Right, Spider-Man: No Way Home theories and predictions…
We already did one of these articles, which you can check out right here.
OK, so without any further ado, let’s get onto more Spider-Man: No Way Home theories and predictions – which will probably all turn out to be wrong…
Theory Number 1 (or is it number 7…? I’ve lost count): These are new versions of the Spidey villains
So, we already know that Alfred Molina, Willem Dafoe and Jamie Foxx are all return as their respective Spider-Man villains in No Way Home.
However, our theory/prediction is that these versions won’t be the same as the ones they played in the previous Spider-Man movies.
One of the things that makes me think this is that, well, both the Green Goblin and Doc Ock died in their Spider-Man movies.
Also, it looks like Foxx’s Elektro in No Way Home will be shooting yellow lightning bolts.
He was shooting blue ones in The (not so) Amazing Spider-Man 2.
Theory Number 2 (for the sake of this article): Andrey Garfield’s Spider-Man will be a ‘darker’ version of Spidey
The one thing that I think might carry on into No Way Home, however, is that Garfield’s Peter Parker will be the same as in The Amazing Spider-Man movies.
I wonder whether he will be therefore a much darker version of Spider-Man – almost like a Spider-Man unhinged.
I really like the idea of him still grieving the loss of Gwen Stacey and therefore is kind of all over the place.
Maybe he’s done some proverbial ‘shit’ after that event in the movie.
Maybe he’s killed some villains and gone really dark?
I think that would be so interesting for Garfield to explore and also give these Marvel/Sony Spider-Man movies another edge.
Theory Number 3 (yeah, I’m carrying on with this numbering system): Tobey Maguire’s Spider-Man will be Tom Holland’s Peter Parker’s mentor – not Doctor Strange
Now, I went over this a bit in the previous video.
I think something up with Doctor Strange in No Way Home.
Go and check out Geekosity’s article on it, but to cut a long article short (do read it though), Doctor Strange could actually be Mephisto/Nightmare in disguise.
Therefore, I wonder whether Peter will go into the Multiverse in search of help and finds Tobey Maguire’s Spider-Man.
I think he might be in a better frame of mind to help him than Andrew Garfield’s Spidey.
Wouldn’t it be cool if Maguire’s Spider-Man gets to mentor Holland’s Peter in No Way Home?
It would be a bit like what happened in Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse and I like the idea.
I also like the idea of seeing a past Spider-Man actor get to help the current Spider-Man actor.
It’s like Spider-Man’s gone full circle and would be a nice way to round off this new Spidey trilogy.
Theory Number 4 (we’re sticking with it): Spider-Man: No Way Home’s trailer is a HUGE misdirect
I think the trailer is actually misdirecting us completely and has only shown us a fraction of the movie.
There’s so much already in the trailer, but I do wonder whether it’s all only taken from the first few minutes of the film.
This means that there’s a whole load of other crazy stuff to come.
Also, Tom Holland himself teased this to be the case on his Instagram feed, and he does love spoiling things for us.
So, I wonder whether all these theories and predictions will count for naught when the movie comes out.
I would LOVE to see Kevin Feige’s face when people watch the movie and then come out of it going: “What the FUCK did we just watch!?”
That WAS NOT the movie the trailer sold us!
Theory Number 5 (this will be the final theory/prediction because I ain’t got no more and coming up with theories and predictions is tough!): Scarlet Witch will be a villain in this movie
Now, I know that many people have been coming up with theories about Mephisto or Nightmare being behind it all (yes, and I know we did the same thing).
However, if we’ve learnt one thing from these MCU movies and series, it’s that Marvel is NOT going to bring in either character into the MCU just yet.
Yes, we get ourselves all hyped up and then it was Agatha all along…!
I think that Marvel Studios and Sony knows that they can’t use Mephisto (*cough* China *cough*).
So, what Marvel tends to do in situations like this is either create a new character, that resembles a couple from the comics.
Thus the theory that Doctor Strange is actually a Mephisto/Nightmare character in disguise.
OR, they bring in another character from the MCU.
That character COULD be Scarlet Witch – aka Wanda Maximoff.
Given how WandaVision ended, I’m pretty sure that she’s going to be something of a villain moving forward.
AND, I wonder whether we won’t find out until the very end of the movie that she was controlling Doctor Strange all along (get it…? It was Wanda all along… Yeah, not the best joke ever).
So, this will then lead into Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness.
We know that she’s going to be in that movie, so I think the reveal that she was the one behind it all in this Spider-Man: No Way Home won’t come until the final act of the movie.
Anyway, that’s enough Spider-Man: No Way Home theories and predictions.
Let us know what you thought of them in the comments, and we do read ALL OF THEM! I swear.
I need to go and lie down for a bit and try to forget about this movie.
OK, that’s me out. I’m going to sleep until No Way Home comes out and I can find out that all my theories and predictions were wrong.
