Tom Holland is looking forward to "hiding behind a mask" as Spider-Man.

The 19-year-old actor was cast as the iconic superhero earlier this year and has revealed he's excited to be playing one of Marvel's most distinctive characters.

He said: "I think one of the most interesting things about Peter Parker for us is that he's the only person in the MCU now that has a secret identity, so we all know who everyone else is.

"I think it's quite interesting to go back to that hiding behind a mask."

Tom also revealed how deep-rooted his love of the character is.

He told SuperheroHype: "I have always been a huge fan of Spider-Man, and growing up, I had countless Spider-Man costumes, only two years ago did I go to a fancy dress party dressed as Spider-Man.

"I had this awesome morph suit where you can put your phone on your chest and spiders would crawl across the costume, it was awesome!

"He's always been a big part of my life and a big part of boys' lives because everybody can relate to him."

Tom will make his debut as Spider-Man in 'Captain America: Civil War', which is set for release next year.

When world leaders demand that the Avengers operate under UN supervision, the team splits. If you haven't seen previous instalments it will make no sense, but if you have, all the plot points bear bittersweet fruit, in a brilliant combination of hectic action and one liners with intimate, heartbreaking moments.
