Mcu Spider-Man started his journey with Civil War and it was great.It looked like Marvel was going to give us everything we wanted from them but they threw all that potential with solo movies and they made it even worse with second movie.Here is a list of their mistakes.
1-Spider-Man Works Alone
Spider-Man always had problems with working with other heroes or joining teams like Avengers because he didn’t trust them about his identity and he knew even if he did join them he couldn’t work with them all the time because he has a life and he has his Aunt May who doesn’t know Peter’s identity and needs him.There were times Avengers knew Peter’s identity but he still doubted if he should join them or not because like Daredevil, Peter think that some heroes should look after the streets too.
2-Spider-Man Is Really Careful About His Identity
In mcu he keeps showing everyone his face and it doesn’t matter if he knows the guy well or not.We are talking about a guy who made a deal with the devil to keep his identity and loved ones safe.Seeing him going around showing everyone his face makes this character look stupid.
3-He Is More Than His Suit
In comics what makes Spider-Man special is that he is a good man who tries to help with all the power he has and he doesn’t need thousands of Stark Gadgets to do that.In these movies it looks like everyone can do what he does because most of the time suit does all the job.I mean give me that bulletproof Iron-Spider suit and I can do everything he does : I can shoot webs, I can beat anyone with those mechanical arms and I can survive hits I take thanks to the suit.If they want to show this character is more than those suits they need to prove it.In Spider-Man 2 Peter didn’t beat Doctor Octopus with his powers, he talked to him and reminded him who he really is.Scenes like that show you the hero behind the mask and you see it is not only his powers that makes him the hero he is.
4-There Are No Consequences
When Aunt May learned Peter’s secret identity she felt really bad and she waited to think before talking to Peter about it.When they talked about it May told Peter that she doesn’t want him to be Spider-Man anymore because she wants her nephew to be safe and even when she realized he is going to keep being Spider-Man she tried to protect his name by writing papers how they are wrong about him and she tried to read books to understand his perspective better.In the movie it is all just a joke for Jon Watts.May acts like she has no problem with him being Spider-Man and she even puts his suit in his suitcase like it is a normal thing.
5-There Is No Uncle Ben
There are certain things you can’t change about characters because it is their soul.You can’t change the murder of Batman’s parents, you can’t change the death of Daredevil’s father and you can’t change the man who made Peter the person he is.Uncle Ben is the most important part of Spider-Man comics because without him Peter could’ve been just an arrogant guy who has powers.MCU tried to replace that with Tony Stark and they even made fun of Spider-Man fans when Aunt May started dating Happy Hogan right after Ben’s death!
These are the main reasons why I don’t like MCU Spider-Man and why I think it is a big failure.If you have other opinions write them in comments.
