From London to New York to Los Angeles, stars Tom Holland, Zendaya and Jacob Batalon have been working hard promoting the latest MCU movie, dropping some juicy details along the way

In anticipation of Spider-Man: No Way Home's big release in cinemas this week, the young cast has been treating us to some pretty juicy soundbites on their massive press tour. Don't expect any spoilers though. Despite some tough grilling, Tom Holland, Zendaya and Jacob Batalon remained impressively tight-lipped about the rumour that Holland's predecessors Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield would make an appearance.

Here are four of our favourite talk show appearances:

The Graham Norton Show

First, Zendaya revealed that one of the stunts was tricky because she was taller that Holland, who plays Spider-Man. The superhero would swing MJ (Zendaya) off a bridge but because of the actors' height difference, Zendaya's feet would land first. She ended up having to catch Holland when they hit the ground, even though Holland was playing the superhero and was supposed to look cool. Still, Holland took it in his stride, quipping: "It's so nice to be caught for a change!"

The youngest Avenger then shared that a limo driver once implied that he wasn't good looking enough to be Spider-Man when he was still auditioning for the role. Watch him tell this hilarious story below: 

Late Night with Seth Meyers

The opening scene of Spider-Man: No Way Home was shown before the interview, adding even more fuel to the excitement surrounding the movie. Holland also related how he got out of his skin-tight Spidey suit on set—with the help of a bottle of lubricant. 

Good Morning America

All three main stars appeared on the show where they touchingly shared how they have grown up together in the last five years working on the Spider-Man movies. "We met when we were 18, we did the first movie when we were 19 going 20. It's incredibly special to do it amongst people that you care about," said Zendaya. Added Batalon, "I'm so glad we have each other in our lives to go through this together—we've become family."

Holland also revealed how he had a drunken phone call with Bob Iger, the former CEO of Walt Disney Company, after discovering he would no longer be part of the MCU, albeit temporarily.

For their appearance, a never-before-seen clip where all three characters imagine what their lives would be like after high school was also shown. Watch below:

Jimmy Kimmel Live

Self-confessed Marvel fan Jimmy Kimmel already had numerous MCU stars on his show over the years, including an epic gathering of all six original Avengers in 2015. The Spider-Man appearance is just as electric especially since it also featured Benedict Cumberbatch, Doctor Strange himself. Sporting Strange's facial hair, Cumberbatch revealed that he was in the middle of reshoots for Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness.

From teasing Holland on his past inability to keep spoilers a secret to Jamie Foxx throwing a dance party on set, there was much to unpack from this appearance. Kimmel also showed a never-before-seen clip from the movie.
