After an early leak that could have launched one of them, the trailer for Spider-Man: No Way Home is now available anyway, confirms Peter Parker (Tom Holland) – and some new old enemies – arriving at the Marvel multiverse.
But don’t take our word for it. Watch the full trailer that debuted Monday night at Cinemacon, now at the top.
To go into the chase, yes everyone, the villain of “Spider-Man II” Doctor Octopus, played by Alfred Molina, is in the movie. Surprise It’s not a surprise, is it? But most importantly, it is as sure as hell that Willem Dafoe’s smiling pomegranate grin from Greene’s pomegranate clearly accompanies a grinning pomegranate. What we say is William, cool bastard, we know you were cute.
How did this happen? It turns out Stephen Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) is a bit irresponsible when it comes to serious magic and gives poorly clear instructions to teenagers, just like that.
Remember that twist in Spider-Man: Far From Home where J. Jonah Jameson revealed Spider-Man’s secret identity to the world? This completely ruined Peter’s life. Now he is a public threat, everyone is afraid of him, he is harassed by the cops and his personal life is in turmoil. So he went to Doctor Strange to ask if there was a magical way to make everyone forget about her,
Wong (Bendict Wong) thinks it’s a really bad idea, but Strange ignores this advice and executes a spell. Except for this process, Peter continued to interrupt Strange, shattering his concentration, causing the spell to destroy reality. Oops.
Of course, Molina (and yes, Dafoe, I know you like this guy) aren’t the only characters from the previous Spider era to have made their way into the MCU in No Way Home. Jamie Foxx, who played Electro in the 2014 movie The Amazing Spider-Man 2, is in it too. And we’re pretty sure, though we don’t know for sure, of course, that the rumors about Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield on the subject are also true.
Hell, there are a lot of characters from previous Spider-Franchises that could emerge from other realities. Perhaps Mary Jane Watson (Kirsten Dunst) and Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone) will meet MJ (Zendaya). Maybe the full head version of J Jonah Jameson will come head to head with a completely bald version of the MCU. (Hey, JK Simmons did prove the goodwill of the multiverse on the TV series The Counterpart, right?) Heck, we can finally get the Sinister Six.
Marvel, please contact us, we have good ideas.
Zendaya, Marisa Tomei, Jacob Batalone and Tony Revolori also star in Spider-Man: No Way Home. “Homecoming” and “Far From Home” director John Watts also returns.
Spider-Man: No Way Home will hit theaters on December 17, 2021.
