Tom Holland and Jake Gyllenhaal pick their favourite Marvel film

Tom Holland and Jake Gyllenhaal have named their favourite film from the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

The actors, who appear in new film Spider-Man: Far From Home, were being interviewed when they were asked to make the pick omitting both Spider-Man films.

Without a beat, Holland said: “I like Thor: Ragnarok” with Gyllenhaal chiming in: “I was just about to say that.”

The pair join fellow Marvel actors Don Cheadle and Paul Rudd who also selected Taika Waititi’s 2017 sequel when asked the same question in previous interviews.

The critically-acclaimed Thor: Ragnarok stars Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Tessa Thompson and Cate Blanchett.

Director Waititi also cameoed in the film as Korg, a character he returned as in Avengers: Endgame.

Spider-Man: Far From Home serves as a direct sequel to Endgame, the ending of which Holland spoiled for viewers of The Graham Norton Show last week.

The new film, which also stars Zendaya, Jon Favreau and Samuel L Jackson, is released in cinemas on 2 July.
