The internet has been wanting the release of the first trailer for the upcoming Spider-Man movie, Spider-Man: No Way Home, for what seems like months now. With the rumors of the casting floating around, this trailer has become one of the most anticipated trailers in years.
However, the internet had an unfortunate sneak peak on Sunday when someone from Sony (reportedly) leaked a poor quality version of the trailer onto YouTube. Personally, I avoided watching the leaked trailer, expecting the real, fully developed trailer to be released in the next day or two.
I think it is a shame that this trailer was leaked and I wonder what was the motivation to leak it. Whoever it was, I am sure that Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige was ready to reign fire. It is amazing that this stuff does not happen for Marvel Studios. No Way Home is being promoted by Sony, and Sony seems to have had this issue in the past.
I am very excited to see the trailer, whether it comes out tonight or tomorrow. Spider-Man: No Way Home features Tom Holland, Benedict Cumberbatch, Zendaya, Jacob Batalon, Tony Revolori and Marisa Tomei. The film has conformed that Alfred Molina is returning to the role of Doctor Octopus and Jamie Foxx is returning to the role of Electro.
The rumors indicate that the film will also feature a Spider-Verse story where Toby Maguire and Andrew Garfield are reprising their own roles from Spider-Man movies of the past. This is what is causing such an uproar online. With villains confirmed from Spider-Man 2 and Amazing Spider-Man 2 respectively, it does make a lot of sense.
I do not expect Maguire and Garfield to make an appearance in the teaser trailer, but I sure hope they are in the film. If, at this point, they are not in the film, I would expect a huge backlash on the film. I do not think we have to worry about that though. I do believe they are in the movie.
Can’t wait to see the trailer… hopefully tonight after the Sony presentation at CinemaCon. We’ll see.
