Marvel fans want many things that at one time seemed like Guajiro dreams. One of them is seeing all the cinematic Spider-Man together in an MCU movie. The trailer for Spider-Man: No Road Home gave wings to this dream with the appearance of Doctor Octopus and what appear to be references to Electro, Green Goblin, Sandman and a burly creature that could be Lizard and that the most optimistic they think it’s Venom.

Beyond that, he confirmed that the multiverse is definitely going to be part of the film’s plot with Doctor Strange as the trigger for his appearance on the film. The multiverse appears to be one of the central elements of the MCU Phase 4 tapes. The thing is, all this did not confirm the main wish of the red-bone-loving viewers of the arachnid hero. See the Parkers of the cinema in a single tape. Nor did it confirm one of the most persistent and denied rumors; the possible appearance of Charlie Cox playing Matt Murdock again.
The thing is, fans were so keen that this was not a mere dream that many swore they were in the trailer. In a brief moment of the trailer we can see that Parker is receiving legal advice from a mysterious figure in a white shirt and tie. You can’t see his face, but many fans are convinced that he is Matt Murdock himself. There are people who have gone to the extreme of looking at the hair on the arms to confirm that it is that actor.

The thing is that with the premiere of Shang-Chi and the legend of the ten rings – 95% in IMAX format also came the premiere of the same trailer in that format. Which meant that we could see the same scene, but in a greater proportion, which revealed several things that could not be observed in the original version. Among them, of course, the face of the aforementioned character, as observed by the Twitter user @ Gymblonski77:
I saw Shang-Chi in IMAX and before they ran the trailer for Spider-Man: No Road Home, and due to the increased aspect ratio, I could see the face behind the arms and I can confirm that it is not Charlie Cox as Daredevil.
The point is that it is not the only thing that could be seen more clearly. Many other things were exposed thanks to that version of the trailer. In fact, as We Got This Covered pointed out, it is now possible to see more of the appearance of Alfred Molina’s character, as well as the Sanctum Sanctorum:
When we first see Doc Ock on the bridge at the end of the trailer, we couldn’t initially see his belt, but thanks to the IMAX trailer a part of him is now visible. This might not be a big deal, but it’s good to see that the traditional character design has been brought back. Sadly there were no more references to villains that could be seen thanks to the power of the IMAX, but it did include a better look at Doctor Strange’s Sanctum Sanctorum.
On the other hand, the truth, it was already known that the villain with mechanical tentacles was going to appear in this film thanks to Alfred Molina. In April of this year the actor spoke of more in an interview for Variety. This was what he said:
It was wonderful. It was very interesting to come back after 17 years to play the same character, taking into account that now I have a double chin, crow’s feet and a very slight, but very slight, pain in my lower back. [En El Irlandés] They rejuvenated Robert De Niro’s face, but when he fought, he looked like an old man. He looks like an old man! That was what worried me about doing it again. I don’t have the same physical ability that I had 17 years ago. That’s a fact. Then I remembered that it’s the tentacles that do all the work!
