What's Up With Doctor Strange In The 'Spider-Man: No Way Home' Trailer?

The first trailer for Spider-Man: No Way Home has arrived, and fans finally have an idea of what the highly-anticipated Marvel movie is about. Spider-Man's secret identity is now public knowledge following the events of Far From Home, and with Peter Parker's life greatly affected by the secret, he went to the one person he could think of powerful enough to reverse his luck. Peter heads to Doctor Strange's house and convinces him to cast a spell that makes everyone in the world forget that he was Spider-Man.

According to the trailer, this is what sets into motion the events that will send Peter Parker colliding with the multiverse and clashing with notable villains from other Spider-Man movies this Peter was never a part of. But there's absolutely something suspicious about the premise. Specifically, why on Earth did Doctor Strange cast that spell? Is this a Doctor Strange variant? CinemaBlend's Managing Editor Sean O'Connell breaks down what he thinks is going on with Doctor Strange in the No Way Home trailer.
