Your Official “Spider-Man 3” Title is Here
And now we have an official title for Spider-Man 3, and it turns out, one of those fake titles we wrote about this morning was closer to the truth than we realized. Tom Holland, Jacob Batalon, and Zendaya all shared absurd titles on social media, but the one Holland offered was somewhat close to reality. So no, Spider-Man: 3 is not Spider-Man: Phone Home, but it is…Spider-Man: No Way Home. In case you haven’t been keeping score, this now marks the third film in director Jon Watts trilogy (as in, all of them) to use “Home” in the title. We’ve had Spider-Man: Homecoming, Spider-Man: Far From Home, and now Spider-Man: No Way Home. Poor Peter Parker is getting further and further from Aunt May and his beloved Queens with every fresh adventure.
Sony revealed the title via this video featuring the Holland/Batalon/Zendaya trio. They have fun with Holland’s now well-known affinity for spilling secrets, and provide the title, via a whiteboard the gang walks by, at the end of the reveal:
So what might “No Way Home” mean for Peter Parker and his pals? Remember that the last time we left Parker in Far From Home, he was in Europe and had been successfully framed by Mysterio (Jake Gyllenhaal)’s murder. This puts him in a pretty severe predicament, considering he’s presumably now a wanted criminal. So, the most obvious conclusion is to take “No Way Home” literally and assume we might find Parker literally unable to return home thanks to the whole Mysterio meshugaas. Poor Peter’s possibly being hunted by Interpol (or Nick Fury). We’ve already written about how Benedict Cumberbatch’s Doctor Strange will be involved, ditto Jamie Foxx’s Electro and Alfred Molina’s Doc Ock, the latter two from completely different Spidey worlds. Could Spider-Man find himself trapped in another dimension? Or, will he need Doctor Strange’s help to pop up in other dimensions in order to clear his name? The possibilities are almost literally infinite!
When we learn more, we’ll share more. Spider-Man: No Way Home is slated for a December 17, 2021 release.
