Daredevil’s Jon Bernthal Says Tom Holland Fought for Spider-Man Role in ‘Civil War’

With the release of the Civil War trailer that showcased the latest incarnation of Spider-Man, some fans are anticipating the film even more now, while others show great opposition to the first appearance of the MCU wall-crawler. However, a recent statement made by Daredevil‘s Jon Bernthal may cause some fans to switch over to team Spidey.

“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.”


With the release of season two of Daredevil, Bernthal’s rendition of the Punisher has been very well-received by the majority of viewers, so his words praising Holland might carry some weight and turn skeptics into believers. Of course, we have seen very little of Spidey so far, so we’ll just have to see how he fairs in Captain America: Civil War when it hits theaters on May 6th.
