The newest screen version of Spider-Man joins some of his other Marvel cohorts in the ranks of Official Good Guys.

That's because Tom Holland, who's playing Spidey in Marvel and Sony's upcoming Spider-Man: Homecoming, recently took time out from filming down in Atlanta to visit a children's hospital -- in full wall-crawling gear.

The location was the Henrietta Egleston Children's Hospital, where Holland interacted with a number of kids and their families, even at one point sitting down for what appeared to be a chat of some kind.

I don't know about you, but I suddenly get a lot of dust in my eyes every time I see something like this, mainly because I imagine that for many of these kids -- who don't see a whole lot outside their hospital rooms -- getting a visit from one of the greatest superheroes of all time has to do wonders for one's spirit when facing an uncertain or difficult future.

We've seen Chris Pratt, Chris Evans and Robert Downey Jr. make visits like this too, so it's nice to see one of the newest members of the Marvel ranks get right out there as well. My computer screen is getting all blurry again ...

Holland, who made his debut in Captain America: Civil War, will lead a cast that includes Zendaya as Mary Jane Watson, Michael Keaton as the Vulture, Marisa Tomei as Aunt May, Downey as Tony Stark and many more when Spider-Man: Homecoming opens on July 7, 2017.
