Last night, everyone’s favorite friendly neighborhood Spider-Man, Tom Holland, swung his way onto Jimmy Kimmel Live.
Clad in (new!) full-costume, but substituting a cone over his head for his mask, Holland chased after Kimmel’s “sidekick” Guillermo Rodriguez, who swiped the mask. After running around for a bit, while Guillermo shouts “pew! pew! pew!” Holland removes the cone. Everyone cheers. It’s the real Spider-Man, after all!
Holland claimed that he ran out of web fluid, and Guillermo snuck up behind him and stole the mask from him while he was waiting for the B38 bus. The reason the Spidey Sense didn’t kick in was because, well, frankly, it didn’t register Guillermo as a threat.
Kimmel then asked Holland whether the upcoming Spider-Man film will be a sequel or a prequel to Avengers: Infinity War — you know, considering the end events of Infinity War, which left Peter Parker in less-than-ideal shape to take back up the Spider-Man mantle.
“I think Thanos is robbing a bank,” Holland said, cutting Kimmel off and pivoting away from the question.
“Why would Thanos rob a bank?” Kimmel asked, trying to get the conversation back on track.
“Because Thanos is poor — bye!” Then Holland, as the youth say, “yeeted” himself off the stage.
Jimmy Kimmel Live took to Brooklyn this week for five special shows, and with Spider-Man: Far From Home also wrapping up filming in Brooklyn this week, Holland may have had a legitimate reason to exit early. Other filming locations for the web-slinger’s next movie include England, Italy and the Czech Republic, hence the Far From Home subtitle. Returning alongside Holland will be Zendaya as MJ Jones, Marisa Tomei as Aunt May and Jon Favreau as Harold “Happy” Hogan. Jake Gyllenhaal joins as Mysterio.
Spider-Man: Far From Home is set to premiere two months after the untitled fourth Avengers film, on July 5, 2019.
