If there’s one MCU movie that fans are excited about right now, then it’s Spider-Man: No Way Home. It’s poised to be an amazing tale that will close out MCU Peter Parker’s story.
And according to the trailer that was released, fans will get to see a lot of iconic spider-man villains turn up in the movie. Not to mention the fact that Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield are also rumored to show up in the film.
But that’s not all.
The third movie in the MCU spider-man trilogy will bring the sorcerer supreme and other multiversal villains. And that will make the film unlike any other Spidey or even Marvel movie we have seen till now.
But these are all the new characters. There are a lot of returning characters from Far From Home as well as Homecoming too who need their place in the spotlight. And one of the most important returning characters is Zendaya’s MJ.
Obviously, this movie is packed full of surprises, and so Sony Pictures is deliberately keeping quiet about everything that is in the movie. However, right now, we know that Alfred Molina’s Doc-Ock will come back and he will be terrorizing Spider-man for sure.
With such a large cast, scale, and scope, the movie can only be possibly compared to one other film, and director Jon Watts has said the same.
Spider-Man: No Way Home Director Compares Movie To Avengers: Endgame
Sitting down to chat with Empire, director Jon Watts talked about Spider-Man: No Way Home and said that it was similar to Spider-Man: Endgame. Here’s his quote:
“We’re definitely trying to be ambitious…It’s ‘Spider-Man: Endgame'”
This claim comes because the movie decided to include a major Spider-Man foe of the past, who has shown up in one of the Spidey movies before. This is Alfred Molina’s Doc-Ock.
Is It Right To Compare Spider-Man: No Way Home To Avengers: Endgame?
The comparison is apt because Endgame is THE biggest MCU film to date. It was also a movie that seemingly seamlessly tied together multiple plotlines and character threads that have been ongoing in the MCU for about a decade.
It was an ambitious project because nothing like that had been done before, and now Spider-Man: No Way Home is attempting something similar. It is tying together MCU Peter Parker’s story while introducing multiversal elements and characters.
Also, just like Endgame, No Way Home is a celebration too. The former was celebrating decade-long interconnected storytelling of the MCU while No Way Home is attempting to celebrate MCU Spider-Man. But there’s something more that makes the latest Spidey movie a difficult endeavor.
This is the fact that they have to respect and incorporate about 2 decades of live-action Spidey history and tie it all together as well. Also, we think that Jon Watts might have been referring to the large-scale crossover that No Way Home will be carrying out.
Fans already know that Green Goblin and Doc-Ock will be showing up along with other enemies thanks to the promo material that was released.
Along with this, fans have been speculating that Eddie Brock might show up as well since it was teased in the post-credits scene of Venom: Let There Be Carnage.
As such, it’s apt to compare No Way Home to Endgame. After all, that is the only movie that can accurately convey to audiences what’s in store for them.
Spider-Man: No Way Home will be in theaters on December 17, 2021.
