Bhubaneswar: The much-awaited official poster of ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ movie was released by Sony Pictures, today.
The poster seemingly depicts a battle scene between iconic villain Doctor Octopus and the web-slinger. The tentacles of Doctor Octopus in an attacking mode can be seen around Spider-Man in the poster.
Doctor Octopus is being played by actor Alfredo Molina in the movie. However, it was yet to be confirmed whether the villain is from the Raimiverse or another variant of Doctor Octopus in the Marvel-Sony Cinematic Universe.
The biggest reveal of the poster was villain Green Goblin. He can be seen flying with the hovering skateboard in the poster.
Glimpse of powers of other two villains– Sandman and Electro– can also be seen in the poster.
The multiverse factor is very likely to be explored in the movie as Sony Pictures shared the poster on Twitter with caption “The Multiverse unleashed”.

The first trailer of ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’, released on August 24, featured notorious Pumpkin Bombs that were used by Green Goblin, an iconic villain from Raimiverse played by Willem Dafoe.
While the second trailer is yet to be released, Marvel fans are eager to know what’s in store for them in the upcoming trailer. Most of them hope to see Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield reprising their Spider-Man roles in the trailer. Rumours are rife that the two actors will return in ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ and play their respective web-slinger roles from the past Spider-Man movies.
Ever since the rumours of Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield reprising their Spider-Man roles in ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’, slated to release on December 17, surfaced, Marvel fans across the globe have been eagerly waiting for the upcoming movie.
While Sony Pictures or Marvel Studios were yet to confirm about the casting, the two actors have not answered in affirmative while being asked on various occasions about the speculations.
However, fans are quite hopeful to see Tobey Maguire’s Spider-Man from the Raimiverse and Andrew Garfield’s Spider-Man from The Amazing Spider-Man universe sharing screen with Tom Holland’s Spider-Man in the Marvel-Sony Cinematic Universe.
As the first trailer of ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ has clearly hinted the presence of multiverse factor in the movie, it is quite safe to assume that nostalgia awaits for Marvel fans on December 17 with the rumours becoming reality.
Further, Alfredo Molina, who had played the character of iconic villain Doctor Octopus in Raimiverse, had clearly said in an interview that he reprised the character in ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’. Appearance of Alfredo Molina’s Doctor Octopus at the end of the first trailer with the ‘scary’ tentacles has cemented the claims of multiple villians from the past Spider-Man movies returning in ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’.
