For the first time in the cinematic history of Spider-Man, our friendly neighborhood hero is unmasked and no longer able to separate his normal life from the high-stakes of being a Superhero. The teaser trailer of the Spider-Man: No Way Home recalled what happened in the Spider-Man: Far From Home mid-credits scene as Peter Parker’s identity was revealed. He is being interrogated by cops as he defends himself saying he didn’t kill Mysterio (Jake Gyllenhaal). Tom Holland says that it marks the end of the trilogy and that they treated the film as an end of the franchise.
Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, Holland said, “We were all treating [No Way Home] as the end of a franchise, let’s say. 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.”
Tom admitted that him along with Zendaya and Jacob Batalon became emotional as the film wrapped. “We’ve been making these films for five years now,” Holland explained to EW. “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.”
Tom Holland and Zendaya starrer Spiderman: No Way Home, will also have appearances from Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange, Jacob Batalon as Ned Leeds, and Marisa Tomei as Aunt May.
This is the third consecutive Spider-Man film directed by Jon Watts and will have a theatrical release. Sony Pictures Entertainment India releases Spiderman: No Way Home in December 2021.
