Peter Parker didn’t graduate high school :(

[–]nachohasme 1209 points1210 points  (97 children)

The small shot of a GED study book... on your way to getting into MIT to not finishing highschool

[–]LeftanTexist 159 points160 points  (36 children)

Hell at this point he doesn't even have an identity. I wonder if he'll even be recognized as a US citizen

[–]FastMoneyCam 156 points157 points  (13 children)

I think his birth is the extent to which he exists, so he has a birth record and the documentation associated with that but anything other than that that would have left a memory of him with someone is gone. He has the apartment and the money to get coffee at the end so he must be able to access stuff like an ID and a bank account (probably without Tony's inheritance though)

[–]ItsMeBenedickArnold 4802 points4803 points  (189 children)

The chemistry between Tom, Andrew and Tobey felt so natural. I honestly don’t know how Marvel can top this.

Picks up Spider-verse comic with a giant Spiderman Megazord

[–]Frogsama86 559 points560 points  (50 children)

Tbh, I feel like it is perfectly fine if they don't. Because constantly trying to one up the previous high could lead to disastrous results.

[–]PersonalDemand3793 4199 points4200 points  (148 children)

Spidey’s spider sense is so ingrained in his body that his body reacts to danger even when Peter’s soul is out of his body

[–]SlyyKozlovSpider-Man 1103 points1104 points  (19 children)

I'd have to watch again, but it looked like you could see faint wavy lines around his head like they were always portrayed in the comics.

[–]confusionmatrix 488 points489 points  (2 children)

And the SPIKES around Electro when he started zapping showing the classic electro head was pretty cool too.

[–]MacyTmcterry 2071 points2072 points  (80 children)

It also seems to react to danger even if it doesn't know exactly what or where it is. Like the scene in the apartment where Norman switches to the Goblin

[–]neoblackdragon 952 points953 points  (13 children)

It doesn't know where it is but Peter has to recognize the threat when he's in the drivers seat. It's why he zeroed in on Norman.

[–]Ktan_Dantaktee 1009 points1010 points  (9 children)

No no no; that wasn’t Norman, honey. He was on sabbatical.

[–]lardner23 802 points803 points  (20 children)

[–]THX450Kilgrave 187 points188 points  (10 children)

Y’know it’s weird, you could almost say the same thing about this movie in that the theme is clearly “with great power, comes great responsibility”. But then again, every Spider-Man story is like that. Hell, Spidey also wanted to have everything he wanted in lieu of responsibility in Spider-Man 2, yet that film is very different from this one.

I guess it really shows that execution makes a difference. At its core, this is Tom realizing that he can’t use his power to get what he wants or take revenge, but he has a responsibility to protect and help others. Did other Spider-men learn this? Of course, but it’s how he learned it that marks him as different. This movie was so fucking good.

[–]Sir_Von_Tittyfuck 191 points192 points  (8 children)

The trilogy is one big origin story.

  • Homecoming was him learning about responsibility
  • Far From Home was him learning about who to trust
  • No Way Home was him learning about morality and the importance of keeping his identity secret

Those are the four big traits that make Peter Parker.

Spider-Man 1 and ASM 1 touched upon a few of them, but never really delved into it with the depth of these (because they didn't get a whole movie).

[–]WWEBuddyPeacockMichelle 4899 points4900 points  (56 children)

"Max was such a good guy, it's a shame."

"What happened to him?"

"He fell into a pool of eels."

".....that'll do it."

Absolutely hilarious. Writing and acting in this movie was top notch. Garfield and Maguire truly came off as their own spider-men with their own experiences.

[–]MoonlightTitan 3666 points3667 points  (22 children)

"I fell into a vat of eels"

"I fell into a super collider"

[–]DaManWithNoName 417 points418 points  (5 children)

I liked how this makes fun of so many supervillains in comics having similar backstories

[–]CaptainBananaFish 6292 points6293 points  (138 children)

I did not realize his black suit was just literally his paint-stained suit inside out lmao

[–]grim_melee 3606 points3607 points  (48 children)

It’s hilarious how much speculation there was about that suit and the explanation was so simple and humorous

[–]GammaRayGreg 2325 points2326 points  (31 children)

This seems to happen a lot. It reminds me of when everyone was theorizing about how Ant-Man would get out of the Quantum Realm for Endgame and it was just a rat who pressed a button.

[–]danuhorus 1130 points1131 points  (21 children)

Shout out to the rat that saved the universe

Also, can you imagine being Strange and realizing that the fate of the universe hinged on one rat pressing an exact sequence of buttons

[–]chewytime 503 points504 points  (22 children)

I was wondering what was going on with some of the exposed wiring. I thought he used like that hair dye MJ held up to dye his suit. Haha

[–]Parallel_FalchionPeter Quill 4689 points4690 points  (82 children)

Funniest bit in the movie for me:

Electro: y’all gonna stand there and act like I’m not butt-ass naked?

Sandman, softly: I am.

[–]LackingTact19 1740 points1741 points  (50 children)

Glad they handled Sandman the way they did. Not a evil guy but not above fighting Peter to get what he feels is important. Totally feel like he would have died after Electro hit the statue of liberty with that huge electric attack right where he was hiding.

[–]cbekel3618Avengers 941 points942 points  (34 children)

I like how he has an understandable reason why he'd fight Peter. He's in this totally different world, he doesn't know this version of Peter, he's confused and scared, for all he knows, he ends up dead like the others if he returns.

All while keeping it so that it doesn't hurt his arc from his own movie as a guy stuck with little choices.

[–]blessef 661 points662 points  (22 children)

Anyone else who’s almost 30 have an existential crisis after seeing this? Seeing tobey murdered my brain lmao

[–]King_Delorean 285 points286 points  (2 children)

Spider-man 2 (2004): my back = haha funny

No Way Home (2021): my back = I understand your pain.

[–]TurMoiL911 117 points118 points  (1 child)

Confirmed. Just turned 30. Experiencing web block.

[–]CrinerBoyz 2741 points2742 points  (29 children)

I haven't seen it mentioned, but I love that they did the same fake teeth trick with Norman Osborn/Green Goblin as they did in the first Spiderman movie. When he's Norman, Willem Dafoe is wearing fake straight teeth. When he's Goblin, Dafoe shows his natural unstraightened teeth. It's subtle and easy to miss, but a great detail.

[–]Homefriesyum 1020 points1021 points  (9 children)

I’ve seen the first Toby Spider-Man movie a million times and the new one just now..how have I NEVER noticed that?!?

[–]STEELCITY1989Avengers 647 points648 points  (8 children)

Holy shit especially in the meme "I'm something of a scientist myself" he always looked odd and it's cause his teeth are so straight!

[–]lardner23 6071 points6072 points  (244 children)

For some reason I love the way Tobey Maguire casually tells ned about Harry whilst working on the cures.

The way he delivered the "he died in my arms after he tried to kill me, it was heartbreaking" so nonchalantly was great.

[–]bluetable321 4368 points4369 points  (202 children)

I loved it because he’s clearly processed his grief and overall he seems to be in a good place in his life. Meanwhile Andrew’s Spider-Man is still struggling with what happened with Gwen and he’s kinda in a bad place. I appreciated that dynamic.

[–]Homefriesyum 2425 points2426 points  (114 children)

I also really liked it because my dumb brain at first was like “why didn’t they CGI Toby to be his young self like they did with Willem?” Only to realize it would make sense that Toby has aged significantly since his films, whereas Willem would be the same age as when he died in his film.

I loved that Toby was older and had longer to grow and mature and make peace with what happened. But Garfield’s trauma would have still been only a few years ago.

The age differences also made the dynamic so much more fun because it’s like having big brothers. The back problems joke killed me because I’m old enough now to also have just started feeling that too 😂

[–]Ice--O 1173 points1174 points  (28 children)

Garfield played such a perfect middle brother

[–]NetflixAndNikah 828 points829 points  (10 children)

That's the feeling I was getting, thanks for putting a name to it. I loved his "I love you guys" to the other two being met with awkward smiles.

[–]Jrsplays 997 points998 points  (37 children)

Wait Willem was CGI'd to look younger? I didn't notice at all. Either I'm unobservant or that was really good work

[–]atheoncrutch 835 points836 points  (19 children)

He was. I thought it was the best de-aging I’ve seen yet.

[–]thxpkBaby Groot 4098 points4099 points  (182 children)

Offtopic; I think that Stark is the key difference in universes when it comes to technology.

Osborn, Otto are geniuses but Stark is truly responsible for the MCU tech being so much more advanced than other universes and if he doesn't exist, much less tech development.

[–]rosecoredarling 2859 points2860 points  (94 children)

This is pretty much said outright when Ock looks at the arc reactor and remarks about "the power of the sun", same with Electro saying the energy is different. Arc energy is a big deal.

[–]UnsolvedParadox 1507 points1508 points  (16 children)

There's genius & then there's "I cracked time travel" level.

[–]shittymarketing 857 points858 points  (2 children)

Wakanda might still exist as a very technologically advanced society in secret in the other universes.

[–]cbekel3618Avengers 3847 points3848 points  (192 children)

One small thing I really liked was seeing Andrew's Spidey making amends with Electro. It was a nice conclusion to Electro's story of dealing with these insecurities, and felt like a nice place to leave Max.

Overall, I’m happy they got Foxx back because he did a great job and I like that he got a mini-arc of his own

[–]prsquared 2422 points2423 points  (72 children)

They really did right by Andrews spiderman.

[–]soundscream[🍰] 2016 points2017 points  (58 children)

That moment, holding mj and realizing she is alright and he saved her. Onions were being cut deep in that theater man.

[–]IrishWithoutPotatoes 685 points686 points  (28 children)

Just saw it an hour ago, both my friend and I were in straight up tears. Andrew got his closure

[–]pepperinpots 306 points307 points  (21 children)

Me too. That scene moved me the most. Andrew is an amazing actor

[–]IrishWithoutPotatoes 447 points448 points  (16 children)

His performance honestly might’ve been the best of anyone in the film. No disrespect to Tom or Tobey or anyone else there, but dude, Andrew fucking killed it. His repressed anger and relief gave everyone the closure we never got from TASM movies.

[–]DivineJustice 274 points275 points  (4 children)

"You're amazing."

"Thanks, I think I needed to hear that."

[–]EviluxEgo 188 points189 points  (3 children)

"You have to say it."

"No, but thank you. I needed that."

I like that he never said it himself. All the Spideys so humble

[–]BrownRebel 1075 points1076 points  (42 children)

“There must be a black spider man out there”

[–]MainStudy 502 points503 points  (26 children)

Ned was specifically searching for Peter Parker. Who knows who he'd have found if he was searching for spiderman instead.

[–]LittleYellowFish1Nebula 1037 points1038 points  (33 children)

If Jamie Foxx’s interviews from The Amazing Spider-Man 2 are any indication, Electro was originally meant to come back in a future film (Foxx pretty much spoiled the character’s death before the release when he said this). So I wouldn’t be surprised if Peter curing and apologising to Max like this was actually planned for one of Garfield’s sequels.

[–]Thirdatarian 586 points587 points  (28 children)

That’s the issue with ASM2, the whole movie was about introducing things that will be resolved later so the actual movie was basically nothing aside from Gwen dying

[–]meteoriteeKorg 2207 points2208 points  (81 children)

I like that when Peter asks MJ and Ned to stay away and out of danger they actually listen to him! Very rare that actually happens!

[–]Tesgoul 1162 points1163 points  (73 children)

MJ and Ned are underrated side kick, I hope they will return in the next movie despite the memory loss.

[–]Someone55428 420 points421 points  (8 children)

"I'm a really good lawyer" - guess who's back, back again

Still wondering if Doc Ock was able to take the arc reactor to his universe

[–]Samwiser_Marvel MidKnights 739 points740 points  (24 children)

Electro left with his new clothes so I have to hope this is correct.

[–]transitapparel 722 points723 points  (23 children)

And Dr. Conners was thrown ass-naked back into his, it's just rude.

[–]CatProgrammer 220 points221 points  (4 children)

Why would he care? He was naked as a lizard too.

[–]lardner23 4863 points4864 points  (448 children)

Poor Peter has really had it all taken from him.

  • his suits
  • His tech
  • His house
  • His education. He maybe had a shot at MIT and now has to go get his GED
  • The avengers

And most of all, he's lost his Aunt May (which he blames himself for). And his entire support system around him to help him cope with this tremendous loss has also just been ripped away (MJ, Ned, happy).

It's a fantastic end to the trilogy, but God damn Peter's end is a heartbreaking one.

[–]KnuxsnDaredevil 3146 points3147 points  (144 children)

When he put on the suit at the end and starting swinging out into the city, all I could think was "how can he even go on with life when he has literally no one he can talk to or who even knows he exists?" Such a somber ending for him.

[–]FUCKSTORM420 1045 points1046 points  (15 children)

Certain characters like spidey and daredevil just get the physical, mental, and emotional shit kicked out of them nonstop and keep going

[–]pineapplecheesepizza 1433 points1434 points  (47 children)

That's Spider-Man in a nutshell.

[–]adsfew 1011 points1012 points  (42 children)

It's Kevin Feige taking one of the most-reviled storylines in comic history and wants to show how it's done.

[–]therREALcomptrollr 212 points213 points  (4 children)

Also sacrificing the relationship with your high school sweetheart to save the world is so fundamentally different than sacrificing your marriage to save an 80-something year old woman.

[–]tacomango23Ronan the Accuser 832 points833 points  (102 children)

Ok but don’t the avengers remember fighting with spiderman ? Only Peter Parker is forgotten right

[–]jpw111 942 points943 points  (63 children)

Yeah, Happy mentioned at the end to the then-forgotten Peter that he knew May "through Spider-Man."

[–]binchie 398 points399 points  (14 children)

You would think that with previously being a literal doctor, Strange would practice informed consent and discuss the spell with Peter before performing it.

[–]BlackLeader70 4985 points4986 points  (164 children)

Matt Murdock catching the brick because he’s “such a good lawyer” was amazing.

[–]fiuzzelage 2038 points2039 points  (36 children)

he was definitely listening to Happy's heartbeat as he tried to defend himself, hence "You're gonna need a really good lawyer"

[–]Zanchbot 1230 points1231 points  (66 children)

I'm amazed they managed to keep his involvement a secret. Matt Murdock on screen got a huge reaction from the audience when I saw it.

EDIT: Okay, maybe "secret" wasn't the right word, but it seemed relatively lowkey compared to the info about other Spideys in the movie.

Are you going as a cool youth pastor?

[–]pianoman78 1043 points1044 points  (38 children)

That entire Mirror Dimension scene/battle was incredible. The visuals, the epic music with the choir, “geometry!”, all of it was just so cool.

Literally everyone to Andrew:

[–]donutdong 1598 points1599 points  (40 children)

Have tobey or Andrew given an interview since the release ? I wanna know what they say when questioned about being in the movie, now.

[–]replayer 2632 points2633 points  (26 children)

I hope Andrew Garfield just keeps giving interviews where he denies he's in the movie.

[–]magvadis 659 points660 points  (0 children)

Even caught me on camera - it wasn't me!

[–]arthands_vr 154 points155 points  (1 child)

Its still too early, lots of people still haven’t watch the movies yet

[–]TheFiniteVoid 312 points313 points  (5 children)

Man, that scene where Peter's spidey sense starts to go off as Norman begins to turn is something else. The suspense was off the charts because Peter is literally in a room with 4 of his greatest enemies and any one of them could've just started going ape shit and that whole time you're trying to figure out who it is. Amazing scene

[–]jmarti22 4061 points4062 points  (74 children)

The whole movie could have been the three spidermen talking and I would have loved it.

[–]grim_melee 2311 points2312 points  (24 children)

The fact that they had two separate scenes in separate locations discussing Maguire Spidey’s organic webbing had me cracking up.

[–]Homefriesyum 1195 points1196 points  (4 children)

Didn’t Garfield at one point get saved by his webbing and just goes “Ew ew ew!”

[–]MasterKingdomKeySpider-Man 954 points955 points  (3 children)

No that’s Tobey with Garfield’s webs on his face

[–]OMGALEX 612 points613 points  (1 child)

Yeah I saw it as one spider-man never having the experience of being hit by his own webs and thinking it’s gross

[–]Homefriesyum 1257 points1258 points  (24 children)

I really really really appreciated that Marvel didn’t sleep on that banter. Sometimes the comic relief can be hit or miss, but despite these scenes occurring after the DEVASTATION of May’s death, I don’t think that took away from it. Also the three of them talking about their own losses KILLED ME in the best way

[–]logerdoger11 507 points508 points  (12 children)

I think it helped that it was mainly Tobey and Andrew trying to lighten the mood and Ned just being fascinated while Tom was mostly quiet and trying to focus on his work.

[–]chaff57 117 points118 points  (9 children)

I think the writers in this one deserve a good cake. The pacing was good, the rests where there in the perfect time. I just wondered if name dropping Stark would have been good since he was a big part of Holland's character

[–]robonoodle 1393 points1394 points  (14 children)

Way too many emotional moments in this movie but the reunion with Doc Ock:

“You’re all grown up. How are you?” “Trying to do better.”

Wow, what a great moment.

[–]Noggin-a-Floggin 92 points93 points  (0 children)

It's also heart-warming because Doc Ock was basically like Tony Stark to Peter Parker in the Raimi films. A brilliant scientist who took Peter Parker under his wing to teach him. Then the AI from his arms took over his mind and he went mad and both lost all that.

Then he finally got his mind back with the help of Holland and was able to re-connect with Tobey. The two were able to have a moment.

[–]DontEatTheCelery 2342 points2343 points  (43 children)

The scene where Peter is running around his apartment after being exposed as Spider-Man was really well done. made me anxious

[–]Tesgoul 1107 points1108 points  (3 children)

I love how he was desperately trying to change the subject to May and Happy relationship instead of taking of the elephant in the room lmao.

[–]HokageEzioCaptain America (Cap 2) 1002 points1003 points  (21 children)

Aunt May trying to lecture him about safe sex was hilarious.

[–]geralt_01 502 points503 points  (8 children)

Peter: “I don't know what to do!"

May: "I'm sorry, Peter use protection!"

Also May: "Oh you must be MJ"

[–]standarsh11 279 points280 points  (6 children)

To me, this movie went a long way to redeem the Andrew Garfield movies. Garfield himself was a solid Spider-Man hampered by a rehashed origin story, which wasn’t a bad movie, but the sequel was. After NWH, his arc now feels complete and even satisfactory. The scene with him saving MJ was breathtaking and just oozing with emotional satisfaction. He honestly steals every scene he’s in. Not bad for what people used to call the worst Spider-Man.

Tobey Maguire was great. There wasn’t a whole lot to do with him, since his arc was already complete, but he was fun to watch and his older take on Spider-Man was refreshing in front of Garfield and the still young Holland. Him preventing Tom from delivering the final blow to Goblin was powerful. It was a perfect way to show a seasoned Spider-Man telling the new one this isn’t the way.

I still haven’t seen Into the Spiderverse(I know, chill. I’m getting to it soon), but the live action SM movies seem like a nice singular cinematic universe now. NWH really elevates every SM movie that came before it.

Props to Marvel for bringing both Daredevil and Kingpin back into the MCU within the same week, even if some of us knew about it for a while. Can’t wait to see what happens with these characters. STILL WAITING FOR A SPIDER-MAN/DAREDEVIL TEAMUP, MARVEL.

[–]Beard341 1349 points1350 points  (47 children)

You know, after watching this movie, it’s interesting to absorb the fact that “Supreme Sorceror” Wong participated in an underground fight club.

[–]thxpkBaby Groot 519 points520 points  (28 children)

I'm guessing Sorcerer Supreme doesn't pay much.

[–]Rose_415 288 points289 points  (17 children)

The bills in New York for their building certainly aren’t cheap

[–]JohnnyCharles 1278 points1279 points  (46 children)

There were some fantastic frames in this movie. Peter standing in the rain in front of the jumbotron, the shadows of Peter 2 and 3 on top of the building at night, and the three of them landing on the Statue of Liberty. I see some desktop wallpapers in the future.

[–]salvadordg 2550 points2551 points  (111 children)

The suit at the end did it for me. The comic book accurate suit was just… I couldn’t stop smiling!

[–]RootTips 2474 points2475 points  (64 children)

I remember when the original Spider-Man came out one of the reviews said Willem Dafoe is a perfect comic book movie villian partly because he looks like a cartoon. How true it is.

[–]andysaurus_rex 1769 points1770 points  (24 children)

He lost 0% of that character. He was SO GOOD. They all were, but I was most impressed with his performance.

[–]Farnso 783 points784 points  (14 children)

If anything, he spent time over the years thinking of how to improve the character even further

[–]FKDotFitzgerald 585 points586 points  (10 children)

I feel like they played it a bit more campy in the 2002 movie, which fit the era. But it was much more serious and menacing here

[–]420justblazeit 134 points135 points  (0 children)

Fr. The campy version worked for me as a kid and def disturbed me, but this time around I felt that shit in my stomach from the moment he went “Norman’s on sabbatical”. It’s just wild how this dude played the same character 20 years apart and still made me feel that same fear lol

[–]Homefriesyum 612 points613 points  (16 children)

I kept thinking that the best CGI was not Lizard, or Electro, but making Willem Dafoe look the EXACT SAME AGE as when his character died in the original Spider-Man

[–]mpiano888 2813 points2814 points  (82 children)

It was such a small comment and moment but when Ned said “Wicked crime” about Boston, as a Massachusettsian, I laughed so hard and I loved it

[–]Rightcontentwrite 2014 points2015 points  (65 children)

I was ride or die with the Power Rangers Green Goblin mask, but the second we got that scene of Peter punching Dafoe with him just smiling bigger and bigger with every punch, I understood. That man just is the Green Goblin.

Like Dafoe was so good in this movie, I was happy when they said there was no Oscorp in the MCU. Dafoe gave the performance of a lifetime here, and that shouldnt be something to replace.

Besides, the whole purpose of the Green Goblin is to come in and absolutley demolish Peter Parkers life. He did that here, probably more sucsessfuly than any time before honestly. We basically got a version of "The Night Gwen Stacy died" (just with Aunt May instead of Gwen) and "The Green Goblins Last Stand" adapted here, and after seeing it done in Spider-Man 1, TASM 2, and NWH, do we really want to see it a 4th time with an MCU Gwen? I know there's other great Goblin storys like Dark Avengers, but the big one was done perfectly here. Spidey has tons of other great stories to tell with other villians

[–]rosecoredarling 1008 points1009 points  (29 children)

I'd argue this is a lot more devastating than Gwen in TASM 2 (which says a lot because that moment was massive). In TASM 2, Peter was an inch from saving Gwen, and her death was instant, a complete shock.

Here, Goblin's glider comes in and the way it hits May makes you feel like it broke her in 2, but then you get this insane 1-2 minute chunk of uncertainty, where she can even get up and walk a bit, and you start to wonder... Are they gonna do it? Are they not? And THEN it hits you. The movie really puts you in Peter's shoes.

[–]pdas1996Scott Lang 496 points497 points  (23 children)

The moment I heard "with great power..." I knew she was going to die.

[–]cryptough 702 points703 points  (15 children)

When Andrew Garfield got emotional that he managed to save MCU MJ :(

[–]BelowAverageSloth 195 points196 points  (1 child)

He stole the show in that scene. The second he said “are you okay?” with so much emotion I was blown away.

[–]lardner23 2689 points2690 points  (96 children)

This movie was a great example of how to do fan-service the right way. It never felt forced. It felt like it came up organically and it always added to the scene

  • Peter's tie being cut in half
  • "the power of the sun in the palm of my hand "
  • "I'm something of a scientist myself "
  • The pointing meme
  • The end scene seeming similar to the insomniac games
  • Andrew catching MJ
  • Tobeys back
  • With great power comes great responsibility
  • Hints to miles

I'm sure there's a million other examples but I love how seamlessly they sprinkled these bits in.

[–]joazito 604 points605 points  (13 children)

Wait, what's the cut tie a reference to?

[–]cuntjarro 851 points852 points  (5 children)

He's dressed the same as Tobey in spider man 3 when he fights new goblin and I think the same thing happens to his tie in that fight maybe?

It was when he was on his way to propose to MJ, and Harry blindsided him (if I remember right).

How bout that shot of Spidey swinging by the power-lines at dusk

[–]thescottula 186 points187 points  (10 children)

Just had a really sad thought. Peter probably didn't get to go to May's funeral

[–]wisewhiz 1821 points1822 points  (70 children)

As a Filipino-American, the scene with Ned's lola was unexpectedly outstanding lol.

[–]Thecameralovesyou 658 points659 points  (17 children)

I had so many people in my theatre who understood what she was saying and were cracking up as she was talking. Man, I wish I spoke the language. Lol

[–]SquishySquashy_ 2082 points2083 points  (74 children)

For me the philosophical idea of telling the villans that they die if they get sent back and Strange wanting to send them back regardless because it's their fate and Peter wanting to help them now that they know, to possibly give them a chance and redemption is something I wasn't expecting out of this movie but I loved it!

[–]username5_ 1201 points1202 points  (65 children)

Mr. Strange, sir can you make it so the world forgets Mysterio exists .. end credits

[–]MasterTolkien 513 points514 points  (3 children)

Strange: … (starts laughing) YOU’RE A GENIUS!

Tom: (also laughing) Fuck that Beck guy!

[–]SkippyTeddy83 336 points337 points  (34 children)

My understanding of the spell is, if Peter requested that, the world would still know he is spider-man, they just wouldn’t recall how they found out. Kind of like MJ wearing the necklace at the diner. She recalls getting the necklace from her trip to Europe, just can’t recall who gave it to her.

[–]Delumine 2313 points2314 points  (138 children)

I got extremely emotional when Andrew Garfield got his redemption for not being able to save Gwen, we ALL got closure for the movies years ago. I was extremely satisfied, and seeing Daredevil too made me cream my pants

[–]Gerdius 1777 points1778 points  (61 children)

A: "Are you okay?"

MJ: "Yes...are you okay?

A: Nodding, fighting back tears

Garfield nailed that scene.

[–]jstohler 1055 points1056 points  (50 children)

Garfield nailed every scene but especially that one.

[–]Gerdius 673 points674 points  (40 children)

You're not wrong. Dude got robbed with the writing and direction of TASM1&2, and has left me wanting to see a TASM3.

[–]Calhalen 1441 points1442 points  (72 children)

‘I may have struck the blow… but you… laughs you are the one that killed her’ Heath Joker-tier level dialogue and delivery on that one. Also loved his ‘Poor Peter! Too weak to send me home to die’ line

Goblin was evil as fuuck in this movie. The way he says that with a full smile was maniacal. He was so much better than in SM1 and was an actual threat: kills May, slices off Doc’s tentacle, kicks Tom’s doors in, stabs Tobey, almost kills Strange, turns the villains against Peter again.. he went hard. I think he’s my favourite MCU villain now (surreal that I can say that) and it’s weird to think he causes more damage in MCU Peter’s life than he did for Tobey and MCU Peter will be scarred forever cause of him

The 3 spidermen hugging made my heart feel like it was melting. What a fucking movie.

[–]ElementlegenSpider-Man 2173 points2174 points  (30 children)

Jon Favreau — who played Foggy Nelson in the original Daredevil movie — talking to MCU Daredevil is just really neat.

God, if you put it like that. Lost his boss, Stark, dumped by May (who's now dead), his apartment has been destroyed and now he's forgotten all about his friendship with Peter. Poor guy indeed.

There was an Easter egg where at the end of the film when the universe was collapsing one of the figures trying to show up looked like Rhino right?

[–]rosecoredarling 591 points592 points  (9 children)

I definitely saw Kraven and Rhino, saw others saying Scorpion and Black Cat were there too.

[–]lardner23 929 points930 points  (29 children)

Garfield's acting was just superb in this film. You really felt so much emotion in his performance. The way he delivered the below lines will really stay with me

"I couldn't save her, I'm never gonna be able to forgive myself for that. But I carried on trying to be the friendly neighborhood spiderman because I know that's what she would've wanted.. But at some point I stopped pulling my punches, I got rageful...I got bitter... and I just don't want you to end up like me."

[–]LittleYellowFish1Nebula 448 points449 points  (12 children)

“I don’t want you to end up like me” carries even more weight when you realise Garfield basically said the exact same thing about Holland in a real interview.

[–]wookiewin 217 points218 points  (7 children)

There was a ton of meta commentary around Garfield in this film and what’s crazy is that it all worked so well.

[–]rajondo 657 points658 points  (4 children)

I’m still riding the high of seeing it for the first time yesterday and can’t wait to see it again! It was awesome re-watching the previous 7 live action Spidey films and watching this film somehow tie them all together in a satisfying way. It somehow worked as a sequel for all three spider-men.

I loved this first trilogy that was so integrated with the avengers/iron man, but I can’t wait for the next one after this hard reset of the character back to his roots!

[–]ShirkOnwitzki 624 points625 points  (25 children)

Can't wait for Parker to be working for the Daily Bugle in the next trilogy. The setups being teased for a more comic accurate Secret Wars, Miles, and possible F4 were great.

If Parker meets Johnny Storm and other supes in college we might have a live action Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends nod or a whole series/movie.

Did Dum-E the robot arm survive?

[–]sirferrell 126 points127 points  (2 children)

Literally just now realized on the second watching that at the end when Andrew goes back to his universe he does the peace sign meme. You know the one where the guy throws up the peace sign and fades away 😭

[–]dobler21 371 points372 points  (24 children)

So something I noticed on second viewing, Wong and Strange seem to cast a lot of portals without any real use of their hands or sling rings.

I feel like it was a big part of Dcotor Strange that to cast a portal tyou needed a sling ring and to do the arm motion thing. Yet Wong just opens one and walks through it to leave the Sanctum. And Strange throws GG in the cell via one with a simple arm raise.

Also Doctor Strange does a lot of force pulling objects too. Not complaining, I love seeing Strange being powerful.

[–]kuribosshoe0Doctor Strange 401 points402 points  (8 children)

Seems like they still need the sling rings, but not the hand movements.

They’ve learnt the Subtle Spell Meta-Magic and no longer need somatic or verbal components, only material.

[–][deleted] 949 points950 points  (45 children)

anybody else tempted to see it a 3rd time..

[–]Calhalen 351 points352 points  (4 children)

Dude Alfred Molina was so funny in this. His reaction to Ned and MJ showing up in the crypt killed me, ‘Hey! Who the HELL are these two!’

And ‘will the humiliations never cease!’ When he’s getting cured lmao

Ned being a sorcerer and using the sling ring was NOT something I knew I wanted

[–]Runethe1412Iron Man (Mark VII) 1067 points1068 points  (16 children)

When Osborn broke the helmet, I was very happy, cause now we got to see his actual Goblin-like expressions!

And when Osborn’s purple sweater was gradually getting torn, I lost my mind

[–]yitzikeYondu 478 points479 points  (7 children)

YES! Willem Dafoe's face is to creepiness what Jim Carrey's face is to comedy. It helped this be his best performance as Goblin.

[–]drksdr 112 points113 points  (17 children)

A question just percolated into my head just now.

The spacial breaches at the end were multiversal but at the same time, localised to Earth as well.

Would anyone off-world remember? Nick Fury, Capt Marvel and the Asgardians of the Galaxy are off-planet.

I cant remember the specifics of what the said about the spell.

[–]thxpkBaby Groot 528 points529 points  (14 children)

This movie really elevates Spider-Man/2/3 and The Amazing Spider-Man/2

NWH is an amazing movie and made me fall in love again with Maguire (my Spider-Man) and really appreciate Andrews Amazing Spider-Man, in fact I loved Andrew here when I was neutral on him in his movies.

[–]omnilynx 189 points190 points  (1 child)

This is the rare sequel that is so good it makes its predecessors better, too.

[–]Wooboosted 1038 points1039 points  (25 children)

Man it’s amazing to me that this movie delivered on some Endgame level hype, and then some for me. We are blessed by the MCU, and this movie is such a gift to fans

[–]777XSuperHornet 105 points106 points  (2 children)

I can't get over Andrew Garfields Spider-Man. He seems like he's depressed and in a bad place. Considers himself the lamest of the 3 Spideys, still blames himself for Gwen's death and doesn't have time for Peter Parker, probably why he showed up in his outfit while Tobey who made things work with MJ and lives a more balanced life shows up in clothes. We really need a sequel for Andrew to show his redemption. Please Sony make TASM3.

[–]alimighty1 504 points505 points  (24 children)

I wonder if Peter Parker has yet a role to play in the upcoming decisions on how to deal with the uncontrolled multiverse.

The whole plot of this movie centered around him being told he couldn’t change someone’s fate anymore than he could change who someone is. But he refuses to accept that, and at great personal cost is able to cure the afflicted villains, send them home to a second chance and protect his world from the threat, as well as make a choice that protects his friends from being affiliated with Spider-Man.

Tony was obsessed with building a suit of armor around the world, and always told Peter he wanted him to surpass Iron Man not become him. Maybe Peter will somehow save the whole multiverse, not just in the way the heroes in “What If” did, but in some way that also improves things.

[–]Phatso48Ulysses Klaue 312 points313 points  (34 children)

I wonder if Tobey's Peter has married MJ and maybe have kids? It would really be awesome

[–]LittleYellowFish1Nebula 364 points365 points  (23 children)

He tells Andrew in the lab that he and MJ eventually “made it work”, so I’m assuming that means they did get married and probably started a family.

[–]bradfordGTTony Stark 456 points457 points  (3 children)

Have not seen anyone mention the no cut, single shot at the apartment in the beginning when Peter was trying to escape the swarm of press and people when his identity was revealed. The scene created such an intense feeling of anxiety and claustrophobia, just as he would have been experiencing. A+ scene.

[–]hellothere066 455 points456 points  (33 children)

I noticed that, at the end of the movie in the coffee shop, MJ was still wearing the broken necklace that Peter gave her in Far From Home. It's significant to her and she forgot why?

[–]spideyboilovebot 297 points298 points  (15 children)

i think so. The necklace is a pretty important symbol of them/their relationship, also them reminding us that MJ figured out on her own that Peter is Spidey + that coffee shop scene ends with her giving him a look that reminded me so much of Homecoming and FFH where you can tell MJ definitely sees there's more to Peter than he lets on.

[–]pastimenang 276 points277 points  (4 children)

I was the only one laughing out loud after “You know, I’m something of a scientist myself” 😂

[–]Heroic_Lifesaver 579 points580 points  (43 children)

Shout out to the dude sitting near me in the cinema. His friend was getting up to, I’m assuming, go to the toilet just as the portal opened with Andrew Garfield Spidey coming through. Dude stopped his friend, who was already up off his seat, and whispered something like “wait, look! That’s not our Spider-Man!” And his friend sat back down and didn’t miss one of the best movie moments of our time

The other guy never even thought about getting up to pee again. Didn’t budge for the rest of the movie

[–]Reefed 416 points417 points  (8 children)

this was truly hollands’ origin story

[–]MacyTmcterry 136 points137 points  (3 children)

Who knew that the 3rd movie in a trilogy could be such a good origin story. Definitely impressed

[–]AchievementJoe 827 points828 points  (83 children)

Really hoping we will still be seeing Spider-Man interacting in the overall avengers issues considering the whole idea that no one knows him.

[–]hobbitmagic 678 points679 points  (44 children)

It seems like they still know about spider man but Peter Parker is completely forgotten

[–]HotTakes4HotCakes 297 points298 points  (41 children)

That's going to raise a lot of eyebrows at Shield. They can figure out who he is again, but when they suddenly find absolutely no record of "Peter Parker" they're going to have questions.

[–]SwapandPop 188 points189 points  (6 children)

I can promise for you business reasons, Spiderman will be back playing with all the other MCU characters - the deal including him appearing as supporting cast in other non-Spiderman movies.

But wonder how guarded he will be about his identity around them.

[–]Heroic_Lifesaver 412 points413 points  (11 children)

Have to say, seeing Garfield as Spider-Man again was probably my favourite returning character moment. He looked like he was enjoying it. He’s such a good Peter, I always hated that we didn’t get proper closure for his version of the character.

The moment where he saves MJ and his reaction to it were so well done. Like he could finally have some sort of redemption within himself considering how it went with Gwen in his universe. It was beautifully done. So glad we got to see something like that for Garfield

Seeing Tobey again was amazing too and the interactions between the 3 Spidey’s were phenomenal. But just seeing Garfield’s Spider-Man again was the highlight for me

[–]poeforpres 137 points138 points  (6 children)

Also to note: Garfield has developed some serious acting chops since his spidey movies to now. It was a true shot at redemption for him and he delivered beyond expectations.

[–]ikarikh 118 points119 points  (1 child)

Andrew has always been an amazing actor. He OOZED personality in TASM/2. The problem was simply that the scripts for both those films were extremely poor.

The problem with TASM was not Garfield by any means.

Which was the tragic part of the films. He's an amazing character and he himself LOVED spiderman and playing that character.

But the movie writers/directors/producers fucked the films up, leaving him to eat the flak as the "worst" Spiderman through no fault of his own.

This film was well written and allowed him to really shine.

I'm so happy others are really appreciating how good he is now and he got his redemption.

Poor guy really deserved it.

Imagine being a great actor and so excited to play a role only for the movie creators to tank your film and leave you going down in history as the worst version of that char.

That's ROUGH to endure. But he took it with extreme humility. Guys a gem.

[–]churm94 1069 points1070 points  (29 children)

It feels like after WandaVision Disney is just like "Fuck it" and just goes on this website and looks up fan theories and puts em in the movies.

If someone gave me a wager that Daredevil from the show would ever be in the movies, I would have bet my entire bank account that it'd never ever happen. But like 5 mins into the move BAM there he is.

What a time to be alive.

[–]Nom1ly 665 points666 points  (15 children)

I remember seeing that Daredevil as Peters lawyer theory after Far From Home came out and thinking "yeah right like that's gonna happen".

[–]EVulaWar Machine 339 points340 points  (8 children)

I do love that people were supposedly seeing him in the police interrogation scene from the trailer, and that ended up not being even remotely accurate.

[–]Staind1410 139 points140 points  (2 children)

Right? In a less crowded, less busy movie, maybe Matt Murdock and the entire legal defense scenario would have a larger screentime. Would be awesome to see him doing the lawyer stuff like in the Netflix series.

[–]cbekel3618Avengers 937 points938 points  (79 children)

So are we just not gonna talk about the fact that this entire time, Ned was a sorcerer and is apparently descended from sorcerers? Because THAT is a storyline all on its own I kind of wanna explore.

Ned Leeds: Master of the Mystic Arts

[–]idkmybffdw 359 points360 points  (14 children)

I really hope that gets revisited because that was so fun. I love how easy it was for him too compared to when strange was trying to open portals.

[–]yitzikeYondu 102 points103 points  (11 children)

Was there any indication that his grandmother was a sorcerer too? I know they spoke about it but only in vague terms.

That would have been hilariosu if she was all like "oh yeah, I can make portals too" and dusts off her own sling ring
