Spider-Man: No Way Home will be released on December 17, 2021, assuming there are no production delays and theaters are open at the time. This will be the final release in what should be a busy year for MCU movies, with Black Widow, The Eternals, and Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings all set to hit screens before him. Of course, this assumes the movie world won't be affected by further Covid-related delays, which is hard to predict at the moment.

The three characters for whom we will surely return

At the moment, we only know a few details about the film's cast for sure. Tom Holland will return as Peter Parker, Jacob Batalon will return as Peter Ned's friend and Zendaya will return as MJ; all three were seen in early No Way Home footage (see above). You will also see Marisa Tomei playing Aunt May.

Also, Tony Revolori is set to reprise his role as Flash Thompson.

Other than that, we are in rumor and leak territory. Many characters from the MCU and previous Spider-Man projects are set to return, which is why the anticipation for Spider-Man: No Way Home is so high.

A report has suggested that Benedict Cumberbatch will reprise his role as Doctor Strange in the upcoming film, and on Disney's Investor Day in 2020, Marvel's Kevin Feige confirmed that the events of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness would be linked to the third Spider. -Movie about a man.

We also know that Jamie Foxx will return as the Electro villain from The Amazing Spider-Man 2 in Spider-Man: No Way Home, thanks to a since deleted Instagram post. The Hollywood Reporter says Alfred Molina will also return as Spider-Man 2's villain Otto Octavius, after GWW reported that Molina was seen on set.

How will these villains end up in Peter Parker's reality? Or vice versa? This is the great mystery we are waiting to unpack.

Familiar enemies are rumored to return.

Les rumeurs are allées plus loin quela, with a rapport by Collider suggesting that the past actors of Spider-Man Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield play a role in the film, suggesting a sorte d'équipe multiverselle - Spider-Verse in live-action , can be . However, these claims have since been refuted by Tom Holland.

Finally, for now, we've seen rumors that Charlie Cox will reprise his role as Daredevil from the Netflix series of the same name. The original Murphy's Multiverse report has been corroborated by comicbook.com, which said it was apparently seen on the set of the film. We'll have to wait and see with that, although a February 2021 casting call suggested that an audience scene was being filmed.

It's unclear what the canonical status of the Daredevil TV show is at this point, though we wouldn't be opposed to parts of the series being selected for the MCU.

How is Spidey going to handle all of this?

Spider-Man: No Way Home story details (and rumors)

There is no official plot synopsis for Spider-Man: No Way Home at this time, so everything that follows is an assumption based on pre-existing information.

The third Spider-Man movie is almost certainly going to be about the aftermath of the ending of Spider-Man: Far From Home, where Spidey was basically accused of being a drone-controlling terrorist by Mysterio, and J. Jonah Jameson made an appearance for reveal the superhero. secret identity as Peter Parker. At the moment we can only speculate how this will play out on screen, but the effect on Peter's life will likely be at the heart of this movie's plot.

After Peter revealed his identity in the Marvel Comics Civil War series, powerful magic was used to make everyone forget, so it is speculated that Doctor Strange could do something similar to help him get out of his public identity situation. in the MCU. We will have to wait to see that though, but at least it has been confirmed that there is a connection between No Way Home and the second Doctor Strange movie.

Also, the rumor that many Spidey villains enter the scene may be setting the movie up for a Sinister Six story, essentially a team of enemies to give Peter a more difficult time. Assuming Electro and Doc Ock make the cut, Adrian Toomes's vulture would make a lot of sense, as would Mysterio if he managed to fake his death and survive away from home. There are four: the Scorpion, aka Mac Gargan (played by Michael Mando) already exists in the MCU as well, minus his alter ego. That makes five.

We saw Michael Keaton appear in the trailer for Morbius, the non-MCU spin-off movie from Spider-Man - could Jared Leto's character be the sixth? Or could it be someone else? Again, this is just speculation, but a team of villains seems plausible to us, based on what we've heard about the cast so far. Sony has also been trying to bring Sinister Six to the big screen for a long time, Drew Goddard once signed up to direct a character-based movie.

Meanwhile, the headline "No Way Home" probably refers to Peter having to live his life on the move, unable to protect his friends or family now that his identity is revealed.

What do we want to see from Spider-Man: No Way Home?

Here's our wish list for the third Spider-Man MCU movie.

Balancing the bad guys
If you've read our breakdown of everything we know and everything that has been leaked about Spider-Man: No Way Home, you might be getting some flashbacks. Spider-Man 3, directed by Sam Raimi since 2007, was known to include a similar cast of characters, especially on the villain side, to the disdain of fans and critics alike. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 suffered from the same problem years later.

We hope this Spider-Man movie has learned from these past mistakes and succeeds in integrating its many enemies without losing the thread of the story.

Spider-Verse Links
Into the Spider-Verse is one of the best superhero movies ever made, and it rightfully won an Oscar for Best Animated Feature in 2019. It seems likely that Sony wants to include its various Spider-Men in it. period, and it would be great if No Way Home could connect the dots in a post-credits sequence. Imagine No Way Home ended with an animated Tom Holland teaming up with Miles Morales ...

Daredevil joins the MCU again
Marvel Studios has two options with Daredevil: keep Charlie Cox's Netflix version of the character, or wait a bit and tweak it. Our preference is for them to stick with Cox - the movie doesn't need to explore his baggage from the Netflix show, but just having him in the MCU would be a good love letter to fans of this series.

Another Spider-Man?
