No Way Home Blu-ray Cover Has 3 Villains (But Only 1 Spider-Man)

Warning: Contains SPOILERS for Spider-Man: No Way Home

Spider-Man: No Way Home's Blu-ray steelbook cover features three of the five main villains from the film, but only one Spider-Man (Tom Holland). No Way Home is the third solo Spider-Man movie set within the broader MCU chronology, serving as the final chapter of the trilogy first launched by director Jon Watts with 2017's Spider-Man: Homecoming. As the climactic final act of Watts' three films, No Way Home establishes an entirely new status quo for Holland's Peter Parker.

The recently introduced multiverse plays a significant role within No Way Home's plot, reintroducing fan-favorite villains from previous, non-MCU Spider-Man franchises. In what was perhaps the worst-kept secret in the history of the MCU, the multiverse also presented an opportunity to bring back Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield's respective incarnations of Spider-Man. The film has been out for nearly two weeks now, but it appears that Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios will continue to keep the pair's involvement a secret for future promotional materials – including the film's Blu-ray cover.

A new image of No Way Home's Blu-ray steelbook cover (via Best Buy) shows that the studios will remain tightlipped about the film's plot. The cover only shows Spider-Man in his upgraded suit, surrounded by Green Goblin (Willem Dafoe), Doc Ock (Alfred Molina), and Electro (Jamie Foxx). Check out the full image below:

Despite being one of the more popular solo-hero franchises within the MCU, Holland's take on the character has proven to be somewhat controversial among those who believe the MCU's web-slinger to be a glorified sidekick for more established characters. Fortunately, the events of No Way Home have now forced Holland's Peter Parker to come into his own as a superhero. Whether consciously or not, promotional images that depict Spider-Man alone against his foes emphasize these themes from the film. With no allies to rely on, Spider-Man will have to carve his own legacy in future installments of the MCU.

With the Homecoming trilogy coming to a close, Spider-Man's future can proceed in any number of ways. While no concrete plans have been confirmed, there are rumors circulating regarding a potential second trilogy taking place during Peter Parker's college years. The introduction of Venom's alien symbiote into the MCU provides the most tantalizing tease of what's to come. Furthermore, the multiversal hijinks from the film will also factor into the upcoming Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. To that end, Spider-Man: No Way Home has proven itself to be one of the most pivotal entries in the entire MCU mythos.
