The long-awaited second Spider-Man: No Way Home trailer has finally arrived, and we’ve compiled a list of all the major plot twists and Easter eggs.
The anticipation for Spider-Man: No Way Home is rising to a climax, with the internet buzzing with anticipation for the second trailer.
The trailer, though, proved to be an unusual one when it was finally published; as action-packed as it may be, much of the focus was on what it didn’t show.
Spider-Man: No Way Home is a multiverse adventure in which Peter Parker tries to change history with Doctor Strange, but things go horribly wrong, bringing great villains from other film franchises into the MCU.
There have been persistent rumors that it will also include the return of Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield, who will reprise their roles as Spider-Man with Tom Holland;
it was widely expected that Sony would wait until Spider-Man: No Way Home’s second teaser to confirm their inclusion.
But, in the end, Garfield and Maguire are completely missing, leaving the spotlight on Holland’s MCU Spider-Man.
Still, that’s not to say the trailer was a letdown; it’s chock-full of surprises, confirming Spider-Man: No Way Home’s core plot beats and setting up a very amazing final act.
The significant revelations from the second Spider-Man: No Way Home trailer, as well as their consequences, are listed below.
1. He doesnt want MJ to forget
The emotional center of Spider-Man: No Way Home’s trailer is Peter Parker’s connection with MJ, with Peter revealing that she is the only thing in his life that makes him feel normal.
After his secret identity was disclosed to the world, Spider-Man experiences a conflict between his two egos, which is addressed in a classic Spider-Man manner, with the wall-crawler desiring a normal life but unwilling to give up the duty of being Spider-Man.
This explains why Spider-Man panics when he discovers Doctor Strange’s spell will wipe everyone’s memories of who he is
– he doesn’t want to lose what he has with MJ as much as he wants to reclaim his privacy.
2. The villain names were… bad
The Spider-Man: No Way Home trailer cuts between glimpses of the wall-crawler defeating various enemies and a chat between Spider-Man, his buddies, and Doctor Octopus.
Doctor Octopus, played by Alfred Molina, appears to be the most prominent multiversal villain in Spider-Man: No Way Home and the dialogue between Doctor Octopus and Peter Parker will almost certainly be crucial in establishing some sort of connection between them.
It helps that he’s probably the only one of the evil guys who understands what’s going on because he’s a scientific genius.
The kids’ reactions are amusing when he tells them his name, with Marvel finally admitting that some of its characters’ names sound terrible
3. It explains the Villains
Another spectacular scene shows Doctor Strange casting the magic to erase Spider-secret Man’s identity, which is thwarted by Peter Parker’s conversation.
This time, however, the VFX shot is accompanied by dialogue that explains why villains from previous Spider-Man films appear in the MCU; it appears that this universe has begun receiving “visitors” from other dimensions, including Spider-enemies Man’s who have made their way through to this dimension.
This is similar to the post-credits sequence in Venom: Let There Be Carnage, which implies that all of the evil guys have been brought through and are reeling from their ordeal.
4. He has to catch them all
Doctor Strange holds Spider-Man accountable for the spell’s failure, and as a result, he’s assigned him a mission: to sweep the globe for villains who have fallen through the cracks.
Spider-Man: No Way Home teaser shows the wall-crawler summoning a mystic effect around his glove, implying that Doctor Strange is the one who provides him his new costume.
The suspicions that Spider-Man will use his suit’s magic to transfer enemies into a mystical prison have been confirmed, with the mystery “box” seen in previous trailers presumably being the jail.
5. MJ wont give up
One of the most endearing moments in the Spider-Man: No Way Home trailer is when MJ confronts Doctor Strange, pointing out that everything is his responsibility – after all, he’s the one who botched a spell in front of a chatty teenager.
In actuality, she has every right to hold Doctor Strange accountable, given that the magic he was practicing was dangerous, and his more experienced colleague Wong had advised him not to use it.
Doctor Strange isn’t exactly portraying the role of Sorcerer Supreme.
6. The villains don’t stand a chance
Doctor Strange says that each of the villains Spider-Man has caught is doomed to die fighting different versions of him in their own timeline in a devastating twist.
Spider-Man in the Marvel Cinematic Reality is extremely different from the other heroes in his universe; in Spider-Man: Homecoming, he was hesitant to even throw fists, and in Spider-Man: Far From Home, he was startled by Mysterio’s death.
Now he must make a conscious decision to let enemies die – an ethical choice that goes to the heart of his character.
It fits in well with the Spider-Man mythology on a thematic level.
7. J. Jonah Jameson Returns
In Spider-Man: No Way Home, J.K. Simmons’ J. Jonah Jameson is one of the returning Spider-Man enemies, as seen in a moment where he glances up into an effect-filled sky.
When his Daily Bugle newspaper obtained the dirt on Spider-secret Man’s identity in Spider-Man: Far From Home, Simmons made a surprise comeback to the franchise.
Hopefully, the glimpse of Jameson in the Spider-Man: No Way Home trailer suggests that he will be developed as a character in the MCU, with Spider-Man confronting him for ruining his life at some time.
8. Spiderman’s relationship
The friendship between Spider-Man and Doctor Strange was always going to fall apart in Spider-Man: No Way Home, and it appears that the ethical discussion over allowing the villains to die is the cause.
Doctor Strange is eager to let these villains return to their previous lives in alternate realms, but Spider-Man refuses.
Again, this is consistent with the characters in the comics, where Spider-Man has even sworn an oath that no one will die while he is on the scene.
9. Doc Ock gets an upgrade
Doctor Octopus upgrades his arms, according to the Spider-Man: No Way Home trailer.
The new pieces’ hue suggests Doc Ock’s tentacles are derived from Stark technology, which is likely simpler to access now that Tony Stark is dead – though the trailer also suggests he uses nanotech from Peter’s suit.
That’s an amusing Easter egg because Doctor Octopus’ arms were supposed to be Stark technology rather than his own creation in Sam Raimi’s initial draught for Spider-Man 2.
It’ll be interesting to see what the improved arms of Doctor Octopus can do; they could have new talents.
10. the villains and the future?
The enormity of the problem is confirmed in the Spider-Man: No Way Home trailer, with Doctor Strange implying that the existence of beings from other realities is undermining the cosmos itself.
There’s been no evidence of this in the MCU’s multiverse before – variations have been traveling about the timelines since Avengers: Endgame and the main MCU timeline already has an alternate-dimension Gamora living in it – but it’s probable a critical mass has been achieved.
If this is the fact, the universe gets a little more unstable every time a new Spider-Man villain enters the MCU.
11. Electros improvement
The MCU has resurrected Jamie Foxx’s Electro and improved the design of The Amazing Spider-Man 2.
Electro in the Spider-Man: No Way Home trailer looks much like the comic book character, right down to the electricity sparking around his face in a pattern reminiscent of his comic book mask.
Fortunately, it appears that Spider-new Man’s outfit was purposefully meant to aid him in combating Electro – another idea straight from the pages of the comics.
12. Green Goblin strikes again
Willem Dafoe reprises his role as the Green Goblin in Spider-Man: No Way Home, establishing himself as the most dangerous of the multiverse’s adversaries.
Unlike the others, the Green Goblin isn’t afraid to go after Peter Parker’s family. Norman Osborn tries to get into Spider-head Man’s in order to deceive him in the Spider-Man: No Way Home trailer and his conversation have a psychological edge to it.
The Green Goblin was the one who persuaded Spider-foes Man’s to band together against him in the guise of the Sinister Six in the comics, and the same is likely to be true in Spider-Man: No Way Home, with Osborn persuading the convicts to band together.
13. Harry Osborn?
Another man flying out of the moonlight, apparently on something close to a Goblin Glider, is one of the oddest pictures in the Spider-Man: No Way Home trailer.
This sparked speculation that it may be Harry Osborn from the Raimi trilogy, a character from another universe, or perhaps Jacob Batalon completing his comic book destiny, with Ned Leeds donning the Hobgoblin suit.
However, in the 4K version of the video, Willem Dafoe is still dressed up, but for some reason, his costume has changed.
This may be because he’s been defeated and is trying to come back stronger, or he’s playing a different version of the Goblin.
14. Sandman & The Lizard Join
Several villains gang together in one of the most dramatic moments in the Spider-Man: No Way Home trailer, including the return of the Lizard and the Sandman.
Sandman’s presence is notable because, unlike the others, he did not perish in the fight against Spider-Man in Spider-Man 3; nonetheless, this form of Sandman could be from a universe viewers have never seen before, one in which he met a different fate.
The fact that Lizard jumps at an imaginary enemy – and reels as if punched by them
– suggests Sony has carelessly edited Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire’s Spider-Men out of these pictures suggests Sony has clumsily edited Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire’s Spider-Men out of these photos.
15. MJ’s death
The emphasis on Spider-Man and MJ’s connection is reminiscent of the Peter and Gwen plotline in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, and the subtext becomes more obvious as the trailer progresses.
In the comic book story “The Night Gwen Stacy Died,” MJ is portrayed plummeting to her apparent death in a similar fashion to Gwen Stacy.
Spider-Man rushes to her aid, seeking to save her life, but he must be careful not to shatter her neck with a quick stop.
However, it’s possible that things will turn out differently, with Andrew Garfield’s Spider-Man stepping in to prevent history from repeating itself.
16. Everything in danger
Doctor Strange and Spider-Man look up as the multiverse begins to implode in the Spider-Man: No Way Home trailer.
The result is evocative of a comic fiction scenario known as an incursion, in which parallel universes clash, potentially destroying each other.
Doctor Strange tries to keep it at bay, but the intrusion is likely to be stopped only by sending all of the criminals back.
Spider-Man finds himself in the difficult situation of having to breach his code in order to rescue the universe – and it’s possible that the ramifications of this will extend to Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
