There's only a couple of weeks more before "Spider-Man: Homecoming" finally hits theaters and the cast are already busy promoting the film ahead of its release. It will be interesting to see how the "Spider-Man" universe expands now that he's part of the Avengers and will return to "Avengers: Infinity War" next year. Tom Holland, who plays the young Peter Parker turned superhero, first flexed his muscles in last year's "Captain America: Civil War," and is set to star in his standalone film (with the support of Robert Downey Jr.'s Iron Man) this July. "Homecoming" will be followed by two more films, and Sony is also set to create "Venom" with Tom Hardy as the titular character.

Speaking of Hardy, Holland recently had some good words to say about the actor while the former was doing press for "Homecoming."

Tom Hardy as the villain 'Venom'

Back in May, The Hollywood Reporter revealed that Tom Hardy was cast as the titular character in the upcoming Sony outing. The upcoming movie is set for an October 5, 2018, release, and is set to be directed by "Zombieland" helmer Ruben Fleischer.

The script is written by Scott Rosenberg and Jeff Pinkner, with Pinkner not being a stranger to the franchise, as he was part of "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" back in 2014. However, they are not part of the upcoming "Spider-Man: Homecoming," which is a partnership between Sony and Marvel Studios.

Tom Holland thinks Tom Hardy will play the character with 'a lot of energy'

"Spider-Man: Homecoming" star Tom Holland may not be involved in "Venom," but he has nothing but good words for Tom Hardy, who is set to star in the villain superhero film releasing next year. As per Screenrant, the 21-year old actor told YouTube that "It’s very exciting.

I think Tom Hardy will really play that character with, you know, a lot of energy, a lot of life."

Zendaya praises Tom Holland

Tom Holland isn't the only "Spider-Man: Homecoming" individual praising their co-universe stars. In fact, Zendaya, who plays Michelle in the upcoming Sony-Marvel outing, also had some good words for Holland. She gushed to Entertainment Weekly how hardworking Holland really is, and because her character was more present in the high school side of the story, she wasn't really aware of how good a job he did as the titular superhero.

Additionally, she admitted, "I think the most important thing to me is that he is a good person, and it’s good to know that the person who gets to play your favorite superhero is actually a nice dude."

Fans will finally get to see Tom Holland as Peter Parker in "Spider-Man: Homecoming" this July 7.
