Spider-Man: Far From Home star Tom Holland put the hard word on a group of grown-up autograph hunters that were crushing a young female fan during the upcoming film's press tour.

Twitter user @NamelessCass uploaded footage of the frightening moment she found herself trapped in the middle of a throng of "grown men" pushing her, before Holland came to her rescue.

"I'm going to throw your shit on the floor if you keep pushing that girl," he can be heard telling the crowd.

"Guys, I'm literally going to have a panic attack!" the girl yells.

"Hey, it's okay, I got you, I got you," Holland tells her in a real-life super hero moment, before instructing the autograph hunters - sometimes known as 'graphers' -  to "back up".

"My neck was literally against the barricade with 30 grown men behind me pushing...." the user captioned the footage.

"Ridiculous how people act, like, you're not only endangering fans safety but Tom's as well. This was absolutely INSANE and should NEVER happen...."

Holland's Spider-Man joined the Marvel cinematic universe in 2016, featuring in Captain America: Civil War before starring in Spider-Man: Homecoming in 2017.
