Spider-Man: No Way Home picks up in the aftermath of that devastating reveal. A teaser trailer leaked in August, prompting Sony to launch it formally the subsequent day. We noticed a annoyed Peter hunt down Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) for assist, asking if there was any option to restore his secret id. Our previous pal Wong (Benedict Wong) warned Strange to not solid the spell that would grant Peter’s request. But since when has Strange ever listened to Wong? Naturally, the spell goes haywire, inflicting other dimensions to crash into their actuality.

We acquired hints that Electro (Jamie Foxx), from 2014’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2, will make an look, in addition to Willem Dafoe’s Green Goblin from 2002’s Spider-Man and Alfred Molina’s Otto Octavius, aka Doctor Octopus (affectionately often called Doc Ock).

Doc Ock will get nearly all of display screen time right here, shortly realizing that this Peter Parker is not the identical one from his universe. And the identify Dr. Otto Octavius does not have fairly the chilling impact he anticipated on Peter, MJ, and Ned (Jacob Batalon), who can not help guffawing after they hear it. (“Wait, no, seriously, what’s your actual name?”) Kids immediately haven’t any respect. Their mission this time round is to ship the intruders again to their very own worlds, or as Strange places it, “Scooby-Doo this crap!”

Of course, technically Peter is combating ghosts, since all these villains died combating Spider-Man. And Peter appears to be having bother with that harsh actuality. “You’re struggling to have everything you want while the world tries to make you choose,” we hear the Green Goblin say. And Peter does appear to appreciate that not solely is the current mess his fault (his and Strange’s), he in all probability cannot save everybody. But can he save MJ as she falls from a staggering top? Or are we going to get a Gwen Stacy-style tragedy?
