Los Angeles, May 4 : Actor Tom Holland says that actors Chris Evans and Robert Downey Jr helped him justify the character of Spiderman in the forthcoming film “Captain America: Civil War”.
“At first it was pretty terrifying. But I was always in such good hands. I have been working with Chris and Robert very closely and they have helped me through every step of the way. They guided me on what I really needed to do in order to do justice to the character,” Holland said in a statement.
Downey Jr plays role of American superhero Iron Man, while Evans plays role of Captain America. The superheroes will be seen fighting against each other in “Captain America: Civil War”, which release in India and US on May 6.
Holland further revealed that he realised he was cast as Spiderman through the photo-sharing website Instagram.
“It was a crazy way to find out! I was playing golf with my dad and I had just lost so I was really sad. I had just come home and was looking at my Instagram when I saw that marvel had posted about Spiderman and mentioned ‘go to our website to find out who the new Spiderman is’” the 19-year-old said.
“I went to the website and I sort of slammed by computer screen without reading the entire article, that’s how nervous I was! But it said my name and it was the greatest day I’ve ever had,” he added.
Holland will debut as the American superhero in “Captain America: Civil War”, which will act as a teaser for the reboot of “Spider-Man”.
Sony Pictures Entertainment has teamed with Marvel Studios to produce the sixth movie in its franchise.
