Tom Holland has already shown that he loves his fans. However, the actor recently went the extra mile to make sure that some of them were able to get his autograph, even though he couldn't see them. The actor is currently in Russia on the press tour for the upcoming release of Spider-Man: Homecoming. He found himself stuck in his hotel with dozens of fans waiting outside to see him. Since he couldn't come down, he found a way to get the autographs they likely wanted down to the fans. Check it out.
Tom Holland starts his Instagram video by saying he's been told he's not allowed to leave the hotel. It's not uncommon in situations like this for actors to be managed like this. There's a crowd outside that will almost certainly mob the new Spider-Man if he goes down there. While Holland likely understands that, he also wants to give the fans what they want, so he starts putting his autograph on a bunch of Spider-Man comic pages, which he apparently just carries around for this purpose, wads them up into balls and starts flinging them out the window to the assembled crowd below.
We can appreciate Tom Holland's understanding that this could have turned out bad. He says at one point that he doesn't want to start a frenzy, and it very easily could have turned out that way. Once the first person investigates the paper ball that came from the window and realizes what it is, there will almost certainly be people scrambling to grab the ones that come after that. However, it looks like the fans remained more or less in control, which is nice. Apparently, Russian crowds are much nicer.
Tom Holland is currently traversing the globe as part of the press tour that accompanies all major film releases. Following his introduction into the Marvel Cinematic Universe in Captain America: Civil War, Holland is now taking center stage on his own in Spider-Man: Homecoming. We'll be seeing a lot of Spider-Man over the next few years as we know he'll be appearing in Avengers: Infinity War as well as at least two more movies as part of the combined efforts of Sony and Marvel.
Meanwhile, Sony is launching their own comic book universe connected to Spider-man with characters like Venom, Silver Sable, and Black Cat. At this point, we don't know if Holland will be appearing in any of those movies, but it is apparently possible.
It's nice to see when celebrities are really nice people as well and Tom Holland continues to show that he wants the fans to have as good a time as he is having. Spider-Man: Homecoming swings into theaters July 7.
