Spider-Man: No Way We Finally have a Trailer
On August 23rd at 10pm we MCU and Spidey fans finally received what we have been begging for: a teaser trailer.
Based on the trailer, Spider-Man: No Way Home seems to kick off right where Spider-Man: Far From Home left off. We see Peter on the run with MJ, being questioned by the police, and possibly even walking to or from court. In an attempt to rid himself of all these new troubles he's facing at the hand of the back-stabbing Mysterio, Peter seeks the help of Doctor Strange - who's much more relaxed than usual if I might add. He agrees to cast a spell for Peter (which was actually performed by Mephisto in the comics), against Wong's wishes, that will allow the world to forget that Peter Parker was ever Spider-Man. Per usual though, nothing really ever goes right for Peter and the spell becomes interrupted (his fault) and somehow effects the multiverse. From there, we see Peter getting himself into more trouble as he is doomed to face variants of villains from past Sony Spider-Man films. The teaser ends with an amazing "Hello Peter" from Doc Oc actor, Alfred Molina.
Being that this is the first real introduction to the film, not much more is known about the plot or the characters said to appear. Although there have been several toy releases and actors accidentally spoiling things - I think it's safe to say that we fans were on the right track with our predictions.
My first reaction to the trailer was overall joy. I loved being able to see Tom Holland in action again alongside his MCU counterparts. The introduction to the past villains was a real treat, and I can't wait to see them face off with the likes of the MCU. I love that with the incorporation of the multiverse that the MCU is finally able to right off these amazing actors and their characters as variants so they could return.
This film could be a Sinister Six film. We could most absolutely loose one of Peter's closest friends. The multiverse is something you do not want to mess with - we learned that from Loki. It's also fun to point out that after the release of Spider-Man: No Way Home in December the next MCU film to debut is Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness directed by none other than Sam Raimi which will premiere in March 2022.
Spider-Man may be facing a whole lot more than what we could have anticipated. Tom Holland has even ensured us on his instagram that there is more to be revealed. If Marvel has taught us anything about their "teaser trailers" is that they are just that: a tease. They only show us portions and snippets from the tinniest parts of the film, as they do well to keep most of their films a secret for the fans. I for one am completely satisfied with this trailer. If gives me just enough info and plot that I know exactly what I am getting myself into when I go to the theater, and it fills me with excitement knowing some variant forms of familiar faces are returning. We will just have to wait until December 17th to see the truth of Spidey's fate in Spider-Man: No Way Home, only in theaters.
