Tom Holland Says Spider-Man: No Way Home Is ‘Brutal’, ‘Dark’, and ‘Sad’

Spider-Man star Tom Holland says Spider-Man: No Way Home is dark and sad, which is very unlike the other solo Spidey films he’s starred in to this point. In an interview with Total Film, Holland spoke about the differences between the upcoming film and the other two entries in the Homecoming trilogy.

“What people will be really surprised about is that it’s not fun, this film,” Holland said. “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. And I was just really excited to kind of lean into that side of Peter Parker.”

Holland went on to say Peter feels like he’s “met his match” in this film, which is a part of the character Holland hasn’t had to tackle until this project.

Previously, Holland has said the cast and crew are treating No Way Home as the “end of a franchise”, meaning that future appearances of these characters would look very different than the three movies they’ve made so far.

Along with the apparent tonal shift, Spider-Man: No Way Home is setting itself up to be a huge Marvel event. The newest Spider-Man poster shows off a new look at the return of one classic Spidey villain, while a magazine reveal may have confirmed even more Spider-Man villains for the movie. And if you’re trying to avoid all details for the movie, be careful, because two images that appear to show major spoilers are floating across social media.
