'Spider-Man: No Way Home' confirms even more villainous returns in official trailer

Spider-Man: No Way Home arrives in theaters everywhere Friday, Dec. 17.

The multiverse spews forth even more of its contents in the official trailer for Spider-Man: No Way Home, which premiered during a special fan event in Los Angeles Tuesday evening.

Following on the heels of the teaser that dropped in late August — which had Alfred Molina's Doc Ock and a whiff of Willem Dafoe's Green Goblin — this new footage confirms the return of even more classic baddies like Electro (Jamie Foxx looking more like his comic book counterpart), Sandman (Thomas Haden Church), the Lizard (Rhys Ifans), and even the New Goblin (it's unclear if that's Harry Osborn or Ned Leeds riding the glider). Indeed "visitors from every universe" are teased as well, though somewhat more nebulously. That is to say Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield are still nowhere to be seen.

Nevertheless, this epic convergence of different cinematic realities from over the years has prompted returning director Jon Watts to half-jokingly refer to the highly-anticipated threequel as "Spider-Man: Endgame."

"Everything we do at Marvel is based on a small group of people sitting around a table going, 'Wouldn't it be cool if...?'" Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige said last month. "The multiverse was always a part of that because it's such a big part of the storytelling in the comics."

Watch the new trailer below:

Set in the immediate aftermath of 2019's Spider-Man: Far From Home, the film picks up with Peter Parker (Tom Holland) living life as a social pariah. The entire world now knows his secret identity and to make matters worse, the authorities think he murdered Mysterio (Jake Gyllenhaal) — thanks, in no small part, to the sensationalist journalism of J. Jonah Jameson (J.K. Simmons back in the role he made famous under Sam Raimi's tenure).

Wanting to return to his normal life, Peter heads to Bleecker Street and implores Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) to work his magic and make the world forget the truth about Spider-Man. Despite protestations from Wong (Benedict Wong), Strange agrees, but thanks to Peter's big mouth, the spell goes horribly wrong, destroying the very fabric of the multiverse.

"What people will be really surprised about is that it’s not fun, this film," Holland said last week. "It’s dark and it’s sad, and it’s going to be really affecting. You’re going to see characters that you love go through things that you would never wish for them to go through. And I was just really excited to kind of lean into that side of Peter Parker."
