While fans have not seen any kind of promotional material featuring the young actor as the new Spider-Man, Holland was kind enough to give a sneak peek on his preparations.

Holland will be making his debut in “Captain America: Civil War” before having his own standalone movie that will still be part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe in 2017. While the new Spider-Man is yet to be seen even in the trailers of the upcoming film, the actor showed off on his official Instagram profile, teasing fans with his acrobatic skills.

In a previous interview with the Associated Press, Holland shared he won the role where he is described as “the perfect actor to bring Spider-Man’s story into the Marvel Cinematic Universe.”

“Well, I did my first audition tape with Joel Kinnaman I was shooting a really small indie film with him earlier in the year and they gave me two scenes and I had to do an ident, which is basically where you say, ‘Hi, my name is Tom Holland, I’m this, I’m this tall, I’m this old.’ And I basically did like a somersault into frame and then a somersault out of frame ’cause I basically I was like, they may never see this, but if they do I need them to know that I’ve got some gymnastics abilities and stuff, and every tape I sent in I always did a little acrobatic demo to try and convince them to give me the role.”

“Captain America: Civil War” will hit theaters on May 6. The untitled “Spider-Man” film will open on July 28, 2017.
