Spider-Man (Tom Holland) isn’t a middle finger in a new take on Spider-Man: No Path Home. In the sequel to Spidey, which hits theaters on December 17, the sprawling menace Doctor Octopus (Alfred Molina) is armed and dangerous – and returns from the dead. Thoughts manipulated by Peter Parker (Tobey Maguire) of his home universe in the years 2004 Spider-Man 2, Doc Ock retaliates against any Spider-Man he can get his hands on. It turns out to be Spider-Man (Holland) of the Marvel Cinematic Universe – the consequence of a risky spell cast by Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) to restore Spider-Man’s supposedly secret identity.

A new image (via United States today) shows more of the bridge battle sequence that ends first No way home trailer, where the not-so-good doctor shows up with a “Hello, Peter”. Clad in the Iron Spider armor invented by the Iron Man mentor (Robert Downey Jr.), Spider-Man meets the new foe Doctor Octopus (and the hood of a car).

The clash comes 17 years after Doc Ock’s defeat in Spider-man 2, who “terrified” a then eight-year-old Dutchman.

“I was obsessed with [Sam] Raimi’s films, “Holland said Empire Magazine, the first to reveal new footage of Doc Ock’s return from Molina. “I remember seeing Alfred in his costume for the first time, and he was wearing glasses, and he was wearing his belt, which the legs were attached to. And I remember when I was a kid being terrified. by him.”

For the first time in Spider-Man cinematic history, our likable neighborhood hero is unmasked and is no longer able to separate his normal life from the big issue of being a superhero. When he asks Doctor Strange for help, the stakes get even more dangerous, forcing him to find out what it really means to be Spider-Man.

With Tom Holland, Zendaya, Marisa Tomei, Alfred Molina, Jamie Foxx and Benedict Cumberbatch, Sony and Marvel’s Spider-Man: No Path Home opens exclusively in theaters on December 17th.
