Congratulations, we have been trolled yet again!
Marvel’s spider-team felt no remorse in trolling fans all day, with stars Tom Holland, Jacob Batalon, and Zendaya each uploading title cards revealing different titles for the upcoming MCU Spider-Man movie.
According to Holland’s Instagram post, the third installment of the series will be called “Spider-Man: Phone Home,” oddly giving us the 1984’s E.T. vibe. On the other hand, Batalon’s post has revealed the title to be “Spider-Man: Home Wrecker.” To make things more confusing, Zendaya then shared a third title card, declaring the movie name to be “Spider-Man: Home Slice.”
Obviously, these posts sparked a whirlwind of confusion and memes over the internet, with fans making up some insane theories out of this title-puzzle. At last, Marvel decided to clear up the confusion in a 30-second video clip.
The third movie of Spider-Man has finally got its official title, and it’s not “Phone home” or “home Slice, and definitely not “Home Wrecker.” Phew!
The actual title for the upcoming installment in the superhero franchise is “Spider-Man: No Way Home, actor Tom Holland – with his fellow cast members, Jacob Batalon and Zendaya – featured in a 30 second video to spill the beans on social media on Wednesday.
In the video, Holland comes out of director Jon Watt’s office, whining about how he’s toying with them and fans with fake titles.
“He gave us a fake name again… I just don’t understand why he keeps doing this,” Holland complains.
“You don’t understand? I feel like it’s pretty obvious. You spoil things,” Batalon answers, referring to the actor’s reputation of spoiling the details of the movie ahead of public release.
“I don’t spoil things. Name one thing I have actually spoiled,” Holland strikes back, as Zendaya brutally answers, “The last movie title.”
The camera then pans to a white board featuring brainstorming of potential movie titles, with “Spider-Man: No Way Home” written in the center.
Check out how fans are reacting to the new movie title:
Prior to the reveal, Holland appeared in a virtual interview with Jimmy Fallon on Tuesday to talk about the confusion caused online. Opposite to his reputation, the actor remained tightly-lipped throughout the interview and didn’t give away much of the information. The one thing that the current Spider-Man did reveal, however, was that former Spider-Men, Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield will not have their cameos in the latest movie.
“It would be amazing if they were in the movie, because they haven’t told me that yet and I am Spider-Man and I have read the script from beginning to the end,” Holland said in the Jimmy Fallon show. “It would be a miracle if they could have kept that from me. But at the moment there is no cameo from the two boys.”
Do you believe him? Hell, no! Obviously, considering how the film’s stars were shamelessly sharing fake news about the film just yesterday, it’s fair to assume Holland’s statements about epic cameos of former Spider-men are nothing but another put-up job.
In short, his claims don’t entirely rule out the possibility of former Spider-men cameos in the upcoming installment. So, sit tight and have faith in the MCU; they won’t disappoint!
Spider-Man: No Way Home is slated for a release on 17th December, 2021 in theatres.
