The video features Cumberbatch and Holland bantering back and forth during a lengthy joke about swiping up on Instagram to watch the elusive trailer.
Although fans have long wondered why Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige and his team were waiting so long to release the trailer for the Phase 4 Marvel Cinematic Universe movie, it turns out Sony Pictures actually made the call. Walt Disney Studios marketing president Asad Ayaz recently spoke to The Hollywood Reporter:
“Sony is absolutely handling the marketing for Spider-Man. Kevin Feige and his team are closely partnering with the Sony team on those. So there is coordination in that sense. We also make sure we are aware of who is dropping what when. But we are not working together on the campaigns because it’s their film. They are handling it but there is a level of coordination to make sure that it’s a win-win for everybody.”
The official description of Spider-Man: No Way Home reads:
For the first time in the cinematic history of Spider-Man, our friendly neighborhood hero is unmasked and no longer able to separate his normal life from the high-stakes of being a Super Hero. When he asks for help from Doctor Strange the stakes become even more dangerous, forcing him to discover what it truly means to be Spider-Man.
In addition to Holland and Cumberbatch, No Way Home will star Zendaya reprising her role as MJ. Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire are also expected to return as their respective versions of Spider-Man.
