Holland further revealed that he realised he was cast as Spiderman through the photo-sharing website Instagram.

“It was a crazy way to find out! I was playing golf with my dad and I had just lost so I was really sad. I had just come home and was looking at my Instagram when I saw that marvel had posted about Spiderman and mentioned ‘go to our website to find out who the new Spiderman is'” the 19-year-old said.

“I went to the website and I sort of slammed by computer screen without reading the entire article, that’s how nervous I was! But it said my name and it was the greatest day I’ve ever had,” he added.

“Captain America: Civil War” also features actors like Scarlett Johanson, Paul Bethany, Sebastian Stan, Elizabeth Olsen, Jeremy Renner, Paul Rudd, Emily Vandercamp and Daniel Bruhl.
