"(Tom) We had a funny story, um, where we were doing a scene, what we meet each other for the first time, we shake hands and for a joke, IT's not funny. I don't know why we did IT, but we fed each other watermelon.
(Jake) But you were eating. They passed out watermelon on set for a snack. And then you were eating watermelon and you were a little tired, a little bit of a…
(Tom) I needed some sugar. (Jake)Yeah. So he's started eating and then I tried it and then we just decided to feed each other a lot around."
"Spider-Man: Far From Home" follows Peter Parker, A.K.A. Spider-Man, on a summer vacation to Europe with his friends.
Although the film is based on the Marvel Comics series, director Jon Watts said he tried his best to make the story relatable to everyone who watches it.
"I try to always enter it from a real and emotional perspective as I can. I mean, the world that we're in in these films is great. I mean spider-man now since homecoming has been to space, he is disappeared in a cloud of dust, been gone for five years, come back, fought aliens. So that's not realistic. Um, but for me, I always just try to think about uh, Peter Parker as just one of us, just the most relatable person in this crazy environment. And even though these big world-changing events are happening, how would that feel to a sixteen-year-old kid, and use that to sort of tell a story that hopefully everyone can relate to."
