Our friendly neighbored Spider-Man sat down with Entertainment Weekly to talk about the upcoming No Way Home and his face-off with villain alumni Doc Ock (portrayed again by actor Alfred Molina).
Here is what he had to say regarding the villain’s classic tentacles being computer generated this go-around, instead of practical effects like we originally saw in Spider-Man 2 from 2004:
“It was really fun to watch him see how technology has advanced,” Holland adds. “When he was making these films, the arms were puppets, and when we did it, they’re all imaginary and CG. It was quite cool to see him relive it, but also relearn it.”
The first film, [director] Jon Watts and I were sort of flying by the seat of our pants,” Holland says. “This one, I think we both felt really confident, so we were able to relax. We actually had so much more fun on this one than we did on the previous two.
“We’ve been making these films for five years now,” Holland explains. “We’ve had such an amazing relationship, the three of us. We’ve been with each other every step of the way. We’ve done every single film, every single press tour. So this one scene, [we didn’t know] if this would be the last time [we were all working together.] [It] was heartbreaking but also really exciting because we’re all moving into the next chapter of our careers. So sharing that moment with them was maybe the best day I’ve ever had on set. I don’t think I’ve cried like that ever.”
