Tom Holland became a household name back in 2016, when his version of Peter/Parker Spider-Man debuted in theaters with Captain America: Civil War. Since then, Holland has gone on to reprise his role in four more movies, with Spider-Man: Far From Home set to arrive in a matter of days. While the 23-year-old actor is synonymous for accidentally spoiling contents of the MCU, he's also become somewhat of a real-life hero recently.
The Spider-Man: Far From Home star recently made headlines for helping a fan who was nearly crushed in a crowd frenzy. And it turns out that he also pulled a Peter Parker on a recent flight. Tom Holland recently explained the situation, saying:
Talk about a rollercoaster of emotions. While Tom Holland was on a flight and enjoying the fact that Spider-Man: Homecoming was available on the plane, it turns out that his real-life spidey sense began tingling. And his intuition was right, as another passenger quickly passed out.
This story came from Tom Holland's recent appearance on Late Night with Seth Meyers. While promoting his second solo movie Spider-Man: Far From Home, the subject of his real-life heroism eventually came up. While the sequel's trailers tease Spider-Man having some sort of conflict involving a Stark jet, the actor who plays Peter Parker was involved in his own high flying emergency.
Tom Holland went on to further explain the situation, saying:
Well, at least Tom Holland has a good sense of humor about the whole thing. It looks like the woman who passed out ended up being ok, although the actor looked like a method actor to the other passenger who was watching Homecoming.
This story comes to light just days after Tom Holland came to a fans' defense in New York City. When signing autographs for fans and resellers, Tom Holland witnessed a young female fan being crushed at the barricade by the mass of people. He ultimately comforted and helped guard her, while throwing the graphers' signed items to the floor. Talk about a hero.
Fans will get to see Tom Holland as a fictional hero when Spider-Man: Far From Home hits theaters July 2nd to close out Phase Three. In the meantime, check out our 2019 release list to plan your next trip to the movies.
