Thor 3 star Chris Hemsworth received a stunt challenge from fellow Marvel superhero Spiderman Tom Holland.
There is rivalry brewing between the two superheroes – at least in terms of their stunt skills.
The Spiderman Homecoming star posted on Instagram a video of himself doing an aerial side flip, in which he called out to the Australian actor after he landed perfectly on the mat. “How’s that, Hemsworth?” Holland said in the video He also captioned the video “beat that.”
The clip appeared to be motivated by a video Hemsworth shared a few weeks ago. In the clip, the actor failed to do the same aerial flip.
Hemsworth has yet to respond to Holland’s challenge. However, his stunt trainer Bobby Holland Hanton, whom the Spiderman actor also tagged in the clip, responded with a new challenge to Holland.
Holland is known for his gymnastic abilities. These helped him prepare for his web-swinging action scenes. The actor made his debut as Spiderman in Captain America: Civil War. Thor did not appear in the movie. It is safe to assume that the two Avengers superheroes haven’t met yet. However, they might have their face-off in the Thor 3 movie.
The directors of the Marvel movies earlier teased that Spiderman might appear in the Thor 3 movie. Spiderman Homecoming director Jon Watts’ and Thor 3 director Taika Waititi’s exchange of tweets hinted of the possible appearance of Peter Parker in the Thor 3 movie. Waititi admitted on his tweet that he would need to borrow Holland for one or two scenes.
Hemsworth and Holland worked together in the 2015 film In the Heart of the Sea.
The two Marvel movies are currently filming in separate locations. Thor 3 is in Australia, while Spiderman is filming in Atlanta.
