As December inches closer, new glimpses of Spider-Man: No Way Home have begun to surface.
Reports of Alfred Molina’s involvement as the Sam Raimi trilogy’s Doctor Octopus have blown multiverse conversations wide-open, and rumored inclusions of everyone from Tobey Maguire to Andrew Garfield have fans begging for a trailer.
While footage from the film hasn't debuted, the first officially released batch of toy images have dropped.
SPIDEY ROCKS BLACK AND GOLD
Detailed looks at Spider-Man's new suit have been released ahead of December's Spider-Man: No Way Home.
Coming from the official Hot Toys Facebook page, a figure dedicated to Tom Holland's web-slinger highlights his upcoming black and gold attire.
The first image of the figure shows Spidey swinging through a familiar city landscape.
Tom Holland unmasks, showing fans a detailed look at Peter Parker's face.

Spidey shoots some blue webs, fused with those familiar sorcerer-like circles.
Complete with the blue circles on both his chest and webs, Spidey takes aim at an off-screen enemy in Times Square.
The complete layout for the Spider-Man black and gold Hot Toy showcases the various webbings, hands, eyes, and beyond.
WHO IS SPIDEY BATTLING?
Fans have known they were getting a black and gold Spidey suit for a couple of weeks now, but this highly detailed look at Peter Parker’s new threads provides insight as to when he might don them.
The Times Square background is a familiar sight to fans of The Amazing Spider-Man 2, as Andrew Garfield’s wall-crawler battled Jamie Foxx’s Electro in Manhattan’s famous central area. Not only is it Times Square from the real world, but it is infused with aqua-colored energy.
Fans have already compared this suit to the Spider-Man PS4 Anti-Ock suit, suggesting he could battle Molina's Doc Ock in it. With the setting and blue hues, Spidey could be facing off against Jamie Foxx's Electro in it as well.
A STRANGE CONNECTION
The most noteworthy reveal from these images is the Doctor Strange iconography.
Benedict Cumberbatch's Sorcerer Supreme has been confirmed to be appearing in December's No Way Home, but his role in the greater narrative has remained a mystery. Considering this Spidey suit is infused with Strange's magical circles, the good doctor might be gifting Peter Parker a new suit equipped to take on his multiversal enemies.
After all, Spidey is known to be gifted new suits from Avengers.
Beyond the suit rocking a sorcerer emblem, the webbing with familiar magic hints that this suit will go further than just a cool design. Strange might be gifting Spidey some of his magic within the web-shooters, giving Peter Parker more power than he's ever had before.
That said, if he's facing off against a multiversal Sinister Six, he's going to need it.
Spider-Man: No Way Home swings into theaters on December 17, 2021.
