Mumbai: Shubman Gill, the exceptional cricketer who showcased remarkable performance in this year's IPL, is set to lend his voice to the character of Pavitr Prabhakar in the highly anticipated animated film 'Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse'. In addition to this exciting news, Gill recently disclosed his personal preference for his favourite Spider-Man, choosing among the talented actors Tobey Maguire, Andrew Garfield, and Tom Holland.

Not just this, he also shared his memories of 'Spiderman' films as a kid and how imitated the action scenes from the films.

The cricketer said: "Tobey Maguire is my favourite Spiderman. I have so many memories of those films but I remember the first time I watched 'Spiderman' starring Tobey Maguire, there was this scene where Spiderman spins a web around Green Goblin, pulls him closer and then kicks him."

"That's something I have imitated with my friends so much, not really kicking them but recreating the scene. I even used to climb through the gaps in the door and my mom used to yell at me because she was scared that I would fall," he added.

Sony Pictures Entertainment India will release 'Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse' in cinemas on June 1, 2023, in English, Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, Malayalam, Gujarati, Marathi, Punjabi and Bengali.
