Tom Holland has been out on the “Spider-Man: Far From Home” promotional tour this week with co-stars Zendaya, Jake Gyllenhaal and Jacob Batalon.
Speaking with JOE.co.uk during said rounds, he confirmed that he was originally slated to make a cameo in the Oscar-winning animated feature “Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse,” but ultimately the planned in-joke didn’t happen.
The film’s co-director Rodney Rothman has previously said he wrote scenes for all three major Spider-Man film actors – Holland, Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield – but the idea was nixed. Now Holland has discussed what would have happened in the scene:
“At one point I was supposed to be in it. There was going to be another Peter Parker… There was like a scene in a train station or something, and it was going to be like an Easter egg. I was going to walk through the background and say like ‘Hey, kid’ or something… Never happened. Heartbroken.”
Holland had nothing but praise for ‘Spider-Verse,’ in fact he was worried it would overshadow his own films:
“It was so good. It was so funny. And I was so stressed when it came out! It was really awesome. [Shamiek Moore as Miles] was really really good in it. But I’m just excited to introduce Miles into our own universe one day. I think that’s going to be really good.”
“Spider-Man: Far From Home” is in cinemas from July 2nd.
