James Gunn Says Tom Holland is "Off-the-Charts Awesome" in Captain America: Civil War

James Gunn is one of the few souls on Earth who has already seen Captain America: Civil War, and everyone will be relieved to know that the notoriously opinionated filmmaker gave it rave reviews.

During a live Facebook Q&A, Gunn was asked his thoughts about Doctor Strange, but since it only started filming last month, he could only say that he liked the script. But then, he offered unprompted thoughts on another upcoming Marvel movie:

Opening quote
"I saw Civil War, and I think it's incredible. It's one of the best Marvel movies ever, and I can't believe what a wonderful job the Russo Brothers did, and the cast."
Closing quote

Gunn is a Marvel director, so it stands to reason that he wouldn't say anything bad about the film, per se. But he's known to be very honest and blunt, so it's unlikely that he would offer his opinion if he didn't genuinely enjoy the film. Plus, "one of the best Marvel movies ever" is pretty high praise, especially considering that that includes Guardians of the Galaxy.

He went on to single out Tom Holland specifically, which not only says great things about his performance, but may indicate that he has a larger role in Civil War than we originally thought:

Opening quote
"Tom Holland is off the charts awesome," Gunn said. "Off the charts. Truly. Hand to my heart, he's amazing."

Captain America: Civil War comes out in theaters on May 6, 2016.
