Watch: ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ Star Tom Holland Swings Into New York Children’s Hospital

     November 22, 2016

spider-man-slice Tom Holland continues to spread joy to the world as Marvel’s new Spider-Man. The actor suited up in his web-slinger movie costume and joined his Spider-Man: Homecoming cast mates Zendaya and Jacob Batalon during a visit to New York Presbyterian Hospital. But it looks like at least one patient was hoping for Batman.

Zendaya caught some of the visit on tape, showing Holland putting on his mask before visiting with a sick kid named Nicholas as Spider-Man. Seeing the boy’s Batman t-shirt, he asked if he liked the Dark Knight better than Spider-Man, and Spidey fell short. His reasoning? “Poo poo.” Well, who could argue with that?

Watch a clip from their visit below.

Holland previously visited patients at the Egleston Children’s Hospital in Atlanta, while he was filming a chunk of Homecoming at the city’s Pinewood Studios. He even stopped in for an interview out of the facility’s Seacrest Studios Atlanta, which is a broadcast media center from Ryan Seacrest to help connect sick children with the outside world during their stay. It’s unclear when this particular visit to the New York hospital took place, but since principal photography is already over, perhaps it was back when the cast shot scenes in the Big Apple.

Jon Watts directs Homecoming, which also features Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man, Michael Keaton as the villain Vulture, Marisa Tomei as Aunt May, Zendaya as a character named Michelle (who she promises is totally not Mary-Jane Watson), Tony Revolori as high school bully Flash, Batalon as Ned, and Laura Harrier as Liz. The cast also features Donald GloverMartin StarrJon Favreau, and Hannibal Buress.

Holland’s take on Peter Parker is very much a kid juggling his responsibilities of high school with his superhero antics. Spider-Man: Homecoming will hit theaters on July 7, 2017.
