CINEMA: Zendaya claims that Willem Dafoe scared everyone during the filming of Spider-Man: No Way Home.

Tom Hol­land recalls the spooky race with Willem Dafoe’s Gob­lin on Spi­der-Man: No Way Home Set
Willem Dafoe’s wel­come return as Green Gob­lin has been tout­ed as one of the nicer aspects of Spi­der-Man: No Way Home. The sequel ful­ly embraces its trick of bring­ing in char­ac­ters from pre­vi­ous Spi­der-Man movie uni­vers­es, and that includes sev­er­al char­ac­ters from Sam Raim­i’s orig­i­nal film tril­o­gy. Dafoe pre­vi­ous­ly played Green Gob­lin in the very first Spi­der-Man movie, and he was fea­tured exten­sive­ly in the mar­ket­ing lead­ing up to that new movie’s release along­side Alfred Moli­na and Jamie Foxx.

After the film’s release, Tom Hol­land and Zen­daya opened up about what it was like to work with the stars of the return­ing fran­chise. As far as Dafoe was con­cerned, Zen­daya was shocked at how the actor was so nice to every­one behind the scenes to be so con­vinc­ing­ly per­verse dur­ing the tran­si­tion to char­ac­ter. In fact, as Mar­vel feast­ed on, she says Dafoe end­ed up scar­ing every­one on set.

“Very scared of every­one, to be hon­est… The coolest thing is every­one is so adorable, and then they just play these real­ly evil char­ac­ters. Are you? ’ And then, [imi­tates the voice of the Green Gob­lin,] like whoa. ”

For his part, Hol­land was impressed with the num­ber of dif­fer­ent ways Dafoe was able to deliv­er each line. Hol­land says he’s nev­er seen an actor give a direc­tor “so many options” like he saw Dafoe do on the set of Spi­der-Man: No Way Home.

“I’ve nev­er worked with an actor who was able to give a direc­tor so many options. He has that one speech in the movie where he talks about Peter’s kind of exis­ten­tial cri­sis. He must have done the scene 30 times and they were all different. ”

Per­haps one of the rea­sons that Willem Dafoe’s return to the role res­onat­ed so well is that he took it very seri­ous­ly. One of his con­di­tions before sign­ing was that he could do his own stunts, as the vet­er­an actor insist­ed on being phys­i­cal for the role. He’s just one of many major char­ac­ters to appear in this new movie, but for many fans he has cer­tain­ly stood out.

Jon Watts is direct­ing Spi­der-Man: No Way Home from a screen­play by Chris McKen­na and Erik Som­mers. The syn­op­sis reads: “With Spi­der-Man’s iden­ti­ty now revealed, our friend­ly neigh­bor­hood web-slinger is unmasked and is no longer able to sep­a­rate his nor­mal life as Peter Park­er from the high stakes of being a super­hero. When Peter asks Doc­tor Strange (Bene­dict Cum­ber­batch) for help, the stakes get even more dan­ger­ous, forc­ing him to find out what it real­ly means to be Spider-Man. ”

Tom Hol­land stars as Peter Park­er along with oth­er return­ing stars from the Spi­der-Man series includ­ing Zen­daya, Jacob Bat­alon and Marisa Tomei. The film was an incred­i­ble suc­cess smash­ing records left and right, gar­ner­ing uni­ver­sal praise even with sev­er­al months of immense hype. Mar­vel and Sony want to keep this train mov­ing with reports of anoth­er tril­o­gy in place with the return of Tom Hol­land. For now, you can see Spi­der-Man: No Way Home in theaters.
