6 Things I Want to See in a New Spider-Man Movie Trilogy

Spider-Man: No Way Home was an awesome movie and a great origin story for actor Tom Holland to truly become a classic Spider-Man. In a perfect world, Holland would be 100% on board with keeping the character moving forward, giving us another full trilogy or series set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The powers that be at Marvel and Sony have said they’re already working on a new trilogy, though Holland has been real cagey about his involvement.

I need to watch this movie again

Assuming we do get Tom Holland back in the spider-tights and we continue the story of the MCU Peter Parker, what are we going to get? The ending to Spider-Man: No Way Home is rather perfect to springboard into more movies, and there is a ton of Spider-Man content from the comics we could explore. Also in this perfect world of mine, Marvel Studios actually reads this blog and takes some of my ideas! So what do I, a major fan of the MCU and Spider-Man in general, want to see in a future Tom Holland trilogy of films?

Join me after the jump for some of my ideas. I’ll try to keep SPOILERS for No Way Home to a minimum, but definitely don’t read if you don’t want to know anything about the movie. And feel free to share your own thoughts and hopes in the comments!

6 Thoughts on Spider-Man: No Way Home

Whoo baby, what a movie! I’ll admit to being mostly lukewarm about Marvel’s superhero movies this year, despite liking all of them. But now we have Spider-Man: No Way Home and I’m reminded by Marvel Studios is such a powerhouse of a production company! I’m reminded by Marvel Studios is so damn smart when it comes to utilizing their properties and bringing the very best movies to bear on the big screen. Spider-Man: No Way Home is a superhero movie marvel.

Movie Rating: 10/10 – Fantastic!

I cannot heap enough praise on this film. I have been watching Spider-Man movies all of my adult life. The first Tobey Maguire Spidey movie came out after my freshman year of college, and I haven’t missed a Spider-Man movie in the theaters since. And I’ve enjoyed them all. I even liked the Amazing Spider-Man movies. And I especially loved Tom Holland’s Spider-Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. With No Way Home, these filmmakers have done the seemingly impossible. They have taken all of our nostalgia, all of our expectations, all of our hopes and dreams, and have put together a truly spectacular movie, and a truly amazing Spider-Man movie on top of that.

Join me after the jump for my full review and all my thoughts on Spider-Man: No Way Home. Expect FULL SPOILERS for the entire movie and some other Marvel stuff. And please feel free to share your own thoughts in the comments below!

Spider-Man: No Way Home Sure Looks Fancy

We waited all day for this to arrive and here it is, the big, fancy new trailer for Spider-Man: No Way Home! Does it live up to the hype? Does it live up to the excitement? Will it save the Marvel Cinematic Universe?

Yeah, it looks alright.

Lots of exciting action, some fun Spidey jokes, some fun Spidey drama. Honestly, it looks a little too much. But who am I to complain? Who am I to argue? You’re darn right I’m gonna see this opening night and hopefully it blows the doors off the pandemic!

Spider-Man: No Way Home arrives in theaters on Dec. 17.

6 Things I Want to See in Spider-Man: No Way Home

The first trailer for Spider-Man: No Way Home arrived this week and the internet is having a celebration! Not all of the rumors were confirmed in the trailer, but enough has been teased that everybody seems pretty happy. I’m very excited myself. And as with most upcoming superhero movies, I have a list of demands!

I want to see this scene for sure

Anything can happen in Spider-Man: No Way Home. The multiverse has been broken open, Into the Spider-Verse was a huge success, a lot of actors are still around; this movie could have everything. The only way to know for sure is to see it when it comes out on Dec. 17. But until then, I’m going to speculate wildly about what exactly I hope to see in this new movie. Life is just fun that way.

And feel free to share your own hopes and dreams for Spider-Man: No Way Home in the comments!

Spider-Man: No Way Home Loves Its Fans

The first trailer for Spider-Man: No Way Home arrived last night and it has taken the internet by storm — largely by confirming a lot of the rumors and predictions. I’m excited. See for yourself.

In case you don’t know what’s going on, that’s Alfred Molina returning as Doctor Octopus, the character he played in the movie Spider-Man 2 from way back in 2004. And we can also see a pumpkin bomb from Willem Dafoe’s Green Goblin. As far as we know, these actors are not playing new versions of these characters.

It would seem that the villains from the original, early-2000s Spider-Man movies are somehow going to travel through the Multiverse to show up in Spider-Man: No Way Home to fight the current movie Spider-Man.

Obviously, this is cool and I’m very excited. But I’m curious whether or not casual fans will get what’s happening. I fondly remember every single character from the Sam Raimi Spider-Man movies, but are casual fans going to understand the implication of Doc Ock showing up in the new movie? Will they recognize the Green Goblin’s pumpkin bomb? Or maybe Marvel is so confident in the pop culture power of their Spider-Man films that they’re just going to go for broke and hope everybody is able to keep up.

Either way, we’ll hopefully find out on Dec. 17 when Spider-Man: No Way Home arrives in theaters.
