Unveiled via star Tom Holland‘s Instagram account, the title will be Spider-Man: No Way Home. It will be released only in theaters around Christmas 2021.
Prior to the reveal, a few fake titles had been dropped by the film’s cast members across social media.
In a video posted to Holland’s Instagram, the Spider-Man lead is seen walking out of director Jon Watts’s office, where Zendaya (who plays MJ), and Jacob Batalon (who portrays Ned) are waiting.
“All right, so?,” asks Zendaya.
“Gave us a fake name again,” says Holland. “I just don’t understand why he keeps doing this.”
“You don’t understand? I feel like it’s pretty obvious,” says Batalon. “You spoil things.”
“I don’t spoil things! Name one thing that I’ve actually spoiled,” retorts Holland.
“The last… movie title,” replies Zendaya, referencing the time in 2018 where Holland accidentally revealed the title of the last Spider-Man movie (Far From Home) on his social media.
Previous fake titles for the forthcoming Marvel and Sony movie, revealed on Instagram, include Holland’s: Spider-Man: Phone Home, Zendaya’s: Spider-Man: Home Slice, and Batalon’s: Spider-Man: Home-Wrecker.
As previously reported, a few fan-favorite characters from previous Spider-Man movies are set to appear in Spider-Man 3, leading fans to believe that the latest installment will feature a multiverse.
Alfred Molina will reprise his role as Doctor Octopus (from the Tobey Maguire Spider-Man movies), and Jamie Foxx is said to be reprising his role as Electro (from the Andrew Garfield Spider-Man movies).
Also, Benedict Cumberbatch, who plays Doctor Strange, is set to appear as well.
Spider-Man: No Way Home will be out only in theaters in the US on 17 December.
