Spider-Man: No Way Home Trailer Breaks Records

Spider-Man Slings Into the Multiverse In Spider-Man: No Way Home Trailer

For over two years now, the release of the Spider-Man: No Way Home trailer had Marvel fans waiting in anticipation ever since the release of Spider-Man: Far From Home. Directed by Jon Watts and written by Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers, this third MCU Spider-Man film features the villain Mysterio played by Jake Gyllenhaal and is centered around Peter Parker (Tom Holland) and Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch).

Fans really showed how amped they were for the teaser trailer as it broke the record for most global views within the first 24 hours. MCU’s mega blockbuster Avengers: Endgame, the previous record holder, drove in a massive 289 million views in its first day. Spider-Man: No Way Home gained a total viewership of a whopping 355.5 million views.

Following the events in the second installment of John Watt’s web-slinging film series, Peter Parker’s life and reputation are flipped upside down as Mysterio reveals his true identity to the public. Parker, wanting to hide his superhero identity, seeks help from Doctor Strange to try to deceive his family and friends but things quickly spiral out of control and Parker must discover what it truly means to be Spider-Man.

There has been confirmation that Alfred Molina will return as a reprise of the role of Doctor Octopus from 2002’s Spider-Man 2. Willem Dafoe will also reprise his role as The Green Goblin (Norman Osborn). Due to the theme of time and space continuum, there is speculation that Tobey Macquire and Andrew Garfield will make an appearance to join Tom Holland in the multiverse.

Good news for movie-goers, Spider-Man: No Way Home has an exclusive theatrical release on December 17, 2021. Sony executives have stated at this year’s CinemaCon in Las Vegas that they do not support releasing films at both theaters and on streaming devices at the same time because it hurts their business. Another reason that may stick out is that Sony does not have their own streaming service yet. “My Spider-Sense is tingling!”
