Spider-Man 3 stars Tom Holland and Jacob Batalon trolled fans by revealing several "official" titles for the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) film.
Both stars posted the title cards on Instagram. Holland's version is called Spider-Man: Phone Home, while Batalon's is titled Spider-Man: Home Wrecker. The two also shared the first stills from the film, showcasing Holland's Peter Parker, Batalon's Ned Leeds and Zendaya's MJ exploring what appears to be an abandoned house / basement.
The actors kept the fun going in the comments section of Batalon's post, with Holland writing, "Wait what?!?!?!?" in apparent confusion. Tony Revolori — who plays Eugene "Flash" Thompson — also got in on the action, posting, "Oh no!"
Details about Spider-Man 3 have slowly been coming to light as the film approaches its Dec. 17 release date. Various casting announcements indicate that the film will explore the Marvel multiverse. Jamie Foxx will reprise his role as Electro from The Amazing Spider-Man 2, while Alfred Molina returns as Doctor Octopus from Sam Raimi's Spider-Man 2. There are also reports that Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield will return as their respective Spider-Men from their film franchises, although those reports have not been confirmed. Finally, Benedict Cumberbatch, who will star in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, will appear as Doctor Strange, taking on the mentor role that was held by Tony Stark / Iron Man in Spider-Man: Homecoming and Nick Fury in Spider-Man: Far From Home.
Spider-Man will also be dealing with issues in his universe. When viewers last left him, his secret identity was revealed to the world, and he was framed for the death of Quentin Beck / Mysterio. This puts Spidey's hometown of NYC into a frenzy, with people taking sides between Mysterio and Spider-Man. It also means Peter is in need of a lawyer, a role that will reportedly be filled by Charlie Cox's Matt Murdock / Daredevil from the popular Netflix series.
Set photos also suggest that the film will take place during the holiday season, matching the movie's December release date.
Directed by Jon Watts, the currently untitled sequel to Spider-Man: Far From Home stars Tom Holland, Zendaya, Jacob Batalon, Jamie Foxx, Alfred Molina and Benedict Cumberbatch. The film arrives in theaters Dec. 17.
