Spider-Man: No Way Home teaser

Following a leak on social media on Sunday, Marvel Studios has dropped a teaser trailer for Spider-Man: No Way Home, and it's all kinds of awesome.

From Doctor Octopus (Alfred Molina) to a cackling Green Goblin (Willem Dafoe), the multiverse, unleased in Loki, threatens to alter the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) status quo forever.

“It was wonderful,” Alfred Molina told Variety in April. “It was very interesting going back after 17 years to play the same role, given that in the intervening years, I now have two chins, a wattle, crow’s feet and a slightly dodgy lower back.”

There's no official confirmation regarding Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield reprising the role of Spider-Man alongside Tom Holland in the MCU. But I like fun surprises, especially at Christmas, don't you?

Holland's Spider-Man was memorably introduced in Captain America: Civil War and mentored by Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) in Spider-Man: Homecoming. Don't get me started on their respective goodbyes in Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame. Welp! However, in the wake of J. Jonah Jameson (J.K. Simmons) exposing Spider-Man's true identity in Spider-Man: Far From Home, Peter Parker goes in search of Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) to cast a memory-erasing spell with devastating consequences.

Spider-Man: No Way Home swings into cinemas on 17th December. It's the perfect holiday gift for all true believers (myself included). Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse 2 and Marvel Studios' Spider-Man: No Way Home debut first on Netflix for those who are still reluctant to venture into a cinema (due to the ongoing pandemic) in 2022.

As with Ghostbusters: Afterlife, Sony has used the Spider-Man: No Way Home trailer to promote PlayStation 5 (PS5) wireless controllers. Jarring but understandable marketing as Marvel's Spider-Man video game franchise is a console exclusive.
