‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ Director Jokes That It’s ‘Spider-Man: Endgame’

Tom Holland’s Spider-Man has been through a lot in the last five years. He jumped into Captain America’s Civil War. He assisted the Avengers in Infinity War and Endgame, even dying and coming back to life. Spider-Man forged new Marvel superhero friendships and locked in a mentor with Tony Stark.

For a short time, his life lingered in limbo between Sony and Marvel ownership. But in his own cinematic universe, the popular MCU webslinger battled the Vulture and had his world flipped inside out when Mysterio outed his identity in Spider-Man: Far From Home.

Spider-Man: No Way Home will show Spidey kicking up multiverse dust with Doctor Strange’s involvement, and it seemingly marks the end of Holland’s run. Director Jon Watts described the film as “Endgame.”

‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ is ‘Spider-Man: Endgame’

Spider-Man: No Way Home welcomes villains from all versions of Spider-Man’s past movie adventures. Doc Ock and the Green Goblin are among the “go big or go home” appearances in the upcoming movie treat where many worlds collide.

In a new interview with Empire magazine, director Jon Watts explained he intended to go places they haven’t gone before in the franchise. However, he teased this may be the final chapter.

“We’re definitely trying to be ambitious,” said Watts. He laughed and compared it to another Marvel hit. “It’s ‘Spider-Man: Endgame’.” As fans know, Avengers: Endgame marked the end of an era when Iron Man undid Thanos’ snap and wrapped up 10 years of interconnected MCU storylines. With Spider-Man: No Way Home, an entire trilogy would conclude.

Tom Holland is unsure about his future as ‘Spider-Man’

During the wide-ranging Empire interview, Tom Holland didn’t reveal any movie spoilers, but he dropped a curious hint about his place as Spider-Man. He discussed filming his last bit of footage for No Way Home and described it as “bittersweet.”

That raised suspicions over his future as Peter Parker/Spider-Man. “I honestly don’t know. It’s the first time since I got cast as Spider-Man that I don’t have a contract,” said Holland. “And it’s… it’s really difficult for me to talk about, because there are so many things I’d love to talk about that would help me embellish what I’m trying to explain. But I can’t, because it would just ruin the film.”

Look out for special guest star to appear

Kevin Feige and producer Amy Pascal also chatted with the outlet and shared that they’re part of a small group that maps out the Marvel movies. With Spider-Man, discussions started happening years ago about the multiverse plotlines. We know there are old Sony and MCU villains appearing in No Way Home, but fans can count on at least one other exciting callback.

However, it’s a wildcard. Feige acknowledged that some fandom rumors are true, and others are not. Holland spilled that he had one rehearsal session that drew co-stars and Zendaya and Jacob Batalon to set even though they were off. He also referenced a “cool scene” at a table with a guest star.

“It’s four people sitting at a table, having a conversation about what it’s like to be a superhero, and it was amazing. The other day we watched the scene, my brother and I, and our jaws were on the floor.”

Spider-Man: No Way Home arrives in theaters on Dec. 17.
