When does “Spider-Man: No Way Home” come out? It depends on where you live.

Per ComicBook.com, “Spider-Man: No Way Home” will be released on Dec. 15 in the European market, which is two days before its release date of Dec. 17 in the United States.

That means that United Kingdom viewers will have a chance to see the movie days before those in the United States, opening the doors for movie spoilers to flow out from the United Kingdom.

That said, midnight and early screenings will happen on Thursday, Dec. 16, in the United State as they often do. So really, the U.K. is seeing the movie one day early.

Fandango writer Erik Davis said Marvel and Sony would likely host fan screenings early in the week, too, which would give big Marvel Cinematic Universe fans a chance to see the film before it hits theaters.

However, there’s a chance that Marvel spoilers could still trickle out, even for those who see the early screenings. For example, “Eternals” did not include post-credits scenes in some press screenings (like mine), which meant I didn’t know about the MCU debt of a character or the voice at the end of the movie. Reporters who went to the world premiere event in Hollywood did spoiled the credit scenes online.

There has been a lot of secrecy surrounding “Spider-Man: No Way Home” since its announcement. There have been plenty of rumors and leaks circulating the internet about the movie and what it might lead to down the road. Early screenings like those in the United Kingdom may lead to spoilers and more leaks from the film.

So make sure to keep off Twitter and the internet in the days leading up to the film’s debut if you want to enter the theater without spoilers.
