The teaser for Spider-Man: No Way Home is officially here, following weeks of anticipation, speculations, and conjecture. Not just that, but now it appears to be all it must have been advertised to be.
The very first preview managed to outperform Avengers: Endgame in terms of visibility, which is an incredible achievement. Spider-Man, on the other hand, is the only one who could carry it off.
This movie’s main attraction was the verification of suspicions of Marvel Studios reportedly intending to bring back several antagonists both from the previous Sam Raimi and The Amazing Spider-Man incarnations of the iconic web crawler.
Within this sense, Alfred Molina’s comeback as Doc Ock is perhaps the pick of the bunch, saying the already line “Hi Peter” – a remark that several assume is directed at Tobey Maguire, who now is reported to reprise his role as Peter Parker within the movie.
And all, fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe got a new dosage of Benedict Cumberbatch’s Doctor Strange, whom possibly the best spell to solve Peter’s dilemma goes wrong.
Viewers noticed something strange about Sorcerer Supremes’ new look, including an empty Eye of Agamotto wrapped over his neck, along with the sorcerer shattering the cosmos.
The Eye of Agamotto made its debut appearance in Doctor Strange, the very same MCU movie that introduced fans to the Time Stone for the very first moment.
The Eye was developed by a magician called Agamotto, the founder of Mystical Techniques, as recounted by Wong in Strange’s origins film. The instrument’s function, as presented to audiences there at the time, would have been to confine the powers of the Time Stone, one among six Infinity Stones that formed the focal point of the most recent Avengers flicks.
The mysterious item was used only to transport the Time Stone until now. The Eye being initially seen terrorizing an apple, reversing the devastation of Hong Kong, and severely irritating a creature of extraordinary power.
Strange’s new element was shown extensively in Avengers: Infinity War when Thanos and his Black Order were after it.
Each moment, the good Doctor was only seen quickly using the Lens, connecting into the Infinity Stone inside to spree all of the inescapable possibilities wherein the world’s fiercest warriors were doomed to fail. Strange didn’t use against Thanos during their aesthetically stunning combat on Titan, which the enemy soon picked up on.
Thanos seemed to smash the Eye of Agamotto, yet given the Mad Titan’s statement that this was a fake, there was a strong case to be made that stone’s shell is still intact, just out of sight.
So what is the Eye without the stone? It’s preferable to look at the actual source.
The Eye of Agamotto never contained an Infinity Stone, excepting the Time Stone, in the comic; Marvel came up with that concept entirely on its own. But what else can it do?
It does, after all, have Time Stone qualities, because it has been proven to just be capable to replay current developments its abilities appear to be all-encompassing. It can telepathically communicate with others, produce an exclusive light, transport dozens of creatures, weaken adversaries, banish devils, and so much more.
Inside the comics, only one gadget known as the Eye of Truth is solely used for discipline, called “white magic” in the process. The Eye will only react to a person if he or she is a sorcerer with a pure spirit. This gentle rule has been violated several times in comics by adversaries like Baron Mordo and Loki.
This magical item was constructed by Agamotto, a member of the Vishantis, a trio of god-like beings that are the wellspring of the strength that whoever occupies the position of Sorcerer Supreme could choose to pull from—a position that was formed and originally occupied by Agamotto himself, much the same as the MCU.
Also with comics equivalent of something like the artifact possessing no links to the Infinity Stones, there will be plenty of space for the MCU to return to its roots, perhaps even introducing a retcon or two.
It’s covering of the Eye of Agamotto might yet contain magical strengths and traits that Marvel Studios has still yet to unveil. And besides, it was created by the MCU’s first Time Lord, so there’s plenty of potential for unexplored mythology.
Then again, after Infinity Stone has been removed, Strange’s trademark Eye of Agamotto could merely be a decorative piece—something to bind his suit altogether, or a question of custom.
Doctor Strange has been seen in Avengers: Endgame, when the Wizard Supreme didn’t have had the Eye of Agamotto on him – at certainly not visibly. As a result, its unexpected inclusion necessitates more clarification on Marvel’s behalf.
Perhaps, rather than having to wait till March 22 next year for a clear explanation in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, fans will receive it in Spider-Man: No Way Home on December 17.
