Los Angeles: Tom Holland is set to play the new Spidey and former Spider-Man Andrew Garfield thinks he will make a nice one.
Garfield, 31, who played the character in last two instalments of the film, praised Holland's acting ability and physical strength, reported Entertainment Tonight. "Tom Holland is a really, really great actor," Garfield said giving example of Holland's work in "The Impossible."
"He's this incredibly powerful, sensitive, wonderful young actor and a dancer, so his body is the right (type)," he added. Speaking about not wearing the costume of Spider-Man again, Garfield said he is looking forward to that too.
"I'm just really excited to be a fan again as opposed to bearing the weight of it," he said. Filmmaker Jon Watts, who will direct the Holland, 19, in the Spider-Man standalone movie is also excited to see him playing the teenage superhero.
"He can be a real high school student. That's why people love Spider-Man. He's the most grounded, relatable of superheroes. And Tom can really do that. He captures that. And he can do a standing back-flip. He's perfect," Watts said.
