Even more than Avengers: Endgame, fans are constantly discussing rumours, possible storylines and actors who could appear. Out of all of the supposedly returning actors for the new Spider-Man flick, none are more exciting than Willem Dafoe.

In an interview with The Wrap, journalists asked Dafoe about his return to Spider-Man. Initially, the actor deflected the question as he was there to discuss the upcoming video game Twelve Minutes. However, the outlet pressed further.
