Spider-Man: Far From Home sees Peter Parker take on a bunch of new enemies called the Elementals, all of whom pack a decent punch and might be the toughest foes he’s faced so far in his solo films.
But it turns out the deadliest enemy isn’t Vulture, Thanos, or the Elementals. Nope, that title actually belongs to Tom Holland‘s Spidey suit because it could literally kill him for real.
Looks like Spider-Man’s real enemy was, uh, on him this entire time. Kinda like Venom, actually.
In an interview with MTV, Zendaya and Jacob Batalon revealed that Tom’s Spidey suit is actually a skin-tight, one piece ensemble – including the mask – that’s hard to get in and even harder to get out of. So while it looks cool, the pair aren’t exactly envious of Tom getting to wear the Spidey suit.
But for Zendaya, she also harbours a very real fear that Tom could actually die by choking on his own vomit while in the suit.
“I get scared all the time like, what if he’s working so hard that he throws up. And then he can’t— he chokes!”
It sounds incredibly stupid and disgusting yet it makes sense. Say Tom is ill and he needs to lose his lunch, he can’t just take off the mask because of its one-piece design. That means he’s going to be stuck in a pool of his own vomit and he’s in serious danger until someone cuts him out.
That’s… not that implausible of a concern now that I think about it. Gross, yes, but definitely within the realm of plausibility.
It’s actually pretty impressive how much thought Zendaya put into how Tom could potentially die in his Spidey suit, which makes her the perfect person to play the sardonic MJ.
Between getting dusted by Thanos or dying by vomit choke, it seems like Spider-Man isn’t safe from the grim reaper in either fiction or real life.
