Tom Holland, who plays the titular role of friendly neighborhood superhero Spider-Man in the Spider-Man film series produced under the banner of Marvel Studios in association with Sony Pictures, reveals that his upcoming superhero blockbuster Spider-Man: No Way Home, set to be the last part in the series, will be darker in tone as compared to other two movies in the superhit franchise.

"What people will be really surprised about is that it's not fun, this film. It's dark and it's sad, and it's going to be really affecting. You're going to see characters that you love go through things that you would never wish for them to go through. And I was just really excited to kind of lean into that side of Peter Parker," Holland said to Total Film during a recent interview, explaining how Jon Watts’ directed Spider-Man: No Way Home will differ from its predecessor.

He continued, touching upon the web-slinger and his arc in the film. "Peter Parker is always someone who's looking up. He's always really positive. He's always like, 'I can fix this. I can do this.' Whereas in this film, he feels like he's met his match. He's like, 'I don't know what to do.' That was an aspect of the character that I'd never seen before, and I was really, really excited to try to tackle," he added.

He further added, saying that even though he has not seen the complete film, he thinks that “it's the best work” he has ever done. "I haven’t seen the film yet but I’ve seen pieces of the film, and it's the best work we've ever done. It's the best Spider-Man film that we've ever made. I really don't think fans are at all ready for what they've put together. I know that I'm not ready, and I know that it's going to be brutal."

While the 25-year-old Holland would be seen leading the Spider-Man: No Way Home in the role of Peter Parker also known as Spiderman, he is set to join other superstars who are also included in the cast of the much-awaited movie such as Zendaya in the role of MJ, Benedict Cumberbatch in the role of Doctor Strange, Jon Favreau in the role of Harold "Happy" Hogan, Jacob Batalon in the role of Ned Leeds, Marisa Tomei in the role of May Parker, J. B. Smoove in the role of Julius Dell, Alfred Molina in the role of Otto Octavius also known as Doctor Octopus, and Jamie Foxx in the role of Max Dillon also known as Electro. 

Jon Watts returns to direct the superhero blockbuster as he previously also directed the other films in the series which include Spider-Man: Homecoming and Spider-Man: Far From Home. Chris Mckenna along with Erik Sommers serves as the story writer of the epic and it is a successor to 2019's Spiderman: Far From Home.

With the movie set to be the 27th entry in Marvel Cinematic Universe, it is currently set to arrive in theatres on December 17, 2021.
