NATURAL ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION Hollywood actor Robert Downey Jr. heaped praise on rising British star Tom Holland at the European premiere of "Captain America: Civil War" in London on Tuesday (April 26). The "Iron Man" star said he was impressed by the 19-year-old actor who takes on the role of Spider-Man in the film. The new movie sees Marvel's usually friendly super heroes split. Chris Evans' Captain America fights for superheroes to govern themselves and goes head to head with his former ally, Robert Downey Jr.'s Iron Man, who wants the heroes to be governed by the United Nations. Featuring a wide range of characters, including Jeremy Renner's Hawkeye and Anthony Mackie's Falcon, the movie has been largely well received by the critics so far. Holland said he had a "great time" working with the cast, and that he was excited to attend the London premiere, which took place in the large Westfield shopping mall -- where he said he used to buy jeans. "Captain America: Civil War" is out in international theaters this week and in U.S. theaters on May 6.
