With villains from previous franchises set to return and rumors of past Spider-Man actors possibly reprising their roles, Spider-Man: No Way Home looks like it could be one of the MCU’s biggest films to date. The film is so big that in an interview with Empire, director Jon Watts described it as “Spider-Man: Endgame.”
“We’re definitely trying to be ambitious,” Watts said. “It’s ‘Spider-Man: Endgame.'”
Two new images of the Sony and Marvel Studios produced film were also released. In one of them, Peter Parker (wearing his Iron Spider suit) is running from Alfred Molina’s Doc Ock.
During another interview with Empire, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige talked about how the studio had discussed bringing Molina back for years.
“I remember having discussions with Amy Pascal years ago,” Feige recalls. “Do we want to revisit villains we’ve seen before?’ No, let’s do Vulture, and Mysterio, and characters we haven’t brought to the screen before. But I remember thinking, ‘How would you even do Doc Ock again?’, because Alfred Molina is perfect casting. If you ever brought him back, it would have to be him somehow.”
With under two months until its release, I’m sure we’re not to far out from the second trailer. Spider-Man: No Way Home hits theaters on December 17.
