Join us as we share everything you need to know about Spider-Man: No Way Home, including details on the cast and crew, the answers to your biggest questions, all the trailers released so far, and so much more.
Spider-Man: No Way Home Release Date
Spider-Man: No Way Home will be released exclusively in theaters on December 17, 2021. If you wish to secure an opening night seat or otherwise, tickets are now on sale.
WILL SPIDER-MAN NO WAY HOME BE ON HBO MAX?
No. Spider-Man: No Way Home is a Sony movie, not a Warner Bros. movie, and therefore Spider-Man: No Way Home will not be on HBO Max at the same time it is in theaters. HBO Max—which is owned by Warner Media—has been the streaming home for blockbuster Warner Bros. theatrical movies like Dune, but it will not be the streaming home for Spider-Man: No Way Home. (At least, not any time soon.)
Spider-Man: No Way Home’s Cast, Actors, and Crew
Tom Holland is once again leading the cast as Peter Parker/Spider-Man, and he will again be joined by Marisa Tomei’s May, Zendaya’s MJ, and Jacob Batalon’s Ned. As was teased in Far From Home, J.K. Simmons will play J. Jonah Jameson in this new film, and he will be accompanied by other returning actors/characters from Spider-Man’s past, including Willem Dafoe’s Norman Osborne/Green Goblin, Alfred Molina’s Otto Octavius/Doctor Octopus, and Jamie Foxx’s Max Dillon/Electro.

Spider-Man is based on the Marvel comic book by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko.
Will Charlie Cox’s Daredevil Be in Spider-Man: No Way Home?
There had been rumors swirling that Charlie Cox, the actor who played Matt Murdock/Daredevil in the character’s MCU Netflix series, would be joining the cast of Spider-Man: No Way Home. In April 2020, Cox denied these rumors by saying, “I hadn’t heard those rumors, but it’s certainly not with my Daredevil. I’m not involved in it.”
Recently, Kevin Feige confirmed that Charlie Cox will remain the MCU’s Daredevil, and many are wondering if that means we will see his character fighting alongside Spider-Man in No Way Home. We won’t have long to find out!
Characters from previous Spider-Man franchises will appear in No Way Home.
The teaser also confirmed a storyline that’s been rumored since the film’s cast was announced: Characters from the old Spider-Man franchises, which star Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield as the web-slinger, will show up in No Way Home. Though all the old villains are rumored to appear, the teaser confirms only two Maguire-era baddies.
Near the end of the teaser, we see a green grenade thrown onto an NYC highway, which blows up as a sinister cackle plays in the background. Both the weapon and the laugh belong to Norman Osborn (Willem Dafoe), a.k.a. the Green Goblin, the villain from the first-ever Spider-Man movie.
In the biggest surprise of the teaser, the very last shot shows Dr. Otto Octavius (Alfred Molina) emerging from a haze of smoke, saying, “Hello, Peter.” The villain, also known as Doc Ock, is the main bad guy in 2004’s Spider-Man 2. In addition to Doc Ock and Green Goblin, fans have also found Easter eggs from other past Spider-Man villains throughout the last half of the trailer.
Is Spider-Man: No Way Home Tom Holland’s Last Film as Spider-Man?
No. Long-time Spider-Man producer Amy Pascal has reassured fans that Tom Holland will continue on as Spider-Man following No Way Home.
“This is not the last movie that we are going to make with Marvel – [this is not] the last Spider-Man movie,” she explained. “We are getting ready to make the next Spider-Man movie with Tom Holland and Marvel, it just isn’t part of… we’re thinking of this as three films, and now we’re going to go onto the next three. This is not the last of our MCU movies.”
