What this means for the MCU

Rejoice! It’s finally time for all of us discuss and parse spoilers for Spider-Man: No Way Home. Not just speculation either. actually, real things that happen in the movie. And while it may seem like No Way Home is a movie fans figured long before a single frame was released, we now know that’s partly true, and partly not. Below, we’ll talk about the film’s biggest events and what they could mean for the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Let’s start with the big one. The ones we all knew a little bit and didn’t think were possible, but secretly hoped it was. And that’s that Doctor Strange and Spider-Man shattering the multiverse actually bring into this world the two other live-action Spider-Men played by Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield. And I mean, let’s take a moment to acknowledge how incredible this is. Who knows how much money these guys got to return, but the fact that they’re revisiting these roles in the service of this story is really something. Plus, and me couldn’t say this in my review but i can now, the scenes between the three of them were an absolute delight. The humor, the callbacks, the emotions, it’s all perfect. Seriously, No Way Home is a good movie at best until Garfield and Maguire show up, and then the whole thing takes another level.

And while we all suspected they were coming, how they arrived was a surprise in itself. That it was Ned who stole Doctor Strange’s sling ring, which has the ability to open portals to other parts of the city that the other Peter’s let through. Pair Ned’s newfound ability with a very brief glimpse of what appears to be a green suit at MJ’s apartment, as well as a bunch of knives, and you get a sense of Peter Parker’s friends (or, ex-friends, where we’re at will watch) may have heroic aspirations of their own.

However, the biggest point of discussion with the new Peters isn’t what’s happening in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Once the three Peters bravely save the city from Doc Ock, Green Goblin, Sandman, Lizard and Electro, everyone returns to their dimensions. That is it. And yet it is not. The Spider-Men don’t defeat the villains in the traditional sense, they fix them and basically remove all their evil tendencies. So if all those characters go back to their universe, we assume they will no longer be bad. But when are they going back? Do they go back to the time of their death, which seems to be when they came through? Or are they going back now, a few years later, if they’re already dead? How will any of those things fit into that reality or affect the lives of the other Spider-Men?

But honestly? I don’t think that will ever be covered. You get the feeling that this was Sony and Marvel’s only big chance to bring those movies into this universe and now they have it. That’s great, but there’s no question that the implications almost certainly ruin those realities. Maybe something like Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse can handle it, but we’re not sure. Our best guess is that we will never see Peter 2 and Peter 3 again. If you don’t agree, let us know below.

Of course, once everyone goes back to their dimensions, there’s still the problem of the multiverse sucking up every Spider-villain ever in this world to take care of. (In the shadows you’ve definitely seen Rhino, and probably some others too, let’s know who you’ve seen below). Peter – Tom Holland’s – realizes that the only way to stop humans from traveling through dimensions to kill Peter Parker is that Peter Parker doesn’t exist. So he asks Strange to erase all memories of Peter Parker from the world, including his friend MJ and Ned.

My first thought about this was that Peter wouldn’t have done it if Aunt May was still alive. That Aunt May, his only real family we know, was murdered earlier in the film allowed him to make such a hard, selfless decision. Now, as the other Peter said, she really didn’t die in vain. Once you get past that, the choice makes sense as a solution, but it greatly complicates the story in the future. The ensuing scene reveals that the world still remembers Spider-Man, he’s still there, just not that Peter Parker is Spider-Man. And that’s because literally no one knows who Peter Parker is now. He does not exist.

That puts Peter off in so many ways. Not only as a hero, but also as a person. What about bank accounts, possible inheritance, school, just super-duper basics of existence? These all seem like very big mountains to climb if you don’t have an identity. The film actually obscures that as we see that Peter now has his own apartment (with what money?) and is studying for the GED. So presumably losing his identity didn’t mean high school anymore, but he still plans to continue his education. He has a plan. But it’s all a bit confusing to say the least.

There’s also that new suit to think about. From a comic book fan’s perspective, that the movie ends with Peter now wearing a homemade Spider-Man suit feels like the entire run in the MCU until now was an origin story for him to become the Spider-Man of the comics . Now he finally has the confidence to go it alone. And yet, was he forced to make that decision because the Stark suits were coded to Peter Parker and now Peter Parker doesn’t exist? Does Strange’s magic work with technology too? You would assume, and if it does, it makes that decision a little less powerful.

Speaking of which, on a grander scale, is Spider-Man still an Avenger? Of course, there’s no guarantee that the Avengers will even exist without Iron Man, Captain America, and Black Widow, but now no one knows who Peter Parker is. Does he just go to Nick Fury, take off his mask and introduce himself again? How would anyone react to that?

Really, you could go on and on about how the ending of this movie will go. What we do know is that Spider-Man is back at the starting line in the MCU. An anonymous hero with the world at his feet. Does he choose to keep it at the neighborhood level, or will it get bigger? We’ll find out eventually. Tell us below what you think of the big reveals and sequels in Spider-Man: No Way Home.
