The Lizard Spider-man no way home trailer

The Lizard punched in the face by John Cena in latest Spider-man trailer?

The latest Spider-man No Way Home trailer has officially dropped and it did not disappoint. Unless your expectations were ridiculously high but that’s on you.

Appearances from Green Goblin, Doctor Octopus, Electro, Sandman and The Lizard showed fans the villains in all their glory. But there was one strange piece of editing that some fans noticed while watching the trailer.

Who is punching the Lizard?

Immediately after the trailer was posted online, eagle-eyed fans scoured it for clues. Hoping to find the smallest hint of what to expect for when the movie is released on December 17th. And they seem to have found something in the Brazilian version of the trailer.

The scene above shows Tom Holland’s Spider-man fighting against Sandman, Electro and Lizard in a fight that seems super one-sided. A blink and you’ll miss it moment shows The Lizard reacting to being punched in the face by something invisible.

It could be John Cena or Drax but our money is on lazy editing. It makes sense that what is really happening in this scene is a 3 vs 3 battle. All three Spider-man – Tobey Maguire, Andrew Garfield and Tom Holland are fighting against the three villains. The editing team has just digitally removed them.

The fact that the trailer has since been changed to remove this part means this has an even higher possibility of being true.
