The MCU had to battle hard to bring Spider-Man into their reality. For a long time, there was a running joke in the internet community that Peter was not welcome at the Avengers’ table. Fans were well aware that the characters’ movie rights had long been sold to Sony, and that bringing them into a Disney film would be a corporate nightmare. But, because Marvel has a tendency to listen to fans and filmmakers, they did their best to reach an agreement in time for Captain America: Civil War.
Spidey was reintroduced to Marvel after two different incarnations in the Sony Universe. So today, we’ll try to figure out why Spider-Man doesn’t have organic webbing in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The Amazing Spider-Man begins with Andrew Garfield’s Peter Parker developing his web-shooters. Sony’s approach was different from Sam Raimi’s. Raimi utilized spontaneous web shooting to set up Tobey Maguire losing his powers, but now the filmmakers were a part of it. As a result, the management decided that making Peter Parker more comically accurate would be a good idea. In the comics, however, Peter has never had biological webbing. Although it has been hinted at in various comic plots, it has never formed a mainstay of his character sketch. Parker’s brilliance and creativity have always been the centre of attention.
We saw a bit of it in Far From Home, which may have influenced MCU’s decision to make the web mechanical. Fans love comic authenticity, but Marvel’s creative staff went above and beyond. They utilised this to incorporate Peter into the MCU, and we’re not complaining. What’s amazing is that, unlike The Amazing Spider-Man franchise, they got it right.
The MCU, you see, played a clever prank on us. They wanted Peter’s coming-of-age story to be distinct from what we’re used to seeing on television. So we have Tony Stark inducing the young soldier at a critical juncture. In the MCU, Spider-Man became Iron Man’s apprentice, and Marvel covertly built their headliner for Phase 4. But Peter still needed his arc, and with Uncle Ben’s death in the way and his talents fully understood, there remained a void in character development. Marvel has a strategy for that. They demonstrated Peter’s ability to use mechanical web shooters in the same way that his comic counterpart does.
Then, in Spider-Man: Homecoming, we saw that he has skilled allies who can assist him in unlocking the full capability of his costume. However, there may have been a little too much fiddling. But it established what it needed to establish. The fact that Peter has an intelligence equal to Tony’s and was capable of succeeding as Iron Man in the event of the hero’s death in Endgame.
As it stands, Spider-Man: Far From Home was the hero’s first adventure following Tony’s Snap. This film was centred around Peter adjusting to the responsibilities of being Spider-Man. Unlike Saimi’s trilogy, it was more about Peter’s alter ego than Peter himself. Peter had to embrace who he was, what he was capable of, and the burden that lay on his shoulders. In the film, it was portrayed as Peter’s capacity to self-actualize and improve his Spidey sense. For laughs, you might be tempted to call it “Peter Tingle.”
I am Spider-Man:
Peter’s technological prowess, struggle with Mysterio, and command of Spidey-sense (Peter Tingle) all served to demonstrate his adulthood. To emphasize that he was ready to step up and be the hero we needed. As a result, it was quite apparent that the MCU creative team decided to expose his name to the world. It was his personal “I am Iron-Man” moment. This assured us that the Spider-Man we knew would transform into the MCU and Avengers leader of the future.
Something that the story definitely needs is a hero to take over after Stark who took over from Thanos who took over from Stark. The Tony-to-Peter shift is unsurprising, as is the fact that Peter has a mind to match Tony’s. His fiddling with Tony’s inventions began in the first film, and things have now gone full circle. We are about to enter the multiverse. For everyone in the holy timeline, much alone Spider-Man, this is uncharted ground. Do you believe our explanation is clear?
