Fans have been rallying for a trailer for months, considering the size and scope of No Way Home. A trailer release date of August 23rd now ensures No Way Home will have one of the smallets windows in the MCU from the time a movie’s first teaser was release to the time that same project entered theaters.
“Sony is absolutely handling the marketing for Spider-Man. Kevin Feige and his team are closely partnering with the Sony team on those. So there is coordination in that sense,” Walt Disney Studios marketing president Asad Ayaz recently told The Hollywood Reporter. “We also make sure we are aware of who is dropping what when. But we are not working together on the campaigns because it’s their film. They are handling it but there is a level of coordination to make sure that it’s a win-win for everybody.”
The movie’s latest synopsis can be found below.
“For the first time in the cinematic history of Spider-Man, our friendly neighborhood hero is unmasked and no longer able to separate his normal life from the high-stakes of being a Super Hero. When he asks for help from Doctor Strange the stakes become even more dangerous, forcing him to discover what it truly means to be Spider-Man.”
