Tom Holland and Benedict Cumberbatch reprise their roles as Spider-Man and Dr Strange in the movie’s trailer, which also hints at the return of other characters from the past
Sony Pictures released the official trailer for Tom Holland’s third solo Spider-Man movie, Spider-Man: No Way Home, on Monday, a day after it was leaked on social media. The production house had been working overnight to clear the content off the internet as fans went into a frenzy, with the movie’s trailer featuring Spiderman and Dr. Strange also gave a first look at the returning supervillain Doctor Octopus aka Doc Ock.
The trailer starts off where Spiderman: Far From Home left off. With Spiderman’s identity revealed to the world, Peter Parker is living a hard life, fending off news reports to official investigations. After Parker consults Dr Strange for a solution to his problems, the latter, played by Benedict Cumberbatch, decides to use a spell.
When the spell tampers with space and time, reality falls through. While the trailer does well to not reveal much about the plot itself, it does reveal the return of some major characters. One of which is Doc Ock played by Alfred Molina. The villain is seen to face off with the wall crawler.
While the trailer mainly focuses on what follows the events of the last Spider-Man movie and the incidents that set up this one, the trailer also leaves a long list of hints of heroes and villains that might make an appearance in the highly-anticipated movie, which is set for a December 2021 theatrical release.
Directed by Jon Watts, Spider-Man: No Way Home will see Tom Holland return as Peter Parker, a role he has taken up since Captain America: Civil War. The movie will also feature Zendaya, Jacob Batalon, Marisa Tomei, Benedict Cumberbatch, Jon Favreau and others.
