Without knowing anything about Marvel, almost everyone knows who Spider-man is. The role of Spider-man has been taken on by Tobey Maguire, Andrew Garfield, and the current Spider-man Tom Holland. On December 17th, 2021, Spider-Man No Way Home was released exclusively in theaters starring Tom Holland. The cast also includes Zendaya as MJ, Willem Dafoe as Green Goblin, Jamie Foxx as Electro, Alfred Molina as Dr. Otto Octavius, Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange, and many more. Marvel waited a month before the set release date to release the official trailer for the film. This had Marvel fans at the edge of their seats, anxiously awaiting some information about the upcoming film. 


After watching the new trailer, I am very excited for this film. Seeing old actors coming into the Marvel Cinematic Universe to reprise their old roles is amazing to see. I have been a Spider-Man fan for a long time so I’m just excited to see what director Jon Watts has been able to put together. On Youtube, a lot of fans have released their reactions and a lot of other people are just as excited as I am.


 For those who have not seen the trailer or have not kept up to date with the new Spider-man movies, this new movie takes place after Spider-man’s identity was revealed as Peter Parker. He struggles with people attacking him and making him the bad guy. Parker then begins to think of ways to fix everything so he can continue to live his double life. Doctor Strange begins to help Spider-man by casting a spell so everyone can forget that he is Spider-man. Parker unknowingly tampers with the spell and the multiverse begins to come to life. Spider-man villains from previous films continue to appear in the trailer while Willem Dafoe is narrating in the background. This movie is going to be a tear-jerker for sure and many fans believe that this movie will end in a tragedy. Nothing too bad will happen since the producer of Sony, Amy Pascal, has announced three more Spider-man movies with Tom Hollands’ Spider-man.  After the movie is released, I plan to write about the film and give my opinion on it so stay tuned!
