For Holland, Maguire, and Garfield, No Way Home creates a villain problem

Spider-Man: No Way Home was a huge hit, but it presented a problem for all three Spider-Men in the film. While the COVID-19 pandemic has had a significant influence on theatergoing, Spider-Man: No Way Home was the box office smash that the world had been waiting for. No Way Home, which debuted during the 2021 holiday season and overcame the pandemic to become the sixth-largest film of all time, was a massive crowd-pleaser.

No Way Home linked three eras of Spider-Man films, which was a key component of its success. The Multiverse is opened as a result of Doctor Strange’s (Benedict Cumberbatch) spell gone wrong, rather than the intended effect of restoring Peter Parker’s secret identity (Tom Holland). As a result, Spider-Man villains from several realms swarm the MCU, but they aren’t alone on their quest.

The spell also takes two other Spider-Men from different universes, namely Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield, Holland’s fellow Web-Slingers. The trio joins forces to send the five villains back to their homeland, with audiences all across the world cheering them on. However, as massively successful as No Way Home has been, it may have done its job a little too well when it comes to its villains.

Green Goblin, Doc Ock, Sandman, Electro, and the Lizard are all well-known Spider-Man villains who appear in No Way Home. No Way Home also features the actors that played them in earlier films repeating their roles, making it as nostalgic as it is a brand-new Spider-Man adventure. At the same time, it makes it difficult to follow the lead of No Way Home’s villainous quintet.
