How Marvel Used Instagram To Cast the New Spider-Man

How Marvel used Instagram to cast the new Spider-Man, Tom Holland.

Sony and Marvel have finally discovered their new Peter Park and Spider-Man but, months before Tom Holland was ever picked to replace Andrew Garfield, the actor was auditioning via Instagram. The casting calls for "Spider-Man" is over, with 19-year-old Tom Holland winning the role of Marvel's biggest superhero and it looks like the young actor may have used Instagram to land the role. Tom Holland beat the likes of Nat Wolff, Asa Butterfield, Timothee Chalamet and Liam James for the role of Peter Parker/Spider-Man. But, what landed Holland the role probably comes down to the impressive amateur stunt kills he has acquired over the past few months. Tom Holland's Instagram is filled with crazy flips, jumps, Parkour-level street tricks and action soccer kicks. “For Spidey himself, we saw many terrific young actors, but Tom’s screen tests were special. All in all, we are off to a roaring start.” saidTom Rothman, Sony Pictures Motion Pictures Group Chairman, upon announcement. It is urmored that Tom Holland will appear as Spider-Man in the new upcoming 'Captain America: Civil War' movie which is currently filming in Atlanta, Georgia.
