Chris Hemsworth 'made a call' to land Tom Holland 'Spider-Man' role

Tom recently admitted playing Spider-Man had fulfilled his childhood dreams because he was always "obsessed" with the superhero when he was growing up.

Variety reports that Sony's Marvel entry is expected to earn $154 million during its first six days of release, according to early estimates.

That's what Tom Holland's Peter Parker does in a Spider-Man: Far From Home parody sketch from Jimmy Kimmel Live, where the Queens native goes to pick up his red and black costume from Kimmel, who plays Joe, a Mets fan with a reputation for being "the best and most gullible dry cleaner in all of NY". If those clues create even half as much buzz as "Endgame" did, the word of mouth created by moviegoers who go see the film during the midweek holiday will only lead to even bigger turnouts during the weekend proper.

As Sony readies its final marketing push, estimates could likely increase, with some industry experts believing Far From Home's opening weekend numbers could reach as high as $180 million.

Now, a report by Global Times suggests that Huawei's Hongmeng OS will apparently be 60 percent faster than Android. Huawei has also scrapped a new laptop launch this week because of its current position on a USA trade blacklist.

And Chris admitted his admiration for Tom is just the same.

Jon Watts directed Spider-Man: Far From Home, which was written by Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers, all returning from Spider-Man: Homecoming.

Following the events of Avengers: Endgame, Spider-Man must step up to take on new threats in a world that has changed forever. But Spidey's vacation is cut short as he is visited by Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson), who informs him that the battle against Thanos has created dimensional chaos.
