The name Spider-Man: No Way Home brings a lot of stress, anticipation, hype, and a myriad of emotions in general to many fans out there. It's a movie that has expectations in the stratosphere so high that it's going to be a feat if the film can ever match them.
Putting aside the all-star MCU cast of the film, including Benedict Cumberbatch's Doctor Strange, the film is also set to bring back previous villains such as Alfred Molina's Doc Ock with many more rumored to follow. Not only that, but the chances of the world seeing Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield return to their respective Spider-Man roles are higher than anyone could have ever imagined.
This is, of course, an exaggeration—but the sentiment couldn't be more accurate; fans have been begging to see anything from the film, but Sony and Marvel Studios have been holding off. It's a move that is likely due to the uncertainty caused by the Delta variant running amok.
While everyone waits for something official from the film, why not sink one's teeth into a little theorizing, such as why Tom Holland, Benedict Cumberbatch, Zendaya, and more were all spotted together in L.A.—where Spider-Man: No Way Home is rumored to be undergoing reshoots.
SPIDER-MAN CAST SPOTTED TOGETHER
Thanks to Twitter user @AllNewsTom, pictures have surfaced that show many members of the Spider-Man: No Way Home cast sitting down having dinner in L.A. Those in attendance include Tom Holland, Holland's brother, Zendaya, Benedict Cumberbatch, Jacob Batalon, and Batalon's girlfriend.
Outside any irrelevant gossip, the noteworthy part of it all is how they were spotted not only in Los Angeles but also around the same time at which reshoots for the third Spider-Man film are rumored to be happening.
The photos can be seen in the Tweet below:

HOLLAND, BENEDICT, AND ZENDAYA WALK INTO A BAR
There is always the chance that the group of actors was simply meeting up for a drink and a bite to eat, but with people as big as that, it's not all too likely—after all, they are extremely busy people. What is strange, however, is how unworried they seemed to be about meeting up like they were in such a public environment.
If the group of them are in town for reshoots, then at least a chunk of the additional/corrected footage being filmed will include these characters in some scenes. Hopefully, it means Doctor Strange will be getting even more to do in the threequel. After all, it looks like the Sorcerer Supreme did give Peter Parker some magic webbing, and it's hard to imagine Peter not making a mess with it.
Fingers crossed that, one day, the first trailer for Spider-Man: No Way Home will make its way online, and fans will finally be able to rest easy—even if it's only for a few weeks before they start clamoring for more.
When a film seems to be offering three generations of Spider-Men and their villains alongside Doctor Strange and the multiverse, it's not surprising in the slightest that excitement for the film is as high as it currently is.
Spider-Man: No Way Home hits theaters on December 17, 2021, when fans will finally be able to see if the film can match the impossible expectations placed upon it.
