Zendaya & Tom Holland Want To See Timothee Chalamet As Spider-Man Villain

This is a fascinating possibility.

Timothee Chalamet would make a great villain according to the young cast of “Spider-Man: No Way Home.”

When asked how Zendaya’s “Dune” co-star Timothee Chalamet could fit into the Spideryverse, Zendaya, Tom Holland, and Jacob Batalon spoke with the Associated Press about their next film.

“I don’t know,” Zendaya said. “People want him to be [Harry] Osborn.”

In the original Sam Raimi Spider-Man trilogy, James Franco played Peter Parker’s best buddy Harry Osborn while Dane DeHaan played him in “The Amazing Spider-Man 2.”

“I think he would be a good friend of Spider-Man,” she went on. “Or a foe of Spider-Man!”

“I think it would be good to bring him in as a [friend] and then he kind of becomes bad, and then he can be a villain. He’d be a good villain,” Tom Holland added, expanding on her idea.

Batalon speculated that it could be Chalamet’s villain origin narrative in order to flesh out the backstory.

He said, “And then he would turn evil because we kicked him out of the friend group.”

“Get him kicked out of the group text,” Zendaya jokes.

Despite the fact that Chalamet was suggested for a villain role, they agreed that it would only be “so good” because the actor is “such a nice bloke.”

“One of my heroes — I can’t say who or he’d kick my ass — he put his arm around me the first night we met and gave me some advice: ‘No hard drugs and no superhero movies,'” Chalamet said in an interview with Time magazine in October.

At the 2018 Los Angeles Film Critics Association Awards, the Beautiful Boy star confessed that he had auditioned for the role of Spider-Man in 2017’s “Spider-Man: Homecoming,” which ultimately went to Tom Holland.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Timothee Chalamet said at the time, “I read twice and I left sweating in a total panic. I called my agent Brian Swardstrom and I said, ‘Brian, I thought about this a lot and I have to go back and knock on that door and read again,’ and he told me the story of Sean Young and how, in an attempt to become Catwoman, [she] had scared everyone away when she showed up at the studio gates in costume.”

“Spider-Man: No Way Home” will be released in theatres on December 17.
