Spider-Man: No Way Home Official Trailer Breakdown

After so many months of build-up, the official Spider-Man: No Way Home trailer has arrived, and it looks absolutely incredible to say the least. Tom Holland’s Spider-Man has certainly been on a wild journey so far with his intense battle with Vulture during Spider-Man: Homecoming, his secret identity being outed by Mysterio and announced to the world thanks to J. Jonah Jameson and the Daily Bugle at the very end of Spider-Man: Far From Home but now it seems he faces his biggest threat so far. Take a look for yourself... SPIDER-MAN: NO WAY HOME - Official Trailer (HD) - Youtube.

The newest piece of Spidey promo sees Spider-Man confronting the aftermath of a botched Doctor Strange spell to hide his identity from the world after it had been previously outed. We see that the result of the broken spell is more Marvel multiversal madness with villains from both the Sam Raimi Spider-Man and Marc Webb Amazing Spider-Man eras appearing.

Like the first trailer, the returning Doctor Octopus – reprised by Alfred Molina – takes up the most screen time out of the villains however we get a full clear view of all the other villains as well. Willem Dafoe’s Green Goblin and Thomas Hayden Church’s Sandman return from the Sam Raimi Spider-Man movies with Jamie Foxx’s Electro and Rhys Ifan’s Lizard making their return from the Amazing Spider-Man movies. Although there are only 5 villains confirmed so far, there is still a possibility to complete a roster of the Sinister Six.

Considering we also have Michael Keaton’s Vulture in jail but still alive – although he does somehow show up in the upcoming Morbius – it might not be that much of a stretch to see the Spider-Man: No Way Home villains complete their sinister six roster. There has been no sign of this happening at all however this is the MCU so let the speculation continue…


Doctor Octopus

Like stated earlier, he takes the majority of screen time out of the villains as we see extended footage of his battle on the bridge with Spider-Man. Though recognising Spider-Man, he doesn’t realize that he isn’t in the Raimi-Verse of Spider-Man movies anymore. He even states to Tom Holland’s Spider-Man “you’re not Peter Parker” showing that he is confused as to why it is not Tobey Maguire’s Peter under the mask.

The first accidental leak for Spider-Man: No Way Home was Jamie Foxx announcing that he was back as Electro, but he stated that he wouldn’t be blue this time. He was indeed telling the truth as we get to see a full look at Max Dillon, aka Electro, from the Amazing Spider-Man universe’s new look and wow is it good! His electricity is now yellow, and they’ve managed to give his new look a fresh, practical new outfit with a little nod to his comic costume. We love it!

Green Goblin

We heard the sinister laugh, we saw the pumpkin bomb, but now we get to see that Willem Dafoe is indeed back as the Green Goblin. Appearing to still be wearing his old get-up, which still looks fantastic by the way, we see another shot of him on his Goblin Glider sporting a newer look with goggles and no helmet. Thanks to leaks and reliable insiders, we know that Norman Osborn will be getting a new Goblin costume at some point in the movie.

Sandman & Lizard

Sandman and Lizard receive the least screen time out of all the villains, but we were still ecstatic when they appeared. They are part of what seems to be the final battle however Doctor Strange states earlier in the trailer that all these villain “died fighting Spider-Man” but if you’ve seen Spider-Man 3, you know that Sandman made a pact with Tobey Maguire’s Spider-Man and didn’t die, and Lizard, from Andrew Garfield's Amazing Spider-Man also didn’t die in his movie so this line from Doctor Strange will need a lot of explaining.

Doctor Strange's Role

The Sorcerer Supreme gets more screen time during this trailer as we see him and Peter disagreeing on how to handle these “visitors”. They will be going head-to-head in a battle/chase as Spidey steals some sort of box from Doctor Strange. What is this box? It’s still not widely known however what we do know is that Doctor Strange will be imprisoning the multiversal villains in some sort of containment cell as seen from the blink-and-you’ll-miss-it shot of Lizard from the first trailer, multiple leaks online and Doctor Octopus talking to Peter, MJ and Ned whilst he is in the containment cell himself.

We can assume that Strange will be teaming up with Spidey or Spidey’s (more on this later) to defeat/send the villains back to their respective universes, as we see him accompanying Spider-Man on the Statue of Liberty stating “they’re starting to come through and I can’t stop them” whilst a multiversal effect is happening in the sky, similar to what we saw in the finale of Loki season one.

Black Suit

From the first trailer we new that Spidey was getting a couple of brand-new suits and we get to see more footage of his black suit. This suit is rumoured to be his suit from Spider-Man: Far From Home turned inside-out and the official trailer features an intriguing new gadget which One Take News exclusively reported allows Spider-Man to teleport the villains into the multiversal prison. Although said to be used for a short time, this will definitely come in handy when Peter is battling the villains.

Possibly the biggest rumour in Hollywood at the moment is Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield both returning as Spider-Man to help Tom Holland’s Spider-Man fend off the multiversal villains and although they aren’t shown in the trailer, there is a huge hint that they are indeed featuring. We have Electro, Sandman, Lizard and Tom Holland’s Spider-Man all in the same shot with Spidey leaping towards Sandman in the middle, yet the two other villains are travelling in opposite directions with Electro travelling up and Lizard leaping down. Why would they be doing this if Spider-Man is leaping towards them in the middle? There can only be one explanation for this, they’re fighting two other people, that being Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield.

And there is further proof of this from the Brazillian trailer in which the footage is slightly extended, and we see Lizard being hit by something that is invisible. It is clear to see that Tobey and Andrew were both edited out of this trailer to save the surprise for the movie and rightly so too. Imagine the feeling of nostalgia you will get when we eventually see the two Spider-Men returning to the big screen this Christmas.

The Death of Gwe... I Mean MJ

(via: Marvel Studios)

One of the closing shots of the trailer showed Zendaya’s MJ falling of the top of the Statue of Liberty with Tom Holland’s Spider-Man diving down after her. This is reminiscent of the scene of Gwen Stacey falling to her death in both the comics and The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Many are suggesting that Tom Holland may fail to catch MJ but she will be rescued by Andrew Garfield who will feel redemption after failing to save his love Gwen, in his universe.

Spider-Man: No Way Home could potentially be the most ambitious and most popular MCU movie of all time whilst simultaneously providing the biggest Marvel movie fan-service in history and we can't wait!

Spider-Man: No Way Home releases exclusively in cinema’s December 17th 2021.
