SPIDER-MAN: NO WAY HOME Star Tom Holland Is Hoping The Next Villain He Faces Is Jared Leto's Morbius
Spider-Man: No Way Home star Tom Holland reveals his three favourite villains from the time he's spent as Peter Parker, expressing an interest in one day pitting the wall-crawler against a Living Vampire.
Since first appearing in 2016, Tom Holland's Spider-Man has been pitted against everyone from Captain America to Mysterio and Thanos, but next up are a number of villains from alternate realities. In Spider-Man: No Way Home, the wall-crawler will find himself taking on the Green Goblin, Doctor Octopus, Electro, Sandman, and The Lizard, but who could be next for Spidey?
Asked about his favourite Marvel Cinematic Universe opponents, Holland responded: "That's tricky. I think the Vulture is going to be in there because he's my first and that was cool. I think Jake's [Gyllenhaal, Mysterio] got to be in there because he's my love. And I think Willem, the fight scenes that we have with Willem are crazy and so scary that it really was awesome to like, explore different kinds of Spider-Man action."
As for future opponents, the actor had a surprising suggestion for his Spider-Man's next sinister foe. "I actually think the Morbius film looks really cool. And it's more scary, that film," Holland suggested. "I think it could be quite a cool thing...Spider-Man versus a vampire."
Spider-Man crossing paths with Morbius does have some potential, especially if Marvel Studios or Sony Pictures were to follow the comic books in regards to what happened during their first meeting (as the teaser image above shows, that involved the wall-crawler getting four extra arms). Jared Leto has teased a "sinister" future for Morbius, so perhaps this clash is being saved for a Sinister Six movie?
Spider-Man: No Way Home arrives in U.S. on December 17 and in the UK on December 15.
