The teaser trailer for Spider-Man: No Way Home dropped yesterday and it’s pretty good though I wonder if I would feel the same about if it weren’t for Tom Holland, who’s pretty charismatic, and Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) who’s the most interesting character in the trailer (which is notable because while I enjoyed his 2016 movie it was the relatively short amount of time he appeared in Avengers: Infinity War (2018) that really sealed the deal for me.
Marvel is apparently going all in on the idea of a multiverse, and if the trailer is any indicator they’re bringing back not only the but the Green Goblin (Willem Defoe), Doctor Octopus (Alfred Molina) and who knows who else.
And speaking of the multiverse, there’s a scene when Spider-Man and Doctor Strange on standing on a moving train, and Strange appears to be attempting to capture Spidey.
Why would he be doing that – especially when he did some major magicks for him earlier – if it were the Spider-Man that he knew?
And while there’s no way to know if the scene is in the trailer to distract/mislead, it does create some interesting supposition based on the idea of an multiverse that the movie seems to be trading in.
And speaking of supposition, Jon Watts is supposedly moving on to direct Fantastic Four next so what does that mean for Spider-Man (and it goes without saying, the deal Marvel Studios has with Sony Pictures)?
