The 27-year-old also gushed about Sony producer Amy Pascal, likening her to a parental figure. “Amy Pascal is like my mom. I was supposed to go with her [to the premiere] as her date. I couldn’t go because I’m here working. But I’m incredibly proud of them,” Tom Holland continued about the animated Spider-Man team.
“I’m excited for the second one. I’m sure it will live up to every expectation, and I can’t wait to see it,” Tom Holland added about his favorite Spider-Man movie. Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse was released in 2018. It was directed by Bob Persichetti, Peter Ramsey, and Rodney Rothman and produced by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller.
The film gave fans a unique take on the Spider-Man mythos, exploring the concept of the multiverse. The story follows Miles Morales, a teenager from Brooklyn who becomes Spider-Man after being bitten by a radioactive spider. Later, Miles realizes there are other versions of the web-slinger from different dimensions.
They eventually team up to stop a threat that could destroy all realities.
Its sequel, which fans like Tom Holland have been waiting for, called, Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, debuted in theaters on June 2. The story sees Brooklyn’s friendly neighborhood Spider-Man catapulted across the multiverse, where he meets a team of Spider-People tasked with protecting its very existence.
However, when the heroes disagree about how to deal with a new threat, Miles finds himself at cross purposes with his counterparts. As a result, Miles is forced to redefine what being a hero means to save the people he loves most. The voice cast includes Shameik Moore and Hailee Steinfeld as Miles Morales/Spider-Man and Gwen Stacy/Spider-Woman.

He said there had been a few short meetings, but things are currently on hold as the team stands in solidarity with the Writers Guild of America strike.
“I can’t talk about that, but I can say that we have been having meetings. We’ve put the meetings on pause in solidarity with the writers,” Tom Holland said about Spider-Man 4. “There’s been multiple conversations had, but at this point, it’s very, very early stages.” He previously portrayed the web-slinger in Captain America: Civil War, Avengers: Infinity War, Avengers: Endgame, and three solo movies.
