Tom Holland Shows Off Spider-Man’s Dance Moves in New ‘Homecoming’ Set Video
Just last week, Joe and Anthony Russo shared a behind-the-scenes photo of Josh Brolin rehearsing for Avengers: Infinity War, giving us our first look (sort of) at Thanos’ return. But Jon Watts isn’t about to let the Russos get away with stealing the superhero spotlight — in response, the director of Spider-Man: Homecoming has offered up a new set video that shows off Tom Holland’s breakdancing skills, complete with mo-cap Spidey action.
Watts took to Instagram to share the new video, which features Holland busting a move to Daft Punk in his mo-cap gear while a temp CG rendering of Spider-Man follows along:
We can only hope that this leads to an intense social media rivalry involving more great set photos and videos of various Marvel heroes dancing — but let’s be real here, if Taika Waititi and the Thor: Ragnarok crew join in, Watts and the Russos are toast.
Marvel and Sony’s new reboot is currently filming in Atlanta, with Holland reprising his role as Peter Parker / Spider-Man opposite Marisa Tomei’s Aunt May and Robert Downey Jr.’s Tony Stark. Jon Favreau recently signed on to join his Iron Man co-star in Spider-Man: Homecoming, which also features Zendaya as (rumor has it) Mary Jane Watson, Michael Keaton as The Vulture, Bokeem Woodbine as The Shocker (confirmed by recent set pics) and Orange Is the New Black’s Michael Chernus as The Tinkerer.
Spider-Man: Homecoming hits theaters on July 7, 2017.
