How ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ Did The Unthinkable…and Exceeded Expectations
The movie event of the year had been one of the most speculated about and theorized films in recent memory; this is how Spider-Man: No Way Home did the unthinkable…and exceeded all expectations.
Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures orchestrate a masterclass on how to promote excitement for a film with how they handled the third film in Peter Parkers MCU Saga.
A limited promotional campaign and consistent “leaks” and rumors created a self-sustaining stream of fan theories and online speculation that only gained momentum as the film’s release grew closer.
All of this hype surrounding the movie allowed Marvel and Sony to be very secretive with the trailers and teasers that they released for the film; giving just enough for fans to feel as though they were on to something with their many theories, but not enough to confirm or deny any major plot points.
With all of the hype, the theories, the anticipation, and the speculation; it felt as though this third Spider-Man film would in some way crush under the tremendous weight of its own expectation.
We here at Marvel Blog even predicted the film to be almost destined for disappointment, but it seems that Spider-Man: No Way Home has achieved the opposite result.
No matter how ridiculous it may seem, it appears as though Spider-Man: No Way Home did the unthinkable; they actually exceeded expectations.
Whether it was the fantastic development of the MCU’s iteration of Peter Parker, or the incredible reconstruction of his understanding of what it means to be a hero.
All the way to the careful treatment of Spider-Man’s greatest villains; exploring and depicting adaptations of these great antagonists of Spider-Man movie past that felt like it honored those performances, while also building new facets to them.
Tom Holland clearly separated himself from previous adaptations of Peter Parker, and Jon Watts captained an immensely combustible situation into a cohesive and emotionally resonant narrative worthy of every second the film had to work with.
Spider-Man: No Way Home may not be the best Marvel movie ever made, but it is clearly one of the best; without the slow pacing problems of Avengers: Endgame, or the smaller scope of one of the exceptional Captain America films.
Spider-Man: No Way Home did the unthinkable and exceeded expectations, and we are all incredibly thankful that they did.
