Tom Holland tells how he found out that Willem Dafoe will return as the Green Goblin in ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’

Now that it is fully official that Willem Dafoe’s Green Goblin will appear in Spider-Man: No Way Home, from Marvel they begin to leave behind their strategy of secrecy in relation to the villains. Tom Holland, who yesterday participated in a event face-to-face after the publication of the second trailer, shared a curious anecdote that he lived with Dafoe. This makes it clear how careful the producer is when it’s time to keep secrets.

According to Tom Holland, Willem Dafoe wore a cape on the set of Spider-Man: No Way Home to avoid being seen by unauthorized glances. Interestingly, Marvel didn’t want Holland to be aware of their presence either, at least initially. However, there was a moment when both actors had to participate in the recording together and, finally, they saw each other. Of course, for the young actor it was a total surprise:

“I ran into this guy in a cape… He took off his hood and I was about to freak out. I thought, ‘shit, the Goblin is here.’

This was the moment when Tom Holland confirmed that the rumors, which have been circulating on the internet for a couple of years, were real. Willem Dafoe joined Spider-Man: No Way Home to reinforce a cast of luxury villains made up of Alfred Molina (Doctor Octopus), Jamie Fox (Electro), Thomas Haden Church (Sandman) and Rhys Ifans (Lizard).
