Ever since the rumors started, it seemed like a crazy idea that Spider-Man would face off against villains from past film franchises. Yet, once the trailer dropped, it all changed. We got various teases throughout the trailer until the final confirmation that Alfred Molina will indeed return as Doctor Octopus. We only briefly saw him at the tail end of the trailer, as he greets Peter. Sadly, the trailer ends there as Tom Holland‘s Peter Parker equips the Iron Spider. Our wait for more has finally come to an end, as Empire shared new exclusive images with one featuring Spidey running away from his new nemesis, who is about to throw a car at him.
The chosen image is certainly a curious one given how blurry it is. It certainly looks like Spidey knows that he might not have a chance against Doc Ock, but there’s a fun idea of both using their expendable limbs against each other. Yet, he’s using the most advanced version of his suit and is seemingly running away from his new enemy. Perhaps he realizes what he has unleashed and is trying to figure out a way to take him down. To his dismay, this version of Doc Ock already faced off against a Spider-Man and might know his tricks.
We luckily also got a second image teasing Parker’s suit from Far From Home, which might become a stable design throughout the film. The Empire cover did tease a combination of both designs that he’ll wear at some point in the story. There’s also the black-gold suit that was teased through merchandise and briefly in the first trailer. It’s going to be interesting to see how he’ll juggle all these villains and different costumes throughout the potentially 150-minute long film.
