SPIDER-MAN: NO WAY HOME Star Tom Holland Recalls "Amazing" Scenes With Willem Dafoe's Green Goblin (Exclusive)

Spider-Man: No Way Home star Tom Holland has revealed what it was like to share the screen with Willem Dafoe and Alfred Molina, recalling one moment with the former that sent chills down his spine...

Tom Holland has had an incredible ride as the Marvel Cinematic Universe's Spider-Man, starting with Captain America: Civil War and (potentially) concluding with Spider-Man: No Way Home

The future for this iteration of Peter Parker may be a little uncertain (producer Amy Pascal says another trilogy is coming), but if this is it, then what a way to wrap things up. The wall-crawler will square off with villains from the franchise's past, including the Green Goblin, Doctor Octopus, Electro, Sandman, and The Lizard; for Holland, one can only imagine what that experience was like.

When we had the opportunity to chat with the actor, we asked how it felt to step on set with stars such as Alfred Molina and Willem Dafoe. "Walking on set, playing this character, we’re here with Spider-Man: No Way Home and I’m established and I know what I’m doing," Holland recalls. "All of a sudden, I’m thrown this curveball of fighting villains from the Raimi Universe."

"It was crazy," the actor continued. "I mean, I had so many 'pinch me' moments where I’d be standing there looking at Alfred doing scenes with him and I really had to kind of take myself out of it and kind of focus as an actor rather than a fan because I was freaking out inside."
 


Of course, we were particularly intrigued by what it was like to share the screen with Willem Dafoe's Green Goblin and to finally explore the dynamic between Peter Parker and Norman Osborn.

"It was incredible. It was a dream come true," Holland gushed. "Firstly getting to fight against the Green Goblin and then secondly that Green Goblin getting to be Willem Dafoe was amazing. It was honestly incredible. Like I said before, [there were] so many pinch me moments. He would say things he had said in the previous movies and everyone would get chills down the back of their spines. It was awesome. It really was incredible and I couldn’t dream of a better version."

While trailers for the movie haven't shied away from showing Doc Ock in action, we can't wait to see more of the Goblin. He's clearly the movie's lead villain, and Norman must have something up his sleeve. That could prove fatal for Peter Parker and the people he loves, so here's hoping the web-slinger gets some backup from a couple of familiar heroic (webbed) faces, eh?

Spider-Man: No Way Home will exclusively be released in cinemas from December 15th!
