The actor who plays Abe Brown in "Spider-Man: Homecoming" disclosed in an interview with Live FM said the most difficult thing he did on the movie set was when he was asked to say a line talking about a popular Ghanaian mythical legend Ananse (the trickster spider) and found it not challenging since it was comedic to say the lines.

“It was kind of easy for me and the most difficult thing to do on set, they wanted me to say these lines talking about Ananse and say he’s a trickster and also say the line “Peter Parker is here” and like I was the only one who had a different accent… It felt funny saying the line,” he said.

The Marcello Mastroianni "Best Young Actor Award" winner further iterated that it took him a month and a few days to shoot his scenes and the leading cast were already shooting when he came on set.

“It took me one month and some days to finish shooting. They were already on set shooting before I got there”.

Kwaku Ananse is a famous Ghanaian mythical legend who depicted as a spider known for his cunning, trickster behaviour.
