The worst adversary of big-budget blockbusters can occasionally be merchandise. There are frequently product leaks and releases that provide information on a specific project before it has been formally revealed since toys, collectibles, shirts, lunchboxes, and other items need to be produced before a movie is released in theatres. When it comes to the films produced by Marvel Studios, this is especially true.
A trio of LEGO sets have revealed some baffling details for Spider-Man: No Way Home before we’ve even seen a trailer for the follow-up. In addition to revealing a new Spider-Man suit for Tom Holland’s character, Peter Parker, these Spider-Man: No Way HomeLEGO sets also include some unexpected characters that aren’t any of the different Spider-Mans from earlier Sony Pictures film franchises, as rumours had claimed.
You should be aware that there may be spoilers in this article before we get into these Spider-Man: No Way Home LEGO sets. Let this last buffer of warning be this picture of Peter and his pals.
Spider-Man vs Mysterio’s Drone
We’re perplexed by this LEGO set right away. In it, Spider-Man shoots webs at a drone that Mysterio is piloting after he steals a ruby (not an Infinity Stone) for whatever reason. Nick Fury joins the fight in a small tactical vehicle with sirens.
Younger builders are the target audience for this little LEGO set. This set’s box art declares that it was “Inspired by Marvel Studios’ Spider-Man: Far From Home,” which would appear to suggest that this might be a scene from the movie. But it’s also possible that it’s just a LEGO set with the characters from the movie franchise in a fun setup that has nothing to do with the movie. We haven’t heard anything about Mysterio returning, after all.
Spider-Man’s Drone Duel
This additional LEGO kit, which is believed to be inspired by Spider-Man: Far From Home, features even more drone-fighting action. But in this scene, Spider-Man is not only swinging from a massive black and gold drone that is pursuing the evil Vulture; he is also swinging while donning a black and gold outfit.
What in the world is happening here? Considerably while it’s still obvious that this is for kids, this kit is even crazier than the one mentioned above and wasn’t made for younger builders. Again, there has been no indication on Vulture returning for this film or on Spider-Man receiving such a radical transformation in this sequel. We believe that this playset may be one of many that is just branded with Spider-Man: Far From Home but has no connection to the film. Alternatively, it might be Spider-Man and Vulture in a whole distinct Marvel universe.
Spider-Man at the Sanctum Workshop
Okay, this one looks like it could actually provide some insight into Spider-Man: No Way Home. With the Sorcerer Supreme and his dependable sidekick Wong, Spider-Man and MJ are in Doctor Strange’s Sanctum Santorum in this scene. They have to cope with a significant bug of some sort, as well as a number of intriguing objects from the mysterious area.
There have been rumours that after J. Jonah Jameson disclosed Peter Parker’s secret identity as Spider-Man in the Spider-Man: Far From Homecredits scene, he sought asylum with Doctor Strange in Spider-Man: No Way Home. After being identified as complicit in Spider-misdeeds, Man’s MJ and Ned follow him.
The most intriguing component of this set, outside all the beautiful little touches, is what appears to be a doorway leading to a hidden space. We have some idea of what might be behind the secret entrance thanks to plot rumours for Spider-Man: No Way Home, and it involves rumours that former Spider-Man franchise villains, including Alfred Molina as Doc Ock, Jamie Foxx as Electro, and Willem Dafoe as Green Goblin, who might be the movie’s main antagonist, are returning.
It appears like Marvel Studios is still keeping a lot of information regarding Spider-Man: No Way Home under wraps based on what is depicted in these LEGO kits. You’ll notice that there aren’t any signs of additional Spider-Men just yet. I’m guessing that part of the goods is being held back to prevent any further leaks about Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire’s conceivable involvement.
Since Spider-Man: No Way Home is scheduled to hit theatres on December 17, 2021, hopefully a trailer will be released before then. Maybe it will show up the week after Black Widow hits theatres. The three Spider-Man: No Way Home LEGO sets will all be available in October; more information is available at The LEGO Shop.
