Welcome to OTTplay Now You Know, one podcast that gives you all the trivia and lesser-known facts and anecdotes for popular films and shows. I'm your host Nikhil

Spider-Man: No Way Home, the third MCU solo Spider-Man movie, has become the highest-grossing Sony Pictures’ movie of all time, besting its previous installment, Spider-Man: Far From Home which was released in 2019. Starring Tom Holland as the web-slinger, the Jon Watts movie has also garnered immensely favorable reviews from critics and fans. Today, we bring to you some interesting facts and trivia that you may not have known about this tentpole. 

1. Benedict Cumberbatch, who reprises his role as Doctor Strange in No Way Home, did not read the script of the movie before filming it since he also wanted to experience watching the film for the first time, like the viewers. 

2. Jacob Batalon underwent significant weight loss, of around 50 kgs, for his role in the film. However, the actor, who plays Peter Parker’s best friend Ned Leeds in the film, admitted that the weight loss was also a lifestyle choice he made. 

3. The first official trailer of Spider-Man: No Way Home is now the most-watched trailer ever on YouTube within a span of 24 hours. The record was earlier held by another MCU movie. It is, of course, Avengers: Endgame. 

4. Tom Holland’s younger brother Harry could have had his big Hollywood break with the film. He had shot for a cameo sequence in it as a drug dealer, much like his previous appearance in Cherry. Unfortunately, the scene was later edited out. 

5. In Spider-Man: No Way Home, Flash Thompson's book is titled Flashpoint. This is a sly reference to DC, which also has a similar comic book revolving around The Flash. 

6. In the scene where Tom Holland comes face to face with Doctor Otto Octavius on the bridge, he is seen wearing a suit identical to the one Tobey wore in the first portion of Spider-Man 3.

Well, that's the OTTplay Now You Know film for today's podcast. I shall be back again soon with another episode, until then it's your host Nikhil signing out.
