We already suspect that Spider-Man: No Way Home is going to be a huge film. After all, the sequel will feature the awesome collaboration between Peter Parker and Stephen Strange. In addition to that, the trailer teased a multiverse-altering moment that could change the timeline drastically. So it's no surprise that director Jon Watts says the upcoming movie will be the franchise's own Avengers: Endgame.
Watts has already worked on two Spider-Man movies so there is little doubt that he's had a lot of practice for the third one. Still, No Way Home is expected to have a truly epic scale since it's set to show us more of the multiverse. With that in mind, Watts admits he has big plans for the sequel.
“We’re definitely trying to be ambitious,” Watts told Empire magazine. But how ambitious is the third movie going to be? The filmmaker made an epic reference to the Marvel Cinematic Universe's biggest film to date.
“It’s Spider-Man: Endgame,” Watts said with a laugh.
It might sound like a joke but we're pretty sure that Watts is serious about this. There are certain expectations when it comes to No Way Home and it's not just about what happens to the multiverse. It also has a lot to do with Spider-Man's future.
The cast and crew of Spider-Man 3 have already made it clear that the film is set to be the franchise's final entry. Watts had previously stated that he only aims to work on a trilogy. Additionally, Tom Holland had admitted that he views the movie as the end of the story. However, he also added that Peter Parker may still return in more films.
Spider-Man: No Way Home will also star Zendaya, Benedict Cumberbatch, Jon Favreau, Jacob Batalon, Marisa Tomei, J. B. Smoove, Benedict Wong, Alfred Molina, Jamie Foxx and J.K. Simmons. The film is scheduled for release on December 17, 2021.
