The Latest Look At Spider-Man: No Way Home Has Fans Wondering About His Next Big Battle

A new "Spider-Man" film is always something to look forward to, but because of all the rumors about the potential return of both Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield as their respective versions of the Wall-Crawler, "Spider-Man: No Way Home" has fans really, really excited. It's even more tantalizing knowing — as we do now — that the Marvel Cinematic Universe is clearly pivoting toward the multiverse in a big way. Shows like "WandaVision" and "Loki" have served as a primer to get audiences ready for some cosmic action on the big screen. And yet again, spoilers have potentially been revealed about the upcoming adventure via merchandise for the film.

It isn't the first time this has happened, and it certainly won't be the last. In early July 2021, a selection of toys for "Spider-Man: No Way home" was revealed via Marvel's website — showcasing a couple of new costumes for the Web-Slinger. And thanks to some of the smaller designs on a Funko figure, it seems likely that Spidey will be learning magic in the film. Although that's not one of Peter Parker's (Tom Holland) typical abilities, it's not surprising, since Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) will be on hand to fill the goatee-sporting mentor role left by Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.). 

Well, here we are again. Another new look at Spidey in the upcoming film reveals even more about what to expect from his next big adventure. Warning: Potential spoilers abound.

Multiverse-Web, go!

The black and gold suit seen in the previous reveal gets the spotlight here in the form of a new Hot Toys release, as the company revealed images of the figure on its Facebook page. The incredibly detailed design is pretty striking, and it's packed with details that could lead to much bigger things. For starters, it seems to be the upgraded red and black suit with all of its wiring exposed. As for why his fingers are still red, Twitter user @yipdogman speculated, "It's probably the under layer of the suit and doesn't have an under layer around the fingers. Just my guess."

Then there's the small issue of the gold gauntlets strapped to his wrists, which look like they can be used to channel magic webs through them. @MaptainR suggested on Twitter that, "it's gotta be enchanted for a reason. maybe multiverse traversal?" Well it definitely looks similar in design and color to the Sling-Rings worn by Doctor Strange and the sorcerers of Kamar-Taj — and who better to help the Web-Slinger get across the multiverse than the Sorcerer Supreme?

But the most interesting observation was made by The Direct, in a piece that notes that the background of the images seems to be styled after Tobey Maguire's "Spider-Man" and Andrew Garfield's "The Amazing Spider-Man 2." One shot shows Spidey swinging through the streets of New York with a similar lighting to the Maguire era, while another seems to show him fighting someone off-screen in Times Square, New York — where Garfield fought Jamie Foxx's Electro. It's an interesting connection, especially since Electro will also appear in the sequel.

Surely the "No Way Home" trailer has to arrive soon. Watch this space for updates when it does.
