We’re inching closer and closer to Spider-Man: Endgame. Or, I guess I should say “Spider-Man: Far From Home.” The film’s director Jon Watts called the film “as epic as Endgame.” That’s one heck of a statement to make about the third, and likely final, chapter of the Spider-Man MCU trilogy. Not to be outdone, Tom Holland let loose a little secret scene that left his jaw on the floor.
“It’s four people sitting at a table, having a conversation about what it’s like to be a superhero, and it was amazing,” Holland said. He revealed that three of the four are him, Happy Hogan, and Marisa Tomei. That leaves a mystery fourth character at the dinner table. Whoever could they be?
If you know anything about Tom Holland and MCU secrets, it’s that he likes to let the cat out of the bag a lot. So much so, that I am more than certain they shot extra scenes just to confuse him. So, I decided to take the liberty of coming up with some likely candidates for this dinner scene. Now, when I say likely, I mean likely to confuse the crap out of Tom Holland. Let’s begin, shall we?
I, for one, am a proponent of bringing more Seinfeld actors into the MCU. That said, they would likely come in as Marvel characters rather than as their iconic Seinfeld characters. So, wouldn’t it confuse the crap out of Tom Holland if Elaine showed up for dinner instead of Val or whoever the hell she plays in the MCU. It would be even better if she came over for dinner with her friends Jerry, Kramer, and George. It would be one hell of a Festivus dinner, that’s for sure.
Now, if you want my honest opinion, I think the mystery character in the dinner scene is Tobey Maguire as his version of Peter Parker. So, if you don’t want Tom to spoil that one for us, shoot a scene where Tobey plays himself … like, literally himself. The scene could still work in theory. They can still talk about being a superhero, it would just go in a really, really meta direction.
I’ve been told a lot that I look like a discounted version of Tom Holland. As a skinny white guy with brown hair, I’ve been told I vaguely look like every actor who has portrayed Spider-Man. My point is that it’s probably not hard to find a look alike for Tom. You can’t spoil a scene if you think you only shot the scene with yourself. That’s just some next level thinking right there.
