Spider-Man star Tom Holland has paid tribute to the late co-creator of the legendary Marvel Comics super hero.

The 22-year-old actor took to his Twitter to write a note in tribute to Steve Ditko, who created the teenaged web-slinger along with Stan Lee back in the 1960s.

"We all want to leave our mark on the world – this guy crushed it. He made so many people so happy and changed lives - most of all, mine! Thank you Steve - your life lives on man, thank you," he wrote.

Ditko, a reclusive comic book artist who also co-created Marvel’s Doctor Strange, was found dead in his New York City apartment on June 29th, according to The Hollywood Reporter. He was 90 years old.

Tom Holland is currently filming Spider-Man: Far From Home, the sequel to Spider-Man: Homecoming.
