Tom Holland recently celebrated a real-life superhero on the set of â€œSpider-Man: No Way Home.â€
In July 2020, Bridger Walker, who was just 6 years old at the time, saved his little sister from a dog attack outside their Cheyenne, Wyoming, home.
He was mauled by the dog and underwent surgery that required more than 90 stitches. Asked by his dad, Robert Walker, why he jumped between his little sister and the animal, Bridger reportedly told him, â€œIf someone had to die, I thought it should be me.â€
At the time, Bridgerâ€™s family mentioned that heâ€™s an Avengers fan, prompting actors from the franchise, including Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Evans, to praise his bravery. Holland offered to bring him on the â€œSpider-Manâ€ set.
Robert Walker posted on Instagram over the weekend that Holland had delivered on that promise, inviting Bridger and his family to the set.
â€œWhen we first arrived on set, I was a little apprehensive that once the â€œcurtain was pulled backâ€ that the magic of the movies would be lost for the kids,â€ Walker wrote. â€œThe opposite was true!â€
He said Bridger even got a chance to â€œweb swing with his heroâ€ and thanked Holland, his co-star Zendaya and all the cast and crew who were â€œwilling to stop a very busy day of shooting to make my little boy smile.â€ He added that the movieâ€™s entire cast and crew â€œmade our kids feel like stars.â€
