Tom Holland Teams Up With 'Avengers' Director Duo Russo Brothers For 'Cherry'

Anthony and Joe Russo have cast Tom Holland for another project called 'Cherry', based on a true-life incidents.

Marvel's final Avengers film is going to release in April and the fans cannot wait for its release. While that happens, Marvel is deciding on its future plans and projects that will come after Avengers ends. The directors Anthony and Joe Russo have been working on their upcoming projects where they will be introducing new characters from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. 

Now the directors are teaming up again with Tom Holland who first appeared as Spider-Man in 'Captain America: Civil War' and then 'Spider-Man: Homecoming'. This year will also mark the release of 'Spider-Man: Far From Home'. Apart from this, Russo Brothers have cast the actor for true-life story based project called 'Cherry', as reported by Screen Rant



After Peter Parker became the victim of Thanos deadly snap that wiped everyone out of the universe in 'Avengers: Infinity War', he is still listed in the credits of 'Avengers: Endgame'. According to a report by Deadline, the film is based on a book with the same title, 'Cherry'. The book was written by Nico Walker. 

The story of the film will follow an Iraq war Army medic who is going through an undiagnosed Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and eventually gets addicted to opioid pills. The story takes a drastic turn when he starts robbing banks and gets imprisoned. The author of the book is currently awaiting his release from prison, which is in 2020. 



After working on major superhero films, it looks like the Russo brothers want to take time off and work on a different kind of project. This film could have a lot of emotional stakes as it tackles a very important subject of PTSD of a soldier returning from war. After playing Spider-Man, Tom Holland too will be seen playing a totally different role than a fantasy superhero. 

If Holland is able to perform well for the role,  the actor might even get other films of the same genre where intense acting is required to create the right kind of emotional effect on the viewers. The upcoming 'Spider-Man: Far From Home' is going to come out this year.  The fans are excited to see another adventurous tale of the amazing Spider-Man. 



The film will show Peter Parker, played by Holland, going on a vacation to Europe. Just when he thought he wouldn't need his suit there, Nick Fury shows up at his hotel room, followed by him suiting up to beat the evil Mysterio from causing destruction across the continent. The film is directed by Jon Watts. According to HeroicHollywood, Tom spoke about the trailer release of the film in a live-stream interview. 

“We debuted the new Spider-Man: Far From Home trailer just for you guys exclusively because sometimes we just want to show our support, and you guys have been so amazing to us ever since I got this job. And I guess we just wanted to come and say thank you really and that was our way for Marvel and Sony to say thank you. And I hope you enjoyed it. We loved it,” he said.



The actor went through intense training for 'Spider-Man: Homecoming'. It included him going undercover to understand the role he was going to play.  "Yeah, it’s funny. Marvel actually sent me to a school in the Bronx where I had a fake name, and I put on an accent, and I went for like three days. I basically had to go to this science school and blend in with all the kids, and some of the teachers didn’t even know, "Holland told SlashFilm

"It was a science school, and I am in no way a science student [laughter]. Some of the teachers would call me up in front of the class and try to get me to do science equations and stuff – it was so embarrassing. But it was actually really informative because schools in London are so different. I would go to school every day in a suit and tie, with just boys. To be in a school where you can be free and let loose, and be with girls, it was so different. Like SO different. But yeah, it was a really great experience, " he added. 



Tom even revealed how he went interviewing people about new Spider-Man that appeared in 'Avengers: Civil War', which he played. People praised him right in front of him and failed to recognize the actor.

"Nobody knew. I actually have videos on my phone of me interviewing people, and asking them what they thought of the new Spider-Man in the Civil War film. They were like, Oh he’s great, I love him, and then some people were like, Nah, I don’t love him, he’s not great – and I was standing right in front of them! [laughter] But yeah, no, it was fun. It was really fun," he said.
