No Way Home will be the last independent film of the superhero in Holland. Prior to this, he appeared in two more movies and other Marvel movies such as Avengers: Endgame, Avengers: Infinity War, and Captain America: Civil War.

While speaking to Total Film about Spider-Man, Tom Holland said: “I have grown and changed in the best way possible. I really learned to defend myself. When you start making these movies, you have to do what they tell you and you don’t think anything about it. But as time goes by, you realize that you are an actor in your movie and you need to protect yourself. “
“Sometimes I say ‘no’ as a complete sentence. I have learned to defend myself, to behave professionally when you are the leader. I’ve learned to enjoy my fame, instead of running away from it, ”Holland said.
Tom Holland continued: “It has been an incredible experience. And as an actor, I have found a lot of confidence in my ability, having this security blanket that is Spider-Man. It’s like a playground for me. Somewhere I can play freely and make mistakes. And sometimes those mistakes are the birth of the best idea, and that’s where the character is growing from. “
