Tom Holland and Fans Celebrate Spider-Man’s 5-Year Anniversary in the MCU. Marvel fans nearly lost their minds when it was announced that Spider-Man would be joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) and there is no doubting that Marvel and Sony nailed it when casting Tom Holland as our new friendly neighborhood Spider-Man.
Some fans have even shared that initially they were skeptical of the young actor, but Tom quickly changed their minds by portraying the perfect Peter Parker/Spider-Man in the films. In the 5-films featuring the web slinger we have seen incredible character growth, deepening friendships, and lots of new spidey-suits right out of every cosplayers dreams.
Holland is also beloved by fans for his kind heart and charity work, primarily his knack for showing up at Children’s Hospitals in costume to cheer up young fans who are fighting various illnesses. He has also proven he isn’t afraid of being a true hero, having once saved a fan who was being crushed against a security barrier and in the midst of a panic attack. His friendships with fellow Marvel stars such as Robert Downey Jr., Chris Pratt, Jake Gyllenhaal, and Ryan Reynolds have kept fans entertained online and loving that the actors get along with his co-stars both on and off screen.
This week, fans are celebrating with Tom Holland online as his 5-year anniversary passed on June 23rd, the date he was officially cast as Peter Parker/Spider-Man in a historic collaboration between Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios.
Check out how the fans are celebrating the impact Tom has had on Marvel fans from around the world:

Happy 5th year of Tom Holland being cast as Spider-Man. I honestly couldn't ask for a better Peter Parker. The talent Tom's developed is astonishing – able to make me feel and cry for this version of Peter is incredible.
