As a drug-addicted war veteran struggling with PTSD in the new movie Cherry, Tom Holland’s searing portrayal is worlds away from Peter Parker. But the common thread between the two performances is Anthony and Joe Russo, who directed the star in both the Apple+ drama and The Avengers films. “Making a $500 million box office movie and making a small independent movie is so different, but the way they approach making them is exactly the same,” says Holland, 24, who joined EW’s The Awardist to discuss his dark new project. “The respect they had and the way they were able to galvanize everyone and have a really fun and positive experience while the subject matter was so dark and difficult to swallow was amazing.”
