Doc, your aim’s worse than your haircut!

More on Spider-Man: No Way Home

Without the help of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, like Captain America, Black Panther Iron Man, or even Captain Marvel, Peter turns to Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch). Spider-Man and Doctor Strange accidentally open a rift in the Multiverse when a spell goes wrong in the Sanctum Sanctorum, unleashing a deadly batch of supervillains, like Alfred Molina’s Doctor Octopus from previous Spider-Man franchises.

The trailer blew away fans’ expectations after giving a sneak peek of Electro’s yellow lightning bolts, changing the color of Jaime Foxx’s electro’s blue electricity in Andrew Garfield’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014) to a comic-accurate yellow.

You can watch the official trailer below:

The Marvel collection is growing with each new superhero film and series on Disney+. Marvel films are expanding after the events of Loki and Marvel characters are being introduced to variants of each character.

Marvel fans, mark your calendars for Spider-Man: No Way Home‘s theatrical debut on December 17, 2021.
