Tuesday's Headlines | Spider-man News

Spider-Man: No Way Home, the third, perhaps final Spidey-MCU collaboration between Marvel Studios and Columbia Pictures, sets up a predicament for Peter Parker in which the world seemingly knows his secret identity following J. Jonah Jameson publicly airing the reveal in doctored footage by Mysterio at the end of Spider-Man: Far From Home.

Set photos from the filming of No Way Home reveal that Mysterio's revelation has become a hot topic for the public, while promotional art featuring a new costume for Spider-Man shows a growing magical connection between Peter Parker and Doctor Strange, likely tying into the upcoming Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.

And now, the official teaser trailer for Spider-Man: No Way Home has made the deeper connections between Strange and Spidey official (if not the idea of a magical Spider-suit). What's more, it sets the stage for a solution to Peter's problem that hews closer to one of the most controversial Marvel Comics stories ever than some longtime readers may find themselves comfortable with.

Because while Peter Parker's big problem, his secret life as Spider-Man being exposed, is new for the movie Spidey, it's an issue the hero has gone through and resolved in comic books - and the solution all comes back to Doctor Strange.
