Spider-Man: No Way Home will now release Thursday, December 16 in cinemas in India, a day earlier than originally announced. Sony Pictures Entertainment India revealed the new release date on Monday via its social media channels, though it provided no reason as to why this was happening. Gadgets 360 has reached out for comment and we will update if we hear back. For Spider-Man fans in India, this is great news though as it shortens the wait by a day. And if we have previews (as yet unclear), there's a possibility that you can watch Spider-Man: No Way Home on the evening of Wednesday, December 15.
That would put audiences in India at the forefront. Spider-Man: No Way Home is set to release Wednesday, December 15 in select markets, including Finland, France, Indonesia, Ireland, Italy, Norway, Russia, South Korea, Sweden, and the UK. The December 16 India release date for the new Spider-Man movie puts us in line with Spidey fans in Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Czechia, Denmark, Germany, Hungary, Malaysia, Mexico, the Netherlands, Portugal, Singapore, Slovakia, and Ukraine.
