Spider-Man: No Way Home - the biggest film of the Winter

So 'Spider-Man: No way Home' has been released to the public's and critic's applause. When the first trailer dropped for 'No Way Home' everyone got a glimpse at what would surely be the biggest film of the Winter. With so much speculation surrounding the film, many were able to uncover some facts about the web slingers' next adventure, looking at the clues hidden within the trailer and the outstanding cast who has joined the production. Many of these have turned out to be true and now there are many reasons we think you should go and watch this new Marvel instalment - on the big screen.

Reason one: Tom Holland

Tom Holland returns as everyone's favourite teenage superhero. Yet, with the inclusion of Dr Strange, one main reason to watch the film is the possible multiverse in which our adolescent arachnid meets villains from another dimension - or even himself?

Reason two: A role with different takes

Tobey Maguire played the hero in the 2002 film 'Spider-man' and returned to play him in two more films, facing enemies such as The Green Goblin, Dr Octopus, the Sandman and Venom. Andrew Garfield played him in the 'Amazing Spider-man' series, bringing a cooler and much less awkward Peter Parker facing villains such as The Lizard, Electro and the return of the Green Goblin. Another reason to watch the current film - do they both appear in this new Spider-Man film alongside Tom Holland?

Reason three: Benedict Cumberbatch

Benedict Cumberbatch stars as Dr Strange, hoping to right the wrongs and the damage done in the previous film 'Far From Home'. This will be the fifth time the actor is returning to the role of Steven Strange, not including the much-anticipated new film to be coming to us in 2022: 'Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness'. Who doesn't love Benedict Cumberbatch?

Reason four: Making things worse?

As we all know, things don't often turn out as planned for Peter Parker. Spidey went to Doctor Strange to ask for help but, is it possible the wizard actually makes things worse for the school kid, whilst trying to make it better for the common good?

Reason five: The Green Goblin is back

For those who are well acquainted with the older films, there was a real hint in this trailer that the Green Goblin would be returning. A bomb, belonging to the Green Goblin from the first (2002) Tobey Maguire film, makes an appearance in the trailer and, without spoiling too much for those who have not yet seen the film, well, he's back.

Reason six: Willem Defoe

Willem Defoe has reprised his Green Goblin from the 2002 film. He's a wonderful veteran addition to a newer film, with a much younger cast.

Reason seven: Doc Oc back for more

In the trailer we could clearly see Dr Oc who appeared in the 2004 film Spiderman 2. This may come as no surprise but it is, indeed, true. It is only natural, therefore, that Alfred Molina is back to reprise the role.

Reason eight: Alfred Molina

Alfred Molina, who returns as Doc Oc, has been busy in the series 'Law and Order'. He's also been performing on stage since sealing his own fate in the 2004 film alongside Tobey Maguire.

Reason nine: Electro

In a brief 'blink and you'll miss it moment' within the trailer, Tom Holland's Spider-Man is shown battling bolts of lightning. For those Spider-Man fans who have not yet seen the film, the source of this lightning has turned out to be none other than Jamie Foxx's Electro.

Reason ten: Jamie Foxx to reprise his role

So, among the many talents joining this film, Jamie Fox returns. Electro was first seen in the Amazing Spiderman series but Spiderman and Gwen Stacey previously defeated him by overloading his system. How will they defeat him this time?

Reason eleven: 'How to you tell somebody you are Spider-Man?'

“For the record, I never wanted to lie to you,” Holland tells costar Zendaya in the trailer. “But how do you tell somebody you are Spider-Man?” To watch their relationship unfurl in this new instalment is definitely chemistry. When Spider-Man is faced with a spell that will make everyone forget his true identity, it is MJ whom he thinks of and how he doesn't want her to forget about all those special moments they shared.

Reason twelve: High action and lots of CGI

The two have worked a lot on their relationship, creating a believable love story as chaos unfurls. More MCU action and CGI is delivered at its finest, as the film provides the Marvel Studios' high-paced action sequences we have come to love. And the fight between Spiderman and Doctor Strange? Unbeatable.

Reason thirteen: Zendaya

Zendaya has been busy since she last played the role of MJ in 'Spider-Man: Far From Home'. Not only has she played a part in the huge hit, 'Space Jam - A New Legacy', providing the voice of Lola Bunny, but she has also been on the successful HBO series 'Euphoria'. Her return as MJ has been greatly welcomed by Spider-Man fans and girls around the world who see Zendaya as an icon for young women everywhere.

Reason fourteen: Marisa Tomei as Aunt May

This is another loved lady to join the cast. With an Academy Award, nominations for a BAFTA Award, two Golden Globe Awards, and three Screen Actors Guild Awards to her name, Marisa Tomei returns as the not-so-old but just as lovable Aunt May. Other Aunt Mays from previous Spider-Man films have included Sally Field and Rosemary Harris. But there is a dark twist to this character's plot...

Reason fifteen: John Favreau as Spider-Man's old pal, Happy

The much-loved John Favreau is back as Happy after his success in managing, writing and also directing the Disney and Star Wars hit, The Mandalorian.

Reason sixteen: Comedic timing

David Fear from The Rolling Stone wrote, "But when the movie decides to detour into cracked, buddy-comedy territory — that’s when the fun begins. Humor has always been a part of the Spider-Man movies; even the dourest Spidey story has jokes about the notion of a kid shooting sticky web out of his wrists. Yet there’s a specifically anarchic spirit here that enlivens things with an Electro-level jolt compared to some of No Way Home's companion pieces, one which plays off nostalgia and the poignancy’s of Parker’s continual dilemma..."

Reason seventeen: the uncertainty

"Watts’ ending is bold. You’ll have never left a Marvel film with so much uncertainty as to what comes next," said Johnny Oleksinski from the New York Post.

So, when and how can we watch it?

'Spider-Man: No Way Home' was originally set for release in July 2021. But then, for obvious reasons regarding the world's pandemic, it was pushed back to November. Finally, it was delayed a third time, and the MCU phase 4 film finally came to cinemas on 15th December 2021. It will obviously, subsequently be released at some point on Disney Plus.
