Tom Holland has already established himself as the new Spider-Man in the mainstream consciousness, taking that identity away from Tobey Maguire whose previous run brought him a lot of unprecedented success. Holland has quickly garnered a global audience for his quirky and innocently charming portrayal of a young Spider-Man in spin-offs as well as the Avengers franchise.
The latest addition to Holland’s Spider-Man series is scheduled to come out later this year. Titled Spider-Man: No Way Home, the film chronicles the disastrous consequences that take place when Spider-Man seeks the help of Doctor Strange to access an alternate reality where his secret identity hasn’t been revealed to the world yet.
In an interview, director Jon Watts said: “I’ve been in a fortunate place where everyone seems to be on board with the ideas that I want to do. I’ve never really felt a ton of push-back, but it’s such a great creative team to be working with. You do kind of feel like you can do anything, and you never really feel those kinds of limitations. As long as it’s cool, you’ll get the support you need.
“If you’re making a film where it’s going to have these connections, they loop you in early on about the other projects that are in development. You know what they’re planning on doing, so you know what you can use and what you can’t use or what they’re going to be using on something else. It’s a cool process, and just as a fan, I also love knowing what all the other movies are going to be about, too.”
He added: “I feel like we’re just setting the table. I don’t want to limit the things that we can do, but it is nice to just be building out this world and knowing these characters are out there, even if they’re not immediately going to come back, we know that we’re there, and we know that if we ever need to or want to, all options are on the table.”
The brand new trailer for Spider-Man: No Way Home has already broken records, gaining around 355.5 million views in the first 24 hours since its release. It has already outdone the record set by the trailer for Avengers: Endgame which had “only” 289 million views.
