‘Now, they scan me and they can design it and then make a dress, and then try it on me. This is a huge leap in technology. They are more flexible. We can do more with him.

‘Old Norman and the goblins are further down the line and have a few more tricks up their sleeve. Let’s say the dress has been upgraded on.’

Dafoe is returning to the role he played in Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man trilogy (2002–2007) and reveals how a pitch from producer Amy Pascal and director Jon Watts convinced him to join the cast of the flick – Including the returning enemy Electro. (Foxx) and Doctor Octopus (Alfred Molina).

The French Dispatch star said: ‘It was really the pitch. And, like Jamie, I know Amy’s history. He walked me through it, and then John, the director, sort of pitched the whole idea before reading a script and it seemed like a lot of fun and a great solution.

‘And then we got deeper into it, I liked the idea that I was going back to something that was the same but different.’

Willem has previously admitted that he finds superhero movies “too long and too noisy” despite Spider-Man’s part.

Dafoe said: ‘You enjoy doing some of the things that you get to do, because there’s a lot of hardware and there’s a lot of crazy crane shots and things like that. It’s fun.

‘But the stuff is overshot. They spend a lot of money on big set pieces because that’s what the action delivers, and I find them too long and too noisy. But let’s not get into this. I don’t want to bite the hand that feeds me. But, no, seriously, guys. Look, these are not the movies I run into.’
