Marvel's Kevin Feige Opens Up About All The Secrecy Around Spider-Man: No Way Home

We are months away from the release of Spider-Man: No Way Home, and while we know for certain that is the movie’s title, we know next to nothing outside of that. There has only been two still photographs for the movie, but we have no official synopsis, not much of a cast list, and of course, no full trailer. So when we got time to speak with Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige on behalf of the upcoming Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, we had to sneak in a question about Spider-Man’s next chapter, and what seems to be an increased amount of secrecy swirling around this feature.

Only, Kevin Feige doesn’t feel that there is additional secrecy around Spider-Man: No Way Home, at least on Marvel’s side of the equation. While we’ve all come to expect a lack of specifics when it comes to the next MCU movie, Spider-Man: No Way Home appears to be going an extra mile to stay off the radar, especially as Eternals drops a second and final trailer, and it opens in theaters one month before. ONE! Opening up about the buzz that’s swirling around the project, Feige told CinemaBlend:

Honestly, I've seen the fervor online. It has not necessarily occurred to me that it is any more or less secret than any of our other projects. I think all of our projects… we want to preserve surprises. That's all the secrecy is for.

The lack of an official trailer for Spider-Man: No Way Home at this point even had a number of Spider-Man fans taking to social media to speculate that the sequel might just come to theaters on December 17 without having shown any footage. There have been people who have made the argument that No Way Home would be better served skipping a trailer. But as the conversation continued, Feige did confirm to CinemaBlend:

It will be in theaters on December 17, and there will be a trailer before that, you can be assured.

The little bit that we know about Spider-Man: No Way Home is incredibly intriguing. The speculation points to the film being a multiverse movie, with Peter Parker (Tom Holland) potentially encountering Spider-Men played by Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield. These rumors spring from the slip ups in the press from Jamie Foxx and Alfred Molina that they’d be part of Spider-Man: No Way Home. Naturally, they played villains in the Sam Raimi and Marc Webb versions of the hero’s franchise films.

A trailer would go a long, long way to clearing some of these wild rumors up. Kevin Feige says that there are secrets and reveals they want to protect for Spider-Man: No Way Home, which is why it might feel like he’s keeping details close to the Marvel vest. But a trailer is coming, and you just know that the moment it arrives, we’ll have it here on CinemaBlend for you.
