Watch the first movie trailer for Spider-Man: No Way Home


The first official Spider-Man: No Way Home trailer has finally arrived, being the third Spider-Man movie to be part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Sony revealed the teaser as part of its CinemaCon presentation following the previous day’s leak.

For the first time in the cinematic history of Spider-Man, our friendly neighbourhood hero is unmasked and no longer able to separate his normal life from the high-stakes of being a Super Hero. When he asks for help from Doctor Strange the stakes become even more dangerous, forcing him to discover what it truly means to be Spider-Man.

Set photos way back in January hinted that the sequel planned to confront the fallout of Spider-Man: Far From Home, but turns out the real tidbits were the set photos of Peter Parker hanging out at Doctor Strange’s New York stoop: that’s where the crux of the film’s twist resides. Early toy leaks hinted at the Marvel crossover, splicing together the MCU heroes, but without context, it wasn’t clear how their paths crossed.

With a stellar cast including: Tom Holland (Pictured below), Benedict Cumberbatch, Jon Favreau, Jacob Batalon and Marisa Tomei it is sure to be a box office hit.

Now we know: Peter’s sudden public visibility leaves him vulnerable, desperate for anonymity again. He turns to his pal for help in erasing Mysterio’s announcement. The Sorcerer Supreme obliges, his subsequent spell causing reality to split, while he also takes over the mentor role left vacant by Tony Stark. It’s an interesting turn; Stephen’s decision to grant Parker this wish feeling curiously careless.

“We tampered with the stability of space-time,” Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) intones at the movie trailer teaser’s peak. “The multiverse is a concept about which we know frighteningly little.”




The bulk of the teaser builds to the moment Strange conducts his spell, with a fleeting montage of action shots thereafter. Most of them include the two sparring; once on a New York street, where Strange knocks Parker “out” of Spider-Man and again on top of a speeding train (nice Spider-Man 2 callback).

“Be careful what you wish for, Parker,” Doctor Strange cautions, as Peter realizes the enormity of his desire. But it’s too late and we get the biggest reveal of the trailer – Alfred Molina as Doctor Octopus, a role he originally played in 2004’s Spider-Man 2, in which Toby Maguire played Peter Parker.

While they don’t make an appearance here Maguire and Andrew Garfield, who took up the mantle in The Amazing Spider-Man and its sequel, both have been rumored to appear alongside Jamie Foxx’s Electro, from the Garfield Spidey sequel, who is almost certainly back for the film.

Spider-Man: No Way Home hits theaters on December 17, 2021.
