After the release of Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) and Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019), we’ve all been waiting for the sequels for a long time. The final film saw Spider-man’s identity being revealed to the public. So, we’ve been waiting to see the consequences. Last year, some news about the film came out when we learned that now we are going to the multiverse. This opens up the possibility of appearances from Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield as well. However, nothing is really confirmed. Now after some time, new information surrounding the film has emerged.
Until now, the film was untitled but now it seems that Spider-Man’s next big screen adventure has a name. This is done through a kind of marketing aimed at Marvel fans, following social media posts prepared by the cast.
The trio of Spider-Man, Tom Holland, Zendaya and Jacob Battalion shared a different glimpse of Spider-Man 3 on Tuesday. Initially, the fans were excited to finally see news related to the film. But when they found out the three actors posted different movie names, it became clear that Marvel fans were being made fun of.
But the good thing that comes out of this post is, we got some stills from the film. Starts with Tom Holland, his post shows Peter Parker, Ned and MJ looking a little worried about standing in some kind of abandoned place. The title card distributed by him reads Spider-Man: Phone Home.
Jacob Battalion shares the next picture where the three of them are at the bottom of the stairs, looking a little scared. The title card distributed by him reads Spider-Man: Home-Wrecker.
Lastly, images shared by Zendaya shows Ned looking concerned working on his laptop while Peter Parker and MJ take a look. The title card distributed by him reads Spider-Man: Home-Slice.
The Spider-Man Multiverse Theory
It is proven that this post is just a joke against Tom Holland, who is known to have many things in the past. But, Marvel fans are starting to wonder if the names of these titles are really a clue to the film. We’ve all heard of films that have a ‘Spider-Verse’ connection before. So, fans theorized how the names of the titles became a reference for the plot of an upcoming film.
The title ‘Home Slice’ could be a reference to Tobey Maguire’s Peter Parker, who in Spider-Man 2 was a part-time pizza delivery man. ‘Phone Home’ can be a reference to a scene in Andrew Garfield’s ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’ series. Meanwhile, ‘Home Wrecker’ is believed to be a reference to exchanging flirty Tony Stark and Aunt May in ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’.

On Wednesday, via coordinated posts by Tom Holland, Sony Pictures and Spider-Man Movie, the real title was revealed. This video shows how some of the confusion caused by Director Jon Watts, led the trio to make an uncoordinated effort at the disclosure of the title.
The video shows Tom leaving Jon Watts’ room, as he reveals that he was once again given wrong information. She was confused by this when she asked her co-star, “Mention me the one thing I’m actually spoiled for!” Zendaya and Jacob quickly countered how it made sense considering he did reveal the title of the last film. The trio walk out as the camera points to the blackboard which reveals the true title of the movie ‘Spider-Man No Way Home’.
Spider-Man No Way Home Release Date
Sony and Marvel Studios have set a Spider-Man Now Way Home release date for 17 yearsth December 2021. The film is scheduled to be released in cinemas around the world, but may vary depending on the ongoing Pandemic. Previously, three MCU films were scheduled: Black Widow (May 7), Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings (July 9), and Eternals (November 5).
With Filmmaker Jon Watts returning as Director, Tom Holland is set to reprise his role as Peter Parker / Spider-Man. He will be joined by Zendaya and Jacob Battalion as Michelle Jones and Ned Leeds.
Spider-Man: No Way Home will also feature Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange. The film is rumored to be studying the multiverse in which we will see different generations of Spider-Man films come together. This was supported by the casting of the other two members. Alfred Molina, who played Doctor Octopus in Tobey Maguire’s ‘Spider-Man 2’ and Jamie Foxx who played Electro in ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2’ Andrew Garfield is set to appear in the film. The theory discussed above together with this foundry adds fuel to the multiverse speculation.
