Spider-Man: No Way Home is one of the most anticipated movies this year and probably the biggest Marvel movie since Avengers Endgame, which wasn’t so long ago, but you get the point. Many rumors and leaks are surrounding the upcoming third Spider-Man movie starring Tom Holland and we honestly can’t even separate the legit news from the fake.
Now, according to verified Twitter account BSL (BigScreenLeaks), Spider-Man: No Way Home will feature 6 to 7 villains that will make on-screen appearances. Considering that they specifically said “on-screen”, the real number of villains could be even higher, depending on how the story unfolds.
So far, confirmed villains in the movie are Alfred Molina’s Doc Ock (reprising his role from Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 2), Jamie Foxx’s Electro (reprising his role from Marc Webb’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2), Willem Dafoe’s Green Goblin (from Raimi’s Spider-Man), and Thomas Haden Church‘s Sandman (from Raimi’s Spider-Man 3). That’s four villains confirmed so far. Although the first trailer gave us a little sign that we could see Lizard again, we’re gonna wait with that before we can confirm anything. Of course, there are plenty of rumors mentioning the potential return of Mysterio and Vulture (who’s confirmed to return in Morbius movie starring Jared Leto), all in the favor of possibly assembling the Sinister Six. And let’s not forget Tom Hardy’s Venom after the post-credit scene of Venom: Let There Be Carnage.
Possibilities are endless, and new rumors are coming every day. The movie is only five weeks away, and fans are still waiting for the second official trailer that could potentially confirm (or deny) a few of those trillion rumors that showed up on the internet. One thing is for sure, with its reported runtime of 2 hours and 37 minutes, and with all of its potential, No Way Home will certainly be one big and wild rollercoaster ride.
Directed by Jon Watts, and starring Tom Holland in a titular role, Spider-Man: No Way Home will hit theaters on December 17, 2021. Although it’s been moved in some countries to January 2022.
