NO WAY HOME Star Zendaya unsure of her MCU future beyond the Marvel Threequel
Zendaya will return as GM in Spider-Man: No Path Home, but is a Spider-Man 4 on the Space Jam: a new legacy star radar? In a recent interview with E! Online, the actress said her time with the Sony Pictures / Marvel Studios franchise had been a “special” one, adding that he was “quite special to have grown up” alongside Tom Holland and Jacob Batalon.
“We were all absorbing and taking the time to just enjoy the moment, to be together and to be so grateful for the experience,” Zendaya said about the next trio.
She will describe later Spider-Man: No Path Home as “So funny” admit it was also “a little bittersweet” because “We don’t know if we’re going to do another one. Is it going to be three and it’s over? Like, normally you make three movies and that’s about it.”
No one seems to know if Marvel Studios will be part of a fourth Spider Man movie, although Tom Holland’s Wall Robot is expected to stick around long enough for another MCU appearance.
As for the rest of the cast, like Zendaya, we just don’t know. She recognized that by saying, “There have been so many different Spideys before us” and “Make everyone proud” is a priority.
Spider-Man: No Path Home hits theaters on December 17, 2021.

from the first wave of Spider-Man: No Path Home merchandise!
8. Sanctum’s Workshop and Wong’s New Look
We’re confident Spidey won’t be riding a bike through Sanctum’s “workshop”, but there are still some plot details to glean from this LEGO set.
This green creature looks at least a bit like Shuma Gorath, a villain who is expected to appear in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness (Look closely at the sticker on what the creature is supposed to be). This movie leading directly to that one makes sense, and the two stories might even overlap to some extent.
Wong’s new look is also remarkable; dressed in winter clothes – probably due to No way homeIt’s Christmas decor – he has hair now, and we’re guessing he just decided to grow it out … and why wouldn’t he?
Remember, the first footage in the movie showed Peter, Ned, and MJ in some sort of basement, so maybe this set is an interpretation of that?
7. Some Strange Upgrades
Peter Parker wears an “integrated suit” in Spider-Man: No Path Home, and you don’t need to have a Tony Stark level intellect to figure out that this is a combination of the Upgraded and Iron Spider suits.
However, that is not what interests us the most at the moment. It looks like Doctor Strange is planning to give the web-slinger some new abilities, and we can’t help but wonder what that means to him. With glowing symbols on his chest and wrist, it looks like Spidey will be able to unleash new powers in his battle against the interdimensional Sinister Six rumors.
It’s possible that this also helps Spider-Man travel through the multiverse, perhaps to recruit some of his fellow Spider-Men (played by Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield, obviously).
Something tells us that there is more to come with this iteration of the webbed wonder.
6. Nick Fury, Mysterio and the Vulture
While it may be an effort to protect the spoilers of the story, Spider-Man: No Path Home have LEGO sets “inspired” from previous movies – Back home and Far from home in this case – is still strange.
It wasn’t even the case for Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame, and the decision to put Spidey’s black and gold suit in this vulture ensemble is downright confusing. It goes without saying that we don’t anticipate seeing this drone or a car chase, but when it comes to characters like Adrian Toomes, Mysterio and Vulture in No way home… that wouldn’t surprise us.
Quentin Beck is pulling the strings from the shadows makes perfect sense, while Vulture definitely seems to play a part in whatever this multiverse is set to be if the Morbius trailer is an indication.
We will see, but it is to be watched, for sure!
5. Doctor Strange’s New Look
We mentioned Wong’s new look, but what about Doctor Strange? It’s certainly possible that this is a Variant version of Sorcerer Supreme Peter Parker encounters on another Earth.
One possibility is that Spidey meets a different version of Stephen who is just an ordinary guy and manages to get him the tools he needs to be the Supreme Wizard (the Eye of Agamotto and the Levitating Cloak, not this shovel). However, there is another much more likely outcome.
Based on what Wong is wearing, and No way home having a Christmas decor is probably just a joke; maybe there is no heat in the Sanctum or Stephen just needs to clear some snow?
However, we are always left to wonder: How? ‘Or’ What Has Agamotto’s Eye come back ?!
4. The return of J. Jonah Jameson
JK Simmons has played coy when it comes to his future in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but it’s clear now that he’ll be a part of Spider-Man: No Path Home.
Whether it’s barely more than the host of TheDailyBugle.net (who probably calls for the head of Peter Parker) or as someone who takes a slightly more active role in the proceedings, it’s going to be a lot of fun and give Simmons a chance to potentially play more than one version of Jonah … assuming we visit Spidey’s other house!
He’s the Jonah of the MCU, however, and for many fans he’s long overdue for him to get his own action figure.
We just hope there’s at least one scene with the wall-crawler giving Jameson what he deserves, weaving his mouth out and ultimately shutting him down.
3. Black and gold
It’s an intriguing costume, and one that does not yet have an official name. Some fans think this could be what’s hiding under Spidey’s usual costume, but we have a feeling it’s a bit more advanced than that.
These red “gauntlets” are interesting, and one can’t help but think of the Anti-Ock suit in the Spider Man video game. With Alfred Molina returning to the role of Doctor Octopus, that makes perfect sense, although we’d be willing to bet the web-slinger would use him to jump into action against the interdimensional set Sinister Six.
It’s definitely a different look for Peter, and while it might not be the black suit fans were hoping to see, we’d be willing to bet those factors into the final battle one way or another.
Does that mean the other Spider-Men will have a new look as well?
2. Iron Spider Gadgets
The upgraded costume (or the advanced costume as some fans call it) was a badass, but these Iron Spider upgrades will make Peter even more formidable for this apparent journey through the multiverse.
Those four extra arms are making a comeback, although we’d be willing to have Doc Ock make a quick job of them when they come face to face; Iron Spider’s suit could also be vulnerable to Electro’s powers, which leaves us wondering if this black and gold suit could be isolated against his attacks.
Marvel Studios had to know these toys would get us all talking, and minor details like these that seem like a big deal now could turn out to be relatively minor in the grand scheme of things. No way home.
Obviously a lot is being held back, however, and that brings us to our final point …
1. Where are the bad guys?
It’s pretty common for revealed merchandise like this to at least offer a glimpse of a movie’s main villain, but Marvel clearly didn’t want us to get a first glimpse of Doc Ock and Electro in the form of a Funko Pop. . !
Willem Dafoe’s Green Goblin remains the rumored villain No way home, and it is still too early to say whether it will be featured in marketing materials or recorded as a surprise. The same could be said for these other villains, however, and there are ways the first trailer can get us excited about this movie without showing these villains or even three Spider-Men.
It will disappoint some fans, but Marvel and Sony still have a few months to create the hype.
This first wave of toys is a great start, however, and a trailer could be with us as early as next week!
