I Think ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ Is Secretly a Hot Mess of a Movie Right Now

I’ve never been one to be worried about the MCU and its films but with Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness being pushed to May because of extensive reshoots in November and December and the mind-numbing secrecy surrounding Spider-Man: No Way Home I’m starting to notice something rather unfortunate.

For months, fans were clamoring for a trailer for the upcoming Spider-Man flick. It finally dropped on August 23, roughly four months before its release in theaters, and that felt right. But now we’re heading into November and as more details a.k.a promotional pictures start coming out for the film I hate to say it but this film just kind of looks…bad.

Check out this picture that got turned into an instant meme.

Spider-Man: No Way Home Is 'Spider-Man: Endgame', Says Director Jon Watts –  Exclusive Images | Movies | Empire

I wanted to like this picture but there are so many things wrong with this image. First off, the CGI for Doc Ock looks ridiculous. I mean, is this an early 2000s’ movie?

Secondly, Spider-Man doesn’t run from a fight? He didn’t even run from Thanos who’s way scarier than this guy so what the heck is he doing in this picture?

There’s also a level of secrecy around this film that feels less like Kevin Feige wanting us to be surprised and more like the editors are scrounging to put this convoluted movie together.

This is the MCU’s first foray into the multiverse theme and this, unfortunately, is where stories can start getting wacky real quick. Spider-Man has had two solid films so I shouldn’t be too worried but my gut is just telling me there’s something off with this movie the more I see it.

And, considering that I often base a movie’s quality off of their teaser trailer, I was one of the small crowd who found the No Way Home teaser to be very underwhelming and not that great. The only thing I liked about it was Doctor Strange because duh, he’s my favorite.

What do you think? Do you still have faith in Spider-Man: No Way Home‘s chances of being a great movie? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments below.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a spectacular day.

Throwback Friday: I Want to See Doctor Octopus in ‘Spider-Man 3’

Before Tom Holland’s rendition of the iconic Spider-Man, I was never a fan of the character. The villains, however, that’s another story.

From Green Goblin to Kingpin to Doctor Octopus and Venom, Spider-Man has some of the greatest comic book villains of all time. I’ve just recently been introduced to The Vulture and Mysterio thanks to Spider-Man: Homecoming and Far from Home as well as The Prowler and Scorpion due to Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse and they are just as fascinating.

Spider-Man 3 will have to deliver an even greater villain (or villains) for Peter Parker to have to face and one antagonist I want to see on the big screen is Doctor Octopus.

Ever since I was a kid watching the old Spider-Man cartoon Doctor Octopus has been one of my favorite villains of all time. It would simply be wish fulfillment to see this character on the big screen, in IMAX, played by some fantastic actor who’ll bring Doc Ock to life in a way I’d never thought I’d see.

Ranking Spider-Man’s Villains

Every superhero has an archnemesis. Superman has Lex Luthor. Batman has the Joker. Captain America has Red Skull. Iron Man has…well, I guess, Whiplash or whoever. Black Panther has M’Baku or Erik Killmonger. Thor has Loki. And so on and so on. But Spider-Man. Spider-Man has a bunch of antagonists who are all equally fascinating. In fact, Spider-Man has my favorite superhero villains, by far.

Every antagonist that he faces is at the nth degree of coolness and so today, I wanted to rank all of Spider-Man’s villains (that I know of.) Enjoy!

11. Electro

Jamie Foxx was cast as Max Dillon/Electro in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and while the character in the comics and cartoons is really cool, the big-screen adaptation of Electro was pretty horrendous. In fact, he’s my least favorite superhero villain in a movie of all time.

Jamie Foxx is a great actor but not even he could inject anything good into this role. Continue reading Ranking Spider-Man’s Villains
