On Dec. 17, Spider-Man: No Way Home was released exclusively in theaters. The highly anticipated film, directed by Jon Watts, completes the Spider-Man: Homecoming trilogy, starring Tom Holland as Spider-Man himself.
The movie takes place right when Spider-Man: Far From Home ends. When Mysterio (Jake Gyllenhaal) exposes Spider-Man’s identity as Peter Parker, Peter’s life becomes pure chaos. He is targeted by the media and is blamed for Mysterio’s death. Peter turns to fellow Avenger, Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch), for help. Doctor Strange has the ability to use magic to perform spells that can alter the universe. Because of this, he can execute a spell that will cause everyone to forget that Peter Parker is Spider-Man. When the spell is being formed, some complications are changed so that the people closest to Peter, MJ (Zendaya), Ned (Jacob Batalon), and Aunt May (Marisa Tomei) will still remember that he is Spider-Man. Once the spell is cast, villains from other Spider-Man universes suddenly appear in this universe. Peter and his companions must work together to heal the villains and return them to their own world.
This movie proves that Marvel movies continue to get better and better. From CGI animation to fascinating storylines, Marvel knows how to produce a great film. This movie exceeded the expectations of all Marvel fans.
The most exciting part of this film is the return of Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker/Spider-Man. Using Strange’s sling ring, Ned opens multiple portals that allow these other Spider-Men to come to this universe. They end up accompanying this universe’s Spider-Man to help with the return of the villains they once defeated themselves. Seeing all three Spider-Men work together to do this makes this one of the most iconic moves in movie history.
Spider-Man: No Way Home is basically a perfect movie from the fast-paced plot, emotion-provoking moments, and extraordinary characters. Because of this, it deserves a 5/5.
