Rumors about the latest Spider-Man movie, Spider-Man: No Way Home, have been swirling for months now. However, the release of the first poster for the movie seems to have strengthened one particular rumor.

What’s Happening:

  • Yesterday on Twitter, Marvel Entertainment revealed the first poster for Spider-Man: No Way Home, which is in theaters on December 17.

  • Following the confirmation that Alfred Molina would reprise his role as Doctor Octopus from 2004’s Spider-Man 2 with Tobey McGuire, the rumor has been that other villains of the past would return through the Multiverse to battle with not only Tom Holland’s Spider-Man, but also Tobey McGuire and Andrew Garfield.

  • If you look closely in the back of this poster, you can see the Green Goblin. Could this be Willem Dafoe’s version of the character, also from Spider-Man 2? And could the lightning symbolize Jamie Foxx’s Electro from The Amazing Spider-Man 2?
  • Nothing has been confirmed yet, but it’s fun to theorize!
