New Delhi:

Just another episode in the ongoing saga of Marvel super-heroes, Spider-man: Homecoming, is as much a high school drama about an adolescent trying to make sense of the world as it is a superhero film.

Tom Holland’s Peter Parker, one of the liveliest characters in last year’s Captain America: Civil War, now has an entire movie devoted to him.

Holland, 20, follows in the footsteps of Tobey Maguire, who starred in Sam Raimi’s original trilogy of Spider-Man movies, and Andrew Garfield, who played Spider-Man in the two Amazing Spider-Man reboot movies.

According to Robert Downey Jr actor Tom Holland is "perfect" to play Spider-Man as the young star is physically quite gifted.

"Tom is the perfect man for the job. He's enthusiastic, bright and gifted, a very physically talented guy by virtue of his dance and acrobatic background. He has just the right combination of elements required to bring a new take on the character", Downey Jr said.

Directed by Jon Watts the movie is set to hit the theatres in India on July 7 in English, Hindi, Tamil and Telugu.
