Spider-Man—AKA Tom Holland—actually has a damn good swing

By Coleman Bentley
If you can’t keep up with the Spider-Man movie saga at this point, we don’t blame you. First there was the Tobey Maguire trilogy, then a pair of Andrew Garfield reboots no one asked for, and finally a 2015 deal which saw the Sony-owned character merge into Marvel’s Cinematic Universe (home of the Avengers & Foes) with little-known UK actor Tom Holland taking on the role of Peter Parker. Last summer, Holland made his full-length debut as Spidey in Spider-Man: Homecoming—a John Hughes-ian coming-of-age comedy wedged into the skeleton of a pyrotechnic superhero flick that was way better than it had any right to be—and while he acquitted himself well on-screen, it’s not his acting chops we’re here to drool over. It’s actually his swing.

According to Holland, the video—which he posted on Instagram on Sunday night—was shot during some downtime on the set of Homecoming and, to be honest, we’re pretty impressed. Good balance, nice tempo, and just look at the traj. Oh, and yeah, he’s doing this in the dark in a spandex jumpsuit while wearing a full mask. Sure, Thor can probably crush it 10 yards longer and Captain America has “Ryder Cup Hero” written all over him, but for your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man, this isn’t half bad at all.

P.S. If you ever need a fourth at Pine Ridge, Tom, just give us a shout.

Great round with @oli3vans at pine ridge. Thanks @crown_g0lf for helping us out.
