MCU makes history once again with “Spider-Man: No Way Home”


Sony Pictures / Marvel Studios

Tom Holland’s Spider-Man: No Way Home to beat the 2009 film Avatar in the Box Office later this week.

Spider-Man: No Way Home as of now is holding the number six spot in the Top Lifetime Grosses chart on Box Office Mojo. Sitting $300,0000,000 behind Avengers: Infinity War, the Marvel Cinematic Universe has found its way to put four movies in the top ten highest grossing movies. Caution: spoilers ahead.

According to the Internet Movie Database, “With Spider-Man’s identity now revealed, Peter asks Doctor Strange for help. When a spell goes wrong, dangerous foes from other worlds start to appear, forcing Peter to discover what it truly means to be Spider-Man.” Alongside the villains in their universe however come their stories heroes. This fan theory was proven correct as they watched Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire put on their suits again to fight the latest crime alongside Tom Holland. This also means that William Dafoe, who plays the Green Goblin, and Alfred Molina, who plays Doc Ock, hit the big screens again, too. Jamie Foxx as Electro also appeared in the film.

Spider-Man: No Way Home is set in 2024, following directly after Spider-Man: Far From Home, which follows the events of Avengers: Endgame in 2023. This film, then, is the gateway to the next movie in the series, Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness as the multiverse was opened up and had to be closed with the expense of the remembrance of Peter Parker.

No Way Home is a nostalgic, entertaining, and an on the edge of your seat cinematic experience for every viewer watching. Whether you’re a child getting into the MCU, a young adult reliving his past days of Spider-Man, or a critic readying to write a review about the movie, there is something that everybody will love. With a budget of 200 million, the film makers spared no expense to ensure the film was made to the best of their abilities.

Bringing back old characters, resolving plot lines, and almost unnecessary amounts of coming of age moments gives this superhero movie a little bit more than the rest. One of my favorite storylines of this movie were the characters of Andrew Garfield and Toby Maguire as the audience saw them doing what they couldn’t in their own universes. These actions were able to give the characters relief from their past trauma and even teach Tom Holland’s Spider-Man a thing or two about making the right decisions.

Overall, I found this film to be an entertaining, memorable, and action packed film. It was emotional, funny, and even nostalgic. With a 93% on Rotten Tomatoes and a 98% audience score, it’s no surprise how highly ranked this film is.
