Last night, after months of anticipation, the Spider-Man: No Way Home trailer was finally released. In the three-minute video, the Sony and Marvel Studios co-produced film confirmed a fair amount of rumors about the film. Like that the Multiverse will be heavily involved and that villains from previous franchises would appear in it.
Following its release, Peter Parker himself Tom Holland posted on his Instagram account and praised the fans reactions. He also teased that this is “just the tip of the iceberg” of what’s to come.
“I’m at the airport. I’ve been flying for the last 10 hours, so I didn’t actually post the trailer. My brother, Harry, did, so I haven’t been able to the reactions and how excited everyone is [Laughs]. I’ve just landed, so I turned my phone on, and my phone has gone mental. The love and support you guys have shown for the film is so exciting. Honestly, that is just the tip of the iceberg.”
“You have no idea what else is to come,” Holland teased. “I’m so excited to share more with you guys and it feels so good. It feels so good to be back with Spider-Man, to be showing you trailers, to have films coming out…this is so exciting. I love you all. Thank you for your support, and enjoy the trailer!”
I’m sure one of the things that Holland is referring to is previous Spider-Man actors (Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield) possibly appearing in the film. Since last December, there have been multiple rumors that both would return to reprise their roles.
Another possibility is Matt Murdock (aka Daredevil). In January, ComicBook.com was first to report that Charlie Cox, who played the character on the Netflix series, would return to the role. Some fans actually think he was in the trailer. In the very beginning, when Parker is being interrogated, a man is seen throwing a stack of papers on the table. Many have speculated that this is none other than Cox’s Murdock.
Whatever the surprises are, I hope the studio can keep some of them hidden until its release (December 17th, 2021). While many, including myself, were blown away by the trailer, I did think some of the excitement was taken away by the leak from the previous night.
So what do you think Holland is referring to?
