Here’s How The Punisher And Spiderman Helped Each Other

In the entertainment industry, there are many actors who are although competing for fame but have been gracious towards each other off-screen. In the MCU, there is cut-throat competition among actors as there is a limited number of Marvel properties on TV & Film but the host of superheroes vying for screen space.

The Punisher star Jon Bernthal recently revealed that he and Spiderman: Homecoming star Tom Holland have helped each other with audition tapes and land roles in respective TV & movie projects. Jon Bernthal landed the role of Frank Castle/ The Punisher in Marvel Netflix series Daredevil second season and is now working on a solo series based on the comic-book character.

Tom Holland made a debut as Peter Parker/Spiderman in the Captain America: Civil War which stunned the critics and audience alike. He will reprise the role of Spiderman in Homecoming and Avengers: Infinity War.


Variety confirmed that the two actors bonded over while filming their medieval adventure drama “Pilgrimage”. Bernthal revealed that he would read lines to Holland off-camera for his Spiderman audition tapes, while Holland was opposite the former Walking Dead star. Bernthal said in an interview:

“They use mock scenes, but it was a man telling this young boy about shooting a deer — describing the moment of killing a deer, I believe. We had to play that the deer was there and I see him getting ready to kill it. He was off camera and we were like, ‘get in here and do it with me.’”

He added:

“I can’t say enough good things about Tom. He’s got strength and talent and fortitude that’s not only remarkable for someone his age, but for someone period … We were all part of him nailing and tracking down the Spider-Man role. We got to see his determination. I’ve never seen anything like that — how hard he fought for it — and that’s how he approaches his work every day.”

Great to see such incredible friendship behind the camera between fellow actors.
