Tom Holland, Andrew Garfield, and Tobey Maguire made a surprising reunion in Spider-Man: No Way Home. The sight of the three Spideys on one screen was a huge treat to the audience. But just like the viewers, Hollan admitted that he never thought the superhero flick would be a massive success.
Tom Holland Shares Expectations On Spider-Man: No Way Home
Holland, Garfield and Maguire reunited again with Pete Hammond to share their filming experience for the recent Spider-Man movie. The film has been consistently dominating in the box office and when the lead star was asked about it, he admitted that he was totally surprised.
"I mean, I always knew that this film would be loved around the world. I didn’t think it would be quite as massive as it has been," Holland told Garfield and Maguire. "One of my favorite things to do at the minute is to go online and watch fans’ reactions to you guys coming in that one scene in particular. I don’t think I could ever have imagined it as being so well received by everyone. I mean, I guess I had an idea that people would love this movie, but in no way, shape, or form could I have thought it was going to be as big as it has been,"
Holland said that it took him a couple of weeks to come back to reality and face real-world problems. He added that it felt like he was in some sort of a really weird dream and it felt strange. The actor is currently in the UK with his girlfriend Zendaya and family.
Tom Holland Really Bidding Goodbye As Spider-Man?
Maguire and Garfield agreed to join Holland in the film because they were told it would be a celebration of the film. Meanwhile, Sony and Marvel execs were framing it as the culmination of the 20-year franchise. It's also Holland's final film because he was only set to do three solo movies.
Holland said that there was a lot of emotion because it dawned on him that it could be the last time he would potentially don the suit. At the same time, it felt like a celebration of three generations referring to the three actors who played the superhero — him, Maguire and Garfield.
When pressed further if he would return as Spider-Man, Holland said he wasn't sure. Nevertheless, he was very happy to share the experience with Maguire and Garfield because "we’re the only three blokes who have done it."
He wasn't sure about his future as Spider-Man, but what Holland was certain was his love for the character and that he didn't want to bid goodbye yet.
"I know I love this character, and I know that I am not ready to say goodbye," Holland said. "But if it’s time for me to say goodbye, then I will do so proudly, knowing that I’ve achieved everything I wanted to with this character, and sharing it with these boys will be forever one of the most special experiences of my career. So, if it’s time, it’s time. If it’s not, it’s not, but at the moment, I don’t know."
