The latest Spider-Man movie will be hitting the streets of New York once again, and it’s going to be even better than before.

No Way Home sees the return of Tom Holland as Spider-Man, who has to contend with the world finally knowing his secret identity, as well as a whole group of villains invading his world from other universes.

The film also features appearances from the likes of Zendaya, Donald Glover, Brie Larson and Robert Downey Jr.

Here is everything you need to know about the web-head’s new adventure, including the release date, cast, runtime and more (no spoilers though, we promise)…

What Is It? No Way Home is the third instalment in Sony’s Spider-Man franchise, following 2016’s Spider-Man: Homecoming and 2017’s Spider-Man: Far From Home. It sees Holland reprise his role as Peter Parker/Spider-Man, alongside Jacob Batalon as Miles Morales, Laura Harrier as May Parker, Tony Revolori as Ned Leeds, Zendaya as Michelle, Marisa Tomei as Aunt May, Downey Jr. as Uncle Ben and Brie Larson as MJ. The film also features an appearance from Tom Holland’s Spider-Man co-stars Chris Evans, Michael Keaton, Samuel L.

When is No Way Home released?

Good news Spidey-fans: No Way Home is out now in a cinema near you. The film came out in cinemas across the UK on December 15, two days before it makes its debut in other parts of the world – aren’t we lucky!?

Who is in the cast?

There’s a lot of familiar faces joining Spider-Man in the new movie, including Tom Holland, who has starred in Spider-Man movies before and other MCU movies such as Civil War, Infinity War and Endgame.

In this instalment, he will be facing a multitude of villains from Spidey’s cinematic past.

Willem Dafoe returns as Norman Osborn/Green Goblin after having played the role in the Tobey Maguire-led trilogy that ran from 2002 to 2007.

Alfred Molina is also back as Doctor Octopus from Tobey’s Spider-Man 2, while Thomas Haden Church reprises his role as Sandman from 2007’s Spider-Man 3.

Tom Felton, who played Harry Osborn in the Spider-Man 3, will be joining the cast alongside J.K. Simmons as J Jonah Jameson, the newspaper editor who has long been at odds with Spider-Man. Also returning to the cast is Laura Harrier as Aunt May, who was played by Marisa Tomei in Homecoming. In an interview with Collider, Tom Holland revealed that he would be getting up close and personal with a “big” villain. “I think it’s always good to have that big bad,” said Holland.

These are just a few of the returnees from the past two years of Marvel’s cinematic universe, but it’s only the beginning! We’ve seen the return of many fan-favorite characters and heroes from the comics, including Thor, Captain America, Iron Man, Black Widow, Doctor Strange, The Hulk, Black Panther, and Ant-Man. 

These aren’t the only villains making a return, as Rhys Ifans and Jamie Foxx are back as The Lizard and Electro respectively from the Andrew Garfield-starring Amazing Spider-Man movies.

Holland’s Peter Parker won’t be alone in facing this threat from the multiverse, as he will have his girlfriend MJ (played by Zendeya) and Ned (played by Jacob Batalon) to assist him, as well as the sorcerer supreme himself Doctor Strange, once again played by Benedict Cumberbatch.

 

The biggest question for many fans is whether Tom Holland’s Spider-Man will get a helping hand from Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield in this new Spider-Man/Black Panther movie.

The cast has remained very tight-lipped about the rumours so you’ll just have to wait and see what they show up on screen!

What age rating is No Way Home?

The film was given a 12A rating by the BBFC for moderate violence and threat. Films that are classified as 12A generally contain material that is not suitable for children under the age of 12. Children under the age of 12 are allowed to see the film, but they must be accompanied by an adult.

Is this the last Spider-Man movie?

Tom Holland left fans worried over his future as Spider-Man earlier this year when discussing shooting No Way Home with Zendeya and Batalon.

He told EW: ‘We’ve been making these films for five years now. We’ve had such an amazing relationship, the three of us. We’ve been with each other every step of the way.’

Tom continued: ‘We’ve done every single film, every single press tour. So this one scene, [we didn’t know] if this would be the last time [we were all working together.]

But at the LA premiere, producer Amy Pascal declared it’s very much her intention to keep making Spidey movies with Holland, as rumours of a new trilogy have begun circulating.

‘As long as he wants to make Spider-Man movies, we will make Spider-Man movies,’ Pascal told Variety from the red carpet.

‘But I’m a producer, and I always think everything is going to work out. If I have my way we will.’

So, time will tell if No Way Home is the last we’ll see of Holland in the blue and red spandex – but the door seems very much open for Holland to continue.
