Spider-Man: No Way Home’s marketing is cruising at the moment with yet another TV Spot getting released which in a way, adds more mystery to the multiverse puzzle this film is already brimmed with. As we all are familiar, Alfred Molina’s Doctor Octavius is making a return in the film alongside more iconic villains from past Spider-Man films. These include Jamie Foxx’s Electro, Willem Dafoe’s Green Goblin, Sandman, and The Lizard. The TV spots released earlier suggested that Doc Ock already knew a Spider-Man, but it isn’t Tom Holland’s web-slinger. However, this latest TV spot reveals that Doctor Octavius expected to see Tobey Maguire’s Spider-Man under the mask than Tom’s.

As you may have noticed, this new No Way Home TV spot shows the more complicated role that Alfred Molina’s character plays in the film’s storyline. While Octavius appears in the film as a villain, probably from his death moment in Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 2, however, the character looks more like an ally to Benedict Cumberbatch’s Doctor Strange, Peter Parker, and his friends (Jacob Batalon and Zendaya). In this scene, one can see Doc Ock helping Doctor Strange explain to Peter that he’s actually a crossover from a different reality of the multiverse, landing in this reality due to Strange’s spell. Since Otto gives out a confirmation that while he does know a Spider-Man, it isn’t Tom Holland’s Spidey – making it easy for fans to guess that Molina is indeed addressing Tobey Maguire’s Spider-Man from Raimi films.
So far, Marvel Studios and all members of the cast and crew have been quiet about the inclusion of more than one Spider-Man in the film but the little hints the TV spots and trailers have started to make things a bit more clear now. Still, with every new footage release or marketing by Marvel Studios, fans have started to pick on more clues as to figure out if Maguire and Garfield are actually present in the much-anticipated film.
However, Andrew Garfield has been extremely vocal about his involvement in the film, denying the rumors a number of times.
“Listen, I’m not in the film. I love Spider-Man, I always have, I was so happy to have played the part. I’m so excited to see what they do with the third one,” Garfield told The TODAY Show. “Just like you are, to be honest. That’s not the diplomatic answer, I really, really mean it.”
“I love Tom Holland, I love [director] Jon Watts, I love [producers] Amy Pascal and Kevin Feige, and what they’ve done with those movies and that character,” he continued. “It’s an important character to me. So I’m just really excited to see what happens in the third one, as you guys are.”
Spider-Man: Far From Home will hit the theaters on December 17.
