Tom Holland Fought For Spider-Man Role According To Jon Bernthal

Jon Bernthal has become a part of the Marvel family and has been extremely well received for his role as The Punisher in Netflix’s Daredevil. Bernthal’s role in Daredevil was high profile, much like that of Tom Holland who will be playing Spider-Man in the upcoming Captain America: Civil War.

Bernthal and Holland recently worked together, Bernthal explained that Holland really had to work hard for this role and that despite his young age, he was one of the most impressive people in Hollywood today.

“I worked with Tom intensely in Ireland on the movie that we did; a group of us were all living in a remote part of Western Ireland, eating every meal together, on set all day with each other. And I got to tell you, in all my years in Hollywood, I’m probably more impressed with Tom Holland than anyone else I’ve ever met. For a guy his age, he’s a force of nature. I saw him go through the process of trying to win that role. He fought for it. He just went out and got it. That’s not an easy feat.”

“Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” finds Steve Rogers leading the newly formed team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. But after another incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability, headed by a governing body to oversee and direct the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers, resulting in two camps—one led by Steve Rogers and his desire for the Avengers to remain free to defend humanity without government interference, and the other following Tony Stark’s surprising decision to support government oversight and accountability. ”

Directed by Anthony and Joe Russo, Captain America: Civil War stars Chris Evans, Robert Downey, Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Jeremy Renner, Paul Bettany, Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Rudd, Chadwick Boseman, Tom Holland and many more. The movie hits theaters on May 6, 2016.
