‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ Trailer Unleashes a Multiverse of Villains What’s your Reaction? +1 0 +1 0 +1 0 +1 0 +1 0 Facebook Twitter Email Tom Holland surprised fans at a launch event in Sherman Oaks, Calif., where the mood was electric. Spider-Man: No Way Home opened up a multiverse of villains with its second trailer, which was unveiled during a live event in Sherman Oaks, Calif. on Tuesday and featured a surprise Q&A with star Tom Holland. The trailer showed off villains such as Doctor Octopus, Electro, Sandman, the Green Goblin and the Lizard — bringing together more antagonists than any Spider-Man film before. Spidey senses were tingling at the trailer launch event at the Regal Sherman Oaks, with fans singing “Sunflower,” the hit song from Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, and others doing the infamous dance performed by Tobey Maguire in Spider-Man 3 that has become one of the more meme-able moments from his Spidey trilogy. No Way Home stars Holland as Peter Parker/Spider-Man and Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange. It picks up after the events of Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019), which ended with the world learning Spider-Man’s secret identity and with the villain Mysterio (Jake Gyllenhaal) framing him for murder. No Way Home sees Peter Parker ask Doctor Strange to cast a spell to make the world forget his secret identity, only to see things go awry and open a door to the multiverse. That paves the way for appearances from villains from previous Spider-Man films, including Doctor Octopus (Alfred Molina), Electro (Jamie Foxx) and The Green Goblin (Willem Dafoe), thus tying together the installments that starred Toby Maguire (2002-07) and Andrew Garfield (2012-14). Holland recalled meeting Dafoe, who reprises his role from Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man (2002). To preserve secrecy, the villain actors would walk around set with cloaks covering their costumes. “These guys are very excited to be coming back and bringing these roles back to life. They came to set a week before they started shooting to see what it was like,” said Holland, adding of meeting Dafoe,”I just bumped into this guy in a cloak. I was like, ‘Watch out mate.’ He took his hood off and I almost got really scared. ‘Oh shit, the Goblin is here.’ But he was lovely. He was really wonderful and a real joy to work with.” Related Videos Related Videos Tweets by SpiderManMovie Leave a Reply Cancel replyYou must be logged in to post a comment.
