Holland’s comments about the scene came during a London event promoting the film.
As seen in the video above shared, Holland first begins by saying, “Something they’ve never seen before. Action sequences that will surpass any Spider-Man movie we’ve seen in the past.”
“I think the stakes and emotion. This film feels very grounded while also maintaining that fantastical element that superhero films have,” he continued.
“And also, it’s really fun. It’s funny. I think it’s the funniest one we’ve made,” Holland said.
“You know, Jamie Foxx has one of the funniest scene in any Marvel movie in this film. And it is essentially taking the piss out of all superhero films and I love it. It’s excellent.” the actor concluded.

“When he enlists Doctor Strange’s help to restore his secret, the spell tears a hole in their world, releasing the most powerful villains who’ve ever fought a Spider-Man in any universe,” it continues.
The synopsis concludes, “Now, Peter will have to overcome his greatest challenge yet, which will not only forever alter his own future but the future of the Multiverse.”
