In news that ensnares a small period drama about monks in the larger history of superhero franchises, Jon Bernthal recently revealed that he and Tom Holland helped each other tape auditions for the second season of Daredevil (as well as a possible spinoff) and Spider-Man (as well as Captain America: Civil War) while shooting the 13th-century-set Pilgrimage in Ireland. “During this independent movie that we did in Ireland we were constantly making tapes for Marvel — just acting together,” Bernthal told the New York Daily News. Bernthal is just one of Holland’s several super-pals, as he also got help from his In the Heart of the Sea co-star Chris Hemsworth, who put in a good word for the fellow sailor at the studio. Luckily, Holland’s debut has been well received, at least by Guardians of the Galaxy’s James Gunn, who tweeted that the newcomer is “the best Spidey/Peter Parker ever by a county mile.” Break out the still lives and Calvinism, because we’re entering the Golden Age of Holland.
