All superhero fans across the globe are desperately waiting for Spider-Man: Homecoming to hit the theaters. The next installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe takes forward the story of the teenage superhero, whom we all came to love in Captain America: Civil War. Well, Indian fans now have another reason to look forward to the release of Spider-Man: Homecoming. Our very own Tiger Shroff will be voicing the Spider-Man/Peter Parker in the Hindi version of the movie, for the Indian audience. The actor made the announcement in a video posted by Sony Pictures India. He says that he is "blessed" and "lucky enough" to be taking up the opportunity. Spider-Man: Homecoming is slated to release on July 7.
If you remember, Tiger has had his own share of superheroism. He starred in A Flying Jatt, in which he played a clumsy superhero. The movie failed to perform at the box office, and was a critical failure as well. While promoting the film, Tiger had expressed during a media interaction that his personal favourite superhero is Spider-Man. "Since childhood, I have been a fan of Spider-Man because, according to me, he has the maximum humanity; he is very human, very mortal. So he even gets hurt. He has a poor background, but when he wears the costume, he forgets all of that, all the pressures of the society on him," he said. Well, isn't it great news that he gets to voice for his favourite?
We also have to notice the emerging trend of signing a Bollywood star to voice for characters in Hindi for Hollywood films. Most recently Arshad Warsi dubbed for Jack Sparrow...sorry Captain Jack Sparrow, in Pirates of the Caribbean: Salazar's Revenge. Before that Varun Dhawan had dubbed for Captain America in Civil War.
Spider-Man: Homecoming reboots the Spidey movies after the colossal failure of The Amazing Spider Man 2, headlined by Andrew Garfield. The studios are also done with telling the origin story of the superhero, and instead now tell how Spider-Man sprung into action and found his calling, with a little help from Iron Man, Tony Stark.
