Filming may have wrapped, but Tom Holland still does whatever a spider can.

Spider-Man: Homecoming director Jon Watts shared a behind-the-scenes video showing the actor performing facial capture for the role, and judging by Holland's work, it's for an action sequence.

"And this felt weird when I was in the costume," Holland, wearing a t-shirt rather than Spidey's spandex, says with a laugh — before showing off a trademark webslinging move.

Holland recently revealed in a The Hollywood Reporter cover story that he is signed on for six Marvel Cinematic Universe films — including three solo films and three other appearances (such as in this summer's Captain America: Civil War). He also opened up about what his Peter Parker brings to the MCU.

"I think the biggest difference is his youth and innocence," he said.

Marvel's and Sony's Spider-Man: Homecoming opens July 7, 2017.
