Sony finally released the long-awaited first trailer for “Spider-Man: No Way Home” on Monday during the studio’s presentation at CinemaCon, and the footage sets up the return of iconic foes from the previous films that starred Tobey Maguire.

The trailer revealed Tom Holland‘s Peter Parker grappling with the fallout of everyone learning that he’s Spider-Man at the end of 2019’s “Spider-Man: Far From Home.” It also showed the teen webslinger turning to fellow New York-based superhero Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) for help after being framed by Quentin Beck/Mysterio (Jake Gyllenhaal) in “Far From Home.” 

As speculated, the upcoming film will also address the concept of the multiverse, as Doctor Strange told Peter in the trailer: “We tampered with the stability of space-time. The multiverse is a concept about which we know frighteningly little.” 

In addition to the return of allies like Doctor Strange and Wong (Benedict Wong), “No Way Home” will feature multiple villains.

The end of the trailer notably showed Alfred Molina back in action as Dr. Otto Octavius/Doc Ock, saying: “Hello, Peter.”

He was last seen drowning with his robotic tentacle arms at his waterfront lab after facing off against Maguire’s webslinger in 2004’s “Spider-Man 2.” Molina previously confirmed his involvement in “No Way Home” during an interview with Variety.

The trailer for “No Way Home” also hinted at another Maguire-era villain: Willem Dafoe‘s Norman Osborn/Green Goblin. The antagonist’s famous cackle was heard during one moment and one shot showed the character’s pumpkin bombs that were featured in Sam Raimi’s trilogy.

An additional shot appeared to show a creature that looks like Flint Marko/Sandman, who was portrayed by Thomas Hayden Church in Raimi’s “Spider-Man 3.”

Fans also speculated that flashes of yellow lightning seen in the trailer indicated the return of Jamie Foxx as Max Dillon/Electro. Foxx portrayed the villain in 2014’s “The Amazing Spider-Man 2,” which starred Andrew Garfield as the titular webslinger. And back in October 2020, The Hollywood Reporter said that Foxx would be back as the character. 

People also believed they saw and heard Dr. Curtis Connord/The Lizard, played by Rhys Ifans in “The Amazing Spider-Man,” in the sky.

All the overt and discreet potential villain nods in the trailer for “No Way Home” added fuel to the speculation that Maguire and Garfield will suit up again as the iconic comic book character — though Garfield has denied his involvement
