Spider-Man Star Tom Holland Reveals What He Learned From Robert Downey Jr.


’s days throughout the Marvel Cinematic Universe are numbered for the second. The star not too long ago talked about how his on-screen mentor Robert Downey Jr. turned his real-life mentor as effectively at Fan X 2019. Spider-Man is again within the Sony fold with out Marvel Studios management after negotiations fell aside to restructure a income cut up. Amid all of that drama, Holland spent a while with the Iron Man actor to take pleasure in himself.

Those Instagram photos led to the Internet questioning if there was some kind of message being despatched by the 2 actors. It seems, probably not, however that does not imply that Holland hasn’t been making an attempt to glean every thing attainable from Downey. The youthful actor talked in regards to the kinds of classes that his Avengers: Endgame co-star has been capable of cross alongside, and the way a lot which means to him.

“Sometimes you don’t need to ask for advice. You can just take a step back and watch people you admire,” Holland started. “The amazing thing about RDJ is that he’s arguable the most famous movie star on the planet. The biggest movie star on the planet, you know? But, he’s always early, he knows every crew member’s name, he always knows his lines. He’s professional, he’s kind, he’s caring.”

“I was sick on set one day and I don’t even know the guy. He was like, ‘Come to my trailer and I’ll make you feel better…” Holland continued. “He kind of talked to me and took me under his wing a little bit. Entering the Marvel Universe is daunting, it’s a big process. I mean, sitting in front of 5,000 people, this is something you normally do. That’s on a regular day occurrence. The thing I’ve learned from him, [Chris] Evans, Scarlet [Johansson] is that just because you’re at the top, doesn’t mean you can be a dick.”


Sage phrases, albeit a bit crudely put, however the message is honest in quite a few methods. Downey was probably the most recognizable face within the MCU after starring within the first of those motion pictures. Conducting your self with grace and poise goes a great distance in sustaining an extended profession. Iron Man wasn’t the beginning of Downey’s journey, and it will not be the final, however it’s going to take a while to get used to the actor to not be round for these team-ups.

Spider-Man will not be attending any of the Avengers’ massive dust-ups with super-villains anytime quickly both. In the large roll-out for Marvel Phase 4, the character wasn’t talked about for any solo motion pictures. To make issues worse for Marvel followers, it would not sound like Sony is just too eager on strolling again to the bargaining desk any time quickly. Now, everybody has to return to phrases with neither the mentor or his protege being round of their favourite motion pictures.
