In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Tom Holland dishes as much as he can about the upcoming Spider-Man film without getting into trouble.
Spider-Man: No Way Home marks Holland’s third solo Spider-man appearance, and story-wise, the 25-year-old actor calls it a “conclusion” to his trilogy, wrapping up the narrative he and Watts first introduced in 2017’s Homecoming.
“We were all treating [No Way Home] as the end of a franchise, let’s say,” he adds. “I think if we were lucky enough to dive into these characters again, you’d be seeing a very different version. It would no longer be the Homecoming trilogy. We would give it some time and try to build something different and tonally change the films. Whether that happens or not, I don’t know. But we were definitely treating [No Way Home] like it was coming to an end, and it felt like it.”
Holland adds that he felt that finality while filming — especially during one of his last days on set, shooting a scene with Zendaya (MJ) and Jacob Batalon (Ned).
“We’ve been making these films for five years now,” Holland explains. “We’ve had such an amazing relationship, the three of us. We’ve been with each other every step of the way. We’ve done every single film, every single press tour. So this one scene, [we didn’t know] if this would be the last time [we were all working together.] [It] was heartbreaking but also really exciting because we’re all moving into the next chapter of our careers. So sharing that moment with them was maybe the best day I’ve ever had on set. I don’t think I’ve cried like that ever.”
Of course, Tom Holland is notorious for spilling the beans and revealing things that were supposed to stay under wraps in his interivews. So, is he doing that again? Or just planting disinformation? Time will tell.
Spider-Man: No Way Home stars Tom Holland, Zendaya, Jacob Batalon, Marisa Tomei, Jamie Foxx, Alfred Molina, J.K. Simmons and Benedict Cumberbatch, scheduled to swing in to theaters on December 17. Watch the trailer below:
