The social media stunt nonetheless had its twelve hours of enjoyable. Tom Holland reported the title as Spider-Man: Cellphone Dwelling.

Co-star Jacob Batalon claimed that it’s Spider-Man: Dwelling Wrecker.

Zendaya, in the meantime, insisted the title was Spider-Man: Dwelling Slice.

Most significantly, every star shared new photos from the movie, so you’ll want to scroll by every put up.

Just one Spider-Man

Whereas Zendaya has all however confirmed that Alfred Molina is involved in the upcoming Spider-Man: No Way Home, the rest of the multiverse theories took a hit during a Tom Holland interview with Esquire. Speaking about previous Spideys Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield, Holland said “No, no, they will not be appearing in this film. Unless they have hidden the most massive piece of information from me, which I think is too big of a secret for them to keep from me. But as of yet, no.

We’re pulling this as much as the highest as a result of in what’s someway not stunning but concurrently surprising information, The Illuminerdi reports that both Willem Dafoe and Thomas Hayden Church will reprise their roles as Norman Osborn/The Green Goblin and Flint Mark/The Sandman in Marvel’s upcoming Spider-Man.

That brings the currently reported tally from the Raimi trilogy to Tobey Maguire, Kirsten Dunst, Alfred Molina, Dafoe, and Hayden Church. The Amazing trilogy reportedly stands at Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, and Jamie Foxx.

It’s important to note, however, that star Tom Holland has denied at least the involvement of Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire.

Production underway

Originally scheduled to begin production in Atlanta in July, the threequel was delayed by the coronavirus pandemic. In October 2020, star Tom Holland shared an Instagram Story of himself arriving on set, officially signaling production was underway. He was even nice enough to release a public service announcement from the set:

While there’s plenty of speculation around what Spider-Man: No Way Home will be about, we haven’t gotten a real logline or confirmation of any story details. But in one interview from the set, star Zendaya told Variety her character would be “running from aliens.” To date, the MCU’s Spider-Man movies have been mostly grounded on Earth (with Spidey himself venturing beyond in the Avengers movies). If Mary Jane is running from aliens, this may be the first Spider-Man to expand to the cosmos.

The cast

The casting rumor mill on Spider-Man: No Way Home has been churning nearly constantly. What we definitively know is that Tom Holland will be back as Peter Parker and Zendaya will return as MJ. Likewise, Jacob Batalon has confirmed he’s reprising his role as Peter’s lovable best friend, Ned, and Deadline reports that Tony Revolori will return as Flash Thompson — although Sony has yet to confirm it. It’s also probably safe to assume that Marisa Tomei will be back as Peter’s Aunt May.

As with many MCU films, Spider-Man: No Way Home will feature a superhero team-up. Benedict Cumberbatch will reprise his MCU role as Doctor Strange, who will likely assume the role of Peter’s mentor after the passing of Tony Stark in Avengers: Endgame.

The biggest news, however, is that villains from Sony’s two earlier franchises are joining the MCU. The Hollywood Reporter revealed in October 2020 that Jamie Foxx is reprising his role as Electro from The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Alfred Molina is also back as Doctor Octopus, who he played in 2004’s Spider-Man 2.

These castings, along with widespread, unconfirmed rumors that Tobey Maguire, Andrew Garfield, Kirsten Dunst, and Emma Stone may all be in line to reprise their roles from Sony’s earlier Spider-Man films, have driven speculation that the upcoming movie will deal with the multiverse (or possibly the villainous Sinister Six). (Notably, Holland has denied Garfield and Maguire’s involvement.)

Take the rumors with a grain of salt, however, as Sony’s only comment on those latter castings to date is “those rumored castings are not confirmed.” Marvel President Kevin Feige, however, was less cagey when asked to confirm the casting rumors. “The biggest clue is the title of the second Doctor Strange movie, “he said. “That’s the biggest clue of where the Multiverse of Madness is taking us and how we’re exploring that.” That sounds like the multiverse will definitely be at play in Spider-Man: No Way Home.

That hasn’t stopped the rumors from swirling, as even more recently, Charlie Cox has been rumored to be reprising his role as Daredevil from the Netflix series in the upcoming movie.

The discharge date

The at present untitled undertaking informally often called Spider-Man: No Manner Dwelling is scheduled to be launched in theaters on December 17, 2021. Nonetheless, that date has already been moved a number of instances because of the coronavirus pandemic’s influence on the theater business. The latest date change was from November 5, 2021, after Black Widow was delayed and Avatar 2 was moved again a yr.

A lot depends upon the worldwide state of affairs by the top of 2021. Sony head Tony Vinciquerra is on report saying the third Spider-Man will solely be launched in theaters which can be “open and working at important capability.”

The plot

Neither Marvel nor Sony have launched something official concerning the third Spider-Man film’s plot. However that hasn’t stopped the web from setting itself on fireplace with hypothesis. Tom Holland has, nevertheless, informed the Inquirer that the upcoming film is “completely insane.”

Based mostly on the casting information that’s been launched, it actually seems to be heading towards madness.

The post-credits scene of Far From Dwelling left Peter in a terrifying place: Outed as Spider-Man by Mysterio and J. Jonah Jameson. Provided that Mysterio is a grasp of phantasm, it’s solely doable that he’s nonetheless alive, leaving open the opportunity of the Sinister Six enjoying a job within the upcoming film. Following the casting of Electro and Doc Ock, that rumor has solely gained traction.

Nonetheless, there’s nothing official, and no one can say exactly how all of those rumors and confirmed castings will finally coalesce.
