It’s THE hot cinema ticket this festive season, with Spider-Man: No Way Home (2021) crashing most major cinema sites when tickets were dropped this week.
There has been intense speculation the last few months over the plot and cast for Kevin Feige’s upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe movie, with the hype seemingly out of control for the third MCU installment starring Tom Holland.
Now, the press tour has officially begun for the Marvel movie, with stars Tom Holland and Zendaya appearing in an unexpected place for the start of the tour.
Ever since Tom Holland and Zendaya — Peter Parker/Spider-Man and MJ, respectively, in the Marvel Cinematic Universe — were confirmed to be a couple, Marvel fans have enjoyed learning snippets about their romance.
Lately, Holland has been sharing a number of social media posts about his actress girlfriend, including one from the premiere of her new movie Dune (2021).
The official trailer for Jon Watts’ No Way Home broke the internet this month, and seems to be the most anticipated movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe since Avengers: Endgame (2019),
The third installment of Tom Holland’s Spider-Man movie saga, No Way Home looks to be a dramatic and franchise-changing addition to the MCU timeline, and titular star Tom Holland has – as usual – almost spoiled the movie a few times.
With the appearance of characters like Willem Dafoe’s Green Goblin and Alfred Molina’s Doctor Octopus from Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man and Marc Webb’s The Amazing Spider-Man franchises in the trailer, fans believe that Peter Parker actors Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield will be appearing alongside Tom Holland in No Way Home.
Marvel fans have already seen the official trailer, a chaotic ticket release, newly released posters, and numerous interviews from the cast of Spider-Man: No Way Home, and with less than three weeks before the film’s theatrical debut on December 17, the press tour has finally begun.
In a surprise appearance, loved-up pair Tom Holland and Zendaya made an appearance at the Ballon d’Or Festival in France last night.
The MCU stars were seen walking the red carpet and greeting fans prior to the start of the event.
The Ballon d’Or Festival is an awards ceremony honoring the top European football players of the year and seems an odd place to start promoting the Marvel Studios movie. The official Twitter page for No Way Home confirmed the start of the film’s promotion:

In a recent interview with Entertainment Tonight, co-star J.B. Smoove, who plays Mr. Dell in the Spider-Man franchise, revealed that he thinks the romantic stars are the “most adorable” pair:
“I love those two. I love them so much. [They are] the most adorable couple ever in the history of adorableness. I told them to have time for love but have time for laughter. Laughter. Smiles. Stress-free lifestyle, you know. Find out about each other and find some way to keep watering that seed and keep growing and growing.”
“This is not the last movie that we are going to make with Marvel – [this is not] the last Spider-Man movie. We are getting ready to make the next Spider-Man movie with Tom Holland and Marvel. We’re thinking of this as three films, and now we’re going to go onto the next three. This is not the last of our MCU movies.”
Spider-Man: No Way Home will feature Benedict Cumberbatch in his fan-favorite role as Doctor Strange, alongside Zendaya (MJ), Jacob Batalon (Ned Leeds), Marisa Tomei (May Parker), and Jon Favreau (Harold “Happy Hogan), in a Multiversal series of events. The Multiverse was first seen in the MCU in the Disney+ series Loki starring Tom Hiddleston, and most recently in What If…?.
