No Way Home leaks and spoilers are already out there on social media, creating a storm of controversy and re-igniting the debate about media, and social media, and the ethics of spoilage. If you are a Marvel fan that was lucky enough to avoid the big revealing images and info from the press insiders - imagine what's coming in the days after Spider-Man: No Way Home is out theer in UK theaters...
In our article "Spider-Man: No Way Home Leaks - How to Mute Words and Avoid Spoilers Online" we warned fans that they need to batten down the hatches on the social media accounts: unless big Spider-Man: No Way Home spoilers are your preference:
"On Twitter—both on the website and on mobile—navigate to your Settings and Privacy section. There, you'll find a 'Privacy and safety' tab with a handful of different options, but the one you'll want is 'Mute and block,' the page that'll give you the option to mute certain words and hashtags.
Once you click on Mute and block, navigate to 'Muted words' and add the following terms in there: Spider-Man, and No Way Home. While that should cover most of your bases, you might as well mute hashtags associated with the project as well. A cursory glance says it'd be wise to also mute #SpiderMan, #NoWayHome, #SpiderManNoWayHome, and #SpiderMan3 just to be safe."
"For the first time in the cinematic history of Spider-Man, our friendly neighborhood hero is unmasked and no longer able to separate his normal life from the high-stakes of being a Super Hero. When he asks for help from Doctor Strange the stakes become even more dangerous, forcing him to discover what it truly means to be Spider-Man."
Spider-Man: No Way Home will be in UK theaters on December 15th and US theaters on December 17th.
