There's a good reason why Spider-Man (Tom Holland) took so long to die after Thanos managed to collect all the Infinity Stones and snap his fingers at the very end of Avengers: Infinity War.

Though some fans might believed that directors Joe and Anthony Russo decided to draw out Peter Parker's death for dramatic effect, Infinity War's lead VFX supervisor from Weta, Matt Aiken, tells Screen Rant that there was another reason why Spidey lasted longer than the others.

"Spidey's really fighting it. He definitely doesn't want to go and he's fighting… he's incredibly powerful, so he's able to withhold it for a lot longer than some of the others, but in the end he can't withstand it," Aiken explains.

The VFX explanation's definitely makes sense, Peter didn't seem to want to go out so easy at the end of Infinity War, holding on to Iron Man (Robert Downy Jr) saying that he doesn't want to leave just yet. But what's even more interesting about Aiken's explanation is Peter Parker's strength of will. Could Spider-Man really be stronger than the others who've gone with him to the other side? Now that's up to debate. Feel free to share your thoughts in the comment section below.
