Oh, Tom Holland. If you were anyone else, those would be fightin‘ words.
It was with some reluctant bravery the new Spider-Man star admitted in a recent interview with Yahoo! Movies he has never seen The Empire Strikes Back.
This is pretty egregious, but it is also wonderfully ironic since some of Spider-Man’s best lines in Capitan America: Civil War are when his character is explaining how taking out a Giant-Man will be like taking out an AT-AT on Hoth in “that really old movie.”
“I’m not a huge Star Wars fan,” Holland told Yahoo! Movies. “I am a fan of the new ones. I thought Rogue One and Force Awakens were dope … I just for some reason skipped the original Star Wars.”
Holland has seen the prequels, he admitted.
“And I’m even more embarrassed to say that I loved those movies when I was a kid,” said Holland. “Everyone’s like, ‘What? You liked those movies?!‘ But I thought they were great.”
Holland returns as the web slinger in the highly anticipated Spider-Man Homecoming, due out July 7.
