It is hardly 12hrs since the trailer of the most anticipated movie of the year ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ was released, and we are already seeing thousands of theories online, from the appearance of Mephisto to Mile Morales's Spiderman being part of the film.
The teaser trailer revealed many clues and we uncovered a lot of them in our trailer-related article as soon as it was released. But the first teaser trailer has teased so much that even 10 articles wouldn't be enough to write all the possibilities.
In the trailer, we see Dr. Strange casting the spell to remove the memories of Spider-Man's identity as Peter disturbs him that tampers the spell. After, a moment of silence they start noticing something weird and realize that the whole universe is somehow colliding creating the multiverses to come together.
Is it all the universes colliding or just a few, and what could have gone wrong with Dr. Strange's Spell? - The teaser doesn't give a lot of clues but it gives enough to speculate what went wrong with the spell. It seemed like when Strange was removing the memories of Spider-Man's identity, he not only triggered this universe but all the universes in which Spiderman exists. This might have caused all these universes to collide and making people from all these places come together at once. So, the film is set in a newly created unique universe, where all the Spider-Man now exists together.
We may be seeing an angry and violent Dr. Strange in the teaser because he wasn't the one who cast the spell and is from another universe, or it's Mephisto pulling the strings and forcing Dr. Strange to cast the disastrous spell and then go after Peter. In the teaser, he is going all out on Spider-Man using all his might and tricks. Dr. Strange can also be seen with "The Eye of Agamotto," which was destroyed in Infinity War. The locket, however, is with both versions, the one who casts the spell and the one who is pursuing Peter.
The teaser also confirms the return of Major villains from all over the Spider-Man franchise, Alfred Molina returns as Otto Octavius/Dr. Octopus and says, "Hello Peter." The confidence with which he says hello to peter confirms that he might be knowing this Peter for a long time. So, this could be Tobey Maguire's Spiderman.
Other returning villains also include Sandman and Green Goblin from Tobey Maguire's Spiderman (because of his evil laugh in the teaser), Lizard and Electro from Amazing Spiderman, and If we consider Dr. Strange throwing all his might after Spiderman, then there are at least six villains with extraordinary superpowers.
Now, if you still consider that there is only one Spiderman to handle all these supervillains, then think twice. Can one Spider-Man handle this much, from Magic to the collision of universes? So, there's your hint about bringing the Spiderverse together, which means that all of Spiderman's from their respective universes could band together to deal with the situation. There's a chance Miles Morales Spiderman will join as well, and there's a valid explanation for it.
Now, there is a big chance for the film to be directly related to the Loki series. When He Who Remains says, "We just crossed the threshold," it could be the time when Sorcerer supreme casts the disastrous spell and at the same moment He Who Remains realizes that he won't be able to fix this with the help of TVA.
It is possible that this film alone won't be able to fix multiverse collision and the next series of events will take place in Multiverse of Madness. The film is certainly not set before the events of The Eternals as there is no reference to Multiverse in the Eternals trailer, however, we cannot completely deny that these two films can be in parallel.
Enjoy the trailer below, even if you have seen it as I have already watched it over 100 times to gather the clues, but I still could have missed some.
