Right now, Tom Holland has his own fan base as the MCU Spidey but choreographer James Young reveals how Holland nailed the audition.
Speaking to Corridor Crew, Young said, “My favorite moment ever at Marvel… was Tom Holland. I was the one in Tom’s audition. There was something about him when he walked in.”
He added, “Tom looks over this air track and goes, 'Hey, do you mind if I go flip?' I was like, 'Whoa, absolutely not.'”
He also said, “I was like, 'I don’t know if…' He goes, 'No, I can flip, I swear.' But Tom proceeded to do front flash, like a repertoire of the really good basic flips. Side flip, front flip, roundoff flash, roundoff back... I'm like, 'Oh shit, he's got it.'”
He added, “So what they did is they had the actors come in in the Spidey underwear suit; the one he wears in the first movie. They did this whole sequence of the, 'Hey, that shield doesn't obey the laws of physics at all.' They did the whole thing.”
He said, “Chris came in on his day off. Tom goes, 'Hey Joe, would you mind if I take my own entrance?'”
He added, “Tom Holland proceeds to skip in and throw the most perfect side flip, literally straight past Chris Evans, lands on his mark, goes, 'Hey Cap, how you doing,' spins around, 'You like my suit?'"
At that point, Everyone one knew he was Peter Parker as all they did was drop their jaws.
Finally, Yound said, “So to see him come in and do that and literally leave the heads of studios with their mouth on the floor, it was one of the most special things I've ever witnessed.”
