When discussing the most anticipated movies of 2021, it would be negligent to leave out filmmaker Jon Watts’ “Spider-Man: No Way Home.” It has gone from being simply another Spider-Man (Tom Holland) adventure to probably the most talked-about and speculated-on Marvel Cinematic Universe film to date in only a few months. This was true before we saw anything from the film, but as the first trailer hit the internet, the anticipation skyrocketed.
MCU fans were left speechless after viewing the first “No Way Home” trailer, which included a pair of new, sleek Spider-Man outfits, the return of Alfred Molina as Dr. Otto Octavius, and some indicated multiverse antics. That’s not quite accurate, because only days after it was launched, they were hard at work lobbying Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures to release a sequel. The fans got their wish on November 16, 2021, and social media soon lost its collective mind once more.
The latest “No Way Home” clip obviously piqued the interest of Marvel fans, and they weren’t alone. The primary cast, which includes Jacob Batalon, Tom Holland, and Zendaya – had equally eager reactions upon checking it out.
The second trailer for “Spider-Man: No Way Home” expanded on the framework provided by the first, but it also found ways to boost the ante. We got a clearer look at returning villains including Green Goblin (Willem Dafoe), Electro (Jamie Foxx), and Sandman (Thomas Haden Church), who saw more of Spidey’s struggle on the bridge with Doc Ock, and even saw a preview of Zendaya’s MJ’s death. In essence, it did not disappoint in any way, and the cast seemed to concur.
Social media viewers were able to witness Tom Holland, Jacob Batalon, and Zendaya react to the new trailer in real-time through the official “Spider-Man: No Way Home” Twitter account. The trio joyfully laughed, expressing their interest in the CGI work, and each gave out their fair share of “oohs” and “aahs” throughout most of the film’s length. When it was ended, they were still in astonishment at what they had just witnessed. Batalon stated that “people are not ready” for what “No Way Home” has in store for them, and he is most likely correct.
“Spider-Man: No Way Home” will be released in theatres on December 17, 2021.
