While Spider-Man: No Way Home is slated for a highly-anticipated December release, fans have yet to see a teaser, trailer, or much of anything at all from Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios.
This has lead to not only frustration from the fans but also that of exhibitioners anxious to promote the film with some theaters resorting to displaying fan-made posters due to the lack of official marketing materials.
Despite the radio silence from Spidey's parent studios, fans do know that Benedict Cumberbatch's Doctor Strange, along with a rogue's gallery of villains from past Spidey films, is set to appear alongside Tom Holland in No Way Home.
Whether prior Spider-Men like Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield will join Holland to fight their former foes remains to be seen. However, what isn't a mystery is the number of Spidey 3 leaks and teases courtesy of the film's merchandise campaign which is, ironically, already in full swing.
DAILY BUGLE & MULTIVERSE IN SPIDER-MAN NO WAY HOME ARTWORK
A merchandise listing on Amazon shows official Spider-Man: No Way Home artwork that references the Daily Bugle, Peter Parker's new suit, and possibly the multiverse.
Behind Spidey is what appears to be either a Daily Bugle billboard or screen. The Daily Bugle is where Peter Parker worked as a photographer for J. Jonah Jameson in both the comics and in the original Spider-Man trilogy.
J.K. Simmons, who played Jameson in that trilogy, appeared as a version (or variant?) of himself in 2019's Spider-Man: Far From Home post-credits scene. An additional merchandise leak has already teased that Simmons could return as Jameson in the upcoming film.
Other merchandise leaks have already confirmed that Peter Parker will wear at least two new costumes in the film: an Integrated Suit and a Black and Gold Suit.
It's expected that his new Integration suit will be a modified/updated version of Peter's Iron Spider suit from both Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame.
Another piece of artwork shows sketches, equations, and blueprints for Parker's new suit and even includes the name "integrated suit."
Here's yet another view of that suit in action along with a straight-on view of his gold web-shooters.
Speaking of web-shooters, this artwork suggests that Peter did, in fact, upgrade them for his Integrated Suit and developed a new web fluid? Also, this list might be confirmation that audiences will see Parker's web- wings in action yet again in No Way Home.
It's also worth noting that his black and gold suit, while not included in this batch of artwork, is supposedly reversible with this Integrated Suit as suggested by a description for a No Way Home Halloween costume.
This blueprint sketch of Peter's new costume literally spells out what his Integrated suit is in that it reads: "Iron Spider Suit + Red and Black Suit."
This next piece shows the front of Spidey's suit which appears to be ripped and torn. This could be hinting at the fact that Peter sustains some substantial battle damage this time around.
The final piece shows Spidey against a broken, shattered backdrop which could be a nod towards the multiverse and the various pieces of the MCU's reality.
THE SPOILERY SPIDER-MAN MERCH STREAK CONTINUES
While Marvel fans are hungry for any shred of information about this film, most would prefer a teaser, poster, or trailer as opposed to a continuous stream of merchandise leaks.
Still, these leaks have given fans something to off of. For instance, the emphasis on Spidey's new suit (technically suits) indicates they could play an integral role in the film this time around.
In addition, the promo art showing Peter's sketches and notes could mean that he will continue to follow in Tony Stark's footsteps in designing his own suits, just he did in Spider-Man: No Way Home. Perhaps he will get to truly show his mental prowess coupled with Tony's tech?
Finally, it seems all but confirmed that J. Jonah Jameson and his Daily Bugle will have a strong presence in the film; and while the piece showing what could be the multiverse may seem like a stretch, it does resemble some promo material fans have seen for What If...? debuting August 11 on Disney+.
Perhaps Marvel's next series will have more to say on the all-but-confirmed multiversal nature of No Way Home?
Spider-Man: No Way Home is set to release in theaters on December 17, 2021.
