New ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ Trailer Has Tom Holland Facing Multiple Multiverse Villains

Sony Pictures

Sony has released the big official trailer for Spider-Man: No Way Home, the third Spidey-led film with Tom Holland slinging the webs.

One hell of a chapter coming up for Peter Parker, who’s been having a hard time since J. Jonah Jameson unveiled that he was, in fact, Spider-Man at the end of Homecoming. He decides to get Doctor Strange’s (Benedict Cumberbatch) help to cast a spell that makes everyone forget his superhero secret. Of course, everything goes wrong. He botches the spell, inadvertently causing a tear in their world that opens the door to the multiverse. Parker is soon facing the most powerful villains who’ve ever fought Spider-Man – in any universe.

“You’re not Peter Parker,” says a confused Dr. Otto Octavius/Doctor Octopus (Alfred Molina), the villain from 2004’s Spider-Man 2, which had Tobey Maguire as Spidey. Also returning: Max Dillon/Electro (Jamie Foxx), Norman Osborn/Green Goblin (Willem Dafoe), Flint Marko/Sandman (Thomas Haden Church), and Dr. Curtis Connors/Lizard (Rhys Ifans).

“They all die fighting Spider-Man,” explains Strange. “It’s their fate.” As the fate of the world, these villains, and his loved ones hang in the balance, Parker is soon faced with the hard truth: “I can’t save everyone.”

And then, a moment between Parker and MJ (Zendaya) that brings to mind the heartbreaking fall Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone) experienced in 2014’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2, with Andrew Garfield. Please, Holland, catch her quicker than Garfield did. Speaking of the previous Spider-Men, if Maguire and Garfield are indeed turning up in this one, Marvel and Sony sure seem determined to keep that confirmation on the down-low for as long as possible.

Homecoming and Far from Home director Jon Watts continues at the helm for this chapter, working from a screenplay by returning scribes Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers.

Also starring Jon Favreau, Jacob Batalon, Marisa Tomei, Benedict Wong, and Angourie Rice, among others, Spider-Man: No Way Home will be swinging into Australian cinemas on December 16th (a nice b-day present for this writer!) and U.S. cinemas on December 17th.
