Tom Holland certainly doesn't have any problem working with big Hollywood names. After all, the young actor's first big break was in "The Impossible", which also starred Naomi Watts and Ewan McGregor. Holland is currently filming scenes for "Avengers: Infinity War" with major Marvel Cinematic Universe stars. However, one of the "Spider-Man: Homecoming" star's most interesting projects will pit him against The Punisher himself. Not surprisingly, Holland is good friends with Jon Bernthal, who he met while working on the upcoming Richard Armitage thriller "Pilgrimage".

There seems to be a special bond between Tom Holland and Jon Bernthal, and it is much deeper than just playing Marvel comic book characters Spider-Man and The Punisher. The stars actually grew close while working on "Pilgrimage", which follows a group of monks as they deliver a holy relic to Rome. Bernthal has previously revealed that he and the "Avengers: Infinity War" star were still filming the Richard Armitage thriller when they both found out they were auditioning for comic book roles (Holland for "Spider-Man: Homecoming", Bernthal for "Daredevil" Season 2), as per Variety. Can The Punisher protect Peter Parker in the Brendan Muldowney movie, or will it be the other way around?

In "Pilgrimage", Tom Holland plays a young monk who has to help bring a mysterious and suspiciously important relic across Ireland. Jon Bernthal will portray Holland's mute companion who also happens to have "a violent past", as per The Hollywood Reporter. Richard Armitage has been cast as a knight who needs to help the monks in their journey. The film will feature the first time that Spider-Man, The Punisher, and Thorin Oakenshield have to work together in a "Lord of the Rings"-type journey.

Tom Holland might already have several projects in the works, but there is another movie that he is also interested in. CeleBeat has previously reported that the "Spider-Man: Homecoming" actor has his eye on Sony's "Venom" spin-off film. The "Pilgrimage" release date has not yet been announced but the Jon Bernthal flick is expected to premiere later this year.
