Not wasting time here are the full cast actors, actress names, and their characters in 2021’s Marvel Spiderman: No Way Home movie.
Tom Holland as Peter Parker / Spider-Man
A teenager and Avenger who received spider-like abilities after being bitten by a radioactive spider. The film explores the fallout of Spider-Man: Far From Home’s (2019) mid-credits scene, in which Parker’s identity as Spider-Man is exposed, and Parker is more pessimistic in contrast to the previous Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) films.
Holland said Parker feels defeated and insecure and was excited to explore the darker side of the character. The adjustment back to portraying Parker, including raising his voice pitch and returning to the mindset of a “naïve, charming teenager”, was strange for Holland after taking on more mature roles such as in Cherry (2021).
Zendaya as Michelle “MJ” Jones-Watson
Parker’s classmate and girlfriend.
Benedict Cumberbatch as Dr. Stephen Strange
A neurosurgeon who became a Master of the Mystic Arts following a career-ending car accident. Holland felt Strange was not a mentor to Parker, unlike Robert Downey Jr.’s Tony Stark in Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017), but instead saw them as “colleagues” and noted their relationship breaks down throughout the course of the film.
Cumberbatch felt there was a close relationship between Strange and Parker because both are “neighborhood superheroes” with a shared history.
Jacob Batalon as Ned Leeds
Parker’s best friend. Batalon lost 102 pounds (46 kg) for his role in this film.
Jon Favreau as Harold “Happy” Hogan
The head of security for Stark Industries and former driver and bodyguard of Tony Stark who looks after Parker.
Jamie Foxx as Max Dillon / Electro
An electrical tradesman from an alternate reality who gained electric powers after an accident. Foxx reprises his role from Marc Webb’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014). The character was redesigned for No Way Home, foregoing his blue Ultimate Universe-based design from The Amazing Spider-Man 2 in favor of one that references his mainstream comic appearance.
Willem Dafoe as Norman Osborn / Green Goblin
A scientist and the CEO of Oscorp from an alternate reality who tests an unstable strength enhancer on himself and develops an insane alternate personality while using advanced Oscorp armor and equipment. Dafoe reprises his role from Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man trilogy. Dafoe felt Green Goblin was “further down the line” with “a few more tricks up [his] sleeves” compared to his portrayal in Spider-Man (2002).
The character also obtains upgrades to his costume to make him more closely resemble his comic book counterpart.
Alfred Molina as Otto Octavius / Doctor Octopus
A scientist from an alternate reality with four artificially intelligent mechanical tentacles fused to his body after an accident. Molina reprises his role from Raimi’s Spider-Man 2 (2004), with this appearance continuing from the character’s story and presumed death in that film.
Molina was surprised by this approach because he had aged in the years since he made that film and no longer had the same physicality; digital de-aging was used to make him look physically the same as in Spider-Man 2. The mechanical tentacles were created through CGI, rather than through puppetry like in Spider-Man 2.
Benedict Wong as Wong
A Master of the Mystic Arts and Strange’s mentor and friend.
Tony Revolori as Eugene “Flash” Thompson
Parker’s classmate and rival.
Marisa Tomei as May Parker
Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker / Spider-Man
An alternate version of Parker. Garfield reprises his role from Webb’s The Amazing Spider-Man films.
Tobey Maguire as Peter Park
An alternate version of Parker. Maguire reprises his role from Raimi’s Spider-Man trilogy.
Additionally, Rhys Ifans reprises his role as Curt Connors / Lizard, a scientist from an alternate reality who attempted to engineer a regeneration serum to help regrow limbs and human tissue, but transformed into a large reptilian monster, from Webb’s The Amazing Spider-Man (2012), while Thomas Haden Church reprises his role as Flint Marko / Sandman, a small-time crook from an alternate reality who received sand-like abilities following an accident, from Raimi’s Spider-Man 3 (2007).
Reprising their roles from previous MCU Spider-Man films are Angourie Rice as Betty Brant, Parker’s classmate, and Leeds’ ex-girlfriend; Hannibal Buress as Coach Wilson, Midtown School of Science and Technology’s gym teacher; Martin Starr as Roger Harrington, Parker’s academic decathlon teacher; J. B. Smoove as Julius Dell, Parker’s teacher; Jorge Lendeborg Jr. as Jason Ionello, Parker’s classmate; and J. K. Simmons as J. Jonah Jameson, the host of TheDailyBugle.net.
Charlie Cox reprises his role as Matt Murdock from Marvel Television’s Netflix series. Paula Newsome and Arian Moayed appear as Parker’s MIT administrator and Agent Cleary, respectively.
Tom Hardy appears uncredited in the mid-credits scene as Eddie Brock / Venom, reprising his role from Sony’s Spider-Man Universe.
Holland’s brother Harry was set to make a cameo appearance as a drug dealer, after doing the same in Cherry, but his scenes were removed from the final cut.
