The latest iteration of Spider-Man is almost back on our screens.
That's right, Spider-Man: No Way Home will pick up where Spider-Man: Far From Home left off as we follow Peter Parker ( Tom Holland ) as he figures out how to live in a brave new world that knows his secret identity.
However, this time he not only once again has girlfriend MJ ( Zendaya ) and Ned Leeds (Jacob Batalon) by his side, but has some new allies too if reports are to be believed.
So, with all of this in mind and the rumour mill running into overdrive, here is all you need to know about No Way Home.
Oh, and don't forget to let us know your theories in the comments.

The report also suggested returns for Kirsten Dunst as Mary Jane Watson from the Maguire films by director Sam Raimi and Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy from the Garfield films from director Marc Webb.
However, speaking to Esquire, Tom Holland denied that there would be returns for Maguire and Garfield, saying: "No, no, they will not be appearing in this film. Unless they have hidden the most massive piece of information from me, which I think is too big of a secret for them to keep from me.
"But as of yet, no. It’ll be a continuation of the Spider-Man movies that we've been making."
Spider-Man 3 plot
Little is known about the plot for the third film in Tom Holland's series of Spider-Man films.

Spider-Man Far From Home ending explained: Where are we left for MCU Phase 4?
The previous chapter, Far From Home, concluded with Peter Parker's secret life as Spider-Man being exposed to the world by J. Jonah Jameson (a returning J.K. Simmons from Sam Raimi's Spider-Man films), after having been framed for evil crimes by Mysterio/Quentin Beck ( Jake Gyllenhaa l).
The new film will include scenes set at Christmas time if photos are anything to go by.
With Doctor Strange's inclusion and his own superhero film focuses on the Multiverse, could the new Spider-Man film mirror the award-winning Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse with multiple versions of the web-slinger?
