Tom Holland says he sees Spider-Man: No Way Home as “the end of a franchise”.
The Spider-Man actor spoke to EW, where he said that if his run with solo Spider-Man movies were to continue, they would look very different from the three he has played in so far.
“I think if we were lucky enough to dive into these characters again, you would see a completely different version. It would no longer be the Homecoming trilogy,” Holland said. “We would give it some time and try to build something different and tonally change the films. Whether that happens or not, I do not know. But we certainly dealt [No Way Home] as if it was about to end and it felt like it. “
The Homecoming trilogy includes Spider-Man: Homecoming, Spider-Man: Far From Home and the upcoming No Way Home. In addition to these films, Holland debuted as Peter Parker in Captain America: Civil War, and he also appeared in Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame.
Zendaya and Jacob Batalon, who play MJ and Peter’s best friend Ned, have appeared in all three films in the Homecoming trilogy. Holland said it was an emotionally charged day as the footage for No Way Home was wrapped up.
“We’ve been making these films for five years now,” Holland said. “We’ve had such a great relationship, the three of us. We’ve been with each other every step of the way. We’ve made every single movie, every single press trip. 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 are all going into the next chapter of our careers. So sharing that moment with them was perhaps the best day I have ever had on set. I never think I cried like that. “
