A day after the Spider-Man: No Way Home trailer got leaked, Sony and Marvel Studios finally releases the official trailer for Spidey's next adventure. The trailer was not only fun, awesome, and exciting, but it was also full of juicy No Way Home Easter Eggs.


Spider-Man: No Way Home Trailer Easter Eggs and References

Sony's Spider-Man: No Way Home is about to be the Web-Head's biggest on-screen adventure yet. A great storyline inspired by the comics, a Marvel team-up of the Sorcerer Supreme and our favorite web-slinger, and the classic Spider-Man villains all teaming up to form the MCU's Sinister Six. Need I say more? It's gonna be a blast!

Okay, enough hype, let's cut to the chase and check out the No Way Home Easter Eggs.

This is all Mysterio's fault

The aftermath of Spider-Man: Far From Home's ending where Peter Parker's identity was revealed by J. Jonah Jameson can be seen in the first moments of the trailer. It appears to be affecting everyone in Peter's life in a negative way with people treating the Webhead like he's a celebrity. It's ultimately the reason why he goes to Dr. Strange to help him make everyone forget about his identity… but we'll talk more about that later.

The Daily Bugle

MJ can be seen reading the real-world New York Post, which on its own isn’t really exciting, but in the Sam Raimi Spider-Man movies, the Daily Bugle’s logo and layout were clearly modeled on the Post‘s. It seems like The Daily Bugle will be making appearances on both Spider-Man: No Way Home and in Sony's Venom: Let There Be CarnageDoes this mean they'll eventually connect Venom to the MCU? Will there be a J. Jonah Jameson solo film? Whatever the case is, we're just glad to have the iconic newspaper make its comeback.

Steve Ditko

Steve Ditko’s name can be seen in the first shot of the trailer, as some graffiti on the wall behind Peter and MJ.

Ditko co-created both Spider-Man and Doctor Strange and here they are finally sharing the screen in one of the biggest films in the MCU. But to be completely honest, Ditko absolutely would have hated this for a number of reasons. Especially because he barely got a dime from all the Spidey and Strange merchandise throughout the years.

Wait, was that Matt Murdock?

In the trailer, we see poor old Peter get interrogated by the police over Mysterio's Death. Many keen-eyed fans think the person wearing a white shirt with folded sleeves could likely be Charlie Cox's Matt Murdock a.k.a. Daredevil from the popular Netflix series.  It wouldn't be impossible though as the character's involvement with No Way Home has been rumored for a long time.


One More Day…

Earlier we talked about Spidey reaching out to Dr. Strange to help him make everyone forget about his identity, although it appears that there will be major consequences.

Since Avengers: Endgame, Strange appears to be doing well for himself. He does, however, seem a little too eager to help Peter by casting a spell that is meant to either just erase the memory of the world that Peter is Spider-Man, or perhaps as Peter puts it, make it so Mysterio never went public with his identity. This is heavily inspired by the controversial Spider-Man arc in the comics titled One More Day.

In Marvel's One More Day comic, After Aunt May had been shot, Spider-Man seeks help to save her life. He encounters the demon Mephisto, who offers to save her life if Spider-Man gives him his marriage. Spider-Man and his wife, Mary Jane Watson, agree, and this part of their history is erased so that, effectively, they have never been married.

Into The Multiverse of Madness

The trailer shows us Peter having second thoughts at the last minute and distracting Strange when he performs the spell causing the multiverse to converge. This could be a misdirection though. The real reason for the convergence of the multiverse could be Wanda Maximoff a.k.a. Scarlet Witch who we last saw exploring the Darkhold at the end of WandaVision. Or perhaps even the death of  He Who Remains by the hand of Sylvie in the final episode of Marvel's Loki.

The Black Suit Spider-Man

The No Way Home trailer gives us a glimpse of our friendly neighborhood wall-crawler in the black and gold suit. Although it was a short clip, it's pretty exciting to see it in live-action. The suit seems to be integrated with Stark technology and Dr. Strange's mystical artifact. One of the promotional photos even had the tagline “Magic with a thwip” while showing us Spidey in his black and gold suit using what looks like a magical web-shooter.

Are we finally getting a Sinister Six?

One of the best No Way Home Easter Eggs was when we started seeing the OG villains from the previous Spider-Man films. Although it was done with a hint of subtlety, there's no denying that all these villains will eventually show up. In the No Way Home trailer, we see flashes of lightning, a massive sand structure, the Green Goblin's pumpkin bomb, and last but definitely not least, Alfred Molina's Doctor Octopus from Sony's Spider-Man 2.

It's such a delight to see one of the best superhero film villains to be making such a spectacular comeback and the people absolutely cannot wait to see more of the iconic villain. Also, did you hear the Green Goblin's laugh and the lizard's roar?

Where are Andrew and Tobey?

This isn't really a No Way Home Easter Egg but there isn't any word yet as to when we'll actually get to see the two share the screen with Tom Holland's Spider-Man. Rumors, however, suggest that we'll actually see Garfield and Mcguire on the film during a post-credits sequence. But rumors are just rumors. For now at least.

Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios' Spider-Man: No Way Home is set to release on Dec. 17, 2021.
