톰 홀랜드 "스파이더맨, 다정한 이웃에서 전 세계 구하는 영웅으로"
For the South Korean premiere of 'Spider-Man: Far from Home' the main cast including Tom Holland and Jake Gyllenhaal... held a press conference in Seoul earlier today.
Kan Hyeong-woo got to talk to the stars of the latest installment in the Marvel cinematic universe.
"But you know, this film is about Peter Parker and Spider-Man realizing that he needs to step up and fill this void that was left by Iron Man and become an Avenger, and he's no longer the friendly neighborhood's Spider-Man. He's the friendly world-saving Spider-man. So it's just a film about a young kid growing up and figuring out where he belongs in the world."
Taking on the role of a Marvel superhero for the first time, Gyllenhaal had one thing in particular to say.
"I never really knew how much I would enjoy wearing spandex."
Gyllenhaal said the opportunity of playing the role of Mysterio... came along as he was looking to let his imaginations run wild and have fun.
"I think he(Mysterio) is pretty extraordinarily intelligent. He has super powers, but I think his best superpower is his intelligence and his ability to strategize and to see a number of steps ahead of everyone playing the same game."
When asked about what it was like to work alongside Gyllenhaal,... Holland said the two hit it off from day one... and built on their chemistry as the tapes were rolling.
"It was awful. No, it was great. It was a lot of fun. Like I said before, I was, you know, a huge fan of Jake's growing up. And I really enjoyed his films, so I was really excited to get a change to work with him. And then what was even better was when we became such good friends."
While promoting the movie itself,... the two actors did not forget to show their appreciation to the Korean fans.
You guys were so kind to us when 'Spider-Man: Homecoming' came out, my first Spider-Man film. Everyone here in Korea was so supportive. So thank you. . And I hope you enjoy 'Spider-Man: Far from Home'".
"You are such a lovely country and it's been such a lovely time here. And I cannot wait for you all to see this movie. You may think you know what you are in for,… but get ready."
Building on the anticipation of many fans over the latest Marvel film,... the latest release in the Spider-Man franchise premieres at midnight on July 2nd, Korea time.
