While fans have many questions about Sony and Marvel's highly-anticipated Spider-Man: No Way Home, the seeming lack of marketing from both studios has to be one of the biggest.

Despite spoilery admissions from the cast, various leaks and rumors, and a Multiversal plot, for months, Sony and Marvel mostly remained silent on what the Tom Holland-led threequel has in store, which only contributed to the fan base's curiosity. 

Thankfully, that all appears to be changing as marketing for Spider-Man: No Way Home has finally ramped up ahead of the film's December 17, 2021 release.

Following the recent debut of No Way Home's first posterSony and Marvel Studios announced a fan event in L.A. for the reveal of the film's long-awaited second trailer, but just ahead of its premiere, Marvel and Sony had something else to share.

Out ahead of No Way Home's second trailer, Sony and Marvel have released another poster for the film featuring not only Tom Holland's Spidey but also Benedict Cumberbatch's Doctor Strange

Marvel shared the new poster in a tweet that read:

"Trailer Tomorrow. #SpiderManNoWayHome is exclusively in movie theaters December 17."

In response to the new poster's reveal, Spider-Man's own Tom Holland shared the following reaction on Instagram:

"The multiverse is real!"

Holland wasn't the only member of the Marvel team to react on social media. Marvel Studios Head of Visual Development, Ryan Meinerding, posted a simple "!!!" to convey his excitement. 

The new poster can be seen below:

What Marvel's Multiverse Means for Holland's Spidey

This isn't the first time Holland has reacted to his film's marketing campaign. After the film's first poster dropped online, the actor responded with a promising message to fans which read, "This movie is gonna blow your minds. Trust me !"

Also, in recent weeks, Holland has been openly reflecting on his run as the web-slinger thus far, discussing his character's personal growth and his uncertain future within the MCU moving forward.

Now that Marvel has embraced the Multiverse, it's impossible to predict the trajectory of its current characters; but Holland's Spider-Man faces an additional uncertainty as Marvel shares the character with Sony, who happens to be building its own Spider-Man universe with films like Venom and Morbius

Spider-Man fans should expect to hear more from Holland about the MCU Multiverse - and possibly the Sony universe -  in the coming weeks as No Way Home's promotional campaign gets underway. 

Spider-Man: No Way Home swings into theaters on December 17, 2021.
