One coffee shop was in for an unexpected surprise this weekend when Tom Holland waltzed in while wearing his official Spider-Man: Homecoming costume. Considering that the young actor really only had about 20 minutes worth of screentime when he was introduced in last year’s Captain America: Civil War, it’s a testament to Holland’s performance as the character that he’s already become so tightly woven into the very fabric of the Marvel Cinematic Universe at this point. And he only looks to further cement his place alongside Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) and the rest of the Avengers, later this year when Spider-Man: Homecoming hits theaters.
Picking up some time after the events of Civil War, the new standalone film follows Holland’s Peter Parker as he still struggles to find his place as both Spider-Man and a normal 15-year-old kid. But when a new series of villains, including The Vulture (Michael Keaton) and The Shocker (Bokeem Woodbine), start causing chaos in New York City, forcing Peter to either step aside and let the big guys take them on, or try to fight them himself.
Holland has had a busy couple of months in 2017 already, taking the time to shoot both pickups/reshoots for Spider-Man: Homecoming and shooting scenes for next year’s The Avengers: Infinity War. But despite his busy production schedule, Holland still found some time for a much-needed coffee break, when he walked into a nearby coffee shop and ordered something while still in costume. Check out Holland’s Instagram post about it from this morning below:
It’s worth noting that in this photo, Holland appears to be wearing the same outfit/costume that he was from earlier this week, when it was revealed he had shot something with both DJ Khaled and Stan Lee, which at the time was presumed to be for Homecoming. So while it’s not clear which production it is that he took a coffee break from, it looks to at least be the same one that Khaled and Lee were involved in.
This photo is only the latest in a long line of production moments from Holland’s Spider-Man projects that appear to focus heavily on the on-the-streets vibe of this particular iteration of the character. That’s certainly not a bad thing either, since the high school kid, dumpster-diving details revealed in Civil War all contributed toward Holland’s version being received so warmly in the first place. So to say that Spider-Man: Homecoming has some mighty high expectations to live up to, following Holland’s debut in Civil War, would be an understatement. Now, only time will tell if Homecoming is actually able to meet them or not.
