While Thor and Spider-Man haven't had much of a chance to interact in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Chris Hemsworth personally offered his assistance to get Tom Holland cast as the MCU's friendly neighborhood web-slinger.
While at the red carpet premiere of his latest film Men in Black: International, Hemsworth revealed that after working with Holland previously in Ron Howard's In the Heart of the Sea, he called Marvel Studios to recommend his co-star for the part of Spider-Man.
"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 and said he's one of the most talented people I've worked with and has such a big heart and appreciation," Hemsworth told Entertainment Tonight. "I don't know, we have a great friendship, it's a good mutual respect."
In a bit of cross-promotion, Hemsworth and Holland interviewed each other for Men in Black: International and Spider-Man: Far From Home, showing off their mutual chemistry while asking each other about their latest films.
Opening July 2, director Jon Watts’ Spider-Man: Far From Home stars Tom Holland, Samuel L. Jackson, Zendaya, Cobie Smulders, Jon Favreau, JB Smoove, Jacob Batalon and Martin Starr, with Marisa Tomei and Jake Gyllenhaal.
