Over the weekend Jeff Sneider of Collider spoke on The Sneider Cut podcast to talk about the long-rumored villains of Spider-Man: No Way Home. He confirmed the film will feature a “multiverse” Sinister Six including previously announced Electro (played by Jamie Foxx) and Doc Ock (played by Alfred Molina). He went onto reveal that William Dafoe (somehow) will return as Green Goblin. He is expected to be the one that brings all the villains together. The subtitle No Way Home is in reference to the villains (and by extension multiple Peter Parker’s) unable to return to their own universe.
“I heard Sandman, Rhino, and Lizard. Those are the other three that I heard. I don’t know if any of those are confirmed. I don’t know if Rhys Ifans, Paul Giamatti, or Thomas Hayden Church have been seen on set or in anything. I haven’t really been paying attention to the paparazzi photos. That was my understanding.”
Finally, he mentions that Sandman (played by Thomas Haden Church), The Lizard (played by Rhys Ifans), and Rhino (played by Paul Giamatti) will also appear. However, he informed his listeners he wasn’t sure if the same actors would return from the previous Spider-Man films. The Illuminerdi revealed last year that Dafoe and Church had entered talks to return for the film. It’s unknown if Vulture (played by Michael Keaton) from Spider-Man: Homecoming will also appear in this film. Lastly, our friend Daniel Ritchman revealed on his Patreon that at the very least Lizard will indeed be featured in the film.
Tom Holland, Andrew Garfield, and Tobey Maguire are all expected to return as different Peter Parker’s. Zendaya and Kristin Dunst will return as MJ. With Charlie Cox rumored to appear as Matt Murdock and finally Benedict Cumberbatch returning as Doctor Strange. Jon Watts returned to helm the project.
