Despite how flushed Marvel Studios is with content over the coming weeks, fans and crew alike are still deep in discussion over last week's Spider-Man: No Way Home trailer release. It only seems right that the teaser now has more views than any other trailer ever released, and the hype continues to build for the expansive multiversal threequel.

Giving fans the first look at a de-aged Alfred Molina as Doctor Octopus and teases for other villains like the Green Goblin and Electro, there is enough shown in three minutes to bring massive cheers while also keeping fans waiting for more. The footage didn't even confirm anything official for Tobey Maguire or Andrew Garfield's Spider-Men, although the expectation is that they will both be appearing in the film.

The MCU's top names have been vocally thrilled about all the support coming for the release, doing their best to build excitement for everything coming in the full movie. The trailer has even gotten so big that Hollywood stars from outside the MCU are sharing their thoughts on the matter.


Timothee Chalamet

Academy Award nominee Timothée Chalamet sat down for an interview with Deadline, in which he shared his excitement for the first trailer for Spider-Man: No Way Home during press rounds for his new movie, Dune.

Speaking on his Dune co-star Zendaya, Chalamet praised the MCU actress for "trailblazing her own path" and pointed out how she "happens to be in the most-watched trailer of the moment." He also admitted that he was one of the fans analyzing the trailer for clues and Easter eggs, and that he "cannot wait for that movie":

"And as I said before, this was before I’d seen Euphoria and Malcolm & Marie. She’s doing such incredible work and is just trailblazing her own path, and she’s so, so cool. She also happens to be in the most-watched trailer of the moment, too, for Spider-Man: No Way Home. I cannot wait for that movie, and I was there, by the way, with everybody else, clicking through the trailer frame by frame looking for clues [laughs]."


Timothée Chalamet is currently working toward one of the biggest releases of the year in Denis Villeneuve’s Dune, in which he works with multiple MCU stars, such as Josh Brolin, Dave Bautista, and the aforementioned Zendaya. While Chalamet himself hasn't found his way into the MCU yet, the young star already has a history with Marvel Studios.

Years ago, the accomplished youngster auditioned for the role of Spider-Man for the hero's introduction in Captain America: Civil War before Tom Holland took on the web-slinging duties. Chalamet admitted feeling like he blew his chance to play the icon, although he's since articulated that he's enjoyed Holland's work in his five MCU outings to date.

Chalamet certainly has plenty of opportunities to join the MCU with so many characters in need of actors, but for now he seems to love being a fan of the franchise as it brings new material nearly every week.

With Dune releasing about two months before Spider-Man: No Way Home, it will be interesting to see if he or any of the movie's other stars express more thoughts on the trailer or future promotional material for the threequel. Regardless, the trailer remains the talk of the entertainment community as the countdown to the movie's release begins.

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