Spider-Man: No Way Home first trailer shows up at CinemaCon
Spider-Man: No Way Home dropped its trailer and all we have – next to the satisfaction – are questions, because it looks like, the multiverse is a basic thing.
“Spider-Man” helped kick off this year’s pared-down CinemaCon Monday night, with Sony unveiling the first trailer for “Spider-Man: No Way Home” to a crowd of theater owners in Las Vegas. This year’s convention, visually lighter in attendance and featuring a subdued tone, comes amid unprecedented challenges for theaters. The “Spider-Man” trailer also arrives under unusual circumstances, as a day earlier, a version of the “No Way Home” trailer leaked online, leading to Sony issuing take-down notices.
Sony film boss Tom Rothman, in town from vacation on the East Coast and sporting facial hair, acknowledged the leak while introducing the trailer, saying, “It deserves to be seen in the high-quality finished form in which it was made.” The Sony Twitter account also acknowledged the leak, tweeting, “shout-out to the real ones who are watching the trailer for the first time right now.”
The clip sees Peter Parker face his most brutal foe to date — the past. After nearly a year of speculation, the trailer confirms the multiverse plot of “No Way Home,” which will bring Holland together with villains of previous “Spider-Man” cinematic franchises.
Although “Spider-Man: No Way Home” plot has been revealed almost nothing yet, and it’s not really clear from the trailer, but with the return of Alfred Molina‘s Doctor Octopus, we can be sure that several characters from previous Spider-Man universes are not part of the Marvel Universe will be paying tribute.
Jamie Foxx as Electro will also be making an appearance, as a leaked set photo reveals Kirsten Dunst will return as M.J., and there have been rumors of Willem Dafoe‘s Green Goblin making an appearance.
In the most recent Spidey sequel, Parker’s true identity was exposed over the film’s final moments. Now confronting exposure and serious consequences, high school student Parker’s life has been spun into chaos. “For the record, I never wanted to lie to you,” Holland tells costar Zendaya in the trailer. “But how do you tell somebody you are Spider-Man?”
Seeking a supernatural solution, Parker turns to Doctor Strange (Cumberbatch), looking for a spell that will undo the big reveal and set things as they were. Thanks to some trusty teen awkwardness, the magic unleashed plunges Parker and Strange into the multiverse and untold danger.
Zendaya will reprise her role as MJ – of course, we will see her first in the “Dune”, as Chani, the fremen girl. She also shot in Hungary with the crew -, Jacob Batalon is back as Ned Leeds, Marisa Tomei as Aunt May, Benedict Wong as Wong, and Jon Favreau as Happy Hogan. Jon Watts returns to direct his third installment in the Holland series.
Doctor Strange will play a very important role in the plot, and according to official information on the film, he will take over from Tony Stark in Peter‘s life, becoming a sort of mentor figure for him.
“Spider-Man: No Way Home” will be released on December 17, 2021, and this has now been confirmed by the trailer, which specifically states that the film will be released exclusively in cinemas.
