Get ready to swing through the streets of New York once again with the latest instalment in both the Spider-Man franchise and the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
No Way Home sees the return of Tom Holland as Peter Parker/Spider-Man, who has to contend with the world finally knowing his secret identity, as well as a whole rogue gallery of villains invading his world from other universes.
It promises big action, and even bigger twists, with Metro.co.uk’s review calling it the most ambitious Spidey adventure yet.
Here is everything you need to know about the web-head’s new adventure, including the release date, cast, runtime and more (no spoilers though, we promise)…
When is No Way Home released?
Good news Spidey-fans: No Way Home is out now in a cinema near you.
The film came out in cinemas across the UK on December 15, two days before it makes its debut in other parts of the world – aren’t we lucky!?
Who is in the cast of Spider-Man: No Way Home?
Many faces are returning to the cast alongside Tom Holland, who has previously played Spider-Man in two solo movies – Homecoming and Far From Home – and three other instalments in the MCU (Civil War, Infinity War and Endgame).
In this instalment, he will be facing a multitude of villains from Spidey’s cinematic past.
Willem Dafoe returns as Norman Osborn/Green Goblin after having played the role in the Tobey Maguire-led trilogy that ran from 2002 to 2007.
Alfred Molina is also back as Doctor Octopus from Tobey’s Spider-Man 2, while Thomas Haden Church reprises his role as Sandman from 2007’s Spider-Man 3.
Those aren’t the only villains making a return, as Rhys Ifans and Jamie Foxx are back as The Lizard and Electro respectively from the Andrew Garfield-starring Amazing Spider-Man movies.
Holland’s Peter Parker won’t be alone in facing this threat from the multiverse, as he will have his girlfriend MJ (played by Zendeya) and Ned (played by Jacob Batalon) to assist him, as well as the sorcerer supreme himself Doctor Strange, once again played by Benedict Cumberbatch.
The biggest question for many fans however is: will Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield be making a return to give Tom Holland’s Spidey a helping hand?
Marvel and the cast have stayed very tight-lipped on their much-rumoured appearance, so you’re just going to have to see the movie to find out.
What age rating is No Way Home?
The film has been rated 12A by the BBFC for moderate violence and threat.
Films classified as 12A generally mean they contain material not suitable for children under the age of 12.
Children under 12 can see the film but they must be accompanied by an adult.
How long is Spider-Man No Way Home?
Make sure you book the comfiest seat in the house, as No Way Home has a runtime of 148 minutes – which is two hours and 28 minutes.
That makes it the fourth-longest MCU entry, behind Endgame, Eternals and Infinity War.
Will this be the last Spider-Man movie?
Tom Holland left fans worried over his future as Spider-Man earlier this year when discussing shooting No Way Home with Zendeya and Batalon.
He told EW: ‘We’ve been making these films for five years now. We’ve had such an amazing relationship, the three of us. We’ve been with each other every step of the way.’
Tom continued: ‘We’ve done every single film, every single press tour. So this one scene, [we didn’t know] if this would be the last time [we were all working together.]’
But at the LA premiere, producer Amy Pascal declared it’s very much her intention to keep making Spidey movies with Holland, as rumours of a new trilogy have begun circulating.
‘As long as he wants to make Spider-Man movies, we will make Spider-Man movies,’ Pascal told Variety from the red carpet.
‘But I’m a producer, and I always think everything is going to work out. If I have my way we will.’
So, time will tell if No Way Home is the last we’ll see of Holland in the blue and red spandex – but the door seems very much open for Holland to continue.
Spider-Man: No Way Home is in UK cinemas now.
