The secret is out, and Peter Parker’s life has been turned upside-down (Big Willy style). So, what is a kid to do? When the whole world knows you’re Spider-Man, you can’t exactly go back to living a normal life. Naturally, you ask your co-worker Doctor Strange to Men in Black the universe.
But you don’t want him to erase the memory of everyone. Only some people. Unfortunately, that’s not how the spell works — which Wong vehemently instructed Doctor Strange not to cast. But he does, tampering with space time.
“The multi-verse is a concept about which we know frighteningly little,” Doctor Strange says.
So, yeah, Spider-Man: No Way Home is essentially a live-action version of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. Which means Alfred Molina’s Otto Octavius is back, as is Willem Dafoe’s Green Goblin. It also looks like Jamie Foxx’s Electro is involved, although we don’t actually see him.
We also don’t see the return of Tobey Maguire or Andrew Garfield, but they’ve been heavily rumored to play the titular character once more. Assuming all the players we think are involved show up in Spider-Man: No Way Home, the film will have a truly stacked cast.
Spider-Man: No Way Home hits theaters — exclusively, ugh — on December 17.
