A new Spider-Man: No Way Home toy suggests Doctor Strange in a casual superhero outfit. Even with three MCU movies still slated ahead of its release in December 2021, this hasn’t stopped anticipation from steadily mounting for Tom Holland’s third solo outing as the web-slinging superhero. The Sony-Marvel Studios collaboration will also bring back the other Homecoming usual suspects in Zendaya as MJ, Jacob Batalon as Ned, Tony Revolori as Flash Thompson, and Marisa Tomei as Aunt May.

With production complete, plot details for No Way Home are being kept tightly under wraps. It has been heavily speculated, however, that the Spider-Man film will be centered around the multiverse, especially with Benedict Cumberbatch co-starring as Doctor Strange as somewhat of a precursor to his own solo outing in The Multiverse of Madness. It has also been confirmed that No Way Home will include multiple characters from past Spider-Man franchises, including Alfred Molina’s Doc Ock from Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 2, and Jamie Foxx as Electro from The Amazing Spider-Man 2.

Now, new tie-in toys for the upcoming Spider-Man movie suggest a new superhero costume for Cumberbatch’s Sorcerer Supreme. A first look at the Funko Pop! figurines for the Marvel film reveal Stephen Strange’s new outfit. Oddly enough, he seems to be sporting a more casual look. While the Cloak of Levitation and Eye of Agamotto are still part of his ensemble, he is also wielding, of all things, a shovel. See Strange’s new Funko Pop! below:

In No Way Home, Doctor Strange will be making his first appearance in the MCU after last being seen during Avengers: Endgame’s final moments. When he does, it is hard to surmise what the sorcerer would need a shovel for. Although, it’s unclear if these new toys even depict costumes that are completely in line with the movie.

No Way Home wrapped production in March and since then there has been no indication as to when the film’s marketing campaign will truly commence. There have been a few looks at the film by way of stills, but nothing substantial as a trailer. A prominent rumor has been that the trailer will debut in theaters ahead of Black Widow screenings starting on July 9. Perhaps Marvel revealing a first look at the film’s tie-in toys now is a harbinger for the trailer to come. According to Marvel, these toys will be swinging into stores soon, but for fans, Spider-Man: No Way Home can’t come soon enough.
