The announcement of actor Tom Holland as the new Spider-Man has been met with Batfleck-level vitriol on social media — mostly just because he's white.
And though we would totally like to see more diversity in our superhero movies, we're not sure all this loathing should be leveled at Tom.

The young actor has earned acclaim for his work so far and he may end up proving perfect for the role.
If you're still not convinced, maybe some of the amazing acrobatics videos he posts on his Instagram will change your mind!
See Tom do everything a Spider can and more (below)!

Not bad, eh??
We wonder if he'll be doing his own stunts…
Spider-Man will make his debut in 2016's Captain America: Civil War.
