Fans reckon the trailer for the new Spider-Man flick features a little nod to Gwen Stacy and her tragic death - see if you can spot it:

Since the trailer for Spider-Man: No Way Home dropped yesterday, people have been trawling through it to find Easter eggs and potential twists.

One such discovery is a scene that appears to pay tribute to Gwen Stacy, who was Peter Parker's first love interest before she was cruelly killed off by the Green Goblin.

In the trailer for the web-slinger's new instalment, we see a moment that seems to be a reference to that very moment, with Zendaya's Mary Jane falling from scaffolding as Tom Holland's Spidey leaps down to try and catch her - their hands reaching for one another as she plummets in slow-motion.

1973's Amazing Spider-Man #112 saw Gwen Stacy die in very similar circumstances after being thrown off a New York City bridge by the Green Goblin. Spider-Man tried to save her but was sadly unsuccessful.


After seeing the sequence, which comes towards the end of the trailer, Gwen's character started trending on Twitter as fans compared her death with Mary Jane's fall.

One person said: "I'm calling it, I think Andrew's Spider-Man is going to end up saving MJ because this scene gave me major Gwen Stacy vibes. #SpiderManNoWayHomeTrailer2."

Someone else commented: "NOT GWEN STACY'S DEATH CALLBACK WITH MJ #SpiderManNoWayHome."


Many also joked about what Gwen would say if she could see her former love managing to rescue someone else after failing to save her.

People also noticed there was no Andrew Garfield or Tobey Maguire in the trailer, despite growing speculation and supposed photo leaks that seemed to suggest that the new film would see their Spider-Men team up with Holland's.

However, a few believe that the duo will be in the film, they've simply been edited out of the trailer as a bit of a bluff, having posted a screengrab from a fight scene where two of the three villains appeared to be fighting with... no one.

Spider-Man: No Way Home will be released in cinemas worldwide on 17 December.
