There’s been a lot of drama surrounding what the title of the third MCU Spider-Man would be. While there has been a lot of speculation, Tom Holland (Peter Parker/Spider-Man), Zendaya (MJ), and Jacob Batalon (Ned Leeds) released their own silly titles so that they could have fun at our expense. Of course, this was all just a tease that led up to the moment everyone has been waiting for. Spider-Man’s next big solo superhero epic is titled “Spider-Man: No Way Home.”
Here’s the official tweet:

Once again, Jon Watts uses “Home” as a titular motif the latest MCU Spider-Man film. “Homecoming” signaled Spidey’s official web slinging debut in his first standalone film in the MCU. “Far From Home” was the first time that the Webhead had to do things by himself without the aid of his late mentor, Tony Stark. So, what could “No Way Home” be about? Well, there have been multiple reports that the film leans into the multiverse as a plot device. This wouldn’t be the first time the idea was used as introduced in “Far From Home.” However, that idea instantly crumbled when Mysterio revealed that he used the theory as a cover to commit various crimes.
But to have the MCU contained in one single universe would be creatively limiting for the MCU. Since Doctor Strange’s (Benedict Cumberbatch) is in the sequel, there is no way that “No Way Home” does not involve any of the previous Spider-Mans from the previous film franchises. After all, actors like Alfred Molina, who played Doctor Octopus in Sam Raimi’s “Spider-Man 2,” and Jaimie Foxx, who played Electro in “The Amazing Spider-Man 2,” are a part of “No Way Home.” Though Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield aren’t officially cast – with repeated denials of their involvement by Holland – they have been reported to be seen on the film’s set.
“Spider-Man: No Way Home” is tentatively scheduled to theaters on December 17, 2021.
