The official trailer of Spider-Man: No Way Home finally dropped today. The trailer was reportedly leaked online and Sony had to work overtime to clear it off the internet. Fans of the wall-crawler were thrown into a frenzy after the release of the trailer as it promised another great Spider-Man movie and also brought back a few characters from the past. 

While the trailer mainly focuses on what follows the events of the last Spider-Man movie, where Spider-Man’s identity was revealed to the world and the incidents that follow, the trailer also leaves hints at a long list of heroes and villains who just might make an appearance in the movie. Here is a list of characters that we possibly could see in Spider-Man: No Way Home.



That was an obvious one, but it has to be said. With the movie following the multiverse storyline that seems to have captured the attention of the fans, anything is possible. Tom Holland will return as Peter Parker, who now the whole world knows is Spider-Man. While he will have to survive a world of press, attention and possible hate, Peter is also seen to have captured the attention of the authorities. 

While Tom Holland’s Peter Parker is an obvious call, there have always been rumours that Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield would also make an appearance as Peter Parker in the movie. While the former was the original Spider-Man in Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man trilogy, the latter played Peter Parker in the Amazing Spider-Man movies. We have no conclusive evidence about them making an appearance in the movie, but keep your eyes open, just in case. 

Doctor Strange


Doctor Strange and Spider-Man will be united once again, after their adventures in Avengers: Infinity War. Benedict Cumberbatch returns as the spell-casting hero as he tries to help Peter with the situation he has found himself in. Doctor Strange is another fan favourite character in the MCU and while we do not know just how long he will be in the movie, it is clear from the trailer that he will play a very important role in the movie. 

Doc Ock


Dr. Otto Octavius aka Doctor Octopus aka Doc Ock is a villain in Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man trilogy who fans have loved to hate. Played by Alfred Molina, Doc Ock was a scientist who became a victim to one of his inventions. Sporting four strong and durable appendages, the villain is a known foe of the wall-crawler. With Alfred Molina reprising his role as the villain in the upcoming movie, he is still introduced and established in the trailer. Doc Ock is one among many reasons fans are celebrating the trailer that dropped today.

Green Goblin


Just like Doc Ock, Green Goblin played by Willem Dafoe is a character synonymous with Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man trilogy. Considered to be Spider-Man’s archenemy, Green Goblin was originally Norman Osbourne, the head of Oscorp. In the trailer, which shows a world open to other multiverses, we get to see the Green Goblin’s infamous Pumpkin Bombs. While it does not show Green Goblin in the flesh, the Pumpkin Bombs could mean the return of the supervillain. 



Maxwell Dillon aka Electro was first introduced on screen in The Amazing Spider-Man 2. With Jamie Foxx playing the live electric capacitor, the movie came out with high hopes, but could not live up to it. In the trailer of Spider-Man: No Way Home, a little after the midway point, a large burst of what looks like electricity, could hint at Electro’s return. While his lightning was blue in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, a return for Jamie Foxx is expected by fans because the actor had shared a look of Electro on his Instagram, which he later deleted. This incident happened when reports of him returning were making the rounds.



Matt Murdock aka Daredevil is a visually-impaired martial arts expert who has other heightened senses. The fan favourite superhero is also a successful lawyer. In a shot from the trailer, Peter can be seen poring over files in a room, where he is accompanied by a man in a white shirt and tie, hinting at Charlie Cox’s Matt Murdock. Daredevil is another character who has been rumored but never officially announced to be part of the upcoming movie. Also, Electro and Daredevil have had some notable conflicts with each other in the comics.
