‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ Trailer Arrives, Brings Different Villains From Past Spider-Man Franchises
After months of speculation, leaks, and speculation, we finally have our first look at Spider-Man: No Way Home. While it only features one Spider-Man, the possibilities for appearances in other Marvel films are limitless. After Peter is outed by Mysterio‘s expertly edited footage in Spider-Man: Far From Home, the third Spider-Man film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe follows up where Spider-Man: Far From Home left off.
Peter seeks Doctor Strange‘s help in reversing time and undoing his life’s implosion. What follows appears to be a multiversal accident — and it does not appear to be going well for anyone involved. J.K. Simmons reprised his role as J. Jonah Jameson in Sam Raimi‘s Spider-Man film and the Ultimate Spider-Man cartoon series in the post-credits scene in Spider-Man: Far From Home, providing the first hints of the multiverse.
Jameson presents a talk show in the post-credits scene, where he discloses Spider-true Man’s identity as Peter Parker. Following Loki’s death, we now know that the MCU comprises various timelines and worlds. To enter one, all it takes is a superhuman with the proper touch. Doctor Strange, to the rescue. Strange’s first appearance since Avengers: Endgame will be in No Way Home, which appears to be a prelude to his next solo film, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
Over the last few months, rumors and leaks have suggested that No Way Home would be the first film in the MCU to experiment with timelines and alternate universes, specifically by bringing in villains and heroes from previous Spider-Man reboots.
That, however, does not occur in this trailer… which could mean that it isn’t genuine or that Marvel is keeping secrets. Even if they aren’t officially from the multiverse, we do know that some familiar faces, such as Alfred Molina‘s Dr. Otto Octavius from Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 2, are returning.
While Molina appears in this trailer, a few other villains will also appear. So far, Jamie Foxx‘s Electro from The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is set to appear. Willem Dafoe‘s Green Goblin may also occur, as his bomb from Raimi’s first Spider-Man film appears on screen and his laugh echoes near the end of the trailer.
Spider-Man: No Way Home will be released exclusively in theaters on December 17th. The film will be the fourth Marvel film released in 2021, following a year with no releases from the superhero studio. The threequel follows this summer’s Black Widow and Shang-Chi and the November release of The Eternals.
