Spider-Man: No Way Home has Tom Holland starring alongside his brother Harry, an achievement any decent family man would be proud of, at one point. Ultimately, the movie’s creators had other ideas. According to Tom’s latest remarks on The Graham Norton Show, Harry Holland’s part has been omitted from the final version of the movie.
Although Harry Holland was omitted from the final edit of Spider-Man: No Way Home, his stunts have been made available to the public for everyone to see on the Internet. On Sunday, a video showed Holland’s “robber” figure hanging from equipment that functioned as a stand-in for Spider-trademark Man’s webs started circulating on social media.
Before Harry got all webbed up, the older Holland’s Peter Parker was shown to be following him down. The video below shows the web slinger’s stunts in action.

To promote the picture, Tom Holland stated that his brother’s role had been axed weeks before it opened in theatres.
“We cast Harry and he’s onset. I go up to the stunt coordinator and I’m like, ‘Please just whatever you do with the stunt, make it so he’s upside down.’ We’re doing the scene. Harry’s upside down swinging back and forth. Bless him, he’s doing a really good job,” Holland recalled with a chuckle. “And as the day’s going on he’s got these lines and he’s starting to forget his lines and his eyes are about to pop out of his head.”
As a result, the Marvel hero went on to commend his younger brother for taking on such a challenge.
“So we’re driving home that day and I was actually really proud of him. But he’s driving home that day and he’s like ‘Mate you can complain as much as you want. That is brutal,'” Tom added. “But the icing on the cake, and I don’t think he actually knows this. We saw the film the other day. And they’ve cut the scene. It’s not in the film.”
To get the better of his younger sibling, Holland informed Jimmy Fallon that he was deliberately prolonging the situation.
“At the beginning of the day, I was making the takes extra, extra long just to see how long it would take before he blacked out,” Holland said earlier this year. “But then towards the end of the day, I really did start to get worried about him. And I was sort of saying to the director, ‘Listen, man, we got to move on now. Look at him, he can hardly speak anymore.'”
