And the REAL shortlist of the other five actors who wanted to be Spidey
Asa Butterfield, Judah Lewis, Matthew Lintz, Charlie Plummer and Charlie Rowe were the real fellow contenders of Tom Holland for the role. So Natt Wolff, Liam James, and Timothee Chalamet didn’t actually made the cut. And who suspected that neophyte Judah Lewis almost got the role?
And what does it take to actually watch the actors’ screen tests with Marvel superheroes Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Evans.
The six actors reportedly screen tested with Downey to know which actor has more chemistry with the Iron Man. And when it was all down to two (Holland and Rowe), Evans stepped in but Holland was the only one given the chance to screen test with him.
It’s all about chemistry and Holland aced the test.
