The third installment in the MCU’s Spider-Man trilogy has received a name: Spider-Man: No Way Home. The announcement was made in a short teaser clip shared by the cast members which features Jacob Batalon (Ned) and Zendaya (MJ) rousing Tom Holland (Peter Parker) for being a frequent spoiler of movies in the franchise.
No Way Home likely references whatever the plot of the third Spider-Man film is. Rumors suggest the film will focus on the multiverse after the events of Disney Plus’ WandaVision, paving the way for villains from other Spider-Man franchises like Dr. Octopus (Alfred Molina, Spider-Man 2) and Electro (Jamie Fox, The Amazing Spider-Man 2) to appear.
The third film is also expected to include appearances from past Peter Parkers played by Andrew Garfield and Toby Maguire. However, those reports remain unconfirmed, so it’s not clear if Marvel will go all-out with the idea of the multiverse in this movie or wait for a later Spider-Verse picture to do some exploring.
Spider-Man: No Way Home is set to be released “only in movie theaters” December 17th, 2021, just in time for Christmas. It’ll start Tom Holland, Zendaya, Jacob Batalon, Benedict Cumberbatch, Alfred Molina, Jamie Foxx, and more.
