Ahead of the official trailer launching tomorrow (Tuesday at around 5:30 p.m. Pacific Time), Sony Pictures has revealed the new Spider-Man: No Way Home poster, which features both Spider-Man and Doctor Strange! You can view the full poster by scrolling down.
Like the previous poster, the new poster includes Doc Ock and Green Goblin, in addition to Spider-Man and Doctor Strange. Not hinted as much this time around are Electro and Sandman.
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.
Opening in theaters on December 17, 2021, Spider-Man: No Way Home will bring back characters from previous Spider-Man movies, even ones that were not in the previous two Tom Holland movies.
Alfred Molina is reprising the role of Doctor Octopus from the 2004 movie Spider-Man 2, which saw him facing Tobey Maguire’s Peter Parker/Spider-Man. He played the role of Doc Ock to great acclaim and is generally considered one of the top villains in all the movies.
Molina joins Willem Dafoe, who is returning as Norman Osborn/Green Goblin, a role he played in the original Spider-Man trilogy directed by Sam Raimi.
Jamie Foxx is returning as Electro from 2014’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2, which starred Andrew Garfield as the wallcrawler. Thomas Haden Church played Sandman in Spider-Man 3, which opened in theaters in 2007.
Benedict Cumberbatch will return as Doctor Strange in the new Spider-Man movie as well, though he has appeared alongside Holland’s Spider-Man in previous Marvel Studios movies.
Spider-Man: No Way Home is being directed by Spider-Man: Homecoming and Spider-Man: Far From Home helmer Jon Watts. Cast members returning from those movies include Tom Holland, Zendaya, Marisa Tomei, Jon Favreau, and Jacob Batalon, with J.K. Simmons coming back as J. Jonah Jameson.
The movie was written by Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers based on the Marvel comic books by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko.
The producers are Kevin Feige and Amy Pascal. The executive producers include Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, JoAnn Perritano, Rachel O’Connor, Avi Arad, and Matt Tolmach.
Sony and Marvel Studios have worked together on two Spidey films, including Spider-Man: Homecoming and Spider-Man: Far From Home. The first film grossed $880.2 million worldwide, while the 2019 release earned an impressive $1.13 billion globally.
