We all know ol’ mate Tom Holland has quite the reputation for being your friendly neighbourhood Spoiler-Man, but it appears someone else entirely has leaked the trailer for Spider-Man: No Way Home.
If you want to watch the leaked trailer for the upcoming Spider-Man movie, you can find it yourself on Twitter or TikTok. It’s gone absolutely boonta, but I shan’t be linking to it here because I don’t want Marvel and Sony to eat me alive. In saying that, the leaked trailer is literally a video of someone else’s phone playing the trailer. You kind of have to squint to figure out what you’re looking, ya know?
This is what I mean.

To be honest, I thought this was some sort of prank. Earlier this year, Tom Holland and his cast mates took the piss out of the title reveal when they all posted fake names. Holland’s version was Spider-Man: Phone Home, a reference to everybody’s fave alien, ET.
He did eventually announce the real title, of course.
So after this stunt, I thought maybe they were doing another one. But the leaked trailer keeps getting removed from Twitter… If it was fake, why make the effort to remove it, right?

Plus, Holland just posted on his Instagram story: “You ain’t ready”, as if to tease that the official trailer is on its way. So it kind of sounds like someone jumped the gun. RIP whoever did it. Seriously.

If you can’t make out what’s going on in the leaked trailer, I wouldn’t stress. By the sounds of it – Holland’s Instagram story – the trailer is days, maybe hours away.
I totally get the hype though – I did try and watch the leaked trailer to see if Alfred Molina was in it, but all I got was pixelated… stuff. The actor has reprised his role as the beloved villain Doc Ock, which may or may not mean more characters from the multiverse are in No Way Home.
Spider-Man: No Way Home is slated for release, December 17.
In the meantime, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings hits cinemas September 2. This is Marvel’s first Asian superhero movie, starring Simu Liu in the lead role. You love to see it.
