Spider-Man: No Way Home is set to be an insanely jam-packed film, one which brings back several significant villains from past installments in the webhead's franchise, including faces such as Alfred Molina's Doc Ock and Jamie Foxx's Electro. When December 17 finally rolls around, Tom Holland's Peter Parker is going to have far more to contend with than just managing his identity crisis.
Joining Ock and Electro are Willem Dafoe's Green Goblin, Sandman, and the Lizard. With as many villains as there are who are returning to torment Spidey, there are still a handful who don't seem to be appearing.
For one, neither Michael Keaton's Vulture nor Jake Gyllenhaal's Mysterio seems to be making a comeback––and there aren't many whispers about any new MCU antagonists in the works. There are also past faces such as Topher Grace's Eddie Brock and or Paul Giamatti's Rhino, who don't seem to have made the cut.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2's Dane DeHaan's Harry Osborn also doesn't look to be showing up, with Dafoe's twisted Goblin taking the spotlight for himself. While he probably isn't in the film, DeHaan took to Instagram to support his former co-star and vendetta against Spider-Man.
Dane DeHann Speaks up for Electro
Spider-Man: No Way Home star Jamie Foxx posted a teaser on Instagram for the upcoming film.
The actor declared that he has "unfinished business to take care of" with the wall-crawler:
"Itsy-bitsy spider went up the water spout... Down Came an ELECTRO!... On December 17th were have unfinished business to take care of... #chasingspiders #teamelectro #whoyouwit?"
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 star Dane DeHaan, who played Harry Osborn aka the series' Green Goblin, took to Instagram to show his support of his electrified friend, answering: "Wit you, duh."
Is DeHaan's Goblin Set To Join No Way Home?
While No Way Home already has plenty of villains in the spotlight, it's hard not to wonder how many may show up in small cameos. DeHaan's Goblin is a perfect example of someone who can show up, even if for just a moment.
The scene in the second trailer where Strange warns Peter that he can't hold "them" back could allude to more villains leaking through the cracks. That certainly sounds like a fantastic place for the writers to have invited the likes of DeHaan's Harry Osborn or Giamatti's Rhino to the party. After all, if Tom Hardy's Venom can make it through, who knows if anyone else slipped into the MCU-Prime.
If the rumors about Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire's return are true, then Jamie Foxx's Electro is going to need all the help he can get. Lucky him that he still has friends in high places to cheer him on; gotta get that electricity pumping somehow.
Spider-Man: No Way Home hits theaters worldwide on December 17, 2021.
