The Marcel Cinematic Universe has been consistently raising the stakes within the narrative of its movies, with demigods and otherworldly beings threatening the world. In comparison, the Spider-Man movies starring Tom Holland have always carried an air of levity.
However, that might not be the case any longer, if Tom Holland’s warning is to be heeded. In comments made to GamesRadar, Holland has described the upcoming “Spider-Man: No Way Home” as “dark” and “sad.”
What people will be really surprised about is that it’s not fun, this film. It’s dark and it’s sad, and it’s going to be really affecting. You’re going to see characters that you love go through things that you would never wish for them to go through.
Spider-Man: No Way Home is also expected to feature a greater cast of characters compared to the previous Spider-Man titles. The movie is also expected to introduce the multiverse.
In light of all this, it certainly seems like the stakes will be higher for Peter Parker this time around. Tom Holland also warned that Peter Parker might not be his usual optimistic self this time around, instead feeling like “he’s met his match.”
While Holland admitted that he hasn’t seen the finished product yet, he feels confident that it is “the best Spider-Man film that [they’ve] ever made.” For fans, December 17 can’t come any sooner.
