‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ Rumors Point to Green Goblin, Electro Getting Comic Book Accurate Costumes?


Spider-Man: No Way Home will see the return of villains from the previous Sony Spider-Man movies. And now it’s being rumored that some of those villains will get more comic book accurate costumes for their MCU debut, according to blog One Take News.

The third standalone Spider-Man film to star Tom Holland and take place in the MCU will reportedly see the return of previous Spider-Men Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield via the Marvel multiverse, which has been explored in Loki.

In addition to the return of other incarnations of Peter Parker, Spider-Man: No Way Home will feature the return of classic villains Doctor Octopus, Electro, Green Goblin, Mysterio, Rhino and Sandman. Essentially making the cinematic version of the Sinister Six. These villains will be played by their respective actors from each of the previous Sony Spider-Man films.

Doctor Octopus (Spider-Man 2) will once again be played by Alfred Molina, and is said to be “de-aged” using Disney’s de-aging process seen in various Marvel, Star Wars and Pirates of the Caribbean films. Currently it’s being said his appearance is more or less unchanged, which makes sense as he was fairly comic book accurate.


Electro (Amazing Spider-Man 2) played by Jamie Foxx, will not be blue but rather sport a classic yellow and green appearance, much like his comic book incarnation.

Let’s start off with Electro. I’ve heard that he will be wearing a green construction jacket. As Foxx said earlier, Electro won’t be blue. Instead, he will be yellow and so will his powers.

Green Goblin (Spider-Man) will also return played by Willem Dafoe, but it’s being said he’s being redesigned the most to resemble his comic book counterpart and not the Power Rangers villain he was in the first Raimi movie.

Here’s what OTN had to say on it…

Finally, The Green Goblin. I personally confirm earlier reports that Dafoe is 100% in the film so hopefully that helps. I’ve heard that the original suit is going to be changed. I’ve heard that while it will still be armored, a lot of purple will be included in the suit to make it more comic book accurate.

Green Goblin wasn’t originally supposed to look the way he did. The original concept had him sporting an animatronic mask which, honestly, looked much closer to his comic book incarnation.

According to Screen Rant, this Green Goblin mask was scrapped even before Willem Dafoe was cast due to concerns over the character being “too scary” for younger audiences.

Apparently they got over this fear by the time of the third Spider-Man movie, which introduced Venom.

While plot details are vague, Holland’s Spider-Man will traverse the multiverse and run into variant versions of himself via Doctor Strange. This is further confirmed by recently released images of official No Way Home merchandise.

MCU fans are eagerly awaiting the trailer for Spider-Man: No Way Home, which has yet to materialize.

Hopefully these rumors prove to be true, and Spider-Man fans of all generations are in for a cinematic treat!
