Now, it seems it was revealed that MCU fans are not the only ones who are not sure what is going to happen, but the actual director, Jon Watts, was the same while filming.

This December, fans are chomping at the bit to find out what is going to happen in Spider-Man: No Way Home, following the success of Spider-Man: Far from Home (2019) and Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017). The film will debut on December 17 worldwide; however, U.K. audiences will get an early preview with a December 15 debut date.

Thanks to the most recent trailer, we can see that Alfred Molina’s Doc Ock, Willem Dafoe’s Green Goblin, Jamie Foxx’s Electro, plus Thomas Haden Church’s Sandman character, and Rhys Ifans’ Lizard from alternate universes will all return. In the film, we will also be able to see Tom Holland (Peter Parker/Spider-Man) and Zendaya (MJ) joined by Benedict Cumberbatch (Doctor Stephen Strange), Jon Favreau (Happy Hogan), Marisa Tomei (Aunt May), Jacob Batalon (Ned Leeds). We did not, however, see Tobey Maguire or Andrew Garfield in the trailer, so their appearance continues to remain a mystery.

In terms of the film’s storyline, we have the official plot, but while the movie was filming, it seems that director Jon Watts was unsure how the film was going to end. Tom Holland spoke out on the way the script was being written, and it seems it was constantly being changed. Culture Crave (@CultureCrave) noted:

Tom Holland says the #SpiderManNoWayHome script was rewritten on almost a daily basis while filming

“You could ask the director, ‘What happens in act three?’ And his response would be ‘I’m still trying to figure it out’”

The official description of Spider-Man: No Way Home reads:

For the first time in the cinematic history of Spider-Man, our friendly neighborhood hero is unmasked and no longer able to separate his normal life from the high-stakes of being a Super Hero. When he asks for help from Doctor Strange the stakes become even more dangerous, forcing him to discover what it truly means to be Spider-Man.
