After nearly a year’s worth of mind-blowing, the world finally has its hands on the first trailer for December’s Spider-Man: No Way Home from Marvel and Sony.

With a story following up from the shocking reveal of Peter Parker’s secret identity to the public in Spider-Man: Far From Home, this threequel is set to potentially be the biggest solo movie in MCU history. Not only will Peter be dealing with a world that knows he’s a superhero, but he will also have to deal with the ramifications of a powerful Doctor Strange spell along with the multiverse starting to tear apart.

The movie’s first trailer delivered moments that undoubtedly induced screams of joy worldwide, particularly with teases for both the Green Goblin and Doctor Octopus from Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man trilogy. It’s safe to say that hype for No Way Home’s release is well past a fever pitch now that the first 150 seconds of footage are available for the world to dissect.

Along with this thrilling trailer, fans now have an official plotline for the movie that just went public as well.



After the release of Spider-Man: No Way Home’s first full trailer, the movie’s official synopsis is now available to the public. The information came from Fandango's Erik Davis on Twitter:

"For the first time in the cinematic history of Spider-Man, our friendly neighborhood hero is unmasked and no longer able to separate his normal life from the high-stakes of being a Super Hero. When he asks for help from Doctor Strange the stakes become even more dangerous, forcing him to discover what it truly means to be Spider-Man."

The official cast list was also released, which reads as follows:

- Tom Holland

- Zendaya

- Benedict Cumberbatch

- Jon Favreau

- Jacob Batalon

- with Marisa Tomei


While the movie’s official synopsis is slightly vague, as they are usually, it does make it clear that Peter’s identity crisis will be a central part of this threequel.

The trailer showed plenty of footage of Benedict Cumberbatch’s Sorcerer Supreme working on the spell to make the world forget about Peter being Spider-Man. Additionally, some of his dialogue was quite impactful as he told the young hero how dangerous it is to try to live the double life he’s managed for most of his time in high school.

Jake Gyllenhaal’s Mysterio was also teased as crowds of people surrounded Peter and MJ, which gives the young man more than enough to deal with even before the multiversal plot points come into play. Throwing all of this stress onto a teenager will make for one of the most drama-filled movies in MCU, and the action is only going to be the icing on top of the cake.

As fans continue to dissect this trailer, excitement will only continue to build for arguably the biggest movie of the year.

Spider-Man: No Way Home is set to release in theaters on December 17, 2021.
