During an appearance on Netflix’s The Chef Show, Tom Holland revealed he began work on Captain America: Civil War just four days after landing the role of Spider-Man.
After Marvel Studio and Sony announced the landmark deal that would see the companies co-producing new Spider-Man films set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, a worldwide search was launched to find a young actor to portray the MCU’s version of the wall-crawler in time for the character’s debut in Captain America: Civil War. Eventually, Tom Holland was cast as the new Spider-Man, but the actor had little time in between landing the role and arriving on set to being work in third Captain America film.
While sitting down for dinner with Jon Favreau, chef Roy Choi, Robert Downey Jr., Kevin Feige, and the Russo Brothers in an episode of The Chef Show, Tom Holland was asked by the Marvel Studios president if he could recall how fast he started working on Captain America: Civil War after landing the Spider-Man role, to which the actor replied:
“It was like four days or something like that.”
While the rest of the dinner guests seemed to be surprised by Tom Holland’s response, Kevin Feige affirmed the Captain America: Civil War star’s comment by saying it was the “fastest turnaround ever.”

Veteran X-Men producer Simon Kinberg makes his directorial debut with Dark Phoenix in addition to producing the film with Hutch Parker, Lauren Schuler Donner and Todd Hallowell.

X-Men: Dark Phoenix stars James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Tye Sheridan, Sophie Turner, Alexandra Shipp, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Evan Peters, and Jessica Chastain. Here's the film's synopsis:
“This is the story of one of the X-Men’s most beloved characters, Jean Grey, as she evolves into the iconic DARK PHOENIX. During a life-threatening rescue mission in space, Jean is hit by a cosmic force that transforms her into one of the most powerful mutants of all. Wrestling with this increasingly unstable power as well as her own personal demons, Jean spirals out of control, tearing the X-Men family apart and threatening to destroy the very fabric of our planet. The film is the most intense and emotional X-Men movie ever made. It is the culmination of 20 years of X-Men movies, as the family of mutants that we’ve come to know and love must face their most devastating enemy yet — one of their own.”
Dark Phoenix is set to hit theaters on June 7, 2019. Stay tuned to Heroic Hollywood for the latest news on the future of the X-Men.
