I am Chris Hardwick. I am on TV a lot and have a blog at nerdist.com. This podcast is basically just me talking about stuff and things with my two nerdy friends Jonah Ray and Matt Mira, and usually someone more famous than all of us. Occasionally we swear because that is fun. I hope you like it, but if you don't I'm sure you will not hesitate to unfurl your rage in the 'reviews' section because that's how the Internet works.

Get ready for the friendly neighborhoodSpider-Man! TheMarvel Cinematic Universe's new Spidey,Tom Holland, wasChris Hardwick's guest on the latest installment of the Nerdist Podcast. And together, they're spinning a web aboutSpider-Man: Homecoming. After sharing a funny story about the '70sSpider-ManTV series, Tom was quick to admit that most of his in-costume scenes were filmed in a motion capture studio. However, he stressed that it is almost always him in the costume. Tom also related the feeling of powerlessness he felt when his face was covered, before finding ways to convey his performance through the rest of his body. Chris and Tom also speak about the new tone used inSpider-Man: Homecoming, which plays a lot like a John Hughes movie. Although both Tom and Chris agreed that they would probably embrace a life of crime if they had superpowers. Tom went on to relate hisLip Sync Battleexperience, and how he felt when he had to "become" Rihanna. Amazingly, Tom hasn't had a chance to really process how much his life has changed since his first appearance as Spider-Man inCaptain America: Civil War. He also pointed out that the final movie would work as a high school comedy even if all of the Spider-Man scenes were cut out of it. Additionally, Tom recalls the time that he forgot to use an American accent in one of the scenes fromHomecoming. According to Tom, no one noticed it until he pointed it out. It's a long chat between Tom and Chris, so sit back, and enjoy!
