When Avengers: Endgame was coming out, it was easily the most anticipated MCU film to date; now it seems that Spider-Man: No Way Home is reaching those same levels of anticipation. It's not that hard to believe given all the returning villains and the whispers of some returning web-heads. Add on the probable arrival of Charlie Cox's Daredevil and Marvel has themselves quite an experience to offer fans.
Talk about the project has been raging for months now. Fans nearly overwhelmed themselves trying to summon the movie's first trailer into existence, as Sony seemed to be holding out more than usual.
When the teaser did drop, the viewership records for it triumphed over those held by 2019's Avengers: Endgame.
That's a massive feat, one which shows how the anticipation for No Way Home is astronomical, something Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige has now acknowledged himself.
Spider-Man's Hype Greater Than Endgame?
In an interview with Screen Rant, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige teased how excited everyone seems to be about Tom Holland's next Spider-Man outing.
Feige said that "the anticipation for No Way Home... is as big as anything we've felt before," suggesting that it's equal to or greater than the hype for Avengers: Endgame:
"... certainly the anticipation for No Way Home, I would say, is as big as anything we've ever felt before, which is good timing as the movie's about to come out."
Avengers: Endgame, Round 2
When a film features the return of talents like Alfred Molina's Doc Ock and Willem Dafoe's Green Goblin alongside the rumored returns of Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield, it's bound to be a hit.
Tom Holland's Spider-Man has always been a big draw for audiences. Even the Russo Brothers have pointed out how the actor is basically filling in the big shoes that Robert Downey Jr. left behind.
While the MCU Spider-Man actor has cryptically hinted at how No Way Home might be one of his last outings as Spidey, producers have done the opposite. Talks have already started which infer that the character is set to receive an entire additional trilogy––this time set during his college years.
The real question is, will any of those projects reach the same heights?
