Within the MCU, Holland’s Spider-Man made appearances in superhero team-up films Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame in 2018 and 2019, respectively, before embarking on his second solo feature film, Spider-Man: Far from Home,
in 2019. Much to Homecoming, Far from Home had Holland’s Parker embark on a class school trip to Europe while attempting to foil a terrible conspiracy that unfolds with the sudden presence of the enigmatic Mysterio (played by actor Jake Gyllenhaal). Far from Home received great reviews and was a box office success all over the world.
This solidified a new arrangement between Disney (which owns Marvel) and Sony Pictures, in which the character of Spider-Man will be explored further within the MCU. After three years,
Tom Holland’s Spider-Man returns in Spider-Man: Now Way Home, directed by Jon Watts and produced by Marvel Studios (in collaboration with Sony Pictures). Is this newest part in this new rendition of the famed webslinger comic book character a bloated and wasteful superhero film that sways too much in nostalgia and fan service, or is it just a bloated and superfluous superhero film with its last trip in the dubbed “Home” trilogy?
Spider-Man from everyone, allowing the young superhero to start over. When Strange’s spell goes awry, strange things start to happen, causing a disruption that opens the multiverse’s portals and welcomes anyone trying to kill Peter Parker into this realm. When Doctor Octopus (Alfred Molina) arrives to kill Spider-Man, Peter realizes that something strange and disastrous is going on.
As more malevolent entities enter our dimension, Peter and his pals appeal to Strange for assistance in restoring order, which sets in motion a chain of events that no one could have predicted, and something that will come at a heavy cost for the young superhero.
Tom Holland is set to reprise his role as Peter Parker in the sequel to Spider-Man: Homecoming. After that, there was a lot of speculation about what the third picture would be like, with some speculations claiming that prior Spider-Man characters would be involved. Soon after, a trailer for the film was released, revealing the first glimpses of the upcoming superhero film, which teased the return of several villains from previous Spider-Man films (including those from the Maguire and Garfield Spider-Man universes), as well as the plot’s focus on the multiverse.
The world has learned that Peter Parker (Tom Holland) is Spider-Man. Now he has to overcome the trouble being caused by this. Peter enlists the help of Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) for help. Doctor Strange removes this problem with his magic, but due to this many new problems come to the fore, which are now more dangerous and bigger.
As in Spider-Man’s previous film Far From Home, where Peter Park’s life changed, “No Way Home” moves from where it is important to keep Peter Parker’s truth hidden from the world. This is important not only to him, but to his friends and everyone else Peter loves. Peter needs help, he has to reach out to Doctor Strange. Wants something to happen that everything should be like before. The magician Doctor Strange uses his powers to force the world to forget Spider-Man’s identity, but the deal costs Peter.
Well, this isn’t the first time we’ve seen Spider-Man in Marvel’s multiverse. Earlier in ‘Into the Spider-Verse’ (2018), we saw many shocking things.
But interestingly, this time it is bigger than them all. This is Spider-Man’s third film in the MCU i.e. Marvel Cinematic Universe, which not only shows action, but also tries to connect the audience emotionally by going away from it. Director John Watts hasn’t done it all of a sudden on screen. On the big canvas of the film, he does this from time to time, exactly according to the situation. Due to this the length of the film also increases.
But director John Watts is not bothered by this. Although there are some scenes that fail to engage the audience, but in most of the scenes, he has been successful in making an emotional connect with the audience.
Naturally, I was enthusiastic for this, but I couldn’t help but think that the studios were simply going to “cash in” on nostalgia (which can be good or bad) and ride the coattails of Sony’s 2018 animated feature picture Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse by riffing on the multi-verse concept. Despite my reservations, I was quite excited to see No Way Home, especially since few information about the superhero project were released, and the internet continued to create anticipation and rumors up until the film’s debut. So, with a December 17th, 2021 publication date,
There are many characters in the film who are old. There are many new characters as well. Everyone has done their job well and are seen helping each other in fulfilling the director’s wish. Alfred Molina and Willem Dafoe reinforce in the film why Otto Octavius and Norman Osborne should be considered the most dangerous villains not only in Spider-Man films, but in the entire world of superheroes. Jamie Foxx’s character of Max Dillon/Electro has also been well redeemed in the screenplay of the film.
Peter Parker as Tom Holland faces some of his biggest challenges to date in the film. As an actor, he plays it well. Tom Holland proves that he has the ability to take the film forward even on his own. The rest of the cast of the film have also been given full space in this long film of 2 hours 28 minutes. The film is long, but the director has taken full advantage of this runtime.

After watching the previous Spider-Man movies, watching ‘No Way Home’ becomes easy for you. There are many things that you connect with the previous film..
However, it is true that “Spider-Man: No Way Home” is purely a mass-audience Spider-Man film. Spider-Man is a character in the Marvel Cinematic Universe who is like a good neighbor of yours. It is necessary and also entertaining. Marvel has tried that this smallest superhero of the team of Avengers gets a lot of love from the people. The film has been successful in making this impression.
Cinema is now a festival. Less than that, its magic won’t work. Hollywood has shown the charisma of turning cinema into a festival in the last decade. The decades-long pastime of making larger than life films is now speaking to the whole world.
These films create an atmosphere even before their release and watching a film in this environment becomes a necessity for every movie buff. The condition is that this magic should be such that it affects three generations simultaneously. Audiences who watched Spider-Man on Doordarshan and are now over or near fifty took their kids to theaters to watch Spider-Man.
These kids have now become the breadwinners of the house and are taking their kids to see Spiderman in 3D. Marvel’s new film ‘Spiderman: No Way Home’ brings these three generations together and manages to show its charisma.
This week’s celebration of the big screen brings back all the memories of the past. The villains have arrived, but whether the old hero, the old Spiderman, is also returning in ‘Spiderman: No Way Home’, you have to watch the movie. And, rest assured you will not be disappointed.
Finally, No Way Home has two secret Easter Egg moments during the end credits, one in the middle and the other at the very end, as is traditional for an MCU film. While I won’t give anything away about what is depicted in either of them, I will say that they are both excellent and set the seeds for something fresh and exciting to come in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. So make sure to have a look at them!
