It seems as though Spider-Man 3’s title, Spider-Man: No Way Home, actually refers to the film’s villains and not Tom Holland’s Peter Parker.
This is such an interesting theory and one which I think is bang on the money.
This is why I wanted to discuss it here and explain how I believe this to be the case.
During the podcast episode, Sneider said that “six Spider-Man villains from the past [films] wind up in Peter Parker’s universe”.
He then explained that “they are the ones who have no way of getting home,” which kind of explains the third Spider-Man movie’s title.
Spider-Man: No Way Home’s title is in reference to the film’s villains
Here’s what Jeff Sneider had to say on the matter in full:
It doesn’t really make sense to introduce new villains necessarily in this movie, but six Spider-Man villains from the past winding up in Peter Parker’s universe or whatever. They are the ones who have no way of getting home. So yeah, we will see. I hope I didn’t let the cat out of the bag. Spoiler alert. I take it all with a grain of salt, but that was the word on street at one point.
So, this means that the likes of Alfred Molina’s Doc Ock, Jamie Foxx’s Electro, Willem Dafoe’s Green Goblin and so on will be in the movie via the Multiverse and will not be able to get back to their respective Earths.
They are the ones for whom there is no way home – not Peter Parker, who will already be home.
Parker will be having to protect his home from these villains.
Then Doctor Strange will join in the fight to help Peter get the villains back to wherever it was they came from in the first place.
