Spider-Man’s New MCU Status After The Events Of No Way Home


Warning: SPOILERS for Spider-Man: No Path Home are in play. If you haven’t seen the movie yet, you should definitely turn around to avoid learning the twists ahead.

I have to say that Spider-Man: No Path Home is absolutely a Christmas movie, for two huge reasons. Not only that latest marvel movie take place during the holiday season, giving him most of the evidence he needs to land this case, but it’s also kind of a spin on the MCU It’s a wonderful life. We say this because Peter Parker (Tom Holland) made a wish that everyone would forget about his existence, and unlike George Bailey, it came true. That leaves Spider-Man’s new MCU status following the events of No way home in a rather interesting place.

Most of Spider-Man’s story is still intact

The good news of sorts about Peter Parker’s wish is that, while not everyone knows who he is, Spider-Man is still very much in the public consciousness. In fact, we really don’t need to worry too much about most of what’s going on. before Spider-Man: Far From Home Parker released as the webhead itself. It’s a double-edged sword though, as the complicated life Peter once led has become even messier, though his costumed alter ego is unaffected by the massive end of his latest adventure.

This is going to be a very complicated situation, as Mr. Parker’s heroism endures, although his personal life is a blank slate. But hey, at least Spider-Man will be solely responsible for Mysterio’s death and not Peter Parker, right?

Spider-Man still exists, not Peter Parker

What happens when the hero you’re using as a cover exists, but technically you don’t count as a person? Well, as we saw in Spider-Man: No Way Home’s bittersweet end, Peter Parker needs to rebuild his life. With GED gear in his backpack as he settles into his new apartment, Tom Holland’s MCU hero is going to have to reconstruct his personal story.

Worse still, he’s going to have to find a job, because the state of his new excavations only reflects the worst of his current situation. For someone who was learning how difficult it is to juggle Spider-Man and Peter Parker, our friend, now depends on his high-flying antics to help him feel out of place in this corner of the multiverse.

Our friendly neighborhood Spider-Man has no resources

When Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) died in Avengers: Endgame, Peter Parker lost a valuable mentor who gave him resources beyond his wildest dreams. It was something we weren’t used to seeing Spider-Man take command, especially throughout his solo MCU endeavors.

Now, with Aunt May (Marisa Tomei) and Happy Hogan (Jon Favreau) dying having no idea who he is, Peter’s future past Spider-Man: No Path Home will sound a little more familiar. Now living in a dilapidated apartment and a short walk from working for The Daily Bugle, there is more the days of the iron spider suits, the laboratories of Stark Industries and even to have the Avengers as a support group. Speaking of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes …

The Avengers will finally have to rediscover who Spider-Man really is

Right now, all of the Avengers must be having a hard time trying to remember who Spider-Man was. Once again they will remember the adventures they have had with him since. its introduction in Captain America: Civil War all along Avengers: Endgame; so the big events will always be there. But imagine fighting alongside a costumed superhero in a group full of these type of people, and yet you don’t know the true identity of that individual.

Things are going to be a lot of fun for Peter Parker / Spider-Man as he’s going to have to introduce himself to his friends again. Peter is resourceful, but even he can’t hide from the Avengers; or anyone who really wants to “get to know” him in the field.

All of Spider-Man’s enemies are probably trying to kill him again

Spider-Man’s enemies are going to be another issue when it comes to Peter Parker’s new Lack of Identity Crisis. For example, take Adrian Toomes (Michael Keaton), because once he realized that Peter Parker was the costumed vigilante who foiled his personal operations in Spider-Man: Homecoming, he was more likely to keep his secret.

While he may still remember Spider-Man sparing his life, the fact that he didn’t know he was a teenager who once tried to date his daughter could become a problem and lead to a reunion. messy. Provided, of course, that his future appearance in Morbius does not further complicate this situation. The multiverse only increases the warnings that any event we see in the MCU will come, as it looks like Peter Parker has only been forgotten in this particular universe.

Peter Parker will likely be more careful about his personal relationships

While he was ready to introduce himself to Michelle (Zendaya) and Ned (Jacob Batalon) again, Peter Parker made the last-minute decision to spare his ex-girlfriend and ex-best friend the burden of knowing him. As we continue to carry Spider-Man’s great power and great responsibility, we’re likely going to see a Peter who will be even more cautious about having personal relationships afterward. No way home. He might not even try to make new friends or romantic relationships for a while after seeing what his life as a hero almost cost him and those he loved.

Grappling with moral lessons from Spider-Man: No Path Home, along with the loss of Aunt May that haunts him, Peter Parker’s status in the MCU seems to see him live like a ghost. Staying under the radar to not kill anyone out of simple association, but always leaping into action when his police scanner dictates, this new era of Spidey seeks to come close to the traditional incarnation that people know and love. Perhaps there will come a day when Mr. Parker will once again feel at ease with people; but knowing him, it will take a big event to force his hand to trust someone new in the future.

If you’re someone who likes to read about spoilers before going out to the theater, there’s no shame here. However, we would still recommend that if you haven’t seen Spider-Man: No Path Home however, you absolutely have to do it whenever you feel comfortable. The twists described above are all the better to see unfold against a backdrop of a massive blockbuster; and you miss a ton of new music by Michael Giacchino on a premium sound system if you don’t.
