Analysis: Will Happy Hogan Die in Spider-Man No Way Home?

The first trailer for Spider-Man: No Way Home was released on August 23rd, and since then, fans have been speculating on who could potentially die in the film. The top candidates are Zendaya’s MJ, Jon Favreau’s Happy Hogan, or even Jacob Batalon’s Ned Leeds. However, a few clips from the trailer could point to Happy Hogan dying in this film.  

We see a clip of Happy surrounded by a SWAT team. The SWAT team aims their guns at something past Happy’s car. More importantly, Happy doesn’t seem worried about the SWAT team but instead concerned about something to the right of his vehicle. Hence, who or what is threatening the SWAT team and Happy? The Lizard.

Looking back at the Amazing Spider-Man 1 from 2012, a SWAT team attempted to take down the Lizard. Logically speaking, a SWAT team would be a method in trying to defeat a human-lizard hybrid. For example, the Lizard could be breaking out of Strange’s prison and the SWAT team would be called over. Happy could be unfortunately in the middle of of the fight and die. Thus, it’s easy to connect the dots and theorize that Happy dies from the hands of Lizard in Spider-Man: No Way Home.
