Marvel star and current Spider-Man, Tom Holland recently revealed in an interview that the film Spider-Man: No Way Home uses a move from Insomniac’s Spider-Man game.
Speaking to Extraordinerd, Holland said in the interview, “I have played the video game. I absolutely loved it. Sony were obviously very generous […] I think the game is amazing. I think it’s so fun. The swinging around the city is so well done. There’s actually one move that Spider-Man does in the game that we took, and he does in the film, and it’s really cool.” The Spider-Man actor didn’t go into detail about which move is in the film but viewers won’t have to wait long to find out as Spider-Man: No Way Home premieres in just a few days.
As both the film and the game are Sony, the connection is not surprising. On December 6, Insomniac Games made a post on Twitter announcing that two new suits inspired by Spider-Man: No Way Home would be making their way to the Spider-Man game on December 10. The new suits are only available to PlayStation 5 owners as part of Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales Ulitmate Edition but are a nice way to celebrate the release of the film.
Spider-Man: No Way Home is by far, the most hyped movie of the year, with its director even calling it Spider-Man: Endgame. The idea of a Spider-Man movie on the scale of Marvel’s Avengers: Endgame has caused rumors to swirl about the story. Spider-Man villains from past iterations of the films have already been shown in the trailers, but Tom Holland said the original plan was to keep them a surprise for audiences. In the same interview with Extraordinerd Holland said, “The initial plan was to make the film seem like a civil war between [Spider-Man] and Doctor Strange. They were going to keep everything a secret.”
Spider-Man: No Way Home is the third and possibly last installment of the trilogy. It releases in theaters on December 17, 2021.
