‘I’m Talking To You, Tom Holland’: Ant-Man Fame and ‘Best Golfer in the MCU’ Issues an Open Threat to Spider-Man

You might have heard of Hollywood stars playing golf in their leisure time, or even in professional tournaments. After all, who doesn’t know about Spider-Man fame, Tom Holland’s great interest in the sport? However, things just got webbed up for him after a new MCU star subtly challenged the avid golfer.

Ant-Man star challenges Spider-Man fame Tom Holland to test golfing skills

Tom Holland once admitted to choosing golf as his favorite sport as it is the only one where he won’t get dangerously injured. But it is not the same for MCU’s new cast, Kathryn Newton, who recently played Cassie Lang in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Qunatumania. Turns out that other than playing Ant-Man’s daughter in the film, Newton also has some crazy skills in golf.

Newton was shown following in her reel father’s footsteps and had a size-tampering suit of her own in the movie. And this has made her one of the most recent superheroes in the Marvel Universe. However, the actor was once on her way to becoming a professional golfer. In an interview, Newton admitted that she has been playing golf since she was eight years old. Moreover, she also had plans to go to the U.S. Women’s Open qualifier back in 2012. But after finding out about her interest in acting, Newton decided to turn golf into a mere hobby.

When IMDB asked her if anyone in the Ant-Man cast had better golfing skills than her, here’s what she said: “Definitely the best golfer in the cast. Absolutely. I might be the best golfer in the MCU. I’m talking to you, Tom Holland.”

Golf fans are completely aware of how much Holland enjoys playing the game. He even played a few shots in his spectacular Spider-Man suit and posted a video of the same. But Kathryn has definitely thrown a serious challenge toward the man. “I hear he’s a very good golfer, so I say that lightly and humbly, but I’m pretty good, so we’ll have to see,” she said, sounding like a real-life superhero!

Well, there’s only one way to find out who’s better among the two. However, like Spider-Man’s character, Holland prefers to keep his off-camera life very low-key. But Newton’s confidence definitely might get a lot of fans to shift to her side. Only a game between the two will explain if Holland’s club swinging is as good as Spider-Man’s web swinging. Or if it is as easy for Newton to hit massive shots as it is for Cassie Lang to turn big in size!
