Holland made a surprise appearance to present the trailer to the packed audience. Guided by panel host Coy Jandreau, Holland was reportedly moved to tears after the trailer played.

"To see it play out on the big screen is so rewarding. And to see your reaction means that we're doing something right. And trust me when I say, that is the the tip of the iceberg. There's so much more," Holland said eliciting cheers from fans.
Naturally, fans at home took to social media to share their reactions to the epic trailer, with many pointing out the visible absence of Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield's versions of Spider-Man.
However, others pointed out that seeing iconic villains like Doc Ock, Green Goblin, Electro, Sandman, and Lizard onscreen were enough.
I know everyone is dying to see Tobey Maguire & Andrew Garfield as am I but its great they haven’t shown them. The two goats with Tom should be experienced in the theaters not spoiled or wasted like nothing. Showcasing the classic villains is awesome enough!#SpiderManNoWayHome pic.twitter.com/hcZWGxwcXc— Alex Montes (@NotAlexMontes) November 17, 2021
Other fans zeroed in on Emma Stone's version of Gwen Stacy and her heartbreaking fall, with some speculating a possible redemption arc for Andrew Garfield.
MJ's telling Doctor Strange to say "Please" also became a fan favorite, along with the Sorcere Supreme's Scooby-Doo reference.
Another possible spoiler has fans hoping for a Garfield-Maguire-Holland trinity.
Some eagle-eyed fans pointed out the appereance of Captain America's shield in the cityscape.
