Spider-Man actor Tom Holland has said it was good to be joined by former Spideys in his new movie, because playing the character can be “alienating”.

The actor, 25, has starred as the web-slinger in several films since 2016.

The latest film – No Way Home - sees the return of previous Spider-Man stars Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield.

Speaking on This Morning, Holland said: “You finally have the three Spider-Mans sharing the screen.”

“It was a lot of fun for me,” he added. “Playing Spider-Man is an interesting experience.

“It can be quite alienating, you know, there is only three of us that have ever done it."

"So to have that sort of brotherhood between the three of us and to share the screen and share that moment together was very special," he went on.

The actor was also quizzed about whether No Way Home would be his last outing as the character.

“It could be, but then the first one could have been my last,” he replied.
