Fans had hoped that Marvel would honour Tom Holland’s birthday by releasing a trailer for the upcoming MCU Spider-Man sequel, Spider-Man: No Way Home (2021), but this did not happen.
For weeks, Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios have teased the release of new scenes from Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, the third instalment of the Marvel Cinematic Universe Spider-Man franchise. Fans flocked to social media in droves in the absence of a Spider-Man 3 teaser, propelling both actor Tom Holland and Spider-Man: No Way Home into trending status.
Spider-Man: No Way Home is the only Marvel Cinematic Universe picture scheduled for release in 2021 that has yet to be teased. The Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures film will not be released in theatres until December 17th, 2021. But that hasn’t prevented eager fans from expecting to see Tom Holland’s Peter Parker from the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the debut No Way Home clip.
The actor Tom Holland turns 25 on June 1, and many fans assumed Marvel would release the No Way Home teaser on that day. Marvel pulled off a similar stunt recently, releasing the trailer for Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings (2021) on star Simu Liu’s birthday in April. As the public’s desire for a new Spider-Man trailer grew, so did Internet conjecture.
As of this writing, no trailer for Spider-Man: No Way Home has been released. Fans, on the other hand, flocked to social media to celebrate Tom Holland’s birthday and poke fun at Marvel and Spider-Man fandom.
American doritos, a #SpiderManNoWayHome Twitter user, got inventive and formed a little prayer circle within his 280 characters in the hopes of divine intervention and a Spider-Man 3 teaser. He wrote on Twitter,
“prayer circle: Spider-Man No Home trailer on Tom Holland’s birthday please” #SpiderManNoWayHome”
The Tiger from NY used an iconic shot of a very angry Willem Dafoe as Norman Osborn in Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man (2002) in gif format to share his feelings, Tweeting,
Me waking up and seeing Sony didn’t release the #SpiderManNoWayHome trailer”
S commented that all the Marvel fans hoping for a new trailer on Tom Hollands birthday were looking like clowns following the Marvel and Sony no show, sharing an image of a famous Spidey meme with accompanying caption,
“Everyone that thought the NWH trailer was gonna drop today #SpiderManNoWayHome”
The Cinematic Universe explains why they believe the No Way Home trailer will come in July, saying,
“Honestly releasing the #SpiderManNoWayHome trailer in July makes so much more sense. Since #Sony did release the #VenomLetThereBeCarnage trailer 6 months prior to its October release. Which makes July a much more reasonable month!”
Happy birthday, Tom Holland!
NaviDarks gave Tom Holland a happy birthday shoutout by declaring where Holland’s Peter Parker ranks on his list, Tweeting,
“Happy birthday to my favorite Spider-Man <3 @tomholland1996”
