Parker as Spider-Man from Captain America: Civil War.

Parker from Civil War.

Peter Benjamin Parker, also known as Spider-Man, is a fictional character in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. He is played by Tom Holland.

Parker acts as the vigilante Spider-Man in his hometown of Queens, New York. When not fighting crime, he has to contend with attending Midtown School of Science and Technology.

His ambition was to be an Avenger, with his idol and mentor being co-founder and current leader, Tony Stark (Iron Man), but after defeating the Vulture, he turned it down as he had become comfortable where he was in his life. But when Thanos and his followers came to Earth, Stark made him an official Avenger. He ended being a victim of Thanos using the combined power of the Infinity Stones to cut down half the universe's population to maintain order, with Parker disintegrating as a result. Five years later, the surviving Avengers managed to undo this.
