Tom Holland previewed Spider-Man Homecoming on Tuesday’s “GMA.” Watch the video below!

As Gossip Cop has reported, Holland stars as the web slinger in a new reboot of the comic book franchise. His appearance on “Good Morning America” got off to a funny start when Robin Roberts revealed the actor didn’t realize the show was live. But he handled the pressure just fine.

“It really blew me away,” Holland said of seeing the finished film for the first time. “The best was my dad. My dad doesn’t like superhero movies at all, and he was like close to tears. ‘I’m so proud of you! It’s so good!’ So it was an amazing experience to see it.”

And while Holland can’t leap between buildings without the help of special effects, he does feel connected to Spider-Man’s alter ego, Peter Parker. “I think that’s why I loved Spider-Man so much growing up. It’s that I can relate to him on a personal level because I was also going to high school. I was also struggling talking to girls, struggling with homework. Honestly, I’m as far from smooth that you can imagine.”

Holland’s gymnastics training for his role in a production of Billy Elliot came in handy when he wanted to audition for Spider-Man, with the 21-year-old revealing, “All I did was send them videos of me doing backflips.” He even did a flip for the producers at his eighth and final try-out. Ironically, he didn’t injure himself during any stunts, but tore his ACL carrying a bag towards the end of the shoot.

The morning show’s hosts also brought up Holland’s impressive “Lip Sync Battle” performance, and encouraged him to do an on-the-spot dance with fellow guest Nick Carter. “We could always use Spider-Man in a boy band,” the Backstreet Boys member joked. Carter then taught him (what else?) the iconic dance to “Everybody (Backstreet’s Back).” As Gossip Cop reported, Holland’s Spider-Man co-star Zendaya was on “GMA” last week.
