Tom Holland & Zendaya Explain Why They Don't Want Any Spider-Man Sex Scenes

Tom Holland & Zendaya Explain Why They Don't Want Any Spider-Man Sex Scenes

Spider-Man stars and real-life couple Tom Holland and Zendaya have both weighed in on the prospect of either of their characters having sex in one of the movies- and it sounds like the idea is a bit of a non-starter for a variety of reasons.

The Marvel Cinematic Universe has a long-standing rule that any romantic scenes that go beyond second-base are to be avoided at all costs- But after The Eternals finally broke down that barrier earlier this year by showing Ikaris and Sersi spend a steamy night together, the conversation then moved on to who the next MCU couple to get their card punched might be.

Given that Peter and MJ are the stars of Marvel's latest blockbuster- Spider-Man: No Way Home- and have been an on-again/off-again couple for over 50 years now, you might think that the two of them might finally be ready to take the next step in their relationship, but during a recent interview with Yahoo! Entertainment, the actors seemed less than enthused by the proposal.

"I don't think it's appropriate for the Spider-Man franchise," Holland mused. "We are still very much young kids. Should there be a future for this character maybe one day we will explore that. But at the moment, this is a film about celebrating friendships and young love."

"Peter Parker is like a little brother," Zendaya added before the Spider-Man actor chimed in with. "No one wants to see Peter Parker having sex! That would be horrible."

Elsewhere in the interview, Zendaya explained that shooting the latest Spidey film was a "bittersweet" experience.

"We don't know if we're gonna do another one. Like, is it just gonna be three and done? Normally you do three movies and that's pretty much it, so I think we just were all absorbing and taking the time to just enjoy the moment, being with each other, and being so grateful for that experience."

"When I did the first movie, I was 19," added Zendaya, now 24 years old and an Emmy winner. "It's pretty special growing up all together and being part of another legacy. It's the Space Jam legacy and the Spider-Man legacy. There've been so many different Spideys before us, and just kind of making everybody proud. So I don't know, I feel very lucky to be a part of two kind of major legacy franchises."

Spider-Man: No Way Home is in cinemas now.
