Chris Hemsworth 'made a call' to land Tom Holland 'Spider-Man' role

Tom Holland

That's what Tom Holland's Peter Parker does in a Spider-Man: Far From Home parody sketch from Jimmy Kimmel Live, where the Queens native goes to pick up his red and black costume from Kimmel, who plays Joe, a Mets fan with a reputation for being "the best and most gullible dry cleaner in all of NY". "He's one of the most talented people I've worked with and has such a big heart and appreciation".

"I mean, look, we worked on In the Heart of the Sea together, obviously, then through Avengers and as they were casting him for Spider-Man, I did what I could do and made a call", the Australian-born actor shared. "I don't know, we have a great friendship, it's a good mutual respect".

The video is pretty amusing as Chris Hemsworth asks where is Thor in Spider-Man: Far From Home, with Tom Holland also stating his movie follows the biggest movie of all time, The Avengers: Endgame.

Told about his friend's caption by "Entertainment Tonight", he replied: "Aw, did he?"

One person on Twitter pointed out the stark difference between Marvel's previous IMAX posters for Ant-Man and the Wasp and Captain Marvel. "Well, he's my hero in life".

Hemsworth, 35, opened up about helping Holand, 22, out when it came to landing the role of Spider-Man. I was kind of obsessed with him. But this July could be a repeat of 2017 when the studio released both a highly-anticipated blockbuster with "Spider-Man: Homecoming" and an acclaimed original film with Edgar Wright's "Baby Driver", which grossed $107.8 million domestically.
