After NWH, the MCU may be on its way to having its own version of “Emo Peter Parker”. Yes, the same kind from Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man trilogy. With the MCU currently in its fourth phase, the multiverse will be the primary focus. Fans will have their eyes out for the new shows/movies that will be released. The dangers of the multiverse were first introduced by Loki. However, at NWH, they were explored in greater depth. Furthermore, the events that transpired there will have far-reaching consequences for the rest of the MCU.
Far From Home is where Spider-secret Man’s identity was revealed and he was accused by Mysterio of murder. Immediately following the events of Far From Home, NWH picks up right from here. That’s what happened when Peter Parker asked Doctor Strange for a magic spell that would make everyone forget about him as Spider-Man. However, it didn’t work out as planned. As a result, characters from previous Spider-Man films (such as the Green Goblin, Doctor Octopus, Sandman, Lizard, and Electro) and previous incarnations of Spider-Man could travel to the Marvel Cinematic Universe via the spell.
Spidey: No Way Home ended with Strange’s contained spell being released, bringing in more foes from alternate realities. Holland’s Spider-Man realized that the only way to keep the multiverse safe was to make everyone forget about him. This is why he asked Strange to cast a spell to erase all memories of him. Spider-Man: No Way Home ended with Peter Parker starting a new life on his own. However, the post-credits scene showing a piece of the Venom symbiote being left in the MCU could hint at the return of Emo Peter Parker.
With Venom temporarily bonding with Spider-Man, Peter’s darker side was exposed in Spider-Man 3. With his “bully” side, Peter alienated Mary Jane and even changed his appearance, giving the audience one of the most memorable scenes in the trilogy: Emo Peter Parker dancing on the streets. This could lead to a new version of “Emo Peter Parker,” with the symbiote bonding with a lonely Peter and bringing out his darker side. Hopefully, this time he won’t be given a fringe. Notwithstanding a cringy (but memorable) dancing scene in the streets.
Tom Holland’s Peter Parker has been linked to both the MCU and Sony’s Spider-Man Universe (SMU). Nonetheless, there’s no guarantee that he’ll appear in either universe anytime soon. However, the symbiote offers the possibility of seeing a darker version of Holland’s Peter Parker. Is it possible that the MCU has learned from Spider-Man 3’s mistakes? Or will it go with its own version of Emo Peter Parker, which will hopefully be better received than Tobey Maguire’s in Sam Raimi’s?
