Doctor Strange is wearing the Eye of Agamotto, even though the time stone doesn’t exist in his current timeline

The Eye of Agamotto is actually the time stone in the MCU, which is something Strange wears and uses in 2016’s “Doctor Strange.”

However, he sacrifices the time stone to Thanos in “Infinity War” and all of the infinity stones are later returned to their own timelines at the end of “Endgame.” So, in Strange’s current timeline, he doesn’t actually have the time stone.

Perhaps he is just wearing the Eye of Agamotto for the drip, or maybe there’s another reason he’s still wearing it. There seems to be a lot of timey-wimey stuff going on.

There’s a Daily Bugle news van

The Daily Bugle, the famous paper in the Spider-Man comics that J. Jonah Jameson is editor of, already exists in the MCU.

In “Far From Home,” Jameson is revealed to be the host of a sensationalist news outlet called TheDailyBugle.net — giving the news company a modern update for the MCU.

However, it’s still neat to see the Daily Bugle van here, and they are sure to be a big presence in this movie.

There might be a hidden Black Cat reference

In this clip, Peter seems to be at school during Halloween, as Halloween themed decorations adorn the classroom.

One of these decorations is a cut out black cat stuck to the wall. This could just be a Halloween decoration with no further meaning whatsoever but it is worth noting that Black Cat is a key Spider-Man character in the comics.

In the comics, Black Cat AKA Felicia Hardy is a world-renowned cat burglar and anti-heroine who has been an enemy, ally, and lover of Spider-Man at various times.

Felicity Jones portrayed Black Cat in “The Amazing Spider-Man 2.” There have been rumors that Andrew Garfield, the Spidey in that movie, will be appearing in “No Way Home,” while other characters from past Spidey franchises will also be appearing. So it would make sense.

Plus, Sony has long been gestating over a Black Cat solo movie or TV series. Make of that what you will.

Doctor Strange’s mug is pretty adorable

While this won’t have any bearing on the events of the movie (well, you never know…), it’s still a pretty darn cute detail.

The mug that Strange drinks from has the words “oh for… sake” written on them with a fox in between them, spelling out: “oh for fox sake.”

Strange will likely be inclined to use that phrase when the spell to erase the world’s memory of Peter Parker being Spider-Man seems to go wrong.

There’s a ‘Devil in disguise’ sign, which could hint at Mephisto …

The Mephisto hype train picks up steam again.

Many of us have been obsessed with the idea of Mephisto appearing in the MCU ever since he was teased in “WandaVision,” and we aren’t about to let that drop here.

In this clip, which looks like Spider-Man is heading into court, someone holds a sign up calling Spider-Man the “devil in disguise,” complete with a picture of Spidey as the devil.

This could be a hint to Mephisto, Marvel’s answer to the devil, having a presence in this movie. Plus, one Marvel fan argued that the strange winter tundra in Strange’s Sanctum Santorum could also be the work of Mephisto:

… But it could also hint at Matt Murdock AKA Daredevil, who might have even appeared in the trailer

Matt Murdock is the Hell’s Kitchen superhero Daredevil, to who this sign could be a reference.

Supporting this theory is the rumor that Charlie Cox, who played Daredevil in the Netflix series, is set to reprise his role as Murdock in “No Way Home.” He was reportedly seen on set.

Murdock’s day job is a lawyer, and since Spider-Man seems to be heading to court in this film, it’s reasonable to assume that Murdock could be appearing as Peter Parker’s lawyer.

Elsewhere in the trailer is a little clip of someone slamming down a file of papers in front of Peter. The man’s face isn’t seen, but fans have theorized that the arms seen could belong to Murdock — and have even begun comparing the man’s arm hair to Cox’s. The lengths we Marvel fans go to.

Spider-Man is holding a mysterious cube

This clip, which is actually the chosen thumbnail for Sony’s trailer on YouTube, sees Doctor Strange pushing Peter’s astral projection out of his body, similar to what the Ancient One did to Strange in “Doctor Strange.”

While that is interesting enough in itself, Spider-Man is holding a mysterious cube. It’s unclear exactly what this is but objects and artefacts are pretty crucial in the MCU, so we’re sure it will be of grave importance.

Lizard seems to make an appearance

There’s a smattering of villain teases in this insane trailer, including Alfred Molina’s Doc Ock actually appearing. But there are more subtle teases, too, and the first of which seems to be Lizard AKA Dr. Curt Connors.

While it’s hard to make out Lizard entirely, there’s a moment in the trailer jumps out and snarls at Peter. This looks like Lizard.

This shot was really dark but is this Lizard? #SpiderManNoWayHome pic.twitter.com/rDgUaqR23E

Connors has been featured in both of the prior Spider-Man franchises. In the Tobey Maguire series, he was played by Dylan Baker. He never actually became the Lizard in those films, and only featured as Connors.

Then, Rhys Ifans played him in “The Amazing Spider-Man,” in which he actually became the Lizard.

Since Alfred Molina’s Doc Ock appeared in the trailer and a few other villains from those franchises were teased, it would be easy to believe Lizard could feature, too.

The yellow electricity could hint at Electro

Electro is a classic Spider-Man comics villain, and Jamie Foxx played the bad guy in “The Amazing Spider-Man 2.” In that one, he was blue and shot blue electricity from his body.

In a now-deleted Instagram post, Foxx confirmed his involvement in “No Way Home” and stated that he wouldn’t be blue in this version.

That would align more with the classic comics look of Electro, who wears a yellow and green suit and shoots out yellow electricity from his hands instead of blue. Hence, the yellow lightning.

The sand also hints at Sandman

In the same shot where we get the yellow electricity, we see a great sandstorm. It looks like a face or body can just about be made out in all the mayhem.

Sandman is another classic Spidey villain, and the character was played by Thomas Haden Church in “Spider-Man 3.” He could reprise his role here, too.

Is that Tobey Maguire’s black-suited Spider-Man?

There have been endless rumors that former Spider-Mans (Spider-Men? Spideys?)  Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield could be appearing in this movie. While they’ve denied such rumors (as has Holland), it still kind of seems likely they’ll be appearing given all of the past villains being re-introduced here.

In the clip where the lightning and sand can be seen, a cowering Spider-Man can be spotted in the bottom corner. This Spidey is wearing a black suit. While Tom Holland is seen wearing black Spider-Man suit earlier in the trailer, this suit here looks a little different.

The white lines look much thicker and seem to resemble the black suit worn by Maguire in “Spider-Man 3.”

Willem Dafoe seems to be back as the Green Goblin

While we don’t get official confirmation of Willem Dafoe’s return as Green Goblin as we do of Molina’s Doc Ock, this one seems to be a pretty dead cert.

Featuring in the trailer is a pumpkin bomb with the exact same design as those seen in the Tobey Maguire “Spider-Man” trilogy where Dafoe played the Goblin, AKA Norman Osborn.

When the pumpkin bomb appears in the trailer, a famous, cackling laugh can be heard — and it sounds exactly like Dafoe’s Green Goblin laugh.

All of these villains could be setting up the Sinister Six, a team of villains in the comics who work together against Spidey. Sony has long wanted a Sinister Six movie.
