This trailer unloads a lot. We have 5 villains battling it out with Spider-Man, but something tells me he’s not alone…..
Perhaps the shot of the trailer? Lizard, Electro and Sandman all ready to throw down with some Spider-Men? The hype train is real for the upcoming MCU flick, they just had a whole event for a trailer release. Most movies don’t do this, but this isn’t just another MCU movie dropping, this is something bigger….
The worst kept secret in Hollywood is Marvel trying to hide that Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire are going to be suiting up once again as their respective Spider-Man. Not shown in the trailer for obvious reasons, they want this reveal to happen within the context of the movie and not in a trailer. With that being said, this trailer packs a serious punch and showcases a larger than life experience for Peter Parker and company.
We understand that Peter is tired of the world knowing he is Spider-Man, so when he turns to Dr. Strange to perform a spell to erase that memory from the world, it doesn’t go according to plan and he actually opens a door to other universes and enter some of the most famous Spider-Man villains to ever grace the big screen. From Lizard to Doctor Octopus this Peter Parker is going to have his hands full.
When he finds out after a battle with Doc Ock that all of these villains are met their match and Dr. Strange informs him that in their universe they all died fighting Spider-Man, Peter takes it upon himself to try and save everyone. Realizing he can’t and perhaps those closest to him, help always finds those who need it and behold, Andrew and Tobey!
Does Doc Ock have a change of heart? Does he end up enjoying the company of this new Peter Parker and realize he doesn’t want to be bad anymore? It seems like it. How are all these villains arcs going to play out? How are Tobey and Andrew going to come into play? My guess for Andrew, he swings it at the last second to save MJ – as we see her falling much like his Gwen Stacey in his universe. So much going on and we only have one more month to wait to find out!
