- Tom Holland said he nearly cried reading the early reviews for Spider-Man: Homecoming. “I have been on Twitter and it’s been blowing my mind. I woke up this morning and nearly cried. I genuinely nearly had tears falling down my face. You’re on set for 15 hours a day in that suit and it’s hard work. It really is hard. It’s long, its tough – people do a lot harder jobs – but, that said, I put my heart and soul in this movie, and to see that people are enjoying it is so amazing to me.”
- Tom Holland said he found about his casting for Spider-Man like everyone else did. Holland said "I'd worked so hard and it'd been a month since I'd heard anything so I thought, 'Well, I haven't gotten it.' Then one day I'm scrolling through Instagram and Marvel posted this thing about finding out who the next Spider-Man is by going to their website. I thought, what? So I went on the site and it said my name. I freaked out. Everyone in my house was screaming. My poor dog was terrified."
- Marvel Studios also made a choice to not include or reference any characters who had appeared in previous Spider-Man movie outside Peter and May Parker, Flash Thompson and The Daily Bugle. On the DB's exclusion, co-producer Eric Hauserman Carroll said, "We toyed with it for a while, but again, we didn’t want to go down that road right away, and if we do do a Daily Bugle, we want to do it in a way that feels contemporary."
