The third installment of the arachnid hero, Spider-Man: No Way Home, has been the subject of conversation on social networks after releasing his second official trailer this Tuesday, November 16. The trailer revealed new surprises and increased fan speculation circulating since the first trailer: the multiverse.

In the second trailer of Spider-Man: No Way Home, starring Tom Holland, Peter Parker goes to Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) to cast a spell and make everyone forget his secret identity. Nevertheless, Parker tries to modify the spell for only a few to remember and by doing so you screw it up.

The error causes your world visitors from other universes arrive: Dr. Octopus, played by Alfred Molina, who had already appeared in the first preview; the Green Goblin, played by Willen Dafoe, the hero’s first rival in the 2002 film; the Sandman, played by Thomas Haden Church; the Lizard by Rhys Ifans and a version of Electro played by Jamie Foxx.

In the trailer, Doctor Strange asks Peter, Ned Leeds (Jacob Batalon) is Mary Jane Watson (Zendaya) to intervene in the disaster they caused during the spell. That’s when Parker faces the five villains to keep your world and your universe safe.

However, the difficulties are not long in coming. Doctor Stranger explains to the hero that all the visitors died facing Spider-Man and, therefore, it is their destiny to defeat them. From what is observed in the trailer, Parker refuses to do so and, instead of defeating them, seeks to protect them, contradicting the sorcerer.

On social media, fans have commented that the presence of these five villains only further increases the possibility that Holland’s Spider-Man will be joined by the other arachnid heroes: the one played by Tobey Maguire and the one by Andrew Garfield.

Seeing the three of them fight together is a wish fans have expressed on social media since the first trailer, released on August 26, when Dr. Octopus was first seen taking on Holland. The villain in this trailer tells Holland: «You are not Peter Parker », a phrase that raised hopes for the other arachnid heroes to appear.

In the trailer of Spider-Man: No Way Home solo five of the six appear. The absence of the sixth enemy has opened the debate in networks about who will be or if a new unpublished villain will appear. What fans have noticed is that, in one of the trailer’s final scenes, a three-on-one fight breaks out in which Peter launches himself against the Sandman. However, in the images it seems that Electro and the Lizard They go towards another objective that is not seen on the screen.

Speculation increased even more with the trailer released in Brazil, which is slightly longer than the American and European versions. There you see how Lizard gets hit out of nowhere, as if struck by an invisible man. This scene has caused controversy among fans: they are convinced that the other two Spider-Man will appear.
