Spider-Man and Doctor Strange Are Definitely Not Friends In No Way Home!

Spider-Man and Doctor Strange

Tom Holland says Spider-Man and Doctor Strange are not friends in the upcoming Spider-Man: No Way Home and gave a brief a break down of their relationship.

Tom Holland and Benedict Cumberbatch rejoined as the Marvel Cinematic Universe heroes after being snapped back in Avengers: Endgame. Nonetheless, while the world might have been saved from Thanos and his army, the Mad Titan was just a glimpse of something larger for dangers the two will have to face.

Is seems like Spider-Man: No Way Home story will start exactly after the post-credits scene of Spider-Man: Far From Home, in which Jake Gyllenhaal’s Mysterio has uncovered Peter Parker as the real webslinger and framed him for his murder. Desperate to return to his ordinary life, Parker goes to Strange to play out a spell that will eradicate everybody’s memory of his double personality. The spell turns out badly, boom, the ways to the multiverse are opened, setting the two against Alfred Molina’s Doctor Octopus, Jamie Foxx’s Electro and an undefined Green Goblin from alternate realities.

Preparing for the film’s release, Holland talked with Total Film to offer some understanding for Spider-Man: No Way Home. Holland prods that the connection between his nominal webslinger and Cumberbatch’s Doctor Strange will be somewhat more convoluted and “breaks down” as the film continues, expressing that Spider-Man and Doctor Strange are “certainly not friends” before the end. Check out Holland said below:

“It’s a very different relationship [from Tony Stark and Peter Parker]. I wouldn’t consider Doctor Strange as a mentor in this film – it’s more as a colleague. At this point in the films, Spider-Man has established himself as quite a powerful and serious Avenger. Doctor Strange sees that in him, and treats him like an equal. And throughout the course of the film, their relationship breaks down. And rather than becoming colleagues – they don’t become enemies, but they’re definitely not friends.

Spider-Man always wants to please everyone. He always wants everyone to be happy. And then, in this instance, that’s not the case. It’s an interesting relationship. It’s very, very different from the one of Tony and Peter. But it’s a fun one. And obviously Benedict [Cumberbatch] – I love him to bits. He’s such a good guy. I’ve worked with him loads of times now, and I’ve always really enjoyed it. He’s been a real joy and pleasure to work with. Spider-Man and Doctor Strange are a great mix. They look great onscreen. The balance between them is very funny.”

The dynamic between Spider-Man and Doctor Strange in Spider-Man: No Way Home has been a state of interest among MCU fans since Cumberbatch was first reported as a main cast part for the threequel. Many accepted the Sorcerer Supreme would take on a mentor job like Iron Man in Spider-Man: Homecoming and Mysterio in Spider-Man: Far From Home before his antagonistic reveal. Holland’s new remarks, in any case, point towards a more intriguing connection between the two that breaks the recipe set by the past two installments in the franchise.

The most interesting thing to note from Holland’s new Spider-Man: No Way Home comments is the tease that the connection among him and Doctor Strange “breaks down.” Given Parker went to Strange for help, one would figure the last option would concede his own problem for what’s to come from the wrong spell, however the trailers for the film have prodded the two being at odds for few moments, to be specific as Strange condemns Parker for attempting to carry on with two lives and the epic shot of the former blasting the latter’s spirit out of his body. The truth will surface eventually for the two heroes when Spider-Man: No Way Home hits theaters on December 17.
