Tom Holland loved working with Michael Keaton on ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming‘ but one of his favorite moments was actually when the legendary actor got into character as Batman. Before you get confused, it appears that while Keaton could be terrifying when he was in character as The Vulture, he also had fun ad-libbing here and there.
This last weekend Holland was at Seattle’s ACE Comic-Con and shared this anecdote that while filming ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ Keaton dropped a Batman reference in one of the scenes that were cut!
“Oh absolutely. There’s a great scene – it’s not in the movie, it was cut short – where I carry the Vulture out of the flames when he nearly dies, and I rescue him, and I lay him down on the sand, and he says, I think the line was ‘Why did you save me?’ And I’m like, ‘because I’m Spider-Man,’ and then he goes, ‘But I’m Batman!’”
I’m pretty sure the entire cast and crew had to have broken out laughing here, potentially after a brief moment of being shocked that it had happened. While the scene stood out as Holland’s favorite with working with this iconic showman, it wasn’t the only thing that he enjoyed:
““I will never forget that. He was amazing to work with. Terrifying. That scene we shot in the car was so stressful, was so unbelievably stressful, and we shot it for a whole day, and as soon as you’d call ‘cut’ he was like the nicest guy ever, and you’d be talking about whatever, but then you’d call ‘action,’ and he would sort of become this villain and I’d be like, ‘Okay, cut!’ But it was amazing to work with him.”
It is believed that Keaton will be reprising his role in ‘Spider-Man: Far From Home‘ though we haven’t gotten the official confirmation that will be happening yet.
Would you have been able to keep a straight face if you were Holland and Keaton dropped the “I’m Batman” line? Share your thoughts below, True Believers!
