The actor, who is the latest to take on the role of the beloved superhero in Avengers: Endgame and Far From Home, was supposed to make an appearance that was eventually cut.
Holland recently shared the news with U.K. publication JOE saying he was “heartbroken” it wasn’t included.
“Yeah, there was going to be another Peter Parker. It was a scene in a train station or something and it was going to be like an Easter egg. I was gonna walk through the background and say like, ‘Hey, kid!’ or something. Never happened. Heartbroken.”

The current Spiderman actor wasn’t the only real-life spidey who was supposed to appear. Apparently, at various times it was also discussed that past stars Andrew Garfield and Tobey McGuire would also lend their voices.
“I don’t want to get into it, but I did write that [scene with all three],” co-director Rodney Rothman told The Q&A with Jeff Goldsmith earlier this year. “But there’s a lot of anxiety, there’s a lot of anxiety around the movie generally and there was anxiety about confusing people.”
While the film was fantastic anyways, we can’t deny how cool it would have been to get all three Spiderman actors in the same scene together.
