After a lot of waiting and patience, the first two trailers for Spider-Man: No Way Home have now been released, offering a comprehensive look at the heroes, villains, and general story of the sequel.
With a botched spell set to unlock the doors to the Multiverse, Tom Holland's Peter Parker will need all the help he can get as he takes on returning Spider-Man villains, including Green Goblin, Doc Ock, Sandman, Lizard, and Electro.
As the release continues to move closer, the marketing campaign for No Way Home is ramping up with TV spots beginning to air around the world. In classic Marvel fashion, these spots have included new footage from the film with better looks at several characters and villains.
Spider-Man Spot Highlights Lizard's Return
A new Spider-Man: No Way Home TV spot recently began airing on Australian TV featuring Lizard, J. Jonah Jameson, and Peter Parker's fight with Doc Ock.
New footage from Spider-Man and Doc Ock's highway fight scene sees the wall-crawler in his Iron Spider suit kicking the six-armed villain with little effect.
Additionally, fans get a new angle on Spider-Man's face-off against Lizard, Electro, and Sandman which highlights the three Multiverse villains.
At several points during the spot, Happy Hogan can be seen leaving a voicemail for Peter in which he says, "Yeah Peter, this is Happy. Who are those guys, huh?"
After only a brief appearance in the second trailer, Rhys Ifans' Lizard from The Amazing Spider-Man can be seen letting out a loud roar.
Following which, J. Jonah Jameson asks a cameraman, "Was that a dinosaur?"

Is No Way Home Showing Too Much?
Spider-Man: No Way Home is undoubtedly surrounded by more anticipation, secrecy, and mystery than any MCU project since Avengers: Endgame. But with the Multiverse villains now revealed after the second trailer, are Sony and Marvel Studios showing too much?
After two trailers, most of the general plot has now been revealed, but it's unclear how much more there is to show. Fans can only hope Sony hasn't played all its cards too early and still has plenty more tricks up its sleeve for the final release.
Surprisingly, Sony opted to leave Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield's Spider-Men as well as Charlie Cox's Matt Murdock out of the recent trailer. Assuming they are indeed in the movie, including them in the trailer would have led to plenty more ticket sales, demonstrating the studio's commitment to maintaining the surprises.
With No Way Home being the first Multiverse-centric MCU project, the Spider-Man sequel is bound to have great significance for the entire universe going forward to 2022's Doctor Strange sequel and Peter Parker's cinematic future.
Spider-Man: No Way Home hits theaters on December 17, 2021.
