The threequel’s place in the MCU’s Phase 4 timeline is made more apparent in the second full trailer for Spider-Man: NWH. It all started with the events of Avengers: Endgame and Spider-Man: NWH, which laid the groundwork for Peter Parker’s most incredible fight to date. Spider-Man must rely on Doctor Strange and his closest friends to guide him and support him during his multiverse battle against Doctor Octopus, Green Goblin, Electro, Sandman, and Lizard.
Asynchronous settings have made it hard to tell which MCU’S Phase 4 titles come first, despite Spider-Man: No Way Home being a direct continuation of Infinity Saga. After the end of Avengers: Endgame, WandaVision is only two weeks old, while Black Widow is between Captain America: Civil War and Avengers Infinity Wars, and The Falcon and the Winter Soldier and Eternals’ emergence occurs six months after Steve Rogers passed the shield on to Sam Wilson.
Spider-Man: No Way Home’s events can still be linked to Loki’s finale, even though Loki takes place outside time and space. Peter Parker’s secret identity was revealed in the post-credits scene of Spider-Man: Far From Home a week after his fight with Mysterio, according to the trailer for Spider-Man: No Way Home. Spider-Man: No Way Home begins with Peter Parker and MJ fleeing the crowd and embarking on Peter’s journey of self-discovery.
It’s not clear how long it will take for Spider-Man to go to Doctor Strange for help, but the first trailer suggested that Peter will only come up with the idea if he sees Halloween decorations that resemble the sorcerer. Consequently, Spider-Man: No Way Home begins in the Summer of 2024 (eight months after Avengers: Endgame) and jumps forward to the fall or winter of the same year.
Spider-Man: No Way Home has a lot to tell us about its place in the timeline by the presence of multiversal rifts in its second trailer. Doctor Strange warns Peter that he cannot prevent what is about to happen. When Sylvie killed him, the Sacred Timeline in Loki’s Citadel at the End of Time suddenly deviated from the norm.
“The threshold” was coined by He Who Remains as soon as the Sacred Timeline became unstable. Consequently, the death of He Who Remains is likely to co-occur as Spider-Man’s battle with the Sinister Six. Other parts of the MCU will be affected by this as well. For example, Venom and Eddie Brock, who was teleported into the MCU while Peter Parker’s identity was revealed, will have plenty of time to settle in.
Hawkeye, for example, will either have to acknowledge the multiverse’s opening or find clever ways to avoid it, given the magnitude of the occasion. Fans of the MCU have decided to wait more than two years for this film, but Peter Parker only had a week to process the death of Mysterio before he faced the greatest challenge of his life.
