In the upcoming Spider-Man: Far From Home, actor Tom Holland reprises his role as the friendly neighborhood Spider-Man Peter Parker as he takes a post-Avengers: Endgame European vacation. That relaxation will prove short-lived as Peter Parker can’t stop being the hero and helping those in need. The same is true for actor Tom Holland, who proved to be a real-life hero for a fan in need during a crowd frenzy.
The incident took place in New York City, where Tom Holland was signing autographs for a large group of fans. People were rushing and pushing to get to the actor to get things signed and in the frenzy apparently a young female fan was getting pushed up against a barricade to the point where she felt like she couldn’t breathe and was going to have a panic attack. That’s when Tom Holland intervened.
In a video uploaded to Twitter by the fan @NamelessCass, Tom Holland is seen telling the pushing fans to back up and says “I’m gonna throw your shit on the floor if you keep pushing that girl.” Tom Holland was not having it from the aggressive crowd that was said to be full of “graphers,” people who get celebrity autographs just to resell them later on.
Tom Holland was apparently good for his word and did throw some of their stuff on the ground when the pushing didn’t stop. Ever the gentleman though, when the fan was saying she was going to have a panic attack, Tom Holland can be heard trying to comfort her by saying “It’s okay, I got you, I got you.” She says that Holland even risked his own safety by reaching through the crowd to help her.
It sounds like the whole thing was a rather unpleasant experience for the fans being crushed Battle of the Bastards style by a group not willing to wait in an orderly fashion to get autographs from the young actor. By the looks of things Tom Holland was not pleased with the situation either, but rather than just let it go on, he showed why he is Spider-Man by playing the hero as best he could.
Tom Holland plays the hero on the big screen next month in Spider-Man: Far From Home, the final film in the MCU’s Phase 3 and The Infinity Saga, which is looking to open big and help save the summer box office. Far From Home has already screened and the early reactions are overwhelmingly positive and intriguing, with people raving about the film’s hugely consequential post-credits scenes.
Now if only this real-life superhero can not fall prey to his own fatal flaw and keep the spoilers to a minimum.
