Spider-Man: No Way Home Screening Sees Theater Erupting In Cheers
By Christy Mathew
SPOILERS AHEAD FOR SPIDER-MAN: NO WAY HOME. The showing of Spider-Man: No Way Home is greeted with applause. After months of anticipation; the highly anticipated Marvel Studios and Sony blockbuster has arrived. Fans have already rushed to theatres in droves, with much more expected this weekend. However, based on their reactions to the film during one screening; it appears that fans truly appreciated the blockbuster.
Peter Parker (Tom Holland) is grappling with the implications of his superhero secret identity being revealed in Spider-Man: Far From Home, which serves as the narrative leaping point for Spider-Man: No Way Home.
At the same time, it ties into the MCU’s developing multiverse, thanks to Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) mistakenly exposing Earth to other interdimensional villains including Doc Ock (Alfred Molina), Green Goblin (William Dafoe), and Electro (Jamie Foxx).
Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire, as well as Charlie Cox’s Matt Murdock, appear in the film as their respective Spider-Mans, confirming speculations of their involvement.
Spider-Man: No Way Home received mainly positive reviews from reviewers, and it appears that fans agree – at least according to a new video from TikTok user wondersofmagic (via Spider-Man: No Way Home News on Twitter). While watching the movie, the clip shows a theatre erupting in cheers. While the reaction does not tell which part of the film they were seeing, it is clear that the audience is enjoying the movie.
The marketing campaign for Spider-Man: No Way Home was modest, with Sony and Marvel Studios deciding to save some of the major surprises for the film. There was basically a news blackout months after the movie’s title was revealed, with no updates from the companies. The first trailer for the film was released in late August 2021, followed by a second trailer a few months later.
During the period when there was no official information about the picture; fans clung to rumours about it, which mostly suggested that Garfield and Maguire would appear. Despite several leaks supporting these assertions, Marvel Studios and Sony opted to keep the disclosure until the film’s premiere; making the appearance of the aforementioned stars even more spectacular. While there are multiple highlights in Spider-Man: No Way Home; the reaction shown above may have occurred during their MCU visit.
