Spider-Man: No Way Home is an American superhero film based on the Marvel Comics character Spider-Man, co-produced by Columbia Pictures and Marvel Studios, and distributed by Sony Pictures Releasing. It is intended to be the sequel to Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) and Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019), and the 27th film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). The film was directed by Jon Watts, written by Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers, and stars Tom Holland, Tobey Maguire, Andrew Garfield alongside Zendaya, J. B. Smoove, Jacob Batalon, Marisa Tomei, Jamie Foxx, Benedict Cumberbatch, and Alfred Molina. The film brought together the three Spider-Man versions of the films

A third MCU Spider-Man film was intended as early as 2017, during production on Homecoming. By August 2019, negotiations between Sony and Marvel Studios to alter their deal—in which they produce the Spider-Man films together—ended with Marvel Studios leaving the project. However, a negative fan reaction led to a new deal between the two companies a month later. Watts, McKenna, Sommers, and Holland were set to return at that time. Filming began in October 2020 in New York City, before moving to Atlanta later that month. During filming, Foxx and Molina were revealed to be appearing in the film, reprising characters from past Spider-Man films. The title was revealed in February 2021, before filming wrapped at the end of March 2021.

Spider-Man: No Way Home was released on December 17, 2021, as part of Phase Four of the MCU.

Considered one of the best films of its decade and one of the best superhero films of all time, the film received critical acclaim for its script, visual effects, soundtrack, performances, cinematography, action sequences and direction. The film also set several records during its streaming exhibition. Spider-Man: No Way Home appeared on the list of the top ten critics of 287 critics, more than any other 2021 film except New Space Order, and more critics (77) named Spider-Man: No Way Home the best film released of year. It also was the most watched film on Disney+ and the 4th most watched film on Netflix.

Of the three films in the trilogy, Spider-Man: No Way Home is darker and more emotional than its prequels.
