Of course, No Way Home has already seen huge success since its release back in December. It's become the highest-grossing movie since the pandemic began and is the first movie to bag more than a billion dollars at the box office since 2019.

In fact, the third installment of the Marvel/Sony trilogy is currently the 12th-highest-grossing movie of all time.

The movie itself throws everything and more at its audience, with the multiverse bringing back characters from previous Spider-Man movies, including those played by Andrew Garfield, Tobey Maguire, Willem Dafoe, and Jamie Foxx.

But one of the biggest and most emotional plot twists in the movie came when Peter's Aunt May dies following a standoff with Green Goblin, leaving the superhero devastated.

"The relationship between Peter and May throughout these films has been really integral to the heart and soul of the story," Tom said in a recent interview with "This scene kind of seemingly comes out of the blue, like no one expects this to happen."

Zendaya went as far as to say that she doesn't think May gets the "the credit she deserves" for raising Peter alone and being a great role model for him.

"[May's] a great role model," she said. "She's raised a lovely young man, and she's done it on her own. She doesn't get the credit she deserves."

Zendaya also pointed out that Spider-Man typically puts their focus on father figures in Peter's life, such as Tony Stark.

"It's important to acknowledge May in the respect that everybody is like, 'Oh, he always has to have a mentor.' All these father figures and all this stuff. But May has raised him. Shoutout to May!"

Tom agreed, adding: "She's an incredible role model, shoutout to May."

Despite the emotional turns in the story — including Peter's ultimate decision to have the world, as well as those closest to him, forget who he is — Tom explained that he wouldn't "change a single moment of it."

"Honestly, being Spider-Man has changed my life. It's been incredible. The roller coaster from the moment I got on to the moment we've got off has just been absolutely amazing," he said. "This film really is a celebration of three generations of cinema. I was delighted to kind of be at the helm and be the captain of the ship, which was awesome. It's been incredible. It's honestly been the best thing that's ever happened to me."
