As if being cast as Spider-Man wasn't exciting enough, star Tom Holland says his experience working on Marvel Studios' next major film has him even more stoked to don the webs in 2016.

Tom Holland Reveals How He Learned He Landed Spider-Man Role

In a recent interview promoting his current film, "In The Heart of the Sea," Holland said filming his first taste of superheroics in "Captain America: Civil War" has only served to heighten his desire to relaunch the iconic hero in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

"Civil War will be a brilliant movie, a huge movie and I'll have the support of the success of that movie so that I can go on to my own," the star told the Belfast Telegraph. "It was also a real eye-opener to what it will be like when I start my film. I think the problem with 'Civil War' for me was that it made me 10 times more excited to start on 'Spider-Man,' but we don't start for months, so I've got to sit on that excitement for the moment."

Holland's Spider-Man/Peter Parker will appear in 2016's "Civil War," although it's still a mystery just how big his part will be in the film as Spider-Man has been noticeably absent from trailers and promo art for the movie. Spider-Man's next film, directed by Jon Watts, arrives in theaters July 28, 2017.
