Spider-Man: NWH is now less than a month away, and fans are finally getting a good look at what the third installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe will include, which is exciting news. The MCU faithful have been speculating how No Way Home’s Multiversal villains will influence the film’s narrative since Sony released the second trailer for the movie at a fan event earlier this year.
As seen in the new footage, Alfred Molina’s Doc Ock and Willem Dafoe’s Green Goblin are joined by Jaime Foxx, Thomas Haden Church, and Rhys Ifans’ Lizard as the Multiverse’s most infamous villains. It doesn’t stop there; in Sony’s latest round of promotional trailers, we see Spider-Man facing off against the Sorcerer Supreme and other Multiversal antagonists while also seeing the villains repurpose some familiar Stark technology against the web-slinger.

After being “bit by that spider,” the wall-crawler admits that he’s had only one week of everyday life since. Dr. Strange’s “botched” spell, now “pulling in visitors from every universe,” is the subject of the following TV spot.
First, Alfred Molina’s Doc Ock realizes that Tom Holland’s Peter Parker is not the one he knows as Spider-Man, which prompts Parker to exclaim that he is “so confused right now” in the second commercial. Spider-Man villains like Green Goblin and Lizard are also shown in the thirty-second spot, which ends with Peter realizing “the multiverse is real.”

TV footage shows a closer look at Jaime Foxx’s Electro’s new look, which may even feature some standard MCU technology:
To further emphasize Spider-Man’s need to figure out why and how to save the Multiversal villains, “Help” is the third Spider-Man: NWH TV spot. As Peter Parler is pursued by Doc Ock, the villain says he “underestimated” him.

He’s curious about “those guys.” in which new footage of Peter fighting Doc Ock in nanotech Iron Spider suits is shown accompanied by the question: “What the hell is going on?” With the help of what appears to be Tony Stark’s miniature Arc Reactor, Electro may be drawing power from it while on the verge of an explosion.
If you look closely, you can hear Lizard’s chilling roar, which shocks J. Jonah Jameson enough to wonder whether he’s “a dinosaur:” The final TV spot, titled “New Suit Cutdown,” hints at Doc Ock taking the Iron Spider’s nanotech and incorporating it into his mechanical arms.
As shown in the accompanying captions, Dr. Octopus greets Spider-Man and wonders aloud if he believes his “fancy new suit’s going to save” him. Dr. Octopus is taken aback when Peter extends his suit’s four arms once more, telling his tentacles that it looks like they have competition:

This should give Spider-Man 2 fans a hint about how intense the battle with Doctor Octopus will be.

There are several possible consequences to the third MCU Spider-Man story, including Doctor Strange having to deal with a broken Multiverse, which is promised to be explored in Doctor Strange’s next solo outing.

If Peter doesn’t intend to keep Happy Hogan in the loop about his plans, this scene will most likely remain in the film’s first act.
