In just a few short days, the MCU fandom will have the opportunity to take in the movie that’s made headlines since before the official start of Phase 4 - Spider-Man: No Way Home. With arguably the most jam-packed story in any Marvel Studios solo movie to date just over the horizon, the threequel’s promotional tour is moving full speed ahead to make sure fans are ready for all of the madness on the way.
Thus far, No Way Home's promotional tour has centered on two internet-breaking trailers that tease two unique and interweaving stories coming in this epic threequel. The movie's early stages will follow on from Spider-Man: Far From Home's shocking ending with Peter Parker's identity crisis before moving into the Multiversal antics that are sending hype through the proverbial roof.
Reports have teased that No Way Home won't utilize any sort of time gap from its predecessor by starting at the very moment J. Jonah Jameson reveals to the world that Peter Parker is Spider-Man. Now, that news has been confirmed thanks to the first official clip from the MCU's newest movie going live.
Spider-Man: No Way Home's First Official Clip
The first officially-released clip from Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures' Spider-Man: No Way Home debuted on Late Night with Seth Meyers.
The footage depicts Peter Parker and MJ in the chaotic first moments following Spider-Man: Far From Home's shocking post-credits scene, which revealed through The Daily Bugle's J. Jonah Jameson that "Spider-Man is, in fact, Peter Parker."
Spider-Man then jumps off the telephone pole down to MJ to protect her from an incoming wave of civilians, who bombard her with questions about the Mysterio situation.
The couple swings off to the Queensboro Bridge before Peter takes a call from Ned. After this, the only thing said by any of the three main characters is some variation of "Dude!"
The full 43-second clip can be watched below:
"Spider-Man is, in fact Peter Parker!"
Although it's been clear for a long time, Spider-Man: No Way Home is now confirmed to kick off from the exact moment Phase 3 ended nearly two and a half years ago. Even more impressively, Marvel and Sony found a way to release a scene that really didn't give away any spoilers at all, considering how much is already known about the movie.
More than half of the clip that debuted has already come to light through previous trailers and TV spots, even the moment at the end when Ned is on the phone with Peter as they freak out about what's happening. While it's a mystery when exactly the rest of the footage from the trailers will come into play, fans now know exactly what to expect when this blockbuster threequel arrives in full.
Spider-Man: No Way Home will swing into theaters on December 17, 2021.
