Something does get lost when seeing Spider-Man: No Way Home represented by the old 90s cartoon, but it does feel as though plenty of people would state that they kind of prefer this simply due to the idea that it brings back a very nostalgic feeling when it comes to the wall-crawling hero. It wasn’t a bad attempt really since a lot of what was in the trailer managed to fit into the cartoon in a convincing manner that likely satisfied a lot of fans. But satisfying the overall fanbase isn’t always a possibility and it’s likely that people are going to find plenty of fault with the movie when it does finally come out. Some might say that it’s absolutely perfect since the movie is bringing back a few characters that fans have been wanting to see for a while, and others might say that it’s trying to do too much at this point by discovering how to integrate so much material that’s gone into making Spider-Man a top-tier hero at this point. Pairing him with Doctor Strange and making it appear that Strange will be a new type of mentor though is an interesting direction.
The old Spider-Man cartoons were entertaining back in the day since, like it or not, they were what we had and no one knew any better since even the comics weren’t as impressive as they are now given that so many things have changed since then. In each era, it’s been easy to be impressed by the cutting-edge graphics and artistry that have been brought to so many comic book heroes. I can still recall thinking that Excalibur, the team made up of Captain Britain, Nightcrawler, Kitty Pryde, and a few others had been featured in the greatest graphic novel of all time. But things have changed obviously and the quality of the artwork and the acting have both changed as well.
Plus, the story of the next Spider-Man movie is far more immersive than a lot of the cartoons have ever been and even more so than any of the movies have been since the multiverse is being utilized in a bigger way finally and is likely going to yield a lot of new characters that will help to push the MCU forward. The only thing about it is that by doing this it feels as though the multiverse is going to open in a way that will be a lot less manageable than Into the Spider-Verse since Peter insisted on talking while Strange was busy trying to form the spell, which doesn’t sound like it was a good idea. But then there’s the belief that Peter is at fault for trying to live two separate lives, which wasn’t a good idea to start with. One thing about the upcoming movie however is that it is continuing to push the idea that the life of a superhero is incredibly complicated, especially when one is attempting to hide who they are from the public. Even those that don’t hide who they are, such as Captain America, are at a greater risk for being looked at in a variety of ways when it comes to the expectations that are heaped upon them.
The line ‘with great power comes great responsibility’ kind of leaves a few things out since it doesn’t tend to mention that people will become envious, they’ll harbor different thoughts about those they figure are a threat to society, and will essentially come to suspect the heroes of one thing or another, and possible fear them. The whole issue with Mysterious appears as though it might blow over in a way that leaves a great deal of collateral damage, meaning that Peter’s friends and family will be subjected to the same scrutiny that he is. Coupled with the unfortunate fact that heroes tend to cause as much damage as they try to prevent, it’s already looking as though Peter is going to be in for a massive headache throughout the movie, especially when it comes to navigating the multiverse and coming across enemies that were dispatched in previous movies. Let’s face it, the cartoons never became this complicated and there’s a good reason for it, a lot of viewers might have spent more time trying to figure out what was going on and might have stopped watching.
Spider-Man: No Way Home already looks as though it’s going to be pretty cool, and one can imagine that there will be other clips showing something that has to do with the upcoming movie since playing around with the material is one way that people manage to get attention and celebrate one of their favorite heroes. What all will happen in the coming movie though has yet to be revealed, no matter what the fans that have analyzed the trailer frame by frame might say.
