See The Crazy Way Tom Holland Drinks While In The Spider-Man Suit
Avengers: Endgame arrived in theaters just two months ago, and there's already a new Marvel blockbuster heading to theaters. Spider-Man: Far From Home is just days away, continuing the story in the wake of Endgame and wrapping up Phase Three of the MCU in the process. It's actually Tom Holland's whopping fifth movie as Peter Parker, so the 23 year-old actor has probably gotten pretty used to wearing his signature suit by now.
That includes the great length he has to go in order to drink anything while in the Spider-Man costume. Homecoming and Far From Home director Jon Watts recently shared a photo of Tom Holland from the set of the highly anticipated sequel. And it turns out that drinking anything, in this case Starbucks, is easier said than done for the web crawler. Check it out.
Tom Holland must have really needed the jolt. Because in order to drink his chosen Starbucks beverage in the Spider-Man suit, a long straw is needed. Specifically, it goes through the opening in the eyes. Peter Parker's mask will just never look the same now.
This image comes from director Jon Watts' personal Instagram mage. Watts really delivered with Spider-Man: Homecoming, bringing a John Hughes flair and naivety to the massive shared universe. The fandom was universally thrilled when he signed back on to direct Far From Home, although the story should be far more complicated and connected to the greater MCU than its predecessor.
Spoilers ahead for Avengers: Endgame
Rather than carving out a private niche within the MCU, Jon Watts will need to follow-up Endgame with his second Spider-Man movie. The movie's trailers show that the story will be deeply connected to Tony Stark's sacrifice to destroy Thanos, with both Spidey and the world living in that grief. We'll also be shown how Peter and his friends are coping, after being reduced to dust during the five year time jump. MJ actress Zendaya has teased that this will bring them closer together, as the formerly departed characters will feel like outsiders.

As far as costumes go, it looks like Tom Holland will be rocking a variety of appearances throughout Spider-Man: Far From Home. While the black and red suit has been featured on more posters, there's at least two more costumes in the movie. The trailers for the sequel show Peter still rocking the Iron Spider he wore throughout the last two Avengers movies. Plus there's his new stealth suit, which looks like it will come courtesy of Nick Fury and S.H.I.E.L.D..
The above photo shows how binding the Spider-Man suit is for Tom Holland, especially its mask. The actor didn't have such a hard time drinking while filming Endgame and Infinity War, as he wore a motion capture suit and no mask. This allowed the Iron Spider costume to come together through visual affects, and also allowed Holland to consume all the Starbucks he wanted.
Avenger: Endgame will be re-released this coming Friday, and Spider-Man: Far From Home will arrive in theaters on July 2nd. In the meantime, check out our 2019 release list to plan your next trip to the movies.
