Doctor Strange, Spider-Man Interrogate Doc Ock in No Way Home Promo

A new promo for Spider-Man: No Way Home sees Peter Parker (Tom Holland) and Doctor Stephen Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) interrogating Doctor Otto Octavius (Alfred Molina).

At the start of the promo, which was posted by Sony Pictures UK on Twitter, Doctor Strange confirms that Doc Ock knows a version of Peter that is Spider-Man. However, the villain then says the Peter he knows isn't standing next to Doctor Strange. From there, the preview provides a quick look at No Way Home's villains and gives a short explanation for how they ended up in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

No Way Home's version of Doc Ock is linked to the one that first appeared in 2004's Spider-Man 2, which was directed by Sam Raimi and starred Tobey Magurie as Peter. In that film, Doc Ock turned into a supervillain after an experiment gone awry accidentally killed his wife and fused him with a set of mechanical tentacles. While Doc Ock didn't survive that film, the other past Spider-Man villains returning in No Way Home pretty much all died in their movies. The only real exception to this is Flint Marko/Sandman, who seemingly survived the events of Spider-Man 3.

The return of so many past Spider-Man villains has led to rumors Maguire and Andrew Garfield will return to play their versions of Peter Parker in No Way Home. For his part, Garfield has denied on several occasions that he'll return for No Way Home. However, it's not uncommon for actors with high-profile cameos or secret roles in MCU movies to deny their casting.

No Way Home is a direct sequel to 2019's Spider-Man: Far From Home. At the end of that movie, Quentin Beck/Mysterio (Jake Gyllenhaal) died during the Battle of London after being hit by one of E.D.I.T.H.'s drones. However, he managed to frame Peter for his death and expose his identity to the world. This results in Peter seeking out Doctor Strange, who casts a spell designed to re-hide Spider-Man's identity. However, things go awry and the two end up breaking open the multiverse.

Directed by Jon Watts, Spider-Man: No Way Home releases Dec. 17. It's not clear at this time when Holland will next return as Spider-Man after that movie releases.
