Hannibal Buress Baits 'Spider-Man: No Way Home' Return with "Hannibal Verse" Verse
Hear the late-entry "song of the summer" contender
Published Aug 30, 2021With the overwhelming onslaught of role reprisals teased in last week's first teaser trailer for Spider-Man: No Way Home, you might not have noticed that Coach Wilson (from 2017's Spider-Man: Homecoming) was missing. Hannibal Buress is here to remind you.
In a video posted to Twitter, Buress seems to confirm that his gym teacher character will in fact also be returning for director John Watts' No Way Home alongside the likes of Alfred Molina's Doctor Octopus, Willem Dafoe's Green Goblin, Jamie Foxx's Electro and possibly previous spideys Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire.
They'll join the current mainstay cast members Tom Holland, Zendaya, Marisa Tomei, Jon Favreau and Jacob Batalon, as well as Benedict Cumberbatch's Doctor Strange.
Naturally, this confirmation comes in the form of a Buress rap entitled "Coach Wilson: Into the Hannibal Verse."
"Coach Wilson in it! / Two scenes, maybe three? / Yeah, we'll see what they keep," the comedian verified in verse: "I don't know, I haven't seen the cut / You know Marvel — very secret[ive.]" He goes on to deliver some more bars about his experience filming the movie in Atlanta.
The musical clip was made in collaboration with 2scenez, DJ Flux Pavilion and Buress' own company Isola Man Media. He's boldly calling the rap "the song of the summer," and despite its belated timing, we'll have to give it its due consideration — after all, "Spider / Spider-Man / Spider" is truly moving stuff.

The official title for the third instalment of the third iteration of the Spider-Man film saga was announced in February of this year. (Everything happens in threes?)
