Tom Holland has revealed that he was “heartbroken” after his cameo role was cut from last year’s animated hit Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse.

The 23-year-old was one of three current and former Spider-Man actors set to appear in the film, the others being Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire.

Speaking with U.K. publication Joe, he revealed what could have been, saying:

“At one point, I was supposed to be in it. Yeah, there was going to be another Peter Parker. It was a scene in a train station or something and it was going to be like an Easter egg. I was gonna walk through the background and say like, ‘Hey, kid!’ or something. Never happened. Heartbroken.”

While getting cut was probably a bit of a blow to the ego, Tom Holland is doing just fine. He’ll next be seen in Spider-Man: Far From Home, which opens tomorrow in Australia.

The film sees Peter Parker travel to Europe after the events of Avengers: Endgame, and encounter a new character in the form of Jake Gyllenhaal‘s Mysterio.
