Just kidding -- it's not a competition.
Stan Lee shared some sweet and inspiring Spidey thoughts over the weekend, starting with praise for the Marvel Cinematic Universe's Peter Parker/Spider-Man star.
British actor Tom Holland, now 21, made his MCU debut in "Captain America: Civil War" before starring in his first solo movie, "Spider-Man: Homecoming." He's now co-starring with half the planet -- emphasis on half -- in "Avengers: Infinity War."
I think @TomHolland1996 is a great Spider-Man. He is the exact height and age I envisioned when I first wrote Spider-Man. Spidey was never supposed to be too large. How is my friend Tom doing?— stan lee (@TheRealStanLee) May 19, 2018
Tom replied, calling the 95-year-old "bud":
Thanks very much Stan. It all started with you sir. Looking forward to catching up soon bud https://t.co/KbF5HSxJAo— Tom Holland (@TomHolland1996) May 20, 2018
Stan Lee wasn't done, and shared this Spider-Man note:
Never give up on your dreams! When I first wrote Spider-Man my publisher said I was crazy because people hate spiders and insects and he was not going to publish it. But I never gave up, until it was published.— stan lee (@TheRealStanLee) May 19, 2018
It's hard to picture a world before Spider-Man arrived in 1962. But yeah -- that must've been some pitch meeting. Then again, you could say that for most comic book characters.
"Avengers: Infinity War" gave Peter Parker an interesting little storyline, and we don't know what will happen next for him in "Avengers 4." However, we do know he has "Spider-Man: Homecoming 2" scheduled for July 2019.
