ALL eyes have been on Tom Holland and Zendaya after the release of Spider-Man: No Way Home, which has since become the second-highest grossing opening weekend film after beating out Avengers: Infinity War.
Following the release of Spider-Man: Homecoming in 2017, fans have been shipping the two stars hard and while they have not officially confirmed a relationship, more details have come to light about what was asked of them after becoming the new faces of the Spider-Man franchise.
Were Tom Holland and Zendaya asked to date?
Despite Holland, 25, and Zendaya, 25, appearing to be in a happy and healthy relationship, it was revealed that the two were actually asked not to fall in love.
After Spider-Man: No Way Home hit theaters, Amy Pascal, the former Sony movie exec behind the first five Spider-Man movies, sat down with The New York Times and revealed that she had asked them not to fall for each other.
“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,'" Pascal told the media outlet.
“I gave the same advice to Andrew and Emma. It can just complicate things, you know? And they all ignored me.”
While Holland and Zendaya are the newest faces of the Spider-Man franchise, Marvel fans will remember previous films which starred Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield and also saw some on-air and off-air relationships.
Following the release of Maguire's Spider-Man in 2002, he started a relationship with his co-star Kirsten Dunst. Garfield also started a relationship with his Mary Jane, who was played by Emma Stone in the 2011 film.
Despite still trying to keep their relationship out of the spotlight, the two were caught kissing in July 2021, which sent shockwaves through the internet.

What has Tom Holland said about his relationship with Zendaya?
In the beginning of their relationship, the two were known for keeping their love life private and off social media, however, the two have since started discussing their relationship and even posting pictures of each other.
"My Spider-Man," Zendaya wrote alongside pictures of Holland on Instagram in December 2021. "I'm so proud of you, some things never change and good thing."
During an interview with GQ in November 2021, Holland sat down with the media outlet where he talked about his relationship with Zendaya, revealing that they "felt robbed" of their privacy.
“I’ve always been really adamant to keep my private life private because I share so much of my life with the world anyway,” Holland told the media outlet.
“We sort of felt robbed of our privacy. I don’t think it’s about not being ready—it’s just that we didn’t want to [talk about it].”
He added, “This isn’t my story; it’s our story. And we’ll talk about what it is when we’re ready to talk about it together.”
How many Spider-Man films are there?
Holland has been the face of the last three films, but there were a few that came before his time in the MCU.
All together, there are eight films, three with Holland, three with Maguire and two with Garfield.
The eight films include:
- Spider-Man (2002)
