‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ Teaser Hints At Something Sinister
At the end of the previous film, Spider-Man: Far From Home, Mysterio’s contingency plan was revealed in conjunction with the staff at The Daily Bugle: he not only successfully framed Spider-Man for the drone attack on London Bridge, but he also revealed his secret identity. Peter Parker now has to deal with a legal nightmare while the entire city knows that he’s Spider-Man, and in his desperation he seeks help from Doctor Strange. Peter hopes that Strange can use his magic to hide his secret identity once more, but in the process the spell, tied to the chaotic Multiverse, unleashes something sinister…
