Peter Parker has a lot of hoops to jump through in Spider-Man: No Way Home. Not only does he have to fix the Multiversal mess he created with Doctor Strange’s help in order to make everyone forget that he’s Spider-Man, but he also has to get past the league of bad guys who want to widen the rip in the spacetime continuum. Today, Marvel has released three posters showing off Spidey’s iconic baddies: Doc Ock, Green Goblin, and Electro.

The new posters for No Way Home put each classic villain front and center, ready to give Spider-Man a run for his money and his sanity. After fans saw what Alfred Molina’s Doc Ock costume would look like in his interview with Empire Magazine last month, they began speculating over how Green Goblin and Electro would appear in the movie. The latest trailer gave us a glimpse of what they would look like, but now the posters are letting us see a closer view of their costumes and the actors wearing them.

Doc Ock is very obvious. Alfred Molina has been de-aged 20 years from his appearance in Tobey Maguire’s Spider-Man 2 in order to get back into his legendary villain role. He looks like he’s about ready to kill Spider-Man, breaking out his mechanical claws and giving him a confrontational death stare, like a middle-aged father about to ground his kid for life.

Green Goblin is confirmed to be reprised by Willem Dafoe. For his poster, Dafoe’s Norman Osborn slips back into the old Green Goblin costume he wore in Tobey Macguire’s first Spider-Man film in lieu of the upgraded costume that was shown in the trailer. He’s got his pumpkin bombs ready to make Spidey and Peter smell worse than a moldy pumpkin a week after Halloween.

Finally, there’s Electro coming into Spider-Man: No Way Home from Andrew Garfield’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Jamie Foxx, being the youngest actor among the trio of villains, didn’t need to be de-aged, as it has been eight years since he electrocuted Garfield’s dimension. He may not be able to recognize that Tom Holland is now wearing the Spidey suit, because to his menacing, electrifying eyes, he is still the same Spider-Man.

Earlier posters have implied that Doc Ock will be the main villain of Spider-Man: No Way Home, but Green Goblin and Electro joining the fray indicates that he won’t be alone in turning Peter Parker’s life upside down. Whether they’ll be mere obstacles standing in his way or well-rounded villains in their own right remains to be seen. Either way, three villains popping in from Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield’s respective Spider-Man realms might be better than seeing Maguire and Garfield standing in the same room as Tom Holland performing the famous Spider-Man doppelganger meme.

Doc Ock, Green Goblin, and Electro aren’t the only villains that Peter Parker will have to put up with in Spider-Man: No Way Home. The Lizard and Sandman are also dropping in to cause even more inter-dimensional damage. Three villains may be a crowd, but five is a bad party. Spider-Man: No Way Home comes out in theaters December 17. Tickets are selling out fast, and some fans are already fighting each other to buy them.
