Spider-Man: No Way Home swings into theaters Friday.
Stars Tom Holland, Zendaya, and Jacob Batalon remained tight-lipped about the film’s plot ahead of the release, as they’re sworn to secrecy — which is something they’re used to by now.
Recalling the first Spider-Man film — No Way Home is the third — Zendaya says, “Like, the biggest thing that…the biggest spoil was like, my name was MJ. And now if you only knew,” referring to the classic comic book character she plays, though her role was unknown at the time.
Batalon doubled down on that statement, before Zendaya adds, “The things I can’t say now. So…we got some good practice. I think the stakes are just a little bit higher.”
Even though the cast can’t give any major spoilers away, the trio did tease what fans can expect.
“Villains. Friendship. Fighting. Fun. Emotion. Scariness,” Holland reveals.
“New sides to the characters we’ve never seen before,” Zendaya chimes in, to which Holland responds, “That’s very true. Jacob becomes a hero.”
Batalon confirms, “Yup, all of those things, plus more.”
While the frenzy surrounding Spider-Man is something that has been a “very overwhelming experience” for Holland, he says being able to experience the mania with his cast mates has made all the difference.
“There’s no one I would rather do this with,” he shares. “And you know, this has been a very overwhelming experience. The last six years of our life has felt like we’ve been on a roller coaster, so to be on that roller coaster together makes it that much easier.”
Spider-Man: No Way Home is a co-production of Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios, the latter of which is owned by ABC News’ parent company, Disney.
