18 Emotions We All Go Through With A New Spider-Man Casting

Tom Holland's gonna be great, sure. But, like, why?

Posted on
He represents the everyman, but he represents the underdog and those marginalized who come up against great prejudice which I, as a middle-class straight, white man, don't really understand so much. And when Stan Lee first wrote and created this character, the outcast was the computer nerd, was the science nerd, was the guy that couldn't get the girl. Those guys now run the world. So how much of an outcast is that version of Peter Parker anymore? That's my question.

Did he direct Fright Night?

I'm dying with all the congrats for landing the Spider-Man role. Lol. Wish I wasn't the old Tom Holland.

Wait, is this him just like casually doing a backflip?

Goddammit, this kid's gonna charm me like a goddamn cupcake acrobat, isn't he?

And yet even in his adorableness I still can't quite get the sting to go away?

BUT WHEN WILL YOUNG WHITE GUYS HAVE A CHANCE TO PLAY THE MAN MADE OF SPIDERS

Sorry Tom Holland this isn't your fault. But you know.
