Several new videos circulating show Tom Holland on the set of Spider-Man: No Way Home, in his whole Spidey get-up, meeting a pretty big fan.
Bridger Walker just happened to have saved his sister from a vicious dog attack in 2020, when he was only six years old. The boy came to the rescue of his younger sister by jumping in front of a German Shepherd, ultimately needing 90 stitches on his face.
While other Avengers actors have called Bridger up to salute him, Spidey fans can now see the love that Holland and co-star Zendaya showed him after the incident.
On the set of the film that has since grossed $253 million in its opening weekend, Holland took some time to greet Walker, now 7, and even let him try on the mask and do his best Spidey pose as Zendaya watched.
Another video shows Bridger and Holland—who invited him to set last year—web-swing through the sky via a coordinated stunt, and even taking a selfie mid-air. Needless to say, the boy looked very happy to be spending his day with another hero.
Robert Walker, Bridger’s father, opened up about the experience of meeting Holland and Zendaya, and the kindness the pair showed all of his kids on set.
In an Instagram post, Robert said he was nervous the on-set magic wouldn’t be the same for the kids behind the scenes as it is when they watch the films, but he revealed that Holland was a good sport, even waving at the kids from up above.
“A short time later, Tom and Zendaya came over. I will never forget the grace and kindness they showed our children,” Robert wrote. “Zendaya immediately approached my teenage daughter and told her how much she loved her nails. 💗💅 I don’t know if she will ever know how much that simple act means to me—to see my sweet daughter light up with self-confidence and joy… Thank you again to everyone who played some role in Bridger’s special day ‘hanging’ with Spider-Man.”
