In a last year’s interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Spider-Man: No Way Home actor, Tom Holland talks about his experience working with co-star, Charlie Cox in the movie. He shared, 

“Working with Charlie was incredibly exciting. I was a big fan of the Daredevil series, and I think he’s a fantastic actor.”

Cox reprised his role of Matt Murdock/ Daredevil in the movie and his small cameo appearance surely excited the fandom. The Crowded Room star further added,

“He’s done a wonderful job with that character, and albeit it was a small cameo, it obviously teased the future of what could be. It was a real actors’ piece, that scene. We blocked the scene, which was essentially us just sitting there, and we read the lines.”

He continued, 

“It was great. It felt like an actors’ workshop while working with people I really look up to, and Charlie was a lot of fun. It was really cool to see him snap back into a character that I am really a fan of and that he has a lot of love for, obviously.”

Given that Holland too is a fan of Daredevil, working with the actor made the work even more exciting. Given that the character holds great potential, the web-slinger actor also hoped for a future collaboration. 

Meanwhile, his bond with his on-off-screen mentor, Robert Downey Jr. seemed to have grown a lot as he also watched the Iron Man actor’s box-office flop movie, Dolittle.

Developing camaraderie as actors work together on set is not something new. However, Holland and Downey Jr. share a great on-screen chemistry. While the latter’s character has been laid to rest, he kept his acting passion ignited by trying his hands on various other projects.

Dolittle is his first film after he having kept off his superhero suit for several years now. However, the movie eventually became a box-office failure with a reported loss of $50–100 million. It was even nominated for six Golden Raspberry Awards, including Worst Picture. However, that didn’t affect his junior’s intentions of watching the movie. After all, Holland has a deep love and respect for his mentor.
