Tom Holland Had a Cameo Cut From ‘Into the Spider-Verse’
Into the Spider-Verse had almost more Spider-Men then you think. In an exclusive interview with JOE, Spider-Man: Far From Home star Tom Holland revealed he had a cut cameo from another Spider-Verse film.
While speaking to the outlet about a possible cameo in a Spider-Verse film, Holland provided a brief description of the scene. He also spoke of his disappointment in the scene being cut.
“At one point I was supposed to be in it(Spider-Verse), There was going to be another Peter Parker… There was like a scene in a train station or something, and it was going to be like an Easter egg. I was going to walk through the background and say like ‘Hey, kid’ or something. Never happened. Heartbroken.”
Jacob Batalon, who play’s Peter’s friend Ned in Far From Home, had at one point petitioned for a role, too. “I tried to throw my hat in for Ganke. I was trying to hit up Amy [Pascal, producer of the movie].” Funnily enough, Batalon plays Ned, a variation of Ganke from Into The Spider-Verse. Tom Holland had nothing but praise for Into the Spider-Verse as well. “It was so good. It was so funny. And I was so stressed when it came out! It was really awesome.“
With Tom Holland’s support of the film, a cameo in a future installment doesn’t seem too unlikely. It will be interesting to see what cinematic versions of Spider-Man, if any at all, are featured in a Spider-Verse sequel.
