Spider-Man: The final triology?

(NOT Spoiler Free)

On opening day, fans did not disappoint. Spider-man: No Way Home reached #3 on the biggest worldwide opening of all time, just behind Avengers: Endgame and Avengers: Infinity War. The film is currently #6 on the lifetime grosses with $1,740,845,239.

As the previews have revealed, Spider-Man: No Way Home brings in characters that we have long missed and takes us on a trip down Spider-Men nostalgia. Many were anticipating this movie because of the chance of the first Spider-Men appearing and this movie did not let us down. As much as we love Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield’s Spider-Man movies, it’s a fact to say they did not bring much impact to the overall MCU due to their lack of presence in the big picture plots. No Way Home sets up a plot for many more future MCU movies, most importantly multiverse.

Despite the movie being action-packed with all these characters we love, the camera never seems to lose focus of Tom Holland’s Peter Parker. The villains that return from the Sam Raimi and Marc Webb films don’t overcrowd the narrative as much as they speak to a theme that emerges in the film that ties this entire series back to the other ones. For a generation, the line about Spider-Man was “With great power comes great responsibility.” Spider-Man: No Way Home is about the modern Peter Parker learning what that means. 

As we all know, this is the final movie in Tom Holland’s Spider-Man trilogy, and if we consider the pattern of Tobey Maguire’s and Andrew Garfield (disregarding the completion of his triliogy), it will be the end of Holland’s Spider-Man. But according to the man himself, he doesnt see this as the last we will see of his Peter Parker. 

“We were all treating No Way Home as the end of a franchise, let’s say,” Holland tells Entertainment Weekly. “I think if we were lucky enough to dive into these characters again, you’d be seeing a very different version. It would no longer be the Homecoming trilogy. We would give it some time and try to build something different and tonally change the films. Whether that happens or not, I don’t know. But we were definitely treating No Way Home like it was coming to an end, and it felt like it.” 

Thankfully, this doesn’t necessarily mean that Holland’s take on Spider-Man is leaving the MCU. But it does seem that solo Spider-Man movies will be taking quite a long hiatus. There may be a few appearances throughout Marvel’s future movies but most likely displaying a new type of Spider-Man, an older and more mature superhero.
