Tom Holland has spoken up about his friendship with ‘Spider-Man’ stars Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire, who both played the iconic superhero before him. The 27-year-old actor expressed his admiration for the two stars and discussed their friendship after filming the 2021 picture ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home.’
During a recent Vanity Fair interview, the actor stated that they still communicate after working together. “We have a great group chat and check in on a regular basis.” When asked about their friendship, Tom answered, “It’s called the Spider-Boys.” “Myself, Andrew, and Tobey—we have this amazing bond as three people who have been through something so unique that we really are like brothers.”
He also expressed guilt for not reaching out to Andrew before portraying ‘Spider-Man’ for the first time in 2015, one year after his depiction of the superhero. “I was 19 years old when I was cast. “I was so focused on getting the role that I never stopped to consider what it must have been like for him,” he remarked, alluding to Andrew’s Spider-Man’s poor reaction. “If I’d made my second film and it didn’t necessarily deliver as well as it should have, and they recast me, I’d have a hard time coming back.”
“Andrew recovered in the most incredible way. “I just wish I’d called him and said, ‘You know I can’t pass up this opportunity,'” she says. Tom went on to say that he is “a little apprehensive” about the franchise’s fourth movie, which is currently on hold due to a writer’s strike.
