No Way Home Easter Eggs Revealed in New Trailer
The second trailer for Spider-Man: No Path Home released on Tuesday, November 16, and provided a preview of the superhero’s new adventure.
It was so jam-packed with new plot points and new characters that there was a lot to unbox for fans just from the 3 minute preview.
Here, News week break down all the Easter eggs in the trailer.
1. Doctor Ock
Alfred Molina’s Doctor Otto Octavius (Doc Ock) is the only villain whose presence has already been confirmed before the second trailer, as he appeared briefly in the first.
The character takes a bigger role in the new trailer, even going so far as to meet Peter Parker (Tom Holland) while he is with MJ (Zendaya) and Ned (Jacob Batalon), who laugh at his name.
Fan theories as to whether Doc Ock was fighting Tobey Maguire’s iteration of Spider-Man were quashed in the trailer, as it showed an expanded version of the scene where Holland’s Spidey revealed himself, and the villain said he was not the Peter he knew.
The character has also updated his mechanical arms since the last time fans saw him in Tobey Maguire. Spider Man films, because they are now in black and red.
2. Green Goblin
Several versions of Green Goblin appear in the trailer, suggesting both the iteration of Willem Dafoe and that of Maguire’s Dane DeHaan and that of Andrew Garfield. Spider Man movies will appear.
The villain is shown in his classic costume but he did not show his face, which also hints at the possibility that James Franco was the one under the mask as he reprized the Green Goblin nickname in Maguire’s Spider-Man 2.
But Dafoe does appear in the trailer, at least his voice. The actor can be heard telling Peter that he “struggles to have it all.” [he] want to[s]. “
On top of that, there’s a brief glimpse of a second Green Goblin in a black hood, which appears to be DeHaan’s version of the character.
Jamie Foxx’s Electro is also shown fighting Holland’s Spider-Man in the trailer, though he’s no longer blue like he was in the Garfield movies.
He is heard saying that he doesn’t want anything “taken away” from him, which could well be a reference to Parker’s attempt to send all the villains back to their respective multiverses.
4. The sandman
that of Sam Raimi Spider-Man 3 introduced the antagonist The Sandman to the universe of Maguire, played by Thomas Haden Church, and he was also seen in the new trailer.
While he was from Maguire Spider Man films where the character teams up with Electro and The Lizard (Rhys Ifans) to fight Holland’s Spidey, despite these two appearing in Garfield’s films.
5. The lizard
In the blink of an eye and you’ll miss it, The Lizard of Ifans aka Dr Curt Connors is also shown fighting Spider-Man in Holland..
He was the main antagonist of The Amazing Spider-Man where he was arrested for his crimes after confronting Garfield’s Parker, but it appears he managed to escape his cell.
6. The fate of the wicked
In the trailer, Benedict Cumberbatch’s Dr. Stephen Strange tells Peter that all antagonists appearing in their universe are destined to die fighting Spider-Man.
He claims that it is the “fate” of the wicked to come to an end this way, which brings us back to What if…? where The Watcher (Jeffrey Wright) says he can’t change the fate of the multiverse, he can only watch.
But, Peter seems to want to change that and save them all, something that could end badly for him and his loved ones.
7. MJ’s death
Speaking of how things could turn out badly for her loved ones, the trailer showed a moment when MJ falls from a building and, in slow motion, no less, reaches out to Peter to save her.
This is a clear reference to how the character dies, and while it’s not clear whether MJ’s iteration of Zendaya will come to an end, the scene is shot in the same way as the version. Emma Stone from her passed away in The Amazing Spider-Man 2.
8. Spider-Man costumes
Spider-Man is seen in a number of different costumes throughout the trailer: one that’s red and blue, the other red and black, and one that’s all black and has the ability to tap into magic. from Dr. Strange.
While Holland’s Parker is seen in the first two, the Spider-Man in the black suit doesn’t show his face, which could well mean he’s the Maguire or Garfield version of the character.
However, it could be that Parker from Holland was simply given a costume imbued with magic to help the villains return to their respective universes.
9. Captain America’s shield
The world is still mourning the loss of Captain America in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and there is a point where a statue is shown being remodeled to include his shield.
It appears to be the Statue of Liberty that is being updated as the sculpture’s flame is briefly visible when the shield falls during the fight between Spider-Man, Electro, The Lizard, and The Sandman.
10. The multiverse is open
The trailer ends with Parker and Dr. Strange watching the multiverse open up, and the latter warns that “they’re starting to come out.”
This appears to be the result of the events of Disney + Loki series, where Loki’s variant Sylvie (Sophia DiMartino) opened up the multiverse when she killed The One Who Remains (Jonathan Majors).
Spider-Man: No Way Home will be released in US theaters on December 17th.
