Tom Holland proved his real-life superhero skills during his most recent trip to New York City in order to promote the upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe tentpole “Spider-Man: Far From Home.” A video of the 23-year-old actor has earned over 1 million views and counting in less than a day for featuring the actor coming to the rescue of a young fan suffering a panic attack (via The Independent).

The video, posted by Twitter user @NamelessCass, finds Holland telling off a group of aggressive autograph hunters. The group were pushing their way to the front of a crowd in order to get Holland’s attention, but in doing so they were pushing the young fan up against the barricade.

“I’m gonna throw all your shit on the floor if you keep pushing that girl,” Holland tells the autograph hunters. The group allegedly did not stop pushing the fan, so Holland went ahead and threw some of their posters and books on the ground. The fan posted a photo of the “Spider-Man” swag Holland threw to the floor.

“Spider-Man: Far From Home” marks Holland’s second standalone MCU adventure following the success of 2017’s “Spider-Man: Homecoming.” Holland made his debut as the fan-favorite superhero in “Captain America; Civil War” and appeared as Peter Parker/Spider-Man in both “Avengers: Infinity War” and “Avengers: Endgame.”

Early buzz on “Spider-Man: Far From Home” is high, with critics praising the latest MCU entry as the perfect follow-up to “Endgame.” Reacting to the film on social media, IndieWire’s deputy editor-film Kate Erbland wrote the film is “wonderful, funny and clever and filled with smart twists.” Considering “Endgame” is the second highest-grossing film ever released, many box office pundits expect “Far From Home” to surpass the $880 million earned by “Homecoming.” The latest “Spider-Man” could even become Disney’s third billion-dollar grosser of 2019 after “Endgame” and “Captain Marvel.”

Disney is opening “Spider-Man: Far From Home” in theaters nationwide July 2.
