When is Spider Man no way home?

Spider-Man: No Way Home is scheduled to be released in the United States on December 17, 2021, as part of Phase Four of the MCU. A fourth Spider-Man film is in development. wikipedia.orgSpider-Man: No Way Home

Holland penned the sweetest birthday message Wednesday for Zendaya — his “Spider-Man” co-star and rumored girlfriend — and Marvel fans are losing their minds.

In the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the actors play high school sweethearts MJ and Peter Parker, a.k.a. Spider-Man.

“My MJ, have the happiest of birthdays,” Holland posted on Instagram, along with a behind-the-scenes mirror selfie of the fan-favorite scene partners in costume as the web-slinging hero and his clever class crush. “Gimme a call when your up xxx.”

“Calling now,” Zendaya replied hours later with a heart emoji.

Honestly, just do us all a favor and upside-down kiss already.

Sony Pictures has finally revealed the official title for its third “Spider-Man” film after stars Zendaya and Tom Holland trolled fans with fake ones.

The Emmy winner‘s 25th birthday comes two months after she and Holland, also 25, were photographed k-i-s-s-i-n-g in Los Angeles — seemingly confirming a romance fans had long anticipated and breaking the internet a little bit in the process.

“TOM HOLLAND CALLING ZENDAYA ‘MY MJ’ I CANT DO THIS,” one Marvel lover wrote in a tweet that has amassed more than 47,000 likes.

“Tom went from calling Zendaya mate to birthday girl to MY MJ... :,)” another wrote in a post tracking the evolution of Holland’s last four birthday missives to the “Euphoria” actress.

“Spider-Man: Far From Home” stars Tom Holland and Zendaya celebrated Friday’s news that rival studios Disney and Sony reached a deal for upcoming films.

Zendaya and Holland’s all-but-confirmed off-screen relationship fits neatly into a larger Hollywood tradition of “Spider-Man” stars dating their on-screen love interests: Witness Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone of the “Amazing Spider-Man” films and Tobey Maguire and Kirsten Dunst of the original “Spider-Man” franchise.

Up next, the current castmates are set to appear in their third Spidey adventure, “Spider-Man: No Way Home,” which will hit theaters Dec. 17.

See Zendaya's Flirty Response to Tom Holland's Cute Birthday Tribute: 'Calling Now'

PEOPLE 02 September, 2021 - 05:11am

After the British actor, 25, posted a birthday tribute to his Spider-Man costar and rumored love, Zendaya made sure to respond on his Instagram post.

"My MJ, have the happiest of birthdays. Gimme a call when your up xxx," Holland wrote alongside a cozy mirror selfie of the two still in their Marvel costumes.

"Calling now♥️," Zendaya replied just a few hours later, as seen by Comments by Celebs.

Holland's tribute to Zendaya on her 25th birthday also served as their official Instagram debut.

The post comes weeks after the two have started showing off their love in public.

They were first linked again in early July when they were seen sharing a steamy smooch inside a car.

Since being spotted earlier this summer, Holland and Zendaya have been seen attending a friend's wedding together and grabbing dinner out.

A source previously told PEOPLE back in July 2017 that Zendaya and Holland were romantically involved, though they were linked to other people in the years between the latest sightings.

Zendaya and Holland's third Spider-Man movie together, No Way Home, opens on Dec. 17.

Tom Holland 'goes Instagram official' with Zendaya with sweet Spider-Man birthday dedication

Yahoo! Voices 02 September, 2021 - 05:11am

The couple have been connected on and off since 2017 but neither have publicly spoken about their relationship. 

However, in honour of Zendaya's 25th birthday, Holland posted a sweet behind-the-scenes pic from filming, with Zendaya cuddling up to him from behind while he poses in his Spidey suit.

Alongside it, he wrote: "My MJ, have the happiest of birthdays. Gimme a call when [you're] up xxx"

MJ is Zendaya's character in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and the love interest of Holland's Peter Parker. 

While that could mean little more than a film reference on its own, the photograph comes weeks after the couple were snapped kissing in a parked car together in California.

Within three hours of the photo going up on Instagram, more than 10 million fans had liked it, with most believing it cemented the pair's relationship publicly for the first time. 

It was further cemented by their co-stars sharing their own notes on the picture, with Marisa Tomei, who plays Peter's Aunt May in the films, posting a collection of rose emojis.

The cute couple's romance joins the previous Peter and MJ stars who have also found romance on set. 

Kirsten Dunst dated Tobey Maguire while they filmed their Spider-Man trilogy, getting together during 2002's Spider-Man. However, they had split before the films' third instalment in 2007.

Andrew Garfield dated his Amazing Spider-Man love interest Emma Stone for five years from 2012 – although she portrayed Gwen Stacy, not MJ. They split in 2017. 

In the new MCU, MJ is not short for Mary Jane, but instead has been given a revamp into Michelle Jones. Zendaya's dry-witted character prefers to be called MJ for short. 

The latest Spider-Man film, titled No Way Home, is rumoured to see all three versions of Spider-Man collide as the Marvel series spins into the multiverse for the first time.

The SPDR S&P 500 ETF Trust (NYSE:SPY) traded higher by 0.2% on Wednesday, kicking off September on a high note after seven consecutive months of gains. Unfortunately, September has historically been the worst month for the stock market, so the S&P 500’s seven-month winning streak could be in jeopardy.

September Swoon? The bull market has been incredibly strong so far in 2021, and the S&P 500 clearly has momentum heading into September. However, LPL Financial Chief Market Strategist Ryan Detrick said the month of September has a track record of bringing market momentum to a screeching halt.

“Even last year, in the face of a huge rally off the March 2020 lows, we saw a nearly 10% correction in the middle of September,” Detrick said on Tuesday.

The chart below includes S&P 500 historical returns by month since 1950, 2001 and 2011 and shows September is the worst month of the year and the only one that has produced negative overall returns in each of the three time periods.

Buy The Dip: Detrick said the S&P 500 hasn’t had even a 5% correction since October 2020, and stocks can’t go higher uninterrupted forever. Fortunately for investors, LPL remains bullish on the S&P 500 over the longer term, and Detrick said investors should be looking to buy the dip on any significant seasonal weakness.

LPL also took a closer look at historical seven-month win streaks for the S&P 500. After past seven-month win streaks, the S&P 500 has generated a positive return over the next six months 13 out of 14 times and averaged an impressive 7.8% return during those six months.

Benzinga’s Take: Last year’s 10% S&P 500 September pullback was an excellent buying opportunity, and another September pullback would likely be another great chance to buy the dip.

Investors should be prepared with a watch list of stocks they are interested in buying before a sell-off occurs so they are prepared to make rational, well-considered buying decisions in the heat of a market pullback.
