Spider-Man: No Way Home Releases First Official Trailer

The long-awaited trailer for Spider-Man: No Way Home has finally arrived.

After being leaked a day early, the Spider-Man: No Way Home trailer picks up story threads from the post-credits scenes of Spider-Man: Far From Home. More specifically, J. Jonah Jameson revealing to the world that Peter Parker and the wall-crawler are one and the same. Peter even faces some questioning by the police regarding the death of Mysterio, along with some long stares from his classmates at school.

Other familiar faces include Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange, Spidey mainstays MJ, Ned, Happy Hogan and Aunt May, along with the return of Alfred Molina's Doctor Octopus from 2004's Spider-Man 2. Fans even get a tease for the Green Goblin's return with some well-placed Goblin bombs.

The trailer appears to borrow heavily from the controversial Spider-Man comic book storyline "One More Day," when Peter Parker makes a deal with the devil, aka Mephisto, to make his identity a secret again once it becomes public knowledge. Instead of turning to the demonic villain, Tom Holland's Spidey pays a visit to the Sanctum Sanctorum to see Doctor Strange. After telling Stephen Strange his latest problems, he asks if there is a spell to put his secret identity back under wraps. This is apparently a very dangerous spell, considering Wong tells the Sorcerer Supreme not to go through with it.

Unfortunately, Peter begins asking for slight tweaks to not have MJ, Ned or Aunt May forget he's Spider-Man, causing a rift in the multiverse. "We tapped into the stability of space-time," Doctor Strange says. "The Multiverse is a concept about which we know very little about." The good doctor also warns that Spider-Man living two separate lives, with the longer he does it causing more harm to everyone around him.

As for Green Goblin and Doc Oct, their arrivals come near the very end of the No Way Hometrailer in a climactic scene on a busy highway. Peter is shown wearing his Iron Spider outfit from Avengers: Infinity War and Avenger: Endgame just as the Goblin bomb explodes and the metal tentacles of Doctor Octopus lift Alfred Molina into view.

Spider-Man: No Way Home is directed by Jon Watts and stars Tom Holland. The film swings into theaters on Dec. 17.
