From Jon Watts Spider-Man: No Coming Home has been there for the world to enjoy, the cast and crew are starting to open up about everything now.
Jon Watts recently spoke to Variety and recalled the discussion that took place with Tom Holland, Tobey Maguire, Andrew Garfield, Zendaya and Jacob Batalon:
“We sat on folding chairs in a circle and walked through the script together. I had spoken to everyone separately, but having everyone together to talk about the story, how the pieces fit together, and what Spider-Man meant to them – that was exciting for me. We had the only three actors to ever play Spider-Man in a movie, and each had been through so much, on-screen and off-screen. It was like a Spider-Man therapy session.
Because we had done this work ahead of time, when shooting that first scene with everyone, it was great to step back and see the crew watching, like they were watching the movie. You are capturing something more than a scene from a movie; you are looking at a once in a lifetime event.
Jon Watts also talked about not only the conclusion of his Spider-Man trilogy with Tom Holland, but also the films of Sam Raimi and Marc Webb:
“I’ve always taken my biggest fear and put it at the heart of the film’s theme,” he says. “‘Homecoming’ is about a kid who has a huge opportunity and is so afraid of missing his chance that he creates a disaster. That was my fear: ‘What if I screw this up?’ “Far From Home” is about being scared of making a second movie and messing it up. Peter Parker is given a mission and he doesn’t want to take any chances. “No Way Home” is about trying to finish this story of origin and the responsibility that comes with Peter Parker and Spider-Man mean so much to people and I felt that responsibility.
