The critically-acclaimed film is rated PG-13 for sequences of action/violence, some language and brief suggestive comments.
For the first time in the cinematic history of Spider-Man, our friendly neighborhood hero’s identity is revealed, bringing his super hero responsibilities into conflict with his normal life and putting those he cares about most at risk.
When he enlists Doctor Strange’s help to restore his secret, the spell tears a hole in their world, releasing the most powerful villains who’ve ever fought a Spider-Man in any universe. Now, Peter will have to overcome his greatest challenge yet, which will not only forever alter his own future but the future of the Multiverse.
Spider-Man: No Way Home was directed by Spider-Man: Homecoming and Spider-Man: Far From Home helmer Jon Watts.
Cast members returning from those movies include Tom Holland, Zendaya, Marisa Tomei, Jon Favreau, and Jacob Batalon, with J.K. Simmons coming back as J. Jonah Jameson and Benedict Cumberbatch returning as Doctor Strange.
The movie was written by Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers based on the Marvel comic books by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko. The producers are Kevin Feige and Amy Pascal.
The executive producers include Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, JoAnn Perritano, Rachel O’Connor, Avi Arad, and Matt Tolmach.
Spider-Man: No Way Home brings back characters from previous Spider-Man movies, even ones that were not in the previous two Tom Holland movies. While they were not in the marketing, it is now well known that Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield both returned as their respective Spideys.
Willem Dafoe reprises the role of Norman Osborn/Green Goblin, a role he played in the original Spider-Man trilogy directed by Sam Raimi and starring Maguire’s Peter Parker/Spider-Man. Dafoe joins Alfred Molina, who returns as Doctor Octopus from the 2004 movie Spider-Man 2.
Jamie Foxx returns as Electro from 2014’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2, which starred Garfield as the wallcrawler. Sandman from Spider-Man 3 (2007) and Lizard from The Amazing Spider-Man (2012) are also back.
