Marvel’s Spiderman: No Way Home continues to surpass not just fan’s expectations but now also the Oscars, the 94th Academy Awards has nominated No Way Home for Best Visual Effects.
Tom Holland’s 3rd Spiderman Movie continues to beat global records as the film is reported to surpass James Cameron’s Avatar in the box office. This accomplishment is very hard to believe considering that No Way Home was released in the middle of the covid pandemic.
Spiderman: No Way Home debuted last December and kicked off and grossed with $50 Million on the night alone and an accumulated $260 Million on its first weekend. After being released in theaters in the pandemic era, the film has already made its name as the ‘highest-grossing film of 2021.’
The film was already predicted to win on different Film Academy bodies.
When MCU’s new Spiderman, Holland was asked by The Hollywood Reported on his opinion about the film being nominated for an Oscar, the actor explained, “You can ask [Martin] Scorsese ‘Would you want to make a Marvel movie?’ But he doesn’t know what it’s like because he’s never made one.”
“I’ve made Marvel movies and I’ve also made movies that have been in the conversation in the world of the Oscars, and the only difference, really, is one is much more expensive than the other. But the way I break down the character, the way the director etches out the arc of the story and characters — it’s all the same, just done on a different scale. So, I do think they’re real art.” Holland explained.
Holland furtherly explained, “When you’re making these films, you know that, good or bad, millions of people will see them, whereas when you’re making a small indie film, if it’s not very good no one will watch it. So it comes with different levels of pressure. I mean, you can also ask Benedict Cumberbatch or Robert Downey Jr. or Scarlett Johansson — people who have made the kinds of movies that are ‘Oscar-worthy’ and also made superhero movies — and they will tell you that they’re the same, just on a different scale. And there’s less Spandex in ‘Oscar movies.'”
Tom Rothman, chairman of Sony Pictures Motion Picture Group also explained, “This is a big picture on the big screen at a moment when the big screen experience is fighting for its life. This is a chance for the Academy to strike a blow for the big screen.”
Now that No Way Home finally made it to the Oscars, we will definitely Spiderman on Oscar’s 94th Academy Awards, March 27, 2022.
