Here's a sinister breakdown of what we saw in the latest Spider-Man: No Way Home trailer
There are a lot of villains, and they all really don’t like Spider-Man...any Spider-Man
After much internet hullabaloo, we finally have a new Spider-Man: No Way Home trailer. And while we didn’t see Tobey Maguire or Andrew Garfield, we did see a whole bunch of villains and some teases as to what will go down in the upcoming MCU movie.
“We started getting some visitors,” Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) tells poor Peter Parker (Tom Holland). We got to meet some of those visitors in the trailer and see a bit more of those we already knew about.
Let’s start with Doc Ock (Alfred Molina). We already knew Dr. Otto Gunther Octavius was in the movie and that he came from a universe where Peter Parker looked like Tobey Maguire. In the trailer, we see Ock finding out that this world has a different Peter and maybe...maybe working with Peter, MJ (Zendaya), and Ned (Jacob Batalon).
Peter, in fact, might be working to protect those villains while Doctor Strange wants to kill them all, as is their fate in the other universes.
As for the other classic Spider-Man villains, we also got glimpses of the Green Goblin, and while we didn’t see Willem Dafoe in the flesh, we did hear his voice saying things like, “Peter, you’re struggling to have everything you want while the world tries to make you choose.” And if one Green Goblin wasn't enough for you...it looks like there are two Green Goblins in the trailer — one unmasked and one masked.
And things got even more sinister from there. We got a couple of shots of Jamie Foxx as Electro and a CGI-version of Thomas Haden Church as Sandman. Rhys Ifans' Lizard is also in the fray being menacingly lizard-like.
While we didn’t see the alternative Spider-Men the internet was clamoring for, we did see one dark version of Spider-Man with the ability to do magic like Doctor Strange. But who knows? Some are also claiming that those other Spideys we're dying to see were digitally removed from the trailer, such as in the shot above. That is all pure speculation at this point, however.
There are other tidbits in the trailer that are sure to keep the internet buzzing with excitement. There’s a quick shot of what appears to be the Statue of Liberty getting its own huge Captain America shield, and later on, we see that shield crash in the fight shown in the photo above. At the very end of the clip, we also have Doctor Strange looking worried at said Statue of Liberty and saying, “They’re coming through, and I can’t stop them.”
Who can’t Doctor Strange stop? Is it those aforementioned villains? Or is it other Spideys? Or both? The trailer left things just unclear enough that we’ll have to wait until Spider-Man: No Way Home premieres in theaters on Friday, Dec. 17.
