Spider-fans’ senses were tingling today as the Spider-Man: No Way Home leaked trailer made its way on Twitter. Although the original leaked video has been taken down by Sony faster than Peter can whip out webbing from his web-shooters, the leaked trailer is still available on Google search. Sony appears to be fighting a DMCA war with fans.
Spider-Man: No Way Home Trailer Leaked Online
Spider-Man: No Way Home was trending on Twitter as some accounts shared what appeared to be the long-awaited trailer for the upcoming third MCU Spidey film. Others reacted to the s-storm the alleged leaker might face for their action.
Sony did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Tweets that shared the Spider-Man: No Way Home trailer were taken down and given a copyright statement: “The media has been disabled in response to a report from the copyright owner.”
The Hollywood Reporter viewed the leaked trailer and verified that all its content were legitimate. Sony seems to be in situation where one video from a Twitter account would be blocked, another would share it.
The video shows someone screening the Spider-Man: No Way Home leaked trailer on their cellphone. The video has a watermark for the visual effects artist. The trailer further confirms the multiverse as Alfred Molina’s Doc Ock from Tobey Maguire’s Spider-Man 2 appears towards the end of the trailer.
“When we were shooting it, we were all under orders not to talk about it, because it was supposed to be some great big secret,” Molina told Variety in April of this year. But, you know, it’s all over the internet. I actually described myself as the worst kept secret in Hollywood!”
Though the Spider-Man: No Way Home leaked trailer shows Doctor Strange and the conflict Peter Parker will be facing, the video has some unfinished VFX. Some parts still looked like renderings of Spider-Man.
Spider-Man: No Way Home is set to premiere in theaters December 17. The trailer should come out before then.
