SPIDER-MAN: NO WAY HOME Tie-In Book Teases Spidey's Visit To "A Whole New Location" And "Mystery And Magic"

A newly revealed description for an upcoming Spider-Man: No Way Home tie-in book seemingly drops a few new hints about what we can expect from Peter Parker's long-awaited return to the MCU...

If you were watching that Marvel Studios preview earlier today and hoping a first look at Spider-Man: No Way Home might be heading our way after that logo appeared on screen, you weren't alone. Unfortunately, we're going to be waiting that little bit longer, but some new details have now been revealed courtesy of a tie-in book that's been listed on Amazon

Titled Spider-Man: No Way Home - Spider-Man's Very Strange Day!, it teases what we can expect (in very vague terms) from the wall-crawler's highly anticipated return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

"This delightful, stylized picture book will take Spider-Man and his friends to a whole new location - one packed full of mystery and magic just waiting to be explored," reads the official description. Written by Calliope Glass and illustrated by Andrew Kolb, the book features the "same vibrant, stylized art and entertaining storytelling style to tap into the third Spider-Man film from Sony and Marvel Studios."

While this book is aimed at kids, the description for the one that tied into Spider-Man: Far From Home revealed some of the European locations Peter Parker visited, so there's definitely something to be gleaned from this. How much we should really read into it is hard to say, but it definitely lines up with what we've heard about Spidey being taken to another part of the Multiverse. 

With any luck, the curtain (cloak?) will be pulled back on Spider-Man: No Way Home soon...


Doctor Strange will also be in Spider-Man: No Way
Home
; here are 10 confirmed facts about that movie!

10. Mysterio's Legacy

Loki3413

Spider-Man: Far From Home wrapped up with Mysterio's death. However, shortly before his defeat, he recorded some footage which was leaked to TheDailyBugle.net which frames Peter Parker for his murder (and the attack on London). 

The aftermath of that will be felt in Spider-Man 3, as set photos have confirmed that the public has very different opinions about the web-slinger and Quentin Beck.

Posters have confirmed that a group called "Citizens To Defend Spidey" has been set up, though there are others which say things like "I Believe" alongside pictures of Beck. 

We may not know how much this will factor into the plot, but we can confirm that not everyone is on Spidey's side.
 

9. Spider-Man Forms Part Of A Trilogy

Loki3413

No, not the Spider-Man trilogy!

That's a given, but Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige has confirmed that Spider-Man 3 will form part of a loose trilogy which also includes WandaVision and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.

We don't know what that means, or what it will entail, but WandaVision director Matt Shakman has confirmed that he's spoken to both Jon Watts and Sam Raimi. 

This has to be a reference to the Multiverse, but we can't say for sure. 
 

8. Spider-Man Has Another New Mentor

Loki34133

Tony Stark was Peter Parker's first mentor in the MCU, but after his death in Avengers: Endgame, the web-slinger found himself with a new mentor in Mysterio. It made sense the inexperienced hero would fall under the spell of the next father figure to came along, but a third time?

Yeesh. 

When the Hollywood trades confirmed that Benedict Cumberbatch will return as Doctor Strange in Spider-Man 3, it was mentioned that the Sorcerer Supreme will take on a "mentor role."

We're not taking that too literally for now, but Strange will be part of this adventure. 
 

7. Jamie Foxx Makes An Electrifying Return

Loki34133

The biggest Spider-Man 3 shocker came when it was confirmed that Jamie Foxx will reprise the role of Electro.

We still have no clue whether he's playing the same version we saw in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, or a new take with the same actor (similar to J.K. Simmons' J. Jonah Jameson in Spider-Man: Far From Home). The latter option seems most likely seeing as Foxx mentioned on Instagram that he won't be blue.

No one really responded particularly warmly to Foxx's take on Max Dillon, but Kevin Feige's decision to bring him back can be explained by how poorly directed the Oscar-winner was in 2014. 

We don't know what this means for the Multiverse, but we can't wait to see what Foxx can do as this villain in the MCU.
 

6. Dane DeHaan Won't Return As Green Goblin

Loki341333

Almost as soon as Doctor Strange was added to the film, the Multiverse rumors started. Then, Jamie Foxx being cast as Electro just sent those into overdrive, especially as the actor shared some fan-art of the three big screen Spider-Men facing down his villain. 

That was swiftly deleted from Instagram, but so-called scoopers soon started sharing some bold claims. 

Among them was the return of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 star Dane DeHaan as the Green Goblin. That's not something anyone wants to see, so the actor debunking those reports was a welcome relief.

Sure, it's not like he was going to say, "Yeah, I'm coming back, baby!" but his comments about Spider-Man 3 left us with no doubt he won't return in the threequel.
 

5. It's A Seriously "Ambitous" Superhero Film

Loki341333312

Does this confirm a Multiverse epic this December? 

We're not willing to go that far, but Tom Holland's recent Spider-Man 3 comments still left us with plenty to chew on. Despite recent claims that he knows nothing about the film, he has read the screenplay, and calls it "the most ambitious standalone superhero movie ever made."

That's a bold claim to make, and one which signals a much grander adventure than Homecoming and Far From Home.

This could mean any number of things, but Marvel Studios has big plans for the wall-crawler, and if this is his final solo outing in the MCU, then he's clearly going out in style.
 

4. Alfred Molina's Doctor Octopus Return

Loki34133331

It had been rumored, but then confirmed by the Hollywood trades, that Spider-Man 2 star Alfred Molina is set to reprise the role of Doctor Octopus. 

He might be 67, but the actor still looks the part, and Doc Ock has never been portrayed as a young man. 

Again, we can't comment on whether he's from another world or the MCU's version of Otto Octavius, but either option is likely. If we had to choose, it would be the latter, but revisiting the version of this villain from that 2004 film could be fun (even though he's dead and that doesn't really make sense). 

Either way, this is exciting, and we can't wait to learn more.
 

3. A Familiar Costume

Loki3413333

Peter Parker has the Iron Spider costume tucked away in his closet, but based on everything we've seen from Spider-Man 3, he'll be wearing his Spider-Man: Far From Home costume for a good chunk of this adventure. 

We can't discount the possibility VFX will be used to paint over that, and seeing as Peter has worn multiple costumes in each of his MCU films, we'd bet on him getting another. 

The red and black suit didn't get much screentime in 2019, so seeing more of it in action should be fun. 

It is, after all, a classic look for Spidey, and so we're looking forward to see it on screen again this December.
 

2. A Handful Of Set Photos

Loki341333312

Only a few photos from the set of Spider-Man 3 have been shared online, and while we could easily speculate about what those tell us about the film, we're going to stick to the facts. 

At some point, Peter Parker will track MJ down to what appears to be a cake store she's working in. A video showed him looking nervous before stepping inside, so take that as you will.

Other photos have confirmed that Tom Holland's younger brother, Henry, will have a role in the film as a bike thief, while a stunt video showed Spidey leaping after MJ after she falls from a great height. That's about it, but confirms at least a handful of moments we'll see on film. 

Unfortunately, none of the new casting additions have been sighted!
 

1. Tobey Maguire And Andrew Garfield Won't Be In The Film

Loki3413333121

Hey, don't have a go at us...

Asked about the Tobey Maguire/Andrew Garfield rumors, Tom Holland himself has said, "No, no, they will not be appearing in this film. Unless they have hidden the most massive piece of information from me, which I think is too big of a secret for them to keep from me. But as of yet, no. It’ll be a continuation of the Spider-Man movies that we’ve been making."

Reliable sources may have reported on the duo's return as their respective versions of Spider-Man, but now Spider-Man 3's lead star is saying it won't happen. It's a definitive statement too, and there's really not a lot of wiggle room there.

However...we don't believe you, Tom!
