‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ is only a month away from its premiere, and last week we got to see the first official poster for the film taped to a Melbourne bus. The new poster, very similar to the one from Australia, confirms one of the rumors about which enemies of Peter Parker will appear in his new adventure: the Green Goblin. At the top of the poster, on the right, we can see him behind Tom Holland, who appears fighting Doctor Octopus. Several Twitter users have echoed the discovery

Precisely, the only villain in the film that had been officially confirmed is Octopus, played by Alfred Molina, repeating his role from ‘Spider-Man 2’. As for the other members of the Sinister Six, there were only conjectures that pointed to Jamie Foxx as Electro, the Sandman, Lizard and, finally, the Green Goblin, by some bombs that appear in the trailer. However, Jon Watts, the director, only said: “I can confirm that they are rumors”. In addition, a few months ago a journalist also hinted at it on her social networks, causing the theory to charge out. This was in addition to the visit of Willem Dafoe (Norman Osborn in ‘Spider-Man’, in 2002) to the filming set.
Among the stars that we do know will reappear are Zendaya as Mary Jane, Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange, Marisa Tomei as May Paker, and Jon Favreau as Happy Hogan. It will hit theaters on December 17, at which time we will solve all our doubts.
In addition to the rumors about the possible villains Spidey will face, fans have been busy thinking about possible theories about what we will see on the big screen. This is the case of Andrew Garfield and an image in which he appears dressed in the Spider-Man suit, which he had previously worn. Although the actor has flatly denied it, he is still in the spotlight. Another example is Charlie Cox, ‘Daredevil’ in the Netflix series, due to a scene in the trailer in which Holland appears accompanied by a man at the police station, but we cannot see his face.
Among the other possible returns, it has also been considered Tobey Maguire, for the similarity between the suit worn by Peter Parker in this new installment and the one he wore in ‘Spider-Man 3’. In this film, Topher Grace also appeared as Venom, although he responded quite ironically when asked about it, so it is not likely that he was counted on this time.
