Tom Holland, who plays Spider-Man, felt intimidated during his screen test. Robert Downey Jr. reassured him, comparing it to his own nervousness during his Iron Man screen test.

Although not appearing in the film, Tom Hiddleston praised the helicopter scene featuring Chris Evans and jokingly mentioned that if someone didn’t love that moment, they couldn’t be friends.

Initially, T’Challa’s role in the film was smaller, but it was expanded when Marvel had difficulty obtaining permission to use Spider-Man. T’Challa became a significant part of the plot.
