Tom Holland visits children's hospital, gets rebuffed by Batman fan

The screen's new Spider-Man found himself up against a problem even he couldn't solve during a recent visit to a kids' hospital.

Tom Holland, who made his debut earlier this year as Spidey in Captain America: Civil War, joined castmates Zendaya and Jacob Batalon from his upcoming solo movie Spider-Man: Homecoming on a recent visit to New York Presbyterian Hospital to see the young patients being treated there.

With Zendaya filming, Holland donned his Spider-Man costume and mask and went to say hello to a little boy named Nicholas. But Holland was unprepared for what he saw: Nicholas was wearing a Batman shirt, and had apparently been hoping for a visit from the Caped Crusader.

Holland gamely quizzed Nicholas on whether he liked Batman better than Spider-Man, and if so, why, and the erudite Nicholas gave the only answer possible under the circumstances.

What was his response? Watch below and find out:

We're optimistic that Nicholas' rebuttal won't put Holland off future hospital visits: this was his second one following a stop at the Egleston Children’s Hospital in Atlanta while shooting Spider-Man: Homecoming down there, and he seems to really relish the chance to brighten these kids' day a bit. Surely being called "poo poo" now and then won't change his mind.

Spider-Man: Homecoming, which will hopefully not be "poo poo," arrives in theaters on July 7, 2017.
