Tom Holland almost gave away Andrew Garfield and Zendaya’s sequel
Tom Holland made a big mistake during the press tour for his latest Spider-Man film, Spider-Man: No Way Home. While the film also starred Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire as Spider-Man from an alternate dimension, this was kept a secret until the film’s release. Unfortunately, Holland accidentally revealed details about a key scene starring Garfield and Zendaya.
Tom Holland accidentally spills the biggest secret about Spider-Man: No Way Home
Tom Holland himself has often admitted that he is not the best keeper of secrets. He has failed to keep secrets on other occasions as well. The press tour for Spider-Man: No Way Home proved to be a major challenge for Tom Holland as he had to restrain himself from revealing that Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire were part of the film. Unfortunately, he could not do so.
It all came to light while Andrew Garfield was being interviewed by BBC Radio’s Ali Plumb. The journalist took a moment to tell Garfield that he already knew the actor was in the film, thanks to Tom Holland’s mistake. The film’s trailer successfully hid the fact that Garfield and Maguire were starring in it. However, it did give us a glimpse of an intense scene where Zendaya falls backwards and Spider-Man jumps in to save her. In an interview with BBC Radio 1, Zendaya and Holland were talking about the action scene. However, while talking about the sequence, Holland admitted that he was not there. This revealed that he was not the only Spider-Man in the film. The camera also captured the moment when Tom Holland realized what he had done, and his speechless expression sticks in our minds forever.
Andrew Garfield on the importance of his and Zendaya’s Spider-Man sequel
When Andrew Garfield learns of the grave mistake he made, he sympathizes with Tom Holland, who had to lie to his fans for the longest time. He also explained why the sequel was so important to him, saying, “I like the idea that if this Peter had not been shown, he might have suffered the same fate as my Peter. There is something very cosmic in it. This is really cool, man.”
A fourth Spider-Man sequel is already in production, but is indefinitely delayed due to the SAG-AFTRA and WGA strikes.
