Electro Spider-Man: No Way Home

Remember when fans went months with little to no news or footage from Spider-Man: No Way Home? Well, it seems that those days are over. 

Now that Marvel's Eternals has made its theatrical debut, and No Way Home's December 17, 2021 release is just weeks away, marketing is finally in full swing for the MCU's Spider-Man threequel that not only embraces the multiverse but stars villains from past Spidey franchises and potentially Tom Holland and Andrew Garfield as well. 

In the days following the release of the film's long-awaited second trailer, Sony and Marvel have dropped new TV spots that contain new information and even more footage from the film.

New Spider-Man: No Way Home Footage Revealed

A new TV spot featuring new footage for Spider-Man: No Way Home revealed more of the George Washington Bridge confrontation between Alfred Molina's Doc Ock and Tom Holland's Peter Parker.

While fans know from the first trailer that Ock says, "Hello, Peter" upon seeing Holland's Spidey in his Iron Spider suit, this new footage has Ock admitting, "You're not Peter Parker" before Holland responds with "I'm so confused right now."

In addition to Doc Ock, the spot also offers a quick new look at Jamie Foxx's Electro and his MCU makeover, as well as the fact that his power seems to be emanating from a central point in his chest.

Electro's new image is followed by a shot of the Lizard, similar to another new TV spot that revealed one of the best views of The Amazing Spider-Man's central villain yet.

After this villain montage, Peter is shown asking, "The multiverse is real?" before a brief shot of the Statue of Liberty with the Captain America shield set-piece is revealed surrounded by a cloud of swirling sand from Sandman.

While a Doctor Strange voiceover explains the dangers these multiversal villains present, fans get yet another new look at Electro with sparks seemingly emanating from his eyes and his bolts of electricity possibly coming from an Iron Man-esque arc reactor.

The scenes that follow highlight Doctor Strange and Peter's conflict in the mirror dimension, echoing similar dialogue audiences have heard from the first two trailers; but at one point, Peter shouts that "There must be another way!"

Electro's No Way Home Iron Man Arc Reactor?

Spider-Man: No Way Home's second trailer, coupled with these new TV spots, is exactly what fans have been waiting for throughout most of 2021 and what will best serve the film leading up to its debut.

Even though fans are getting new footage, so far, they have only highlighted or explained more of what audiences have already seen without giving away too many plot points or surprises. 

An example of this, and one of the biggest takeaways from this particular TV spot, is Ock realizing that Holland's Parker isn't the Peter Parker from his universe and that, at this point, the MCU's Spidey doesn't know the full extent of what's happened. 

Another reveal includes the two close-ups of Foxx's Electro, whose new design and color palette remains one of the film's biggest mysteries. Even though Ock, Green Goblin, and the Lizard appear relatively the same as they did in their original films, Electro's yellow bolts coupled with what appears to be lineman's gear, looks nothing like he did in The Amazing Spider-Man 2

Still, the fact that he appears to be wearing an Iron Man arc reactor on his chest is the best lead fans have had yet, and the answer may be connected to why Ock's metal tentacles are capable of absorbing Stark nanotech

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