Tom Holland has finally revealed that he really regrets not calling ex Spider-Man star Andrew Garfield when he took over as the web-slinger as the actor would have been “heartbroken” if the same thing had taken place to him.

The MCU cast Tom Holland as its version of Spider-Man back in the year 2015 when he was just 19-years-old, and while recently talking to The Hollywood Reporter, he revealed that after looking back with some clarity, he should have ultimately made the call.

Holland said: “Something I can look back on now with a little bit of clarity and regret is that I never called him when I took over as Spider-Man.

“Had someone said to me after my second movie that I was done and this other kid was taking over, I would’ve been heartbroken. So looking back, I wish I had the chance to make amends with him.”

Tom Holland was also asked about how the reception to Andrew’s movies changed after the release of Far From Home, and he revealed that it was “without question” a big source of pride.

This also allowed the duo to make those amends that Holland earlier mentioned, as he said: “It was not only an opportunity for him to make peace with the character and the studio, but it was also an opportunity for me and him to have this moment where we realize we could share this thing.”

Holland went on to add: “The look on his face when he saves Zendaya is totally genuine, and I’m really proud of him. I’m really chuffed that he got this opportunity to win back the world and for people to be reminded that his Spider-Man movies are fantastic and brilliant in their own right.”

While appearing in another interview this past week, Holland even revealed that he wants to see an Amazing Spider-Man, and Andrew Garfield has already confirmed that he is up for returning for yet another film. Spider-Man: No Way Home has definitely proved that there’s still a lot of love for Spider-Men left among Marvel fans as the movie has already become Sony’s highest-grossing movie of all time.

While No Way Home is still running in cinemas, fans are now waiting for a couch-based viewing of No Way Home. We won’t have to wait too long as the film is set to arrive within the next six months on streaming services, however, not on Disney+ or Netflix, but Starz.

As stated by IGN, the film was “great”, as “No Way Home bounces from hilarious to hurt with ease as both the darkest and funniest MCU Spider-Man entry to date.”
