After months of speculation and fans begging to have their favorite male stars put on that Spider-Man suit (hello Dylan O’Brien!), we’ve finally been introduced to our new super hero star!

Tom Holland has landed the role of Peter Parker – a.k.a. Spider-Man – in the brand new franchise! Sony Pictures Motion Pictures Group Chairman, Tom Rothman, spoke about the casting choice in a statement, saying, “It’s a big day here at Sony. Kevin, Amy and their teams have done an incredible job. The Marvel process is very thorough, and that’s why their results are so outstanding. I’m confident Spider-Man will be no exception. I’ve worked with a number of up-and-coming directors who have gone on to be superstars and believe that Jon is just an outstanding talent. For Spidey himself, we saw many terrific young actors, but Tom’s screen tests were special. All in all, we are off to a roaring start.”

If you’re having any doubts about Tom as our new Spidey superhero, go ahead and check out these incredible stunts he posted on Instagram because the news was announced. It’s pretty darn impressive!

The new Spider-Man film, which will be directed by Jon Watts, is set to hit theaters on July 28, 2017!
