Secret Wars Theory: Spider-Man Will Don the Symbiote Suit Venom Left Him With At the End of No Way Home

Featured Video

Spider-Man: No Way Home is a movie that fully changed the story of the web-slinger in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The movie not only provided the depth and maturity the character deserved but also gave us back the friendly neighborhood superhero we have seen in the comics and the past Marvel movies. But it seems even though he will be a street-level superhero, things can go haywire in Avengers: Secret Wars. A new theory claims that Secret Wars will give us the conclusion of that symbiote that Venom left at the end of No Way Home.

Spider-Man to be the carrier of Venom?

At the end of No Way Home, during the mid-credits scene, it is shown that Tom Hardy‘s Venom from Sony’s Marvel universe also entered the modern MCU timeline due to the spell. Though it was of not much use as very soon he even returned to his dimension after Peter Parker and Doctor Strange solved everything, the main surprise was when we found that while going he left a small part of Venom here in the main timeline of MCU.

Now according to this new theory, our Tom Holland may own this symbiote in Avengers: Secret Wars similar to Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 3. This will also recreate Spider-Man’s Secret Wars comic story arc in the movies. We already know that Secret Wars will feature the collision of universes. So it also means that there are high chances of the classic Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield Peter Parkers to return in the main timeline once again after No Way Home.

The return of the other spider-men will also ensure that if Tom Holland’s Peter Parker gets corrupted by it, the other variants especially Tobey Maguire’s Peter will surely try to warn him about the consequences. This can also give us an amazing sequence of the spider-men in a conflict among themselves quite contrary to what we have seen during their last movie.

After the ending of Spider-Man: No Way Home, we were shown that now nobody close to Peter Parker remembers him. Now he lives in a small rented apartment and with a brand new suit, he is completely in the shoes of friendly-neighborhood spider-man.

Even Kevin Feige explained that following the last venture, Peter Parker is now mostly a street-level superhero like Daredevil. Although still we are in the dark regarding the next Spider-Man movie, we will get more of Tom Holland in MCU and it is sure. While an animated series Freshman Year is announced to be released on Disney+, any live-action updates are yet to come. It is to be noted that announcements regarding Spider-Man movies come from the house of Sony so now it will be exciting to wait for any updates from their side.
