When is Spider-Man: No Way Home release date?

Back in February, 2021, Marvel Studios attempted to ease fans’ impatience by revealing the full title of the feature film.

The announcement was made via a video posted to the film’s Twitter account, featuring the main cast of the movie.

This includes Tom Holland, Zendaya and Jacob Batalon.

So now we know the full title – Spider-Man: No Way Home – when is it actually hitting the movie screens?

The 27th instalment to the MCU will hit UK and US cinemas on December 17, 2021, although it was first set to debut this July.

Filming began back in October 2020, and wrapped up in March 2021.

What do we know so far from the trailer?

The full teaser trailer for Spider-Man :No Way Home was released on August 24, 2021.

It opens with love interest Michelle Jones, played by Zendaya, and Peter Parker discussing the fact that the entire world now knows the true identity of Spider-Man.

The trailer then shows how much Peter Parker’s life has changed since his arch-nemesis Mysterio exposed his identity – he’s even shown being interrogated by law enforcement.

Desperate to undo the damage, Peter takes a trip to visit Dr Strange.

He then begs his former mentor to cast a spell, making the whole world forget that he is Spider-Man.

Peter evidently hasn’t thoughts things through, however – and starts to panic when he realises his close friends and girlfriend will also forget about his real identity.

Dr Strange warns him to “stop tampering with the spell” but his warnings fall on deaf ears – causing the magic to mysteriously malfunction.

“What just happened?” Peter asks.

“We tampered with space and time,” Dr Strange tells the teen. “The multiverse is a concept about which we know frighteningly little. The problem is you trying to live two different lives.”

“The longer you do it the more dangerous it becomes.”

The ending then teases the return of iconic villain Dr Octopus, who hasn’t been seen in the franchise since the early 2000s.

Spider-Man: No Way Home will be released to UK and US cinemas at the end of 2020
