In an interview with Variety, the star of the Marvel Studios arachnid franchise, Jacob Batalon, reacted to the idea that his character ends up becoming The Hobgoblin, as it does in the comics. This possibility has always existed, but has never been contemplated to date. When asked if he would be the villain of Spider-Man 4, the actor said something interesting. He commented that he has learned all these years not to say anything about rumors and speculation. He could already say the same to his friend and partner of his Tom Holland!
“From all my years of working at Marvel Studios, I feel like I’ve learned just not to say anything. Actually, I can’t talk about these things or say that something could be true and make a spoiler, do you understand me?” Jacob Batalon explained about the possibility of being El Duende in Spider-Man 4. The actor also talked about how to deal with fame by being in one of the most successful franchises of all time.
“I’ve learned a lot about fame and about experiencing the world and what it really means to be someone admired, in a way,” said the actor, who did not want to comment on 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 have a longer life«.
