Spider-Man: No Way Home – Trailer Talk
With only two months until the release of the next Spiderman film, ‘No Way Home’, it was only a matter of time until Marvel decided to release the film’s first trailer. With rumours flying high that the previous two Spidey actors would return, as well as other beloved characters, plus a leak that occurred the day before, Marvel Studios finally gave in to the pressure and released the 3-minute teaser online.
The new film follows Peter Parker (Tom Holland) as he is forced to deal with the fact that everyone knows he’s Spiderman, after Mysterio revealed this at the end of ‘Far From Home’. Under the pressure, he asks Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) to create a spell that would enable everyone to forget about Spiderman’s true identity. However, the spell goes wrong and opens up the multiverse.
Firstly, it makes sense that Peter Parker’s backtracking on the spell would be the reason for the multiverse opening up. While he is intelligent, academically, he is not always smart: he’s awkward, nervous and isn’t very confident in a lot of his decision-making, and that’s the case here. But I also understand why he wants everyone to forget the events of ‘Far From Home’. His life is a complete mess now and even the people who know his identity found out by accident. He never meant for anyone to find out he was Spiderman so I can understand why the spell was asked for.
But the most exciting aspect of the trailer can be summed up by the introduction of two objects: a metal octopus-like tendril, and an orange pumpkin bomb. That’s right: the trailer officially confirms the return of Willem Dafoe’s Green Goblin and Alfred Molina’s Dr Octopus! Whether their appearances retcon Sam Raimi’s trilogy or not, we’ll have to wait and see. But their appearances might also confirm Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield as their versions of the web slinger.
The first trailer is finally here, and it looks fantastic. It’s going in a direction that makes sense and is a great way to introduce the opening of the multiverse, which is what the next phase of the MCU will focus on. There’s only two months till the film’s release and I cannot wait!
