Tom Holland is a man of his word.
He promised a little boy who saved his sister from a dog attack in 2020 that the young Spider-Man fan could visit the Spider-Man: No Way Home set and he did just that.
Bridger Walker was just six years old when he jumped into action to save his four-year-old sister.
The siblings were playing outside their Wyoming home when a German shepherd mix charged toward Walker’s sister and he intervened.
He subsequently underwent a two-hour surgery that required more than 90 stitches, according to his family in a statement to CNN at the time of the July 2020 incident.
Celebrities like Anne Hathaway, Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo and Holland sent messages both on social media and privately to Walker, praising him for his courage.
Holland invited him to do some real-life web slinging.
Walker’s father shared images and a video from the set visit, along with a heart-warming message, explaining how the star “delivered” on his promise.
“When we first arrived on set, I was a little apprehensive that once the ‘curtain was pulled back’ that the magic of the movies would be lost for the kids. The opposite was true!” he began, adding that the entire case and crew made the kids “feel like stars”.
“They don’t just act the part of friendly neighborhood heroes – that’s what they truly are,” he wrote.
“The look on the kids’ faces was priceless when we rounded the blue-screen to see Tom, in full costume, high above the set on a light post. It was emotional to see him waive [sic] at the kids like he was the one that was supposed to be excited – not the other way around.”
In one post, Walker is seen doing a stunt with Holland who is dressed in his Spider-Man suit. Watch a snippet above, or visit Bridger Walker’s YouTube page for the full video.
