Spider-Man: No Way Home (Trailer)

Spider-Man: No Way Home (Trailer)

The latest trailer for Spider-Man: No Way Home reveals a bit too much plot for our taste, but also gives us glimpses of several familiar villains from Peter’s multiverse. In addition to Doc Ock, expect appearances from Green Goblin, Sandman, Electro, and more. The jury’s still out if we’ll get Toby Maguire or Andrew Garfield, though.

Building an Iron Spider-Man Suit

Inspired by the nanotech “Iron Spider” suit seen in Spider-Man: No Way Home, JLaservideo wanted to see if he could replicate Spidey’s instantly-appearing, eight-legged outfit. J’s suit hides its appearance beneath a thermochromic pigment, and has inflatable tentacles that unfurl like those party horns.

When he’s not climbing buildings or battling Spider-Man with them, what does Doc Ock do with those extra tentacles? Well, when he’s in Germany, he dresses up in lederhosen and enjoys a couple of steins of cold beer. Prost!

Doc Ock Claw Machine

Doc Ock Claw Machine

Sculptor Steven Richter set himself the challenge of creating a mechanical claw machine based on Doc Ock’s tentacles from Spider-Man 2 and No Way Home. The build features cast resin parts and a cable-driven mechanism that lets an operator move the claw and grip objects with it. Plush Spidey doesn’t stand a chance.

100Bombs Studios dusted off footage from the 1990s Spider-Man animated series and edited it to match the audio from the Spider-Man: No Way Home trailer. Using scenes between Spidey, Doctor Strange, and Doc Ock, it syncs up surprisingly well.

After Mysterio reveals Spider-Man’s true identity, Peter Parker’s life is in chaos. So he asks his friend Doctor Strange to make everyone forget his secret identity. But Peter’s indecisiveness causes Doc’s spell to go wrong, opening a rift in space-time. No Way Home looks like a thrilling gateway to the Multiverse of Madness.

Swinging from Spider-Man Web-Shooters

Swinging from Spider-Man Web-Shooters

Over the past two years, engineer JT of Built IRL has been trying to figure out how to swing like Spider-Man. He eventually arrived at a compact web-shooter that uses compressed propane to fire cables, then realized he needed to wear several of them if he wanted to swing more than once. We love how he did his thesis on this.

As we’ve seen before, Ross The Random has a knack for turning bits of hardware into small works of art. In this video, he shows us how he took an old copper nozzle from a MIG welder and transformed it into a badass ring based on the visage of Spider-Man’s terrifying nemesis Carnage.

Testing Spider-Man’s Web IRL

Testing Spider-Man’s Web IRL

After proving it’s feasible to create web-like fibers from liquid, Built IRL uses an off-the-shelf woven fiber to test the ability for it to work like Spider-Man’s webs. The main engineering feat is the multi grappling hook design he came up with. He first uses the web to take down a bad guy, then swings from it after tossing it over a bar.

In the world of Spider-Man, Dr. Otto Octavius (better known as Doc Ock) has been augmented with a set of mechanical tentacles he uses for nefarious purposes. JLaservideo teamed up with a few internet friends to design and build a working tentacle backpack, and then gave it mind-control capabilities.

Hot Glue Web Shooter

Hot Glue Web Shooter

The stuff in Spider-Man’s web-shooters is strong enough to hold his body weight as he swings from building to building. While we wouldn’t trust hot glue to do the same, we still wouldn’t want to be a criminal on the business end of Joel Creates‘ web-slinger, which can even be worn while pulling off Spidey’s acrobatics.

Making Spidey’s Web Shooters

The Hacksmith teamed up with maker JT of Built IRL to create a real world version of Spider-Man’s web shooters. The rig uses compressed air to fire custom-made grappling hooks from its wearer’s wrists. Swinging from them isn’t nearly as graceful Peter Parker made it look.

Spider-Cat: Far from Spider-Man

Given the many permutations of Spider-Man out there, there’s it only stands to reason that a feline version is one of them. Watch as this web-slinging kitty faces off against Mysterio-Cat and Green Goblin-Cat to save the world. Kaipo Jones‘ silly short is just a small part of the MCU (Marvel Cat Universe.)
