Speaking during the latest episode of his Sneider Cut podcast, Sneider reported that he’s heard that Willem Dafoe will be reprising his role as Norman Osborne / Green Goblin for the film and will be the one leading the Sinister Six in the film. Sneider mentioned that the iconic group of villains would include Electro (Jamie Foxx), Doctor Octopus (Alfred Molina), and potentially Sandman, Rhino, and Lizard.
After news of the report broke, YouTube personality Grace Rudolph also confirmed the news, posting on social media that she had also heard the news, giving more credence to the story.
This is true.
I’ve been hinting at it a lot myself
and I believe I actually said it on some livestreams…
It is tough with #SpiderManNoWayHome

Plot details on Spider-Man: No Way Home are still under wraps, but is expected to see the titular wall-crawler team up with Benedict Cumberbatch’s Doctor Strange to face off against Jamie Foxx’s Electro, though with the ending of Far from home putting Peter’s secret identity out to the world and the film’s reported ties to the multiverse shenanigans of the Cumberbatch MCU sequel, any number of his rogues’ gallery could show up for a fight.
Alongside Holland and Cumberbatch, the film is confirmed to see the returns of Zendaya (Euphoria) as Peter’s girlfriend and classmate MJ, Jacob Batalon (50 States of Fright) as Peter’s best friend Ned, Marisa Tomei (The King of Staten Island) as Peter’s Aunt May, Tony Revolori (The French Dispatch) as Peter’s classmate rival Eugene “Flash” Thompson and Hannibal Buress (Tag) as Peter’s gym teacher Coach Wilson.
