Sony Pictures has revealed the very first teaser for Spider-Man: No Way Home, the third Spider-Man movie in the latest rendition of Spidey. The teaser wasn’t a huge surprise, as leaks yesterday seemed to suggest a trailer was on the way. Then late today insiders were noting the trailer would drop sometime after 9 pm eastern. And lo and behold, it’s here!
Fans who watched the leaked trailer last night will note the teaser revealed today matches the leak save for the new teaser having fully rendered special effects.
So what’s Spider-Man: No Way Home about?
Following the events of Spider-Man: Far From Home, in which his identity was exposed at the hands of Mysterio, Peter Parker’s life and his reputation is turned upside down. Seeking help from Doctor Strange to try and fix everything, things soon become much more dangerous and Parker must find what it really means to be Spider-Man.
Spider-Man: No Way Home is set for release exclusively in movie theaters on December 17. Check out the teaser below and be warned there are major spoilers contained within and below the trailer.
Clearly taking notes from Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, the next Spider-Man film will be delving into the multiverse. Doctor Strange is clearly meddling with reality–which seems dangerous but maybe he saw all possibilities and knows it’ll play out alright–all because Spider-Man wants to have a secret identity again.
Comics fans will note this plot is similar to the storyline “One More Day” which featured Mephisto helping Spider-Man remove from everyone’s memory that he is Peter Parker. Prepare yourselves for YouTubers who will claim Doctor Strange is Mephistop all along per their outcries during WandaVision and later Loki.
As the trailer reveals, this film is playing with the multiverse and is literally pulling Alfred Molina’s Doc Ock out of the classic Sam Raimi Spider-Man 2 and dropping him into the new Marvel/Sony universe. Somewhat poignantly, Raimi is also directing Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness which is set to release in March 2022. One can assume the events of this Spider-Man film will play heavily into the events of the second Doctor Strange film.
