With the new Spider-Man trailer out yesterday, rumors surrounding the production have been going on for months now. Any character who’s appeared in multiple franchises is up for grabs to appear in the future. But it’s confirmed, per Comicbook.com, that Kingpin will probably not appear in the upcoming film, No Way Home.
On Monday, Daredevil star Vincent D’Onofrio tweeted that he’s not appearing in the feature, despite the rumors circulating around. D’Onofrio says, “I can’t wait to see it. I’m not in it, but I hear it’s a very cool film.”

Andrew Garfield is another actor rumored to appear, but he’s been the most vocal about the opposite being true.
He reveals on The Today Show, “Listen, I’m not in the film. I love Spider-Man, I always have, I was so happy to have played the part. I’m so excited to see what they do with the third one. Just like you are, to be honest. That’s not the diplomatic answer, I really, really mean it. I love Tom Holland, I love [director] Jon Watts, I love [producers] Amy Pascal and Kevin Feige, and what they’ve done with those movies and that character. It’s an important character to me. So I’m just really excited to see what happens in the third one, as you guys are.”
Confirmed cast members of No Way Home include Tom Holland, Alfred Molina, Willem Dafoe, Marisa Tomei, Jacob Batalon, Jon Favreau, and Zendaya.
Spider-Man: No Way Home will be released exclusively in theaters on December 17th.
