Excited children and even parents took the chance to take a few selfies with Spider-Man in his new suit as he signed autographs and posed with the happy crowd. Holland follows in the footsteps of his fellow Marvel superhero stars*.

Holland is currently filming Spider-Man: Homecoming in Atlanta and decided to take the day off from the set to make some very special kids happy – what a great guy. In a short interview, Holland explained what Spider-Man means to him – relating excerpt can be read below.
“Spider-Man has always been such a huge part of my life, a real eye-opener for me is – I was shooting in Colombia in the jungle with [director] James Gray and there was a little kid in the jungle running around with Spider-Man shoes on. So there isn’t a corner of the Earth that Spider-Man hasn’t made his way to.”
