Tom Holland discusses his initial reaction to being offered Spider-Man: No Way Home, revealing that he initially felt the concept was insane. The third edition in Holland’s Spider-Man franchise has been the subject of the most intrigue and expectation over the past year, from highly anticipated sequels like Black Panther: Wakanda Forever to Eternals, directed by Oscar-winner Chloé Zhao.
Holland Thought The Idea Of Bringing Back Familiar Would Fail!
Holland has added to the intrigue surrounding the impending Marvel picture in comments shared with Empire. The actor, who has played Peter Parker since Captain America: Civil War in 2016, confessed that he thought Spider-Man: No Way Home’s idea of bringing back familiar bad villains would never work when he first heard about it. But, in the end, it all came together, he said. The following is a quote from Holland.
“When I was first pitched the idea, I was like, ‘Wow, that would be awesome if we could pull it off. But there’s just no way it’s going to work. You’re just not going to be able to get everyone to do what they need to do. It’s just not going to happen.’ But it did happen. And it’s crazy.”
What Is Holland’s Future in the MCU?
These comments are the most recent evidence that the Marvel film will be noteworthy. Holland previously stated that the film marks the end of the Spider-Man: Homecoming saga. Watts also compared Spider-Man: No Way Home to Avengers: Endgame recently. None of these statements addresses the most persistent claims that Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield, who played Spider-Man in the past, may appear in a cameo. They do, however, make it obvious that Spider-Man: No Way Home is a change from Holland’s prior small-scale Peter Parker films.
After Spider-Man: No Way Home, Holland’s future with the MCU is uncertain. The actor has stated that he would be pleased to continue playing the web-swinging hero for several more years, but he has also stated in other interviews that he is looking forward to taking a break from acting after this Spider-Man sequel. Whatever happens, and whether or not he’ll be accompanied by Maguire and Garfield, the upcoming Spider-Man picture will undoubtedly be the buzz of the town when it hits theatres on December 17.
