipation levels just that bit further.
After telling Variety he couldn't say anything about it, he told the publication's Awards Circuit podcast: "I can say that it's the most ambitious standalone superhero movie ever made.
"You sit down, read the script, and see what they're trying to do, and they're succeeding. It's really impressive.
"I've never seen a standalone superhero movie quite like it. And I'm just, you know... that lucky little s*** who happens to be Spider-Man in it.
"We got a lot more shooting to do. We started before Christmas and shot for like seven weeks. We stopped for the Christmas break, and then we're starting again.
"I'm just as excited as everyone else to see it, let alone be a part of it."
