Spider-Man: No Way Home Has Elicited a Strong Response from Fans Craving More Info

With the Spider-Man 3 title finally revealed (it’s Spider-Man: No Way Home in case you hadn’t heard) in a short teaser by director Jon Watts- which features Tom Holland, Zendaya and Jacob Batalon- the internet is once again up in arms about one particular element of the trailer that could hold some Easter eggs. We see a whiteboard with various scrapped titles for the third Spider-Man movie. It all seems like a bit of a laugh- with on the nose title suggestions like Stay at Home and Work from Home getting annotations asking the writer to kindly stop. However, fans are doing what they do best and trying to grasp any semblance of information that they can from the whiteboard in case there are any cleverly hidden Easter eggs. Let’s take a look at some of the theories that have cropped up as well as some of the best responses to the title reveal in general.

Miles Morales

So I’m going to start with a theory that feels a little bit like it’s grasping at straws at times but I can’t help but feel intrigued by it. Fans have noticed that the webbing drawn on the white board that holds the confirmed No Way Home title has a rather specific shape to it. It has a very similar shape to that of the country of Puerto Rico when you look at it on a world map.  Of course, this could just be a coincidence but after looking at the way the webbing is drawn, it does look  like it has specific angles that were deliberately drawn this way. Why Puerto Rico though? Well, Miles Morales is Puerto Rican. Morales is a character from the Marvel comic books who takes up the mantle of Spider-Man and has seen a surge of popularity the last few years due to him taking the lead in 2018’s animated Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse film as well as the Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales PlayStation game. Personally, I do think this may be a hint to an introduction of the character. There are teases that the third film will include the Marvel Multiverse and if this is the case, bringing Morales into the picture could be possible. He could be a Spider-Man from another universe but this isn’t the only way he could be introduced. He could also just be a new character in the current MCU who meets Peter Parker and somehow receive similar powers. I just think the shape of the webbing is a little too similar to the shape of Puerto Rico to be coincidental so I do actually agree with this one. Not so sure about the rest of the theory- as described by the Twitter account @spideysnews in the Tweet above- in regards to General Nelson A. Miles. Seems a little bit too far but who knows, it could still be possible.

Hexes

Anyone who has been watching Marvel’s WandaVision Disney Plus series will know the importance of hexes in Marvel at the moment. The Hex is the name used for the alternate reality that Wanda- a.k.a Scarlet Witch- has created due to its hexagonal shape. There are various hexagons drawn onto the whiteboard in the teaser and whilst it is possible that these could represent molecules of some kind, it does seem a little coincidental seeing as The Hex is such a big part of the MCU right now. That being said, Peter Parker and his friends are super science nerds so it could be in reference to that. Again, I’m thinking this one might be an actual Easter egg due to how convenient that hexagonal shape is when considering its significance in WandaVision, which is arguably biggest Marvel property out there at the moment. @IGN’s official Twitter account captured the various hexes perfectly in their Tweet above.

Fake Names and Green Goblin

We are veering from the whiteboard theories as this one also seems like it could be possible. Before the official title was revealed, stars of the Spider-Man films Tom Holland, Zendaya and Jacob Batalon each posted a fake title to mess with us. Whilst the titles were pretty funny- Home Slice, Phone Home and Home-Wrecker (Okay but I really want to see that one) – it wasn’t the titles themselves that caught the attention of eagle eyed fans. Instead, it was the colouring of the Spider-Man text. One is purple, one is green and one is a silvery grey colour. Each colour is associated with that of a well-known Spider-Man villain: Green Goblin. Seems a little ridiculous right? I would have agreed but the colour scheme seems so specific and deliberately chosen. What are the chances of absolutely no one in the marketing team picking up on the fact that these colours are those used by Green Goblin? Green Goblin who just so happens to be one of the most infamous characters in the Spider-Man series? Coincidence? I THINK NOT. You can probably tell that this is an Easter egg that I think could be real. Twitter user @NacaoMarvell perfectly lines up the titles with an image of Green Goblin from the comics. Just look at the picture above and tell me I’m wrong about this. You know you can’t.

Home Depot

Onto some of my favourite fan made pieces to have come from the name reveal. This lovely image comes from @filmserena and I am being completely honest when I say I want this movie. Just Peter Parker going about his shift at a Home Depot and dealing with difficult customers whilst trying to hide his identity. I want it. I need it. Marvel please. Can I just say that the photo-shopping in this is also perfect, especially Mysterio awkwardly floating in the air. Make this happen, Kevin Feige.

S.W.O.R.D and Spider-Man

Back to the legend that is @BossLogic, who has made an absolutely awesome fan-made piece of art that I really wish was canon. In the image, we see a mask-less Spider-Man looking out at Earth from a space station as an ominous red glow forms over the planet. Boss Logic cleverly incorporates the S.WO.R.D logo onto the ground where Peter stands, suggesting that this is the outer space headquarters of the interplanetary organisation that is S.W.O.R.D from the comic books known as The Peak. This seems entirely possible at the moment, as S.W.O.R.D recently made their debut in WandaVision as they attempt to put a stop to Wanda and her Hex alternate reality. It is also thought that Nick Fury could be chilling in The Peak in outer space currently, as we seem him taking an interstellar vacation in some kind of space station at the end of Spider-Man: Far From Home. The red glow encircling the Earth also leads into this theory of S.W.O.R.D attempting to harness Scarlet Witch’s powers and failing epically. In WandaVision, we see that Wanda has the power to expand her hex- although just how much she can control what is going in within it is unknown- so if she continues to use her power it is possible that she could take the Earth entirely. That’s where Doctor Strange could come in, helping her to control her abilities and stopping her from becoming a villain and such. I’m rambling and veering from the point aren’t I? What I was trying to say was, this is a really cool concept from Boss Logic that makes sense with what is happening in the MCU .

Stay At Home

Last but not least, this Tweet from @bwaydarlene is just so true. The film is being advertised as only being in cinemas around Christmas time. If we want to see this movie, we need to be able to safely say that we have done all that we can to contain this pandemic. I know that in my country- the UK- we are on our way out of lockdown but people are taking that as “do what you want now”. I’ve seen a lot more people around since our government revealed our plan to exit lockdown. No masks and no social distancing. I don’t want to sound preachy but I’m going to anyway. If we want to be able to enjoy these epic movies on the big screen again, we need to be willing to do this. So please just stay home and stay safe and come December we will be able to actually go to a theatre to watch this.

Spider-Man: No Way Home is set for a theatrical release this December.
