We finally got our first look at Marvel’s Spider-Man: No way home and it looks amazing. The scope of the picture looks huge, the inclusion of Dr. Strange is money, and the overall premise feels like a clever way to introduce the multiverse.

Speaking of … Doc Ock. Green leprechaun. Never in a million years would I have believed that I would get the chance to see Alfred Molina and Willem Dafoe repeat their iconic characters from Sam Raimis Spider Man Trilogy, but here we are 17 years later for our first look at the villain couple in all their early 2000s glory.

In fact, I’m more looking forward to seeing another film with you (and possibly, but also obviously, Tobey Maguire and / or Andrew Garfield) than seeing a third film with Tom Holland? All due respect to Mr. Holland and Marvel, however Spider Man and Spider-Man 2 are among the best comic films of all time. People forget how monumental they were when they were released all those years ago – 2002 and 2004, respectively – mainly because Spider-Man 3 was unfortunately really that bad. (Serious, Spidey 3 is right next to it Star Wars: Episode 1 – The Phantom Menace on my list of the most disappointing films. The totally shocked reaction of the crowd on the opening night haunts me to this day).

That’s why I’m excited: No way home Sam Raimi’s film trilogy is not only a conclusion, but also a redemption. If the rumors are true, these two Andrew Garfield films, which also ended unspectacularly, will also get a decent dismissal.

For now, our permanent picture of Tobey Maguire’s Spidey is this:

And the:

After everything we’ve seen in 6.5 hours, 5 years, 4.5 villains, 4 Aunt May speeches, 3 unnecessary scenes with James Cromwell, 2.5 Kirsten Dunst songs, 2 Uncle Ben killers, and 1 memory loss through water pipe, Spider-Man 3 finally ended on a boring note – not with our titular hero flying through town, but with Parker and MJ hugging in openly dramatic fashion:

With No way home In order for Maguire and the gallery of his villains to return one more time, we can finally get the satisfying finale of Raimi’s films that we deserved in 2007.

Even if we get more Andrew Garfield and Jamie Foxx-as-Electro, that’s just the icing on the proverbial cake.

In other words, No way home has the potential to complete a series of films that began in 2002 and perhaps re-awaken public interest Spider Man, Spider-Man 2, Spider-Man 3 and The incredible Spiderman and The amazing Spider-Man 2 – which means Garfield’s enduring legacy as a wall crawler won’t be tied to it forever:

Yes, that’s a lot to ask, but as Andy Dufresne once said: “Hope is something good, maybe the best, and nothing good ever dies.”

Who would have thought he was talking Spider Man?!
