The trailer sees Peter grappling with the fallout of 2019's Spider-Man: Far From Home, in which the world discovered his secret Spidey identity. He turns to Doctor Strange for a spell that'll wipe everyone's memories. No, it doesn't go to plan, and a multiverse of madness is unleashed.
"We tampered with the stability of space-time," Doctor Strange tells Peter. "The multiverse is a concept about which we know frighteningly little." They should probably have a chat with Loki, who appears to have set the multiverse in motion in the recent Disney Plus series.
The trailer shows Peter experiencing the astral plane, as well as trippy sorcery that sees whole cities sink into the ground. Oh, and how did Otto Octavius, aka Doc Ock, return from [spoiler] sacrificing himself to be killed by his own mechanical tentacles at the end of Spider-Man 2? At 2:28, we also see a spherical green bomb that looks a lot like those used by the evil Green Goblin in Maguire's first Spider-Man film back in 2002.
After 2017's Homecoming and 2019's Far From Home, the third outing in the latest Spider-Man series has been heavily rumored to see a crossover with previous movie versions of
friendly neighborhood wall-crawler.
The third Marvel Cinematic Universe Spider-Man adventure again stars Tom Holland as Peter Parker, with Zendaya, Marisa Tomei and Jacob Batalon at his side. Director Jon Watts is behind the cameras again. No Way Home hits theaters Dec. 17.
