A days after Spider-Man 3 trailer allegedly leaked online, makers released the first trailer of the much-anticipated film on Tuesday. With its focus on multiverse and Peter Parker-Dr Strange team-up, the trailer caught the fancy of fans. As it trended on social media all day, it also triggered a hilarious meme fest online.
The Spider-Man in No Way Home trailer shows Peter Parker on the run as the safety of his loved ones is compromised. Desperate to return to a time when very few people know that he is the Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man, he requests Dr Strange to reverse time. Although a big ask, Dr Strange still obliges.
However, it wasn’t Peter Parker than caught the attention of desi memers on Twitter. In fact it was Dr Strange played by Benedict Cumberbatch whose line became a fodder for memes. As in the trailer, he is seen saying to Holland, “That feels weird, but I’ll allow it”, netizens have been using it in relatable situations.
Using the dialogue in many awkward situations, like when when friends calls one by their full name to parents respecting their children’s opinion, desi tweeple have been using it various context that is quite familiar to us all.
Unless you needed any more convincing that Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is going to be massive, consider that Marvel Studios have released two streaming shows this year focused largely on setting it up.
Indeed, we’d known for some time that WandaVision would serve as a prologue of sorts to the upcoming blockbuster, with Elizabeth Olsen taking a co-starring role alongside a returning Benedict Cumberbatch.
Speaking at a virtual Paley Dialogue session last month, producer Kevin Feige said that the sequel will be an “evolution” of the story explored in the Disney Plus series – but not the end of it.
“That’s the first place where that story will continue but there will be other places,” he teased.
Since then, Loki has also aired a six-episode run that might well have torn apart the Marvel Universe as we know it, with the series finale creating a chaotic multiverse that seems intrinsically linked to the title of Strange’s upcoming sequel.
