If you’ve been paying attention to the latest TV offerings from Marvel, Loki and What If…?, then it should be clear to you that Phase Four of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is going to be dealing heavily with the multiverse. But in case that wasn’t already obvious to you, then the first trailer for Spider-Man: No Way Home should really clear things up.

In the first look at the upcoming film, Peter Parker is dealing with the disastrous fallout from the conclusion of Spider-Man: Far From Home when Mysterio revealed the hero’s secret identity. The repercussions have been so destructive that Parker decides to see if his old pal Doctor Strange will cast a spell to make it as if the reveal never happened. Strange obliges, despite knowing the inherent dangers involved with such an incantation, and things predictably don’t work out. The spell inadvertently opens up the multiverse, allowing characters from Sony’s pre-MCU Spider-Man franchises to crossover into the MCU. And while rumored co-stars Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield don’t show up in the trailer, some other familiar faces and voices do. Have a look at the trailer yourself to see how many you can spot.
