Sony Pictures teased a brand new trailer for Spider-Man: No Way Home yesterday, then dropped stated trailer this night at a worldwide fan occasion in Los Angeles, that includes a shock look by star Tom Holland. In the trailer, a magic spell gone incorrect unleashes a multiverse of villainy on Peter Parker’s world. But followers hoping for affirmation of rumored cameos from Spider-Man actors of the previous had been as soon as once more disillusioned.

(Spoilers for  2019’s Spider-Man: Far From Home under.)

In 2019’s Spider-Man: Far From Home, Peter Parker (Holland) was grieving the lack of his mentor, Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.), who perished within the closing battle in opposition to Thanos in Avengers: Endgame. What higher than a summer time subject journey to Europe to assist him course of his grief? Then Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) confirmed up and enlisted Spider-Man’s assist in battling a sequence of Elementals. Peter thought he’d discovered a brand new mentor in Quentin Beck, aka Mysterio (Jake Gyllenhaal). But Beck had his personal agenda and betrayed Peter. The two battled it out, and Beck was killed. But he bought his revenge by sending doctored footage of the climactic battle to Jonah Jameson at The Daily Bugle.

Spider-Man: No Way Home picks up within the aftermath of that devastating reveal. A teaser trailer leaked in August, prompting Sony to launch it formally the subsequent day. We noticed a pissed off Peter hunt down Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) for assist, asking if there was any method to restore his secret id. Our previous buddy Wong (Benedict Wong) warned Strange to not forged the spell that would grant Peter’s request. But since when has Strange ever listened to Wong? Naturally, the spell goes haywire, inflicting different dimensions to crash into their actuality.


We bought hints that Electro (Jamie Foxx), from 2014’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2, will make an look, in addition to Willem Dafoe’s Green Goblin from 2002’s Spider-Man and Alfred Molina’s Otto Octavius, aka Doctor Octopus (affectionately generally known as Doc Ock). But there was no signal of both Tobey Maguire or Andrew Garfield, each previous incarnations of the web-slinging superhero.

And we do not get to see them within the new footage, both, though we do get a greater have a look at the aforementioned villains from different universes, together with the Lizard (Rhys Ifans) from 2012’s The Amazing Spider-Man and Sandman (Thomas Haden Church) from 2007’s Spider-Man 3 (granular media for the win). This new trailer opens with Peter Parker confessing to MJ (Zendaya) that, ever since he was bitten by that radioactive spider, he is solely felt regular for precisely one week—the week after she discovered he was Spider-Man. But we do not waste a lot time dwelling on his non-public angst, since Doctor Strange exhibits up with some dangerous information concerning the repercussions of their botched spell. “We began getting some guests from each universe,” he says.

Doc Ock will get the vast majority of display time right here, rapidly realizing that this Peter Parker is not the identical one from his universe. And the identify Dr. Otto Octavius would not have fairly the chilling impact he anticipated on Peter, MJ, and Ned (Jacob Batalon), who can not help guffawing once they hear it. (“Wait, no, severely, what’s your precise identify?”) Kids at the moment don’t have any respect. Their mission this time round is to ship the intruders again to their very own worlds, or as Strange places it, “Scooby-Doo this crap!”

Of course, technically Peter is preventing ghosts, since all these villains died preventing Spider-Man. And Peter appears to be having hassle with that harsh actuality. “You’re struggling to have every little thing you need whereas the world tries to make you select,” we hear the Green Goblin say. And Peter does appear to comprehend that not solely is the current mess his fault (his and Strange’s), he most likely cannot save everybody. But can he save MJ as she falls from a staggering peak? Or are we going to get a Gwen Stacy-style tragedy?

Spider-Man: No Way Home hits theaters on December 17, 2021. We strongly advocate solely going to films in theaters in case you’ve been absolutely vaccinated and put on a masks all through the screening.
