Every Marvel fan is waiting for Spider-Man: No Way Home (2021) to hit theaters this December, and rumors on the previous Spider-Man stars appearing in the film are ramping up. While Andrew Garfield outright denies any involvement in the Marvel movie, Spider-Man 3 (2007) star Topher Grace flat out jokes that he’s in No Way Home.

Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man trilogy is one of the most revered superhero franchises in history, and Alfred Molina’s Doctor Octopus and Willem Dafoe’s Green Goblin are set to appear in Tom Holland’s Spider-Man: No Way Home.

Many Marvel fans are betting that the multiverse will introduce other Marvel characters to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, including Tom Hardy’s Venom and even the X-Men.

Topher Grace, best known for his portrayal of Eddie Brock/Venom in Spider-Man 3 alongside Tobey Maguire, recently dropped the (comedic) ball about appearing in Spider-Man: No Way Home.

In a recent Reddit AMA, Grace stated:

“Please keep it between us but yes, I am in it.”

“The plot starts with Peter Parker (Tom Holland) bummed that everyone knows his identity and then some crazy s–t happens with Dr. Strange and Dr. Octopus (Alfred Molina) comes into his dimension. Then Electro and the Green Goblin hop out of one of those ‘energy circles’ and they’re like ‘It’s spider stompin’ time.'”

“Then Tom Hardy and I pop out and battle each other and I win (obvi), it’s like not even a fight I just kick his ass immediately. Not to give too much away but there are also some actors from the original ’70s Spiderman show, Aquaman and Batman (Affleck, not Keaton) crossover, and thanks to Disney Han Solo’s ghost from Rise of Skywalker, and that Eve robot from Wall-E. Again, please keep between us.”

Grace tossed out hilarious quips faster than Spider-Man, and his knowledge of comic book and Disney characters is outright impressive.

Topher Grace is obviously joking about the Venom crossover in No Way Home, or Kevin Feige and Marvel would be on red alert! The inclusion of Michael Keaton’s Batman in the Marvel Universe was a dead giveaway (as if we didn’t catch the joke earlier), but absolutely hilarious.

Tom Hardy recently revealed that he “would do anything to make that [crossover] happen.” Hardy’s Venom: Let There Be Carnage (2021) is nearly in theaters and the Sony star is ready for his iconic villain to officially step into Marvel’s New York with Tom Holland, Captain America (Anthony Mackie), and Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch).

In what will be Holland’s last outing with Marvel as Peter Parker/Spider-Man, Kevin Feige and crew are pulling all the stops for the Marvel film. Jaime Foxx’s Electro from Andrew Garfield’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014) will be joining what fans believe are supervillains Lizard (Rhys Ifans), Vulture (Michael Keaton), and Sandman (Thomas Haden Church).

More on Spider-Man: No Way Home

Without the help of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, like Captain America, Black Panther, Iron Man, or even Captain Marvel, Peter turns to Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch). Spider-Man and Doctor Strange accidentally open a rift in the Multiverse when a spell goes wrong in the Sanctum Sanctorum, unleashing a deadly batch of supervillains, like Alfred Molina’s Doctor Octopus and Willem Dafoe’s Green Goblin from previous Spider-Man franchises.

Much like Captain America: Civil War (2016) and Avengers: Infinity War (2018), No Way Home will juggle an ensemble cast of heroes and villains while furthering the Marvel Cinematic Universe like never before.

The Marvel collection is growing with each new superhero film and series on Disney+. Marvel films are expanding after the events of Loki, and Marvel characters are being introduced to variants of each character.

Marvel fans, mark your calendars for Spider-Man: No Way Home’s theatrical debut on December 17, 2021.
