Here’s hoping the Peter Tingle still works in the multiverse. Because judging by the first trailer for “Spider-Man: No Way Home”, Tom Holland‘s Spidey is going to need all the sense he can get as he faces familiar foes from across the Sacred Timeline and those other Spider-Man movies.
And so in “No Way Home”, he turns to Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) in search of a mystical fix. “When Mysterio revealed my identity, my entire life got screwed up,” Peter says. “I was wondering if you could make it so that he never did?”
Luckily for him, the good Doctor has just the spell to make the world forget that Peter Peter is Spider-Man — although that means M.J. (Zendaya), Ned (Jacob Batalon) and Aunt May (Marisa Tomei) won’t know either. Which will probably be a problem when Peter finds himself traversing time and space and coming face to face with Doc freaking Ock.
If you needed to see it to believe it, here it is: Alfred Molina is indeed reprising his role as Dr. Otto Octavius, aka Doc Ock, from the Tobey Maguire-starring “Spider-Man 2”. From that same trilogy, Willem Dafoe‘s Green Goblin is expected to pop up, as is Jamie Foxx‘s Electro (from the Andrew Garfield-starring “The Amazing Spider-Man 2”).
Former Spider-Men Maguire and Garfield are also rumoured to appear in “No Way Home”, though neither appears in this trailer and the latter recently told ET he’s “closed the book on” reprising his role as Spidey. “What people are talking about is a really cool idea,” Garfield said. “I haven’t received a phone call, but you know…”
“Spider-Man: No Way Home” swings into theaters on Dec. 17.
