Since Captain America: Civil War in 2016, Tom Holland has played Peter Parker in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, starring in two solo films and appearing in both Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame.
After a new deal was signed between Marvel Studios/Disney and Sony Pictures in 2019, Spider-Man was confirmed to remain in the MCU (for the time being) with the announcement of a third solo film, as well as another team-up.
Since then, Spider-Man: No Way Home has taken shape, with Holland reprising his role as Peter Parker to continue the character’s tale from Spider-Man: Far From Home’s cliffhanger finale. In that film, Peter was revealed to be Spider-Man and was falsely accused of murdering Mysterio, forcing him to flee.
In addition to Holland, Zendaya will reprise her role as MJ, Jacob Batalon will reprise his role as Ned Leeds, and Marisa Tomei will reprise her role as Aunt May. Benedict Cumberbatch will play Doctor Strange, Alfred Molina will play Doctor Octopus, and Jamie Foxx will play Electro in Spider-Man: No Way Home.
Former Spider-Man franchise stars Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield have also been rumored to feature, although those claims have been debunked by Holland and Sony. The Spider-Man: No Way Home movie trailer is now available, giving fans their first look at the MCU flick.
The Spider-Man: No Way Home movie trailer was released by Sony Pictures, and it features Tom Holland reprising his role as the wall-crawling superhero. The Spider-Man: No Way Home video also teases the return of Molina’s Doc Ock – with the terrifying statement “Hello Peter” – and the return of Willem Dafoe’s Green Goblin, both from Maguire’s Spider-Man films. Dafoe’s chuckle and his version of Green Goblin’s pumpkin bombs emerge albeit he isn’t depicted.
check out the trailer below:
The majority of the Spider-Man: No Way Home trailer concentrates on setting up the plot of the film, which begins up just after the events of Far From Home’s post-credits scene, which revealed Peter’s identity. Following that, he appears to be arrested and questioned, along with Ned and Aunt May.
Peter is shown reading over paperwork in a room with a man dressed in a white button-up shirt and tie, who could be Charlie Cox’s Matt Murdock, another MCU character reported but unconfirmed to appear in the film. The film’s main plot appears to take up when Peter asks Doctor Strange for help forgetting he’s Spider-Man, but the spell goes awry.
If that’s the beginning of the Spider-Man: No Way Home plotline, then this trailer is keeping a lot of the plot from us. All of the reality-bending action moments in the trailer, from Peter being on the train to him plummeting across realities, hint at this.
Of course, Molina’s Doc Ock and, to a lesser extent, Dafoe’s Green Goblin are the big revelations in the Spider-Man: No Way Home trailer.
Around the 2:26 mark of the clip, there’s a sight of yellow lightning that could be a preview of Foxx’s Electro. Foxx’s lightning was blue when he first appeared as Electro in The Amazing Spider-Man 2. However, Foxx promised a new look for Electro in an Instagram post he later deleted shortly after his casting was revealed, so the yellow lightning might be part of Electro’s overhaul.
These three villains appear to hint that previous Spider-Man franchises are part of the MCU cosmos, although it’s unclear how they’ll tie into the tale. Perhaps Sony is preparing to bring together villains from all three films in a Sinister Six.
More will undoubtedly be revealed in a future Spider-Man: No Way Home trailer, but for the time being, this is a solid teaser to keep fans psyched about the film.
