Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures today revealed the official Spider-Man title: No Way Home. The third installment was announced to be called Spider-Man: No Way Home after the cast got to have some fun.
Tom Holland kicked things off with a post that claimed the movie would be called “Spider-Man: Phone Home.” That was followed by Jacob Batalon’s post, which said the movie was “Spider-Man: Home-Wrecker,” and Zendaya then said it was actually “Spider-Man: Home Slice.”
While they kept fans guessing, they did release the first photos from the anticipated December 17, 2021 release and you can view them all here. You can also watch a video of the Spider-Man: No Way Home title reveal below.
It was previously reported that characters from previous Spider-Man movies are coming back, even ones that weren’t in the two Tom Holland movies.
Alfred Molina is said to be reprising the role of Doctor Octopus from the 2004 movie Spider-Man 2, which saw him facing Tobey Maguire’s Peter Parker/Spider-Man. He played the role of Doc Ock to great acclaim and is generally considered one of the top villains in all the movies.
Molina joins Jamie Foxx, who is also returning as Electro from 2014’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2, which starred Andrew Garfield as the wallcrawler.
Benedict Cumberbatch will return as Doctor Strange in the new Spider-Man movie as well, though he has appeared alongside Holland’s Spider-Man in previous Marvel Studios movies.
Spider-Man 3 is being 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, Jacob Batalon, Tony Revolori, and J.K. Simmons as J. Jonah Jameson.
Sony and Marvel Studios have worked together on two Spidey films, including Spider-Man: Homecoming and Spider-Man: Far From Home. The first film grossed $880.2 million worldwide, while the 2019 release earned an impressive $1.13 billion globally.
In Spider-Man: Far From Home, our friendly neighborhood wall-crawler decided to join his best friends Ned, MJ, and the rest of the gang on a European vacation.
However, Peter’s plans to leave super heroics behind for a few weeks were quickly scrapped when he begrudgingly agreed to help Nick Fury uncover the mystery of several elemental creature attacks. Spider-Man and Mysterio (Jake Gyllenhaal) joined forces to fight the havoc unleashed across the continent, but all was not as it seemed.
The well-received Far From Home also starred Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury and Jon Favreau as Happy Hogan.
