Actually, I can’t talk about these things or say that something could be true and spoiler, you understand me?«, Jacob Batalon explained about the possibility of being El Duende in Spider-Man 4. The actor also talked about dealing with fame being in one of the most successful franchises of all time.

«I’ve learned a lot about fame and experiencing the world and what it really means to be admired, in a way.«, Said the actor, who did not want to comment anything else about the possibility of being El Duende in Spider-Man 4. «I learned that the most successful people in the world are not terribly stupid. And, most important of all, is to be clear about how I behave. Fame is great, but it’s very fickle. It means more power for oneself, if that’s what you want. But a lot of people, and I include myself in that group, are simply looking to live longer.«.
Lastly, the young star was asked how she felt keeping the secret of the appearance of Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield on Spider-Man: No Way Home. «I think I was just afraid of ruining a big surprise.“, he admitted. «We all understood that it was something transcendental, not just a superhero movie.
