We simply have to be close. Just based on what I know about movie release schedules, logic would suggest that the Spider-Man: No Way Home trailer should release any day now, as we are just four months out from the film’s release. Usually, when it comes to a movie of this size and importance, we would’ve had a trailer by now. Think about The Batman: when they dropped that electric trailer last summer, that was more than a full year ahead of its then-scheduled October 2021 release date (I believe it was October, don’t quote me — the release date of The Batman is now March 4, 2022).
The release of the No Way Home trailer has become such a hot topic of conversation amongst movie fans that it’s almost become like a meme — like a running joke. Everyone is in on it, even Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige, apparently.
During a recent interview with ComicBook, Feige was asked when fans can expect the No Way Home trailer and Feige’s response is certainly not the one fans were hoping to hear.
“Shang-Chi is coming out, the Eternals trailer just came out, but yes on December 17, we have the third in our Homecoming trilogy with Sony and Jon Watts and with Tom Holland,” Feige sai. “I can only guarantee there will be a trailer before the movie comes out.”
Well, gee, Kevin, thanks! To be honest, Feige’s response here has me more concerned about No Way Home‘s release date, as the response is crafted to be open-ended: it’s not like he said the trailer will come out before December 17 (the film’s current release date), but simply “before the movie comes out”, which sounds, to me, like he’s trying to keep the back door open in case they need to change the release date again.
Spider-Man: No Way Home — the fourth film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Phase 4 following Black Widow, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, and Eternals — stars Tom Holland, Zendaya, Benedict Cumberbatch, Jamie Foxx, Alfred Molina, Marisa Tomei as May Parker and perhaps a few more surprises, such as Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire as Spider-Man, although their returns have yet to be confirmed. At this time, the film is currently scheduled to hit theaters in the United States on Friday, December 17.
