Spider-Man: No Way Home unveils real title and release date… after stars teased some fake names


Spider-Man star Tom Holland and co-stars Zendaya  and Jacob Batalon just revealed the title to their highly anticipated superhero sequel.

The follow-up to 2017’s Spider-Man: Homecoming has officially been dubbed Spider-Man: No Way Home.

But keeping the name a secret was no easy task due to the leading man’s notoriously loose-lips.

Zendaya and Jacob teased Tom in the official announcement on Wednesday, telling the English actor behind Peter Parker he was an expert at spoiling things while they walked past a whiteboard with the title upon it.

‘They gave us a fake name again,’ Holland shrugged while leaving director Jon Watt’s office.

‘Not shocked,’ Batalon, who plays Peter’s best friend Ned, said, telling a still confused Tom why they weren’t being trusted with the information. 

‘It’s pretty obvious,’ he said. ‘You spoil things.’

Zendaya, who plays MJ, agreed, adding: ‘Your thing is to spoil things.’

Frustrated, Tom asked for an example.

‘The last movie title thing?’ former Disney star Zendaya reminded him.

Then the big reveal happened quietly behind them as the camera zoomed in on a whiteboard with Spider-Man: No Way Home in the center. 

Peppered around the name were several titles that made the short-list, like ‘Home Worlds,’ ‘Home Sweet Home,’ ‘Work From Home,’ ‘Home Schooled,’ ‘Home Alone’ and the very cheeky ‘Wecamming.’

Tom shared more details about the movie during an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon Tuesday night.

Holland raised eyebrows and made headlines earlier on Tuesday when he posted a new photo from the Spidey sequel on Instagram, plus what appeared to be the ‘new title’ for the sequel, Spider-Man: Phone Home.  

It prompted his castmates to chimed in with similar titles on social media.

Fallon asked him about the swirling rumors about Jamie Foxx returning as his Electro character from The Amazing Spider-Man 2, and previous Spider-Man stars Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield returning as well, but he shot those rumors down.

‘It would be amazing if they were, because they haven’t told me that yet. And I am Spider-Man, and I’ve read the script from the beginning to the end so it would be a miracle if they could have kept that from me,’ Holland said.

Reputation: The 24-year-old actor has gained a reputation over the past few years for leaking plot details to Marvel films, but he's seemed to get better with practice

Fallon did add that the Marvel bosses like Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige have ‘kept things’ from him, which Holland said was ‘really frustrating.’

‘I’m a trustworthy member of the Avengers and I haven’t really spoiled anything… well there’s a few things, but no big things,’ Holland admitted.

While he didn’t reveal the title, he did confirm that his younger brother Harry Holland will have a part in Spider-Man 3.

‘Yes, in Cherry, he has a small cameo and he plays a character called the shaky kid, and he’s a drug dealer so we kind of have this idea that in every film I would be in that Harry would reprise his role as the shaky kid,’ Holland said.

Holland added that in his brother’s brief Spider-Man role he gets ‘flipped upside-down’ after Spider-Man ‘webs him.’ 

‘Then he’s swinging back and forth while I’m having an argument with someone, and he’s kind of swinging through the frame and I’ve obviously done that for years, being upside-down is second nature to me now, so I know how difficult it can be so the beginning of the day, I was, like, “Making the takes extra, extra long. Just to see how long it would take before he blacked out,”‘ Holland said with a laugh.

Holland joked that he would pretend to forget his lines to prolong his brother hanging upside down, but he added by the end of the day, ‘he can hardly speak anymore.’  

‘It’s a funny scene, though, and it was really fun for me to get to share that moment with him. I’m sure my mom and dad will be really proud,’ Holland joked.

Holland added that he’s been filming the Spider-Man sequel in the same place where he originally auditioned to play Peter Parker in 2016’s Captain America: Civil War.

‘Yeah, it’s an interesting feeling because I walk on stage, and I have that moment of panic, of like, I haven’t got my lines I’m going to ruin the audition, I’m not going to get the part. Then I sort of look back at my trailer, which is now way bigger than it used to be. And I go, “Oh, I’m okay, I’m on the third one, I’m fine,”‘ he joked.

Holland also revealed in another interview with Yahoo! that he has been working on one fight scene for over a month, and it’s quite the spectacle.

‘I saw an edit three or four days ago of a fight scene that we’ve been shooting for about a month. And it is easily the most impressive fight scene I’ve ever seen in a superhero movie,’ Holland said.

‘I was blown away by it. From the work that the stunt boys have done, to the work that some of the actors and myself have done on set, it’s just been incredible, and I’m really, really excited for people to see it,’ he continued.
