Fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe love the bond between Ned Leeds and Peter Parker in the Spider-Man movies, especially because the real-life friendship between Jacob Batalon and Tom Holland makes it feel even more real. Their friendship brings a lot of joy to the screen, but longtime fans of Marvel Comics keep waiting for another shoe to drop. In the comics, Ned becomes the villainous Hobgoblin, and folks are wondering if the on-screen version of the character will ever follow the same story.
Before Spider-Man: No Way Home dropped and took over the box office, there was a multitude of rumors swirling around about which characters or actors would or wouldn’t appear in the threequel. Some appearances proved to be true (the Spider-Man Holy Trinity) while others were just false rumors. One rumor that had no merit was the possible introduction of Hobgoblin. The rumors had Jacob Batalon (aka Ned Leeds) becoming the villain. Months after No Way Home hit theaters, Batalon responded to the hearsay.

Fortunately, it turns out Reginald isn’t entirely without powers of his own.

While moviegoers are still reeling from Spider-Man: No Way Home’s finale, the great moments shared between Peter Parker, MJ, and Ned can live on in their minds (and on the small screen).
