Tom Holland, ‘Spider-Man’ Cast Meet Young Marvel Fan Who Saved Sister From Dog Attack

The 'Spider-Man' cast took time to meet a special fan on set - a seven-year-old boy named Bridger who saved his sister from a dog attack last year.

Tom Holland, Zendaya and the cast of “Spider-Man: No Way Home” met up with a special fan, Bridger Walker, who saved his sister from a vicious dog attack last year. Bridger jumped in front of a German Shepherd to save his sister’s life, which left him needing 90 stitches on his face after the attack.

On the set of the film that was just released and grossed $253 million in its opening weekend, Holland took time to greet Bridger, who is now seven years old. Holland even let the boy try on his mask and do his best Spidey pose as Zendaya watched. 

Bridger is a devout Marvel fan, and his bravery has turned him into an international sensation. Holland promised Bridger that he could spend a day on set with the crew. 

Bridger’s father, Robert Walker detailed the special day in an Instagram post. “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 wave at the kids like he was the one that was supposed to be excited — not the other way around.”

When Bridger finally met Holland, the actor showed him how to do the iconic three-point pose. “I can’t tell you guys apart … the Spider-Men,” Zendaya calls to the duo.

Zendaya also complimented Bridger’s sister. “Zendaya immediately approached my teenage daughter and told her how much she loved her nails,” Walker’s post continued. “I don’t know if she will ever know how much that simple act means to me — to see my sweet daughter light up with self-confidence and joy.”
