Spider-Man: Homecoming actor Tom Holland is making the press rounds for the Marvel and Sony superhero film, and you can now watch him channel Christian Bale’s Batman in this Homecoming audition tape spoof.
If there’s one thing Marvel gets right almost every single time is casting the right actor for the right role. I’m saying almost because there are a few notable missteps and you can chime in on those in the comments below.
In any case, they definitely struck gold by nabbing Tom Holland for the role of Peter Parker/Spider-Man, and the young British actor has spoken in length about his audition process for the highly coveted part. Now, thanks to MTV After hours, we can actually see how that audition process hilariously went down.
So, dig into the video and watch Holland audition for the role of Peter Parker; first as an Englishman straight out of a Charles Dickens novel, then as a ballet dancer (I just had a flashback of Jamie Bell as Billy Elliot), an acrobat and more — but, more importantly, as Christian Bale as Batman.
