'Spider-Man: No Way Home' Brings the Multiverse to Peter Parker in First Trailer (Video)

Spider-Man and his amazing friends return to theaters Dec. 17

The film sees a grab bag of characters from Sony’s previous, non-MCU takes on “Spider-Man,” including Alfred Molina reprising his role as Doctor Octopus from Sam Raimi’s “Spider-Man 2” in 2004 and Jamie Foxx as Electro from 2014’s “The Amazing Spider-Man.”

They weren’t the first previous franchise stars to immigrate into the MCU — the most recent Spider-Man film, “Far From Home,” brought back another popular character from a previous iteration of the franchise, having J.K. Simmons reprise his role as J. Jonah Jameson from the original trilogy of films with Tobey Maguire, and it begs the question if we’ll see any other cameos from other films as well.

But at the very least, “Spider-Man: No Way Home” will reunite the franchise regulars, including Zendaya, Marisa Tomei, Jacob Batalon and Tony Revolori. Benedict Cumberbatch will also appear in the film as Doctor Strange as he steps Peter Parker through the complications of the multiverse, and director Jon Watts, who is behind both “Homecoming” and “Far From Home,” is directing “No Way Home.”

Sony has dated the third film for December 17, 2021. The trailer officially dropped this week at CinemaCon and on the web after at first leaking online over the weekend.
