‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’: When will we see Tom Holland swing into action?
It’s been over two years since fans have seen Tom Holland swinging around as Spider-Man. Now that Marvel movies are officially back on some kind of release schedule, they won’t have to wait much longer to see the friendly neighborhood superhero again. His next solo outing, Spider-Man: No Way Home, is set to swing into theaters on December 17th.
2019’s Spider-Man: Far From Home ended on a pretty massive cliffhanger. Fans were thrown into a whirlwind in the film’s closing minutes. When things ended, Mysterio had framed Spider-Man for his own crimes and had revealed Peter Parker’s identity to the world. For some added meta-excitement, those big reveals were delivered by J.K. Simmons, who was triumphantly reprising the role of J. Jonah Jameson.
There are a ton of rumors swirling around about Spider-Man: No Way Home, and some of the most exciting ones have already been confirmed by different members of the production. Expectations for the film are higher than usual, but there’s every reason to think Marvel is going to deliver something epic this December. Come take a look at what details we know for sure.
There will be a number of familiar faces, aside from Tom Holland, when Spider-Man returns to theaters this December. Zendaya will once again be appearing as Peter Parker’s love interest M.J. Watson. Also returning are Jacob Batalon as Ned Leeds, the nerdy & spectacular best friend of Peter Parker, and Marisa Tomei as Peter Parker’s guardian Aunt May.
Of course, you probably already knew that you would be seeing all of them again. The more exciting familiar faces come from a little further back in Spider-Man lore. J.K. Simmons is once again playing J. Jonah Jameson, and he’s not the only actor from the Sam Raimi Spider-Man series coming back. Alfred Molina admitted that he is also returning and will once again be playing Doctor Otto Octavius.
Jamie Foxx, from the Marc Webb-directed Amazing Spider-Man films, is going to be showing up at some point, too. He’s rumored to be playing a different version of the villain Electro he previously portrayed in The Amazing Spider-Man 2. We’ll also see Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange, and some rumors say that Charlie Cox, from the Netflix Daredevil series, will be making an appearance in the film.
From the moment J.K. Simmons appeared in Spider-Man: Far From Home, fans were speculating that the next Spider-Man movie might introduce the multiverse. Once Alfred Molina confirmed that he was playing Doc Ock in the film, those rumors exploded. For their part, Marvel hasn’t said anything one way or the other, though Kevin Feige did begrudgingly confirm Molina’s casting after the actor accidentally spilled it.
Because there are so many actors from previous Spider-Man movie franchises, everyone is wondering if previous Spider-Men could be showing up as well. Marvel has flat-out denied the involvement of either Tobey Maguire or Andrew Garfield. In multiple interviews, the actors themselves have denied their involvement, but that has done little to dissuade fans who want to see both actors wearing the red and blue spandex again.
It’s likely that Marvel will hold off on releasing even the tiniest details about the plot of No Way Home until the very last minute. No matter what they say, Spider-Man fans want to see Tom Holland, Tobey Maguire, and Andrew Garfield together so badly that rumors won’t go away until the film is in theaters. Even if the film isn’t about a multiversal team-up of Spider-Men, it’s still going to be spectacular.
