‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ Everything We Know So Far
In just a few short months ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ will premier in theaters. The long awaited follow-up to ‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’ will be arriving at the end of this year. There has been a ton of news circling the internet in the past few weeks. The task of sorting through it all is a daunting but thankfully we are here to help.
Returning cast, confirmed and rumored
Currently, all the main cast including Tom Holland, Zendaya and Jacob Batalon will be returning for ‘No Way Home’. Additionally, most supporting cast members including Marisa Tomei and Tony Revolori will be returning as well. However none of this should come as any surprise to fans.
What did come as a surprise however was confirmation that Alfred Molina will be returning as Otto Octavius. According to director Jon Watts, Octavius’s story will pick up immediately his plunge into the east river in Spider-Man 2. It is still unclear as to how the eight limbed MD will be used in the film, the confirmation of his inclusion is huge.
Adding to the already massive slate of characters is the inclusion of Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange as well as a rumored appearance of Charlie Cox’s Matt Murdock from the Netflix Daredevil series.
Here is where things get a little strange.
Jamie Foxx is confirmed to return to the role of Max Dillion AKA Electro. However, this Electro will apparently be different from the version that appeared in ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2’.
It should also be noted that while both Toby McGuire and Andrew Garfield are both heavy rumored to appear, there has been no confirmation from the studio one way or the other. Although it is clear that ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ is setting up for a live action Spider-Verse film, fans may not want to get their hopes too high.
Rumors about a potential Sinister Six
Recently, rumors surrounding William Defoe’s return to the roll of Norman Osborn have been circling the internet. Specifically, they point towards Norman Osborn leading a team of supervillains against Spider-Man. Fans of the comic books will recognize this team as the Sinister Six.
Currently, as it stands the MCU Spider-Man does not have a ton of established villains to choose from but with the additions of multi-dimensional adversaries that roaster will likely fill up fast.
At the end of the day…
There is only six months separating fans from ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’. Once the dust begins to settle on the rumors in the next few weeks it is very likely that we will see a trailer drop, perhaps with the release of Loki early in June.
