Tom Holland Says There's a Scene in SPIDER-MAN: FAR FROM HOME That Will Punch Audiences in the Face
I guess Marvel fans should prepare themselves for another major blow when Spider-Man: Far From Home is released. During a set visit for the film, Tom Holland talked about the film with a bunch of reporters and he teased some things including what Peter Parker’s real mission and goal in the film is. He also teased a scene that is going to make the audience feel like they have been punched in the face.
In the film we see that all Peter wants to do is to go on vacation with his friends, but that is taken away from him when Nick Fury recruits him for a mission to help Mysterio save the world from The Elementals.
"At the end of the day, it's always about saving people and doing the right thing. The world is at risk in this film. I feel like the Vulture was sort of low level crime, it was under the radar. Not many people knew about it, but this is a worldwide event. The stakes are much higher for him and I think he understands that, meaning he has to really show up and bring his A-game.
While that may seem like a pretty intense mission, there’s another one that Peter is hoping to accomplish, his real main goal is to tell MJ that he loves her. When asked what Peter’s headspace is like in the movie, he explains, “At the heart of the film, Peter Parker just wants to tell the girl he really likes that he loves her and have a nice holiday. But that all gets ruined." He goes on to say:
“Love. He’s very much love-driven in this film, and taking a break. This film is all about him trying to take a break, but the responsibility of being Spider-Man always taking over. Which is quite funny, because in the first film we were really keen to show Peter Parker enjoying his powers and really wanting to be Spider-Man. Now we have Peter Parker, who still loves the aspects of Spider-Man, but just needs a break, just needs a holiday like everyone does at times, and that’s not possible when you’re a superhero and you have responsibilities to save lives. So it’s an interesting balance of kind of watching a kid do his homework. That’s kind of how I’m describing it.
So while Peter is out trying to save the world, all he’s really thinking about and wanting to do is tell MJ that he loves her. He goes on to describe the film as being like if Spider-Man: Homecoming and Spectre had a baby:
That’s how I would describe this film. It has the sexy aspect of being in Europe, having the spy mission undertone, but at the heart of it, it’s still a very similar film to Spider-Man: Homecoming in the sense that it’s really about Peter and his friends and the kids and the lighthearted humor that they have, and what happens when a group of Americans go to Europe. It’s a pretty amazing experience. So yeah, it’s pretty similar, but with a new undertone with super-cool spy stuff.
Holland then went on to talk about that major scene where audiences will feel like they’ve been punched in the face. Don’t worry, he doesn’t reveal what it is, but this is what he had to say about it:
“There’s a scene in this film where audiences will feel like they’ve been punched in the face. Even filming it, I remember walking out and watching it again on the monitors and asking Jon, “Are you sure that’s OK?” and he’s like, “No, it’s not. People are going to hate this scene.” But God, it’s pretty crazy. But it’s very similar in the way that it’s very tense, and it sort of whips the rug from underneath your feet. It’s pretty awesome.”
I have no idea what this could be, but I imagine they will end up killing off a certain character. The question is, who could that character be!? Ned? M.J.? Happy? Aunt May? It’ll be interesting to see how this story plays out!
