The film has been in Swiss cinemas for around a week. It is already considered one of the most successful superhero flicks of all time.
A worldwide success just two weeks after its cinema release:” Spider-Man: No Way Home “.
To celebrate its success, here are a few fun facts about what is probably the best-selling “Spider-Man” film of all time. Lead actor Tom Holland (25), for example, should have worn a wig on set because his hairstyle did not look like that of his character Peter Parker. Then the 25-year-old refused to continue shooting – and was allowed to play without artificial hair in the end.
When Willem Dafoe first portrayed the cult villain Green Goblin in Sam Raimi's 2003 film “Spider-Man”, he was already in his late 40s. Now the 66-year-old actor wanted to shoot his own fight scenes for “No Way Home”. “I don't just want to act as a cameo or take close-ups. I want to do the action because I enjoy it, ”said the American.
