It seems to be unavoidable that the leads of any Spider-Man film will date each other. Tobey Maguire and Kirsten Dunst (who played Mary Jane Watson in every one of the three Raimi films) started dating during the first film, however they had separated before the release of its first sequel in 2004. Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone (who played Gwen Stacy in the Amazing films) dated for considerably longer, lasting for quite some time across the release of the two movies, in any event, taking part in a SNL sketch about their on-set relationship. The latest Spidey improvement is that, later rumors had swirled for quite some time, Tom Holland and Zendaya officially affirmed their couple status this December.
In a meeting Amy Pascal was asked why she thought it was the case that each Spider-Man entertainer has dated their co-lead. In spite of the fact that she was not engaged with the franchise when Tobey Maguire was dating Kirsten Dunst, she has been present for both Tom Holland and Zendaya and Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone’s growing romances. She doesn’t know why this keeps occurring, however she encouraged every one of her stars to try not to date because “it can just entangle things,” yet they “all disregarded.” Read the full statement beneath:
“I approached Tom and Zendaya, separately, when we first cast them and gave them a talk. Try not to go there — just don’t. Do whatever it takes not to. I offered the same guidance to Andrew and Emma. It can just muddle things, you know? Furthermore they all overlooked me.”
On-set romances have erupted between co-leads much of the time since the commencement of Hollywood. For sure, several of the industry’s most established couples have met this way, including Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith (who met when she tried out for Fresh Prince of Bel-Air) and Sarah Michelle Gellar and Freddie Prinze Jr. (who met on the set of the 1997 slasher I Know What You Did Last Summer). There seems to be some sort of catalytic sorcery to the cadence of spending hours together on set consistently for a really long time.
While this does check out, it also makes amazing sense why producers like Pascal would need to keep away from this sort of romance occurring. Spider-Man: No Way Home is making cash with no end in sight, and assuming the stars go through a messy separation, that could muddle future movies where they need to star together. Considering that Marvel is as of now fostering a second Spider-Man set of three with Tom Holland, their relationship could affect the following several years of Marvel films
