Instead of traveling too far back in time, let’s take a peek at Tom Holland’s Spider-Man screen test with Chris Evans; the moments that defined his MCU career, and turned him into the fan-favorite web-slinger. His old audition tape before his big debut in Captain America: Civil War has been making rounds on the internet for years.

Tom Holland stars as Peter Parker/Spider-Man in Columbia Pictures' SPIDER-MAN: NO WAY HOME.

Looking back at the screen test tape shared via X, fans are taken on a nostalgic trip, back to the good old days of the MCU. Reliving the moments, netizens recall OG Avengers and reminisce about the time when Marvel used to be about quality content and gripping storylines.

Tom Holland’s Old Screen Test With Chris Evans Resurfaces

It was undoubtedly a daunting task for Tom Holland, to not only become the third live-action Spider-Man but also make his MCU debut with the 2016 Captain America: Civil War – a pivotal movie filled with just about every important MCU hero. But the actor stood out with his performance, and his screen test with Chris Evans is a testament to it.

That very old footage of Tom Holland’s screen test with Chris Evans has been making rounds on social media for a long time. Now, after almost a decade, the video resurfaced on the internet showcasing Holland’s incredible talent that helped casting director Sarah Finn and her team narrow down auditions of 7000 candidates to one individual, via Republic World.

Proving more than capable of performing alongside A-listers like Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Evans at just 18 years of age, Tom Holland was eventually cast as Marvel’s web-slinger ahead of 2016’s Captain America: Civil War. But now, as fans watch the old audition tape, it brings back memories of the good old days when MCU had more fan-favorite actors than the present time.

The Old Footage Takes Fans Back to the Good Old MCU Days

Apart from the sheer fact that Tom Holland was the perfect fit for the role of the third live-action Spider-Man, the old footage also highlighted fans’ excitement and nostalgia regarding the good old MCU days. The footage seemingly had an impact on fans of the MCU, for the franchise used to be a gem, favored by all, ahead of Holland’s casting in 2016, and in the years that followed.

Avengers: Endgame was a catartic celebration of the MCU and a farewell to some beloved heroes

Starring iconic actors like Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, and more, MCU used to be a successful franchise based on star power and gripping plots. However, gradually with time, the franchise hit its rock bottom following the 2019 Avengers: Endgame, when major actors dropped out of the MCU. Killing off Downey Jr’s Iron Man and Johansson’s Black Widow, Marvel even witnessed Evans exiting the franchise, handing over his Captain America mantle to Anthony Mackie.



Thereafter, MCU began branching out to television series like Hawkeye, WandaVision, and box office disasters like The Marvels and more. It seems Avengers: Endgame not only marked the end of Thanos and significant Marvel characters but also the end of Marvel’s iconic reputation. Thus, as Tom Holland’s screen test footage resurfaced on the internet, fans began reliving the heartfelt memories from the franchise’s prime years.
