Spider-Man: No Way Home Villains

Bringing together elements of both Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield's Spider-Man films and infusing them with what the MCU has to offer for the web-slinger, Spider-Man: No Way Home is the ultimate celebration of the character's tenure on the big screen. With a monumental opening weekend and praise across the board, the Multiversal adventure is pleasing fans worldwide.

The film's overwhelming success is already spurring fans to request more Spider-Man content from Marvel and Sony, in addition to potentially spurring on spinoff discussions behind-the-scenes if rumors are to be believed.

Much of No Way Home's acclaim has been directed towards its villains, with their returns being a major highlight of many fans' viewings. Getting all of Spider-Man's past foes was quite the task for the studios according to Sony producer Amy Pascal, who convinced the returning actors by promising their parts wouldn't be reduced to "cash-grab cameos."

Now, new artwork for the film's Multiversal miscreants has finally been released.

No Way Home Villains Receive Official Art

The official Marvel website revealed brand new artwork for the antagonists in Spider-Man: No Way Home, featured on the villains' character pages on the website.

First up is Willem Dafoe's Green Goblin, who is pictured in his second No Way Home look that cobbles together additional accessories on top of the classic armor from Sam Raimi's Spider-Man:

Alfred Molina's Doc-Ock doesn't look a day older than he did in Spider-Man 2, depicted in his art adorning his iconic metal arms:

Rounding out the Raimi trilogy villains is Thomas Haden Church's Sandman, who appears in full sand form in his return from Spider-Man 3:

The fourth piece of artwork highlights Electro's shocking glow-up, which gives Jamie Foxx's villain his classic starfish-shaped face emblem:

Finally, Rhys Ifans' Lizard gets a slightly updated look from his appearance in The Amazing Spider-Man.

Warning - the rest of this article contains spoilers for Spider-Man: No Way Home.

Much of the villains' appearances in No Way Home were shrouded in darkness, so the release of this promotional artwork is extremely welcome.

Fans can now examine the Green Goblin's new look, for example, in full detail, which shows just how battle-worn his second appearance truly is. Not only has Norman Osborn added extra purple plating to the iconic suit, but he has also bolted on metal pieces to keep the armor from falling apart. 

Electro's revamped costume can also be seen in proper lighting now, which shows all the additional wiring and tech that has gone into his new suit. Sandman can also be seen in all his grainy glory as he seemed unable or unwilling to change from this form in No Way Home. While the production reason for this was likely to facilitate Thomas Haden Church not being able to make it onto set, there has yet to be a solid in-universe explanation for his constant dusty appearance.

Now Marvel just needs to release a good look at that new Spider-Man costume from the final scene.

All five of these Multiversal menaces can be found in theaters, where Spider-Man: No Way Home is now playing.
