After Sony reportedly erased a leaked trailer for Spider-Man: No Way Home, it was shown to attendees at CinemaCon. The film is scheduled to be the big holiday release in cinemas on Dec 17.
Spider-Man helped kick off this year’s CinemaCon, with Sony revealing the first trailer for Spider-Man: No Way Home. The film has been highly anticipated with a number of interesting rumours circulating the internet.
This year’s convention in Las Vegas was met with a lighter audience and dim tone. This comes due to unprecedented challenges for theatres as they fight decreasing sales within the pandemic. The Spider-Man trailer was also revealed under odd circumstances, as a version of the trailer leaked online and spread all over Twitter. The action was taken as Sony began issuing take-down notices.
Sony film CEO Tom Rothman acknowledged the leak while introducing the trailer, saying, “It deserves to be seen in the high-quality finished form in which it was made.” The Sony Twitter account also acknowledged the leak, tweeting,
“shout-out to the real ones who are watching the trailer for the first time right now.”
Spider-Man: No Way Home stars Tom Holland and Zendaya dealing with the multiverse. As a result, the film will feature actors from previous Spider-Man film franchises. These include Alfred Molina, who played Doctor Octopus in Tobey Maguire’s Spider-Man 2, and Jamie Foxx, who played Electro in the Andrew Garfield-led The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Benedict Cumberbatch is also reprising his role as Doctor Strange along with more unknown characters yet to be revealed.
The story begins straight after the events of Spider-Man: Far From Home. Peter has been unmasked as Spider-Man and is facing scrutiny and criticism thanks to Mysterio’s trap. The aftermath of this trap shows Peter struggling in his daily life as he turns into “public enemy number 1”
Parker then turns to Doctor Strange and asks if there’s a spell that can somehow make everyone forget he’s Spider-Man. Despite Wong’s warnings, Doctor Strange casts the spell anyway. However, Peter’s constant doubt during the magical process causes it to go wrong. The tampering with space and time leads to bending buildings and flipping trains and ultimately, rips in the multiverse.
This leads to a number of consequences one of which being the return of Alfred Molina as Doctor Octavious from Sam Raimi’s Spider-man 2. The return of this villain and trailer confirms the multiverse rumours and opens up expectations and possibilities as we have never seen before.
Spider-Man: No Way Homecoming to theatres on December 17.
