With all the secrecy surrounding Spider-Man: No Way Home, Sony and Marvel Studios seem intent on maintaining the mystery even with under two months until release. After the first trailer was released to record-breaking numbers, fans are continuing to speculate when a second will hit the web - pun intended.

As speculation continues on whether Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire will reprise their Spider-Man roles, Sony has continued to tease the returning villains from both past universes. Alfred Molina's Doc Ock, Jamie Foxx's Electro, and Willem Dafoe's Green Goblin will all reportedly return alongside the rumored Lizard, Sandman, and Rhino to form a multiversal Sinister Six. 

While the first trailer was packed with teases towards various returning villains, Alfred Molina's six-armed villain was the only one to take the spotlight with his already iconic "Hello Peter" moment, which will seemingly be followed by an epic highway chase.

Empire released a new still from Spider-Man: No Way Home that sees Alfred Molina's Doc Ock chasing and throwing a car at Tom Holland's hero.

The newly-released still likely follows Alfred Molina's shocking "Hello Peter" moment in No Way Home's first trailer.

A second new image sees a maskless Peter Parker in his Far From Home suit and ready for a fight, with some injuries seemingly already sustained.

So It Wasn't Tobey Maguire After All

Up until now, many had speculated the footage shown in the trailer was intentionally misleading and Doc Ock's "Hello Peter" line was aimed towards Tobey Maguire's Spider-Man. However, Empire's latest still seems to confirm the highway encounter will come prior to their rumored arrival, as Alfred Molina's villain chases Holland's wallcrawler. 

While past Spider-Man films have typically included a somewhat limited number of heroic suits, No Way Home seems poised to involve quite the expansive wardrobe. Within these two images alone, fans can see the return of Avengers: Infinity War's Iron Spider suit and Far From Home's black and red Bosco design.

On top of that, previous toys and promotional art have also confirmed the inclusion of an Integrated suit and a Black-and-Gold outfit - which may be purpose-built to take on Jamie Foxx's shocking villain Electro.

As the second still sees Holland's hero wearing his previous suit, it's possible his fight-ready pose may come from early in the film before new suits are introduced throughout the multiverse blockbuster.

Much of No Way Home's story remains shrouded in mystery still, although more should become clear whenever the second trailer eventually arrives. As of now, a date for the next look has yet to be revealed, but with under two months to go until Spider-Man's latest adventure arrives, it ought to be somewhat soon.

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