In [Spider-Man: Homecoming], there’s a scene the place Spider-Man will get trapped underneath the rubble and I’ve to battle my interior demons to carry up this heavy piece of concrete. And on the day, once I was trapped underneath this pretend rock, I had the masks on they usually had this sort of water drop that was dropping onto the again of my head.
