2016’s Doctor Strange made many fans familiar with Benedict Cumberbatch’s character of the same name. Strange has been featured in several films since then, including Avengers Infinity War and Endgame, where he played a significant role. He will also have a huge role to play in Spider-Man: No Way Home, which will deal with multiverses.
Tom Holland also previously stated that Spider-Man: No Way Home will be the end of the Homecoming trilogy. He then made it clear that a fourth film featuring the webhead isn’t impossible. Holland further added that Marvel would build something different with a possible fourth film.
It was also previously reported that Spider-Man: No Way Home will mark the beginning of the shared universe with Sony and Marvel. Holland even admitted that he didn’t think the script would work at first.
While speaking with Total Film, Tom Holland talked about portraying the role of Spiderman over the past few years. Holland admitted that the role helped him actually enjoy fame instead of running away from it.
“I’ve grown and changed in the best ways possible. I really learned how to stand up for myself. When you first start making these films, you’ve got to do as you’re told, and you don’t think anything of it. But as time goes on you realize that you’re an actor in your film, and you need to protect yourself. Sometimes I’ll say ‘no’ as a full sentence. I’ve learned how to stand up for myself , how to behave in a professional capacity when you’re the leader. I’ve learned how to enjoy my fame, rather than run away from it.
“It’s been an amazing experience. And as an actor, I’ve found so much confidence in my ability, through having this safety blanket that is Spider-Man. It’s like a playground for me. Somewhere I can play freely, and make mistakes. And sometimes those mistakes are the birth of the best idea, and that’s where the character’s growing from.”
Holland also recently stated that the film will be very dark and sad and not fun at all. With Spider-Man: No Way Home promising to be one of the most ambitious films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it is likely they will be bringing in many characters from the previous Spider-Man films. We will have to see how the film will become the bridge between the MCU and Sony’s universes.
