Spider-Man: No Way Home producer Amy Pascal warned Tom Holland and Zendaya not to date.

Tom Holland and Zendaya started working together in Spider-Man: Homecoming. Sometime between their work on that film and up to this point with the release of Spider-Man: No Way Home, the two started dating, which was ultimately confirmed earlier this year due to paparazzi photos that surfaced the web.

It turns out, producer Amy Pascal actually took Tom Holland and Zendaya aside for an important conversation when they were first cast for Spider-Man: Homecoming. The conversation found her warning the two not to fall in love and pursue a romantic relationship. She told The New York Times the following:

“I took Tom and Zendaya aside, separately, when we first cast them and gave them a lecture. Don’t go there — just don’t. Try not to. I gave the same advice to Andrew and Emma. It can just complicate things, you know? And they all ignored me.”

During production on The Amazing Spider-Man films, Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone played Peter Parker and Gwen Stacy respectively. The two would share a real-life romance together for a few years. Based on Amy Pascal’s words, it sure sounds like working together on a Spider-Man film could potentially lead to sparks flying. Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone ignored her requests, and now Tom Holland and Zendaya are following in those same footsteps.

Tom Holland and Zendaya both appear in Spider-Man: No Way Home. Here is the synopsis:

“For the first time in the cinematic history of Spider-Man, our friendly neighborhood hero’s identity is revealed, bringing his Super Hero responsibilities into conflict with his normal life and putting those he cares about most at risk. When he enlists Doctor Strange’s help to restore his secret, the spell tears a hole in their world, releasing the most powerful villains who’ve ever fought a Spider-Man in any universe. Now, Peter will have to overcome his greatest challenge yet, which will not only forever alter his own future but the future of the Multiverse.”

Directed by Jon Watts from a script written by Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers, No Way Home stars Tom Holland, Zendaya, Jacob Batalon, Tony Revolori, Martin Starr, J.B. Smoove, Marisa Tomei, Jon Favreau, Benedict Wong, Benedict Cumberbatch, Willem Dafoe, Alfred Molina, and Jamie Foxx, with Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire.

Spider-Man: No Way Home is now playing in theaters. Stay tuned for all the future of Tom Holland and Zendaya in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and be sure to subscribe to Heroic Hollywood’s YouTube channel for more original video content.
