Spider-Man: No Way Home Trailer Surprises with Green Goblin & Doc Ock

Spider-Man: No Way Home Trailer

Sony and Marvel Studios have released the first trailer for the upcoming Spider-Man: No Way Home.

Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Spider-Man: No Way Home trailer offers a first look at the film. In addition to acting in two solo films, Tom Holland supported the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Peter Parker since the release of Captain America: Civil War in 2016 and appeared in both Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame. Having been part of the MCU for so long now, the new deal (from 2019) between Disney and Marvel Studios confirms Spider-Man will remain there (for now) as his third solo film and a future team-up are included in the deal.

Holland has since returned as Peter Parker in Spider-Man: No Way Home, continuing the character’s story from Spider-Man: Far From Home’s cliffhanger ending. After he was outed as Spider-Man, Peter went on the run after being framed for murdering Mysterio.

Zendaya will return as MJ, Jacob Batalon will return as Ned Leeds, and Marisa Tomei will reprise her Aunt May role. The film also stars Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange, Alfred Molina as Doctor Octopus and Jamie Foxx as Electro. Several former stars of Spider-Man franchises have been rumored to appear, but Holland and Sony have refuted those rumors.

Sony Pictures has released the trailer for Spider-Man: No Way Home, which features Tom Holland’s return as the wall-crawling superhero. The Spider-Man: No Way Home trailer reveals the return of Molina’s Doc Ock — with the evil “Hello Peter” line — and teases the return of Willem Dafoe’s Green Goblin from Maguire’s Spider-Man movies as well. However, although Dafoe is not shown in the movie, his laugh and pumpkin bombs do appear. Take a look at the trailer below.

The bulk of the Spider-Man: No Way Home trailer focuses on setting up the story and showcasing how Peter Parker’s identity will be revealed immediately following Far From Home’s post-credits scene. Thereafter, it appears he is arrested and questioned, while Ned and Aunt May are also questioned. Another MCU character that has been speculated but not confirmed to appear in the film is Charlie Cox’s Matt Murdock. Peter is seen poring over files in a room with perhaps Charlie Cox’s Matt Murdock.

During the film, Peter tries to convince everyone that he isn’t Spider-Man by asking Doctor Strange for help, but the spell goes wrong. In the case that that is the inciting incident, then this trailer is largely holding back the story. This is hinting at somewhat in the trailer, with videos showing Peter being on a train and falling through realities.

Molina’s Doc Ock and Dafoe’s Green Goblin are the big revelations in the trailer for Spider-Man: No Way Home. Around the 2:26 mark of the trailer, there’s a shot of yellow lightning that could be a hint of Foxx’s Electro. Foxx’s lightning was blue when he played Electro in The Amazing Spider-Man 2. But, after Foxx’s casting was announced, he posted an Instagram that hinted at a redesigned Electro. Because his post was later deleted, it’s possible the yellow lightning is being used.

Incorporating these three villains into the MCU multiverse seems to indicate that the past Spider-Man franchises are now part of the MCU, but what part they’ll play remains to be seen. Perhaps Sony will unite all of its movie franchises into a Sinister Six. The next trailer for Spider-Man: No Way Home will no doubt provide more information, but this teaser is good for now to get audiences excited.
