Spider-Man: No Way Home has taken the globe by storm, and everyone is talking about it, whether it’s the deaths of specific characters or the return of Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire. However, given all that happens in the film and the thousands of characters, it appears like the production may have been a logistical nightmare.
Though the production went more smoothly than intended, it ran overtime owing to COVID-19, and Jamie Foxx organized impromptu dance parties on set. With those parties, Tom Holland pulling pranks on producers, and JK Simmons fussing about mustaches, it’s a wonder the picture was finished at all.
5. The Script was unbelievable for Tom Holland
There are a lot of unexpected moments in Spider-Man: No Way Home, such as the three separate Spider-Men joining together or Matt Murdock appearing out of nowhere. However, considering how multidimensional and ambitious the film is, effectively being both No Way Home and The Amazing Spider-Man 3, Holland was uncertain that it would succeed.
When Holland was originally approached about the project, he felt it was a “very fantastic idea,” but it couldn’t be done. And he went on to say how astonished he is that they are now advertising the film.
4. Willem Dafoe was persuaded in a different manner.
Willem Dafoe is a fantastic actor because he can give really dramatic, crazy performances like the Green Goblin, but then instantly snap out of it when the director calls cut. He’s a lot of fun and chatty, which leads to intriguing facts like these. Despite the fact that none of the performers from the Maguire and Garfield films were able to see the screenplay before signing on, Dafoe goes into detail about how he was wined and fed.
It wasn’t quite as beautiful as that, but he simply swooned when director Jon Watts told him about the Goblin’s involvement. Unlike Holland, Dafoe believed the notion was brilliant, and he was eager to go further into the part.
3. Producers were pranked by Tom Holland
Holland’s demeanor in interviews and press junkets isn’t simply a front; he appears to be a prankster behind the scenes as well. Because the film was shot during the COVID-19 epidemic, the actors and crew were frequently using hand sanitizer, and Holland used a bottle of lubricant to repair a damaged zip on the Spidey costume.
The actor duped Mitch Bell, a producer whom Holland jokingly refers to as “in charge of the money,” into thinking the bottle of lubricant was hand sanitizer. Bell went about the stage recklessly, rubbing the lubricant into his hands. Holland supposedly tried the same joke on a boom operator later that day as well.
2. Jamie Foxx was promised to not be Blue
In Spider-Man: No Way Home, Electro boasts one of the nicest and most comic-accurate outfits, and his lightning bolt mask that emerges whenever he blasts electromagnetic charges is a lot of fun. That wasn’t always the case, and in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, he appeared in a bizarre blue suit.
When Sony producer Pascal tried to get Jamie Foxx into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, she had to guarantee him that Electro would not be blue. And, happily, she followed through on her commitment. Electro has a radically different human appearance in No Way Home, as he’s a cool, one-liner spouting smooth-talker, which is entertaining but produces a couple of plotholes.
- Jamie Foxx hosted Dance Parties on set
Jamie Foxx is the king of cool, much like the roles he plays, whether it’s Django in Django Unchained or Electro in No Way Home. And, as an actor, comedian, and singer, he’s a jack of all crafts, so it’s no surprise that he’s also a dancer.
Zendaya arrived onto the set to discover Foxx holding a dance party, according to Zendaya, who seemed a little resentful after having some days off. She explains that Rihanna was performing and that the whole cast and staff were dancing. Because the project was behind schedule at the time, Zendaya blamed these gatherings, but it appears she was suffering from FOMO.
