Spider-Man is one of the most beloved superheroes from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. And though he's been played by numerous actors over the years, his latest iteration as a part of the superhero team, The Avengers, is among his most popular yet - thanks in no small part to his excellent portrayal by Tom Holland.
But fans of the star have recently been hit by some pretty brutal news. And, thankfully, this time, it doesn't involve Sony, Marvel, or Disney! Thank God! Instead, it involves a crucial aspect of Holland... his hair.
It's gone... Cue the dramatic tears.
Created by legends, Stan Lee and Steve Ditko, Spider-Man is a classic superhero.He first appeared in the Marvel Comic books in 1962, in what's known as the Silver Age.
He's one of Marvel's most popular superheroes.Which means that Spider-Man has enjoyed many different iterations over the years. He was first brought to life by Danny Seagren in the '70s, and was then played by Tobey Maguire in the early 2000's trilogy.
The first Spider-Man reboot starred Andrew Garfield.Garfield played the iconic character between 2012 and 2014 and Emma Stone played Gwen Stacy.
In 2015, Sony and Disney made a deal with the Marvel Cinematic Universe.The deal involved a crossover for the iconic character, which first started with Captain America: Civil War in 2016.
The casting choice for the newest Spider-Man was a little controversial.He was played by relatively unknown (and incredibly young) British actor, Tom Holland. But, soon enough, the newest Spider-Man became a fan favorite.
Things were going well.Holland starred in five Marvel movies as Spider-Man. But, remember when fans received some unwelcome news about the deal?
Holland's future in the role was called into question.Reports came out that Sony and Disney/Marvel were having a lot of trouble coming up with terms that would allow the character to remain in the MCU.
And if the two powers can't come up with a deal?Well, it'll mean that Spider-Man has to leave the Avengers forever - meaning Tom Holland will be totally out of a job. But thankfully, they've managed to come to an agreement, which has settled Twitter fans.
Tom Holland is one of the most talented guys out there.
