Spider-Man: No Way Home is probably the world recorder in the category of “the movie with the most unconfirmed rumors.” But seriously, we don’t remember that Infinity War and Endgame combined had so many rumors that are confirmed only for certain fans, and for no one else, not even for Marvel.
You probably know what we’re talking about here. Ever since Alfred Molina and Jamie Foxx were confirmed to reprise their respective roles of Doc Ock and Electro they previously played in Spider-Man 2 and The Amazing Spider-Man 2, respectively. For most of the fans, that was enough to be 100% sure that Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield, Tom Holland’s Spider-Man predecessors, will also appear in No Way Home and that No Way Home is almost definitely a live-action interpretation of the Spider-Verse.

Those rumors were never confirmed, although many fans stubbornly looked for any kind of evidence, and Holland and Garfield also denied them. Some rumors were also saying that Charlie Cox will return as Matt Murdock/Daredevil, which Cox also denied.
Now, in a recent interview for the Empire Magazine, Kevin Feige said what he thinks about all those rumors:
“Rumors are fun, because many of them are true, and many of them are not true. The danger is when you get into the expectations game of wanting people to be excited about the movie they get, and not disappointed about a movie they don’t get.”
Considering the situation, we’re pretty sure that’s exactly what will happen. Some fans probably won’t care if the movie is good or bad, they will only care if their favorite rumor became a reality. We’ll see. The movie is closing in and we’re expecting to see what secrets will the second trailer show us, and what they’re saving for the premiere of the movie.
Spider-Man: No Way Home will be released on December 17, 2021.
