Spider-Man and Mysterio may clash as superhero and villain, but let it be known that, frankly, Tom Holland and Jake Gyllenhaal’s bromance transcends Peter Parker and MJ’s Spider-Man romance. Spider-Man: Far From Home officially hits theaters on July 2, offering fans a glimpse of Spider-Man across the pond in London, England after the chaotic events of Endgame. Gyllenhaal joins the Spider-Man universe as Mysterio, who, according to the film’s trailer, joins the elite group of Avengers. Perhaps the best part of Gyllenhaal’s casting, though, is the bromance he’s developed with his co-star Holland along the way.
According to Gyllenhaal, however, his relationship with Holland isn’t even a bromance, but a straight up romance. As the actor told Good Morning Britain in June, “It’s not even a bromance; it’s a straight romance.” So, let’s just call it what it is without heteronormative phrases: a romance, filled with the actors gushing about each other during press interviews, making appearances together at Disneyland and a children’s hospital, and impersonating one another.
Holland and Gyllenhaal’s beloved dynamic first emerged earlier this year. In a cast interview in April, Spider-Man: Far From Home director Jon Watts told Entertainment Weekly that the two got along on set so well that it affected the film’s production. “Sometimes they would crack each other up, and we could not get through takes occasionally,” Watts told EW. “It was a problem!” In the same interview, Holland revealed that he’s actually been wanting to work with Gyllenhaal for quite some time.
The worst part about Spider-Man: Far From Home’s arrival in theaters? The forthcoming absence of Holland and Gyllenhaal’s dynamic during press tours. To improvise Kanye: Peter Parker and MJ, I’m gonna let you finish, but Tom Holland and Jake Gyllenhaal have the best romance of all time.
Here is an amzing compilation of fuuniest bromance moments between Tom Holland-Jake Gyllenhaal and RDJ-Chris Evans. Enjoy! 🙂
