Spider-Man has been a favorite comic character for decades. This is, of course, for many reasons; he's funny, relatable, and heroic. He hits a lot of the right spots.
For those that love him, watching Spider-Man in action is like watching a dream come to life. From Spider-Man, to The Amazing Spider-Man, to Tom Holland's Spider-Man: Homecoming; Spidey has been able to do all sorts of neat stunts on the big screen.
Before Peter Parker's arrival into the MCU, there wasn't any other character that could move like he did, or match how the ol' webhead enriched every action sequence he was a part of.
So, it's no surprise to learn that once everyone at Marvel Studios learned they were going to be able to work on sequences with Spidey in the MCU, they were ecstatic, to say the least.
TOM HOLLAND'S SCARY STUNTS
Marvel Studios and Abrams Books for Young Readers recently revealed a brand-new behind-the-scenes book called The Moviemaking Magic of Marvel Studios: Spider-Man.
In one of the many preview pages that were released from the book, there is one interesting one that talks about the stunts that Spider-Man has had to do throughout his various MCU appearances.
According to Marvel Studios producer Jeremy Latcham, once the team was told they had work to do with Spider-Man, "the Vis Devi team just flipped."
Apparently, Tom Holland also performed many of the stunts himself under the watchful eye of George Cattle, the films' stunt coordinator.
Victoria Alonso, who is Marvel Studios' EVP of Production and a producer on Spider-Man: No Way Home, commented on Spidey and his stunts, saying that "[Tom] does things that are a little scary...:"
"[Tom] does things that are a little scary, and we encourage him not to [do those things] because, you know, [he] could hurt [himself]... but, you know, as much as he can do, he will do. And whatever he can't do other CG will take over, or the stunt team will take him to fruition."
TOM HOLLAND, THE STUNT MAN
With how excited the team was when they first got Tom Holland's Spidey on board, it's crazy to think that the world came very close to losing Spider-Man for good––after one of the biggest cliffhangers ever, no less. Thankfully, Sony and Marvel came to an agreement, and fans now have Spider-Man: No Way Home to look forward to.
Fans are certainly not having any trouble with that, as the hype for the film is at an all-time high. The lack of a trailer has been driving people stir-crazy. Its absence is likely due to uncertainty within Sony about them possibly having to delay the film due to the Delta Variant.
When it comes to how Spider-Man moves, each Spider-Man over the last three franchises has been interpreted differently and has a different way of moving through action sequences. That means if fans are truly going to have Tom Holland, Andrew Garfield, and Tobey Maguire on the screen at the same time, then this film is going to be nothing short of epic.
