In the interview with Watts, he explained that “We’re definitely trying to be ambitious,”. The director then explained that “It’s ‘Spider-Man: Endgame.’
During Holland’s interview the actor said that “When I was first pitched the idea, I was like, ‘Wow, that would be awesome if we could pull it off.’ Holland then added “But there’s just no way it’s going to work. You’re just not going to be able to get everyone to do what they need to do. It’s just not going to happen.’ But it did happen. And it’s crazy.”
Then Feige during his portion of the interview explained that the return of Doc Ock was of importance and could not see another actor play the iconic Marvel villain. Fegie recalled that “I remember having discussions with Amy Pascal years ago. Do we want to revisit villains we’ve seen before?’ No, let’s do Vulture, and Mysterio, and characters we haven’t brought to the screen before. But I remember thinking, ‘How would you even do Doc Ock again?’, because Alfred Molina is perfect casting. If you ever brought him back, it would have to be him somehow.”
With the comments of Feige, Watts, and Holland it’s safe to say that No Way Home will be the most ambitious and grandest Spider-Man film to date. Check out some of the pictures on the Empire site.
