Marvel and Sony Pictures have announced that actor Tom Holland will be the new Spider-Man. 

I don't know what to think about this casting.  Tom Holland is known for The Impossible, Wolf Hall, and the upcoming, In The Heart Of The Sea.  I have yet to see any of these films, but it sounds like the studios were impressed with him.  Marvel hasn't missed too much on casting their films so I'm willing to give him a chance.

The thing i'm unsure about is, can he be Spider-Man?  He looks like he can be Peter Parker.  The one thing I liked about the other films is that both Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield nailed certain parts of the character.   Lets hope they can take a little of both series and give us a great new film here in 2017.

What do you think?  Do you like the casting of Tom Holland as Spider-Man?
