James Gunn: Tom Holland Is "Awesome" As Spider-Man in Captain America: Civil War


During a Facebook Live Q&A with fans, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 director James Gunn praised Captain America: Civil War, its directors Joe and Anthony Russo, and Spider-Man actor Tom Holland.

"I saw Civil War, and I think it's incredible," Gunn said in the video you can see below. "It's one of the best Marvel movies ever, and I can't believe what a wonderful job the Russo Brothers did, and the cast."

A few questions later, he was asked about Spider-Man, and while he said that he couldn't say much, he did enthuse about the actor.

"Tom Holland is off the charts awesome," Gunn said. "Off the charts. Truly. Hand to my heart, he's amazing."

    "Hands to my heart..." Wow! Coming from Gunn that means soooo much! I believe every word he said. I know, I know he's a Marvel director so you'd think he's being favorable towards the film , but Gunn's no ingratiator ,so... ;)

    What we can take from this is that everyone involved in the MCU praises everyone else involved in the MCU.
