On Sunday, Sony Pictures needed to act quickly to stop what appeared to be a leaked trailer for Spider-Man: No Way Home. The trailer first aired during Sony’s CinemaCon presentation in Las Vegas, and soon after, alleged bootleg versions of the trailer began to appear online.
Spider-Man: No Way Home became a Twitter trend after several accounts began sharing what appeared to be the trailer, and other users began reacting to the alleged leak’s widespread attention. Sony was clearly aware that this COULD happen, as tweets sharing the video were quickly taken down and accompanied by a copyright statement that read, “The media has been disabled in response to a report from the copyright owner.”
While I haven’t looked at the leak myself because I’d rather wait for the official release, “The Hollywood Reporter” did, and they believe the contents are genuine. There were no details provided about the video, but they did point out that Sony was blocking the video in a sitcom-like fashion, because as soon as one tweet was blocked, another would appear. The need for secrecy is especially important in this film because there has been a lot of speculation and rumours about what will happen in it, and they want to keep the element of surprise as long as possible.
Tom Holland, Zendaya, Jamie Foxx, Alfred Molina, Benedict Cumberbatch, Jacob Batalon, Marisa Tomei, and J.J. Smoove star in Spider-Man: No Way Home, which is directed by Jon Watts for the second time. While plot details are being kept under wraps, there is speculation that the film will deal with the multiverse in some way, which is why so many fans are eagerly awaiting the first trailer.
