On Nov. 16, Marvel released the official “Spider-Man: No Way Home” trailer, the last movie in Tom Holland’s Spider-Man trilogy. 

Fans have predicted that original Spider-Man Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield will also make a surprise appearance as a result of Dr. Strange’s reality warping spell.

If you forgot what happened in “Spider-Man: Far From Home”, here’s the situation:

Mysterio released a video accusing Spider-Man of killing him and released his identity as Peter Parker. In “Spider-Man: No Way Home”, Peter has to figure out a way to make everyone forget. The obvious answer is to go to Dr. Strange.

With the teaser and official trailers, it’s easy to figure out the overall plot. 

Strange cast the spell, but Peter’s hesitance makes it go wrong, meaning everyone, except a few, forgot Spider-Man’s identity. The malfunction in the spell causes some sort of tear in the universe, with others beginning to leak through. Ergo: new Spider-Villains come through.

Because of the break in the universe, Peter has to fight other Spider-Man villains not in his universe. In the trailer, villains Doc Ock, Green Goblin, Sandman, the Lizard, and Electro are seen, all of which were originally a part of other Spider-Men universes. Those are five confirmed villains in the movie so far. Maybe one more will round it out to the Sinister Six.

This movie expands on the topic of the multiverse, which is satisfying to see as there’s a lot of potential storylines exploring other universes. It opens up the possibility of seeing other non-Peter Parker Spider-People, such as Gwen Stacy or Miles Morales. 

With overlapping lines from the characters and intense fight scenes, the trailer grabbed my attention and indicates the high-stake situation in the movie. Lots of fight scenes are shown, and one particular shot made all classic Spider-Man fans hold their breath. 

In Andrew Garfield’s “The Amazing Spider-Man,” his love interest, Gwen Stacy, fell from a clock tower. He managed to catch her, but her head hit the ground, instantly killing her. Something similar happens in the trailer, but with MJ falling from scaffolding and with Spider-Man reaching out to her. 

This shot was a punch in the gut for all fans of previous Spider-Man movies.

This movie will no doubt be exhilarating and will have viewers on the edge of their seats. From the scenes packed with action, to those brimming with emotion, it will be an interesting viewing experience.

Expectations and theories have risen among Marvel fans, and the stakes for Peter have never been higher. Set to release on Dec. 17, everyone is waiting for the thrilling conclusion of this Spider-Man trilogy.
