Tom Holland recently celebrated a real-life superhero on the set of “Spider-Man: No Way Home”.
In July 2020, Bridger Walker, who was only 6 years old at the time, saved his little sister from a dog attack outside their home in Cheyenne, Wyoming.
He was hit by the dog and underwent an operation that required more than 90 stitches. When asked by his father, Robert Walker, why he jumped between his little sister and the animal, Bridger reportedly told him, “If someone should die, I think it should be me.”
At the time, Bridger’s family stated that he is a fan of the Avengers, leading actors from the series, including Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Robert Downey Jr., and Chris Evans, to praise his bravery. Holland offered to bring him to the set of “Spider-Man”.
Robert Walker posted on Instagram over the weekend that Holland had kept that promise, and invited Bridger and his family to the set.
“When we first got to the set, I was a bit worried that once the curtain was ‘pulled’, the magic of the movies would be lost on the kids,” Walker wrote. “It was the other way around!”
He said Bridger got a chance to “swing on the web with his hero” and thanked Holland, his co-star Zendaya, and all the cast and crew who were “willing to stop a very busy day of shooting to make my little boy smile”. He added that the film’s cast and crew “made our kids feel like stars”.
