Spider-Man: No Coming Home is widely considered to be one of the best projects Marvel Studios put together in Phase 4. Not only was it well-crafted, but it featured a team-up between Tom Holland, Andrew Garfield, Tobey Maguire as they almost entirely took on formed Sinister Six. Even better is how his ending didn’t pack a punch.
Not only did Aunt May end up biting the dust thanks to Norman Osborn, but Peter Parker himself had to make the ultimate sacrifice. To save all the universes, Peter asked Doctor Strange to follow his original fate. This time, however, it erased everyone’s memory of his existence – everyone’s favorite hero was truly alone.
However, it put the character in the perfect spot to become a truly classic version of the page header. So while the ending was tough, there was a bit of optimistic hope.
Today, on Tom Holland’s birthday, Sony social media mocked his dark fate; comedy is the best medicine, after all.
Sony jokes about Spider-Man
August 10 is a big day for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Why? Well, it was the birthday of Tom Holland, aka the man who brings Spider-Man to life.
To celebrate the occasion, Sony joked about Twitter on No coming homeThe memory-erasing ending twist, noting how they found a stranger’s passport and how it turned out to be their cake day too:
“I came across this passport for a ‘Peter Parker’…I don’t know who it is, but it looks like today is his birthday.”
Who in the world is Peter Parker?
For those who are tired of the “who is Peter Parker” jokes, well, maybe it’s better to get used to. They might be the norm for a while yet, or at least until more people start getting close to Peter again.
For that to happen, Sony will have to actually make progress on Spiderman 4. It’s been rumored to be in development, but rumor has it that the studio still hasn’t officially signed Tom Holland for any other projects yet.
While the actor will almost certainly get on board, he’s probably biding his time and aiming for a bargain before giving up his soul and his time. Spider-Man is easily one of the biggest characters in the MCU, so Sony and Marvel Studios will do everything they can to keep the star of the franchise.
But what does a fourth adventure have in store for us? Well, there’s that rogue symbiote piece, loose Scorpion plot threads, the return of Kingpin, and probably plenty of other options. Maybe the wall-crawler will even team up with Charlie Cox’s Daredevil at some point.
