Tom Holland is currently basking in the glory of his recent successful film Spider-Man: No Way Home. His third outing as Peter Parker has him fight several villains from the multiverse in the big MCU adventure. 

In the latest film directed by Jon Watts, Holland is seen fighting villains from previous Spidey films. The film has Peter's life turning upside down after his identity is revealed. In a quest to conceal his identity again, he takes the help of Doctor Strange who cast a spell that opens up the world to other interdimensional villains, such as Doc Ock (Alfred Molina), Green Goblin (Willem Dafoe), and Electro (Jamie Foxx). Fortunately, former Spideys Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire show up too to help Holland deal with these villains and send them back to their respective universe. 

Speaking to Marvel.com, Holland opened up about the film, its heartbreaking moments like Aunt May's death and how he would not change a thing in the film despite all the challenges to shoot it had he have to do it all over again. He said he wouldn't “change a single moment of it.” He also said how playing Spider-Man has changed his life. Calling it an incredible opportunity, which has been a rollercoaster ride for him from the moment he got onto the film, he said it's just been absolutely amazing. "This film really is a celebration of three generations of cinema. I was delighted to kind of be at the helm and be the captain of the ship, which was awesome. It's been incredible. It's honestly been the best thing that's ever happened to me,” he told the portal.
