Spider-Man: No Way Home is all anyone can talk about right now. Tom Holland's Spidey threequel had a tall task before it hit theaters last week, as it sought to move the story forward for the young wall-crawler, while also honoring the monumental legacy of the character on the big screen. And it seemingly has accomplished both! 

No Way Home had fans boiling over in anticipation as it reintroduced villains from past Spider-Man movies, including Alfred Molina's Doc Ock, Jamie Foxx's Electro, and Willem Dafoe's Green Goblin. 

Since the film's release, audiences have been showing Marvel nothing but love. No Way Home has swung into the record books, becoming one of the biggest movie openings of all time. 

And there is a great reason why web-heads worldwide have responded the way they have. It is an exciting movie with plenty of secrets hidden within, secrets that the cast cannot wait to spill the beans on.

As a part of a string of recent interviews, Spider-Man: No Way Home star Tom Holland revealed what it was like working with Charlie Cox, as Cox reprised his role of Matt Murdock from Netflix's Daredevil for the MCU epic.

Holland told that he and his co-stars "had so much fun working with Charlie." The young actor said that "it was awesome" to do a scene "between two Super Heroes" that had "no real Super Hero stuff in it:"

Holland: "We had so much fun working with Charlie. It's really interesting doing a scene between two Super Heroes that has no real Super Hero stuff in it. Apart from the bit when he catches the brick. It was awesome."

Zendaya: "I didn't get to be there."

Holland: "You weren't there for that? Oh, you were there for that—"

Zendaya: "I was there for the behind-the-scenes watching you guys. But I didn't get to be in it."

Holland: "But it was great. I loved working with Charlie."

Spider-Man Meets Charlie Cox's Daredevil

The reveal of Charlie Cox as Matt Murdock is one of those moments that many will not soon forget. The inclusion of the actor - though long-speculated upon - was one of the best moments of No Way Home

It is incredible to see the actors share that same enthusiasm that fans have about seeing that character on-screen once again. It's not hard to hear the passion in Holland's voice in the above quotes. He knew this reveal would be as exciting as it was from day one. 

While it has not been confirmed if Cox will be back as the character any further than his brief inclusion in the web-slinging threequel, it was the perfect place for him to return. Daredevil and Spider-Man are so closely tied on the comic page. So if he was going to show up in something other than a straight-up brand-new Daredevil project, then it was fitting that he did so alongside Peter Parker. 

And Cox did so alongside someone else who so perfectly embodies his Marvel character. In the conversation of perfect superhero casting, Cox and Holland are two names that will be right near the top of the list. Both are perfect for the characters they play, so it was neat to see them interact even for a brief moment. 

What would be cool to hear about would be the off-screen conversations the two had. Were there possibly some more lines that hit the cutting room floor, or perhaps a few little moments where the actors were still in character and were just riffing with the cameras off?

If Daredevil's inclusion in No Way Home is just the start of a bigger plan for the character, then surely this will not be the last time Cox and Holland share the screen. Maybe next time, they might even be in costume. 

Spider-Man: No Way Home is playing in theatres now worldwide.
