In No Way Home, Tom Holland Makes A Spider-Man Video Game Move

Tom Holland reveals that, in addition to being a fan of Insomniac Games’ Playstation version of Spider-Man, one of the games’ moves will appear in Spider-Man: No Way Home.

In a multiverse-crossover film, the third installment of Holland’s Spider-Man trilogy promises to weave together aspects from previous franchises.

So far, this has mostly been shown through returning villains like Alfred Molina’s Doc Ock and Jamie Foxx’s Electro, but fans are looking forward to a showdown between the three movie Spideys in a clash with a dark group of bad guys.

While putting the three on-screen Spider-Men together would be a major milestone, prior multiverse occurrences involving the character have never shied away from the strange. The final two episodes of the ’90s animated series included a dimension-breaking Spidey crossover, which inspired Spider-Man comic writer Dan Slott to rework the concept into a filled event in 2014’s “Spider-Verse” storyline.

This was, of course, loosely turned into the Academy Award-winning animated film Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, in which Miles Morales teamed up with a diverse collection of Spider-people, including a Japanese-American schoolgirl and a talking pig.

While no other Spider-people have been confirmed to feature in No Way Home, it appears that the film will at least pay tribute to one Spider-Man in particular. In an interview with Extraordinerd, Holland claims that his Web-slinger will use a move similar to Peter Parker from the current PlayStation series of games.

Holland claims he’s a great fan of Insomniac Games’ latest game, Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, and that Sony gave him a PS5 so he could play it in his spare time while filming No Way Home. “There’s actually one move that Spider-Man does in the game that we took and he does in the film, and it’s very awesome,” he says when asked if the game will be mentioned in any way.

Holland did not specify which specific move from the game was translated for live-action, so fans will have to wait until the film’s release to find out. The initial PS4 game was a huge financial success, winning numerous awards, and generating two successors to form a new Spidey video game series.
