It’s no surprise that Marvel Studios’ “Spider-Man: No Way Home” will push its titular character (Tom Holland) to his emotional and physical limits by introducing past villains from previous franchises. And that becomes very clear he’s going to need some big help in the newest trailer. Of course, since it is a trailer, they’ve got to keep a few cards close to the chest by not revealing the worst kept secret.
The newest trailer features appearances from iconic baddies such as Doctor Octopus, Electro (Jamie Foxx), Sandman, the Green Goblin (Willem DaFoe) and the Lizard. How they will all interact with each other to take down the MCU Spidey remains to be seen. But one thing is for sure, they all have an axe to grind against anyone who shares that Monkier. If anything, the one to watch out for is Alfred Molina’s Doctor Otto Octavius.
But if we are to believe what Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) hints at the end of this trailer, we can expect a few more surprises that may help from your friendly neighborhood you know who.
Of course, the multiverse was always going to be a narrative possibility for the MCU considering how “Spider-Man: Far From Home” teased it, “WandaVision,” “Loki,” and “What If…” stepped foot into it, and “Venom: There Will Be Carnage” flat out did a B&E.
Here’s the official plot synopsis for “Spider-Man: No Way Home:”
For the first time in the cinematic history of Spider-Man, our friendly neighborhood hero’s identity is revealed, bringing his Super Hero responsibilities into conflict with his normal life and putting those he cares about most at risk. When he enlists Doctor Strange’s help to restore his secret, the spell tears a hole in their world, releasing the most powerful villains who’ve ever fought a Spider-Man in any universe. Now, Peter will have to overcome his greatest challenge yet, which will not only forever alter his own future but the future of the Multiverse.
“Spider-Man: No Way Home” also stars Zendaya, Benedict Cumberbatch, Jacob Batalon, Jon Favreau, with Marisa Tomei.
Directed by Jon Watts, “Spider-Man: No Way Home” opens in theaters on December 17, 2021.
