Here comes the third Spider-Man, for his third movie. Sony and Marvel have finally revealed the title for the long-awaited sequel to Spider-Man: Far From Home. All it took, was 38-seconds.

First Look

Before the official title was released, both studios and stars posted three new images from the third installment. The images highlight the main trio: Peter Parker (Tom Holland), MJ (Zendaya), and Ned Leeds (Jacob Batalon). It looks like they’ll be discovering ancient artifacts in a rundown building or another possible Sanctum Sanctorum. With those images, the cast also dropped different film titles. The titles ranged from Spider-Man: Home Depot, Phone Home, Home Wrecker, and so on.

38-Seconds

The next day, Sony was the first to release the 38-second clip online. It shows Holland supposedly leaving director, Jon Watts’s, office. He meets Zendaya and Batalon and breaks the bad news that the titles they were given were fake. The three walk through the Sony office discussing the reasons why they were given fake titles. All of which concluded with Holland taking the blame for always spoiling the important movie plots. As they quietly argue, they pass a whiteboard, revealing the official title; Spider-Man: No Way Home.

More Ideas and Nods

MCU and Spider-Man fans finally got to celebrate that an official title has dropped. However, they can’t be stopped when it comes to analyzing each frame of that video. Scattered around the whiteboard, are various title ideas incorporating the word “home” along with some witty comments. Several symbols could be seen like the formula that creates Peter’s web fluid and Iron Man’s arc reactor. The nods were fun and all, but what will the film be about?

Previously on…

The plot looks to pick up months after Far From Home. After being doxed by Mysterio (Jake Gyllenhaal), Peter finds himself with nowhere to hide. His revealed identity puts him and his loved ones, Aunt May (Marisa Tomei), MJ, and Ned in danger. There isn’t a core villain reported for No Way Home, ala Mysterio, or the Vulture (Michael Keaton). However, it’s reported that there will be multiple villains he’ll have to face.

Sinister Six?

Several months ago, reports came out that two villains from different Spider-Man films will return for this third installment. Those key villains are Doctor Octopus (Alfred Molina), from Spider-Man 2, and Electro (Jamie Foxx), from Amazing Spider-Man 2. These villains could collaborate with others like incarcerated Scorpion and Vulture, and a maybe alive Mysterio. One more villain and the film could be getting close to doing a version of the Sinister Six. That team consisted of six villains from Spider-Man’s rogues’ gallery looking to kill the web-slinger. How do villains from different films even find their way into this continuity in the first place?

“It’s All Wanda.”

*SPOILERS FOR WANDAVISION*

Recently, WandaVision wrapped its series with consequences that could tie into No Way Home. In the second post-credit scene, Wanda (Elizabeth Olsen) resides in the speculated fictional, Wundagore Mountain. She’s seen heading into her cabin, pouring some hot tea. The camera pans away from her and into her bedroom. It shows another Wanda, in astral projected Scarlet Witch form, reading the Darkhold (aka Book of the Damned). As she reads to understand her powers, she hears the cries for help of her children, Billy and Tommy.

It’s assumed that Wanda is ready to do anything to get her children back. That would mean going through different universes where they possibly still exist. This could backfire in No Way Home with Wanda unknowingly bleeding various universes together. With powerful magic and multiple villains looking for the web-slinger, he’s going to need more help.

Medical Attention

It was previously confirmed that Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) will team up with Peter as his new mentor and ally. Strange would be able to assist Peter and temporarily stop multiple universes leaking in. It then would prepare him further for his standalone, Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness. Strange will be a reasonable team up, but he may not be the only one.

Spider-Men?

Still waiting to be confirmed, but fans could be getting a live-action version of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. It’s heavily speculated that previous Peter Parkers, Tobey Maguire, and Andrew Garfield, will return to team up with Holland. It would help this current Spider-Man in battle and be enough for Doctor Strange to further investigate Wanda. Where Doctor Strange’s next adventure starts, this Spider-Man may come to an end.

Never Coming Home?

No Way Home may be the last time Tom Holland will play Peter Parker/Spider-Man. Several sources confirm that this will complete his contract with Marvel and Sony. But, like Robert Downey Jr. pre-Phase 3, we could see his contract renewed for a couple more movies. If a break must be implemented to renew Holland, the mantle could be temporarily passed to the character, Miles Morales.

Morales is currently Spider-Man on Marvel’s alternate universe, Earth-1610. He’s mentioned in Spider-Man: Homecoming by his uncle Aaron (Donald Glover) and was the main Spider-Man in Into the Spider-Verse.

All that’s left is to just feel a sense of release that there’s an official title for the installment. Spider-Man: No Way Home is set to release on December 17, 2021. A trailer could be expected sometime this summer. In the meantime, fans could try solving for X in Tom Holland’s t-shirt.
