Spider-Man: No Way Home’s New Post Credits Scene Reveals a Far More Devastating Future for Tom Holland’s Peter Parker in MCU

Featured Video

Spider-Man: No Way Home (2021) saw the return of the iconic Tobey Maguire, Andrew Garfield, and the current friendly neighborhood hero Tom Holland’s Spide-Man. Following the release of the film, the post-credit scene of Eddie Brock returning back to his universe and leaving a part of the parasite behind was shocking to the audience. But following the release of the post-credit scene of the newly launched Spider-Man: No Way Home (the fun-stuff version), it reveals a darker fate for Tom Holland’s Peter Parker.

When the world forgot Spider-Man

At the end of Spider-Man: No Way Home, we saw Doctor Strange reworking his spell to make the world forget about the existence of Peter Parker aka Spider-Man. In the first theatrical release of No Way Home, the second post-credit scene was a trailer for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness (2022). However, in the now dubbed more fun-stuff version of the movie, a second updated post-credit scene has replaced the trailer.

In a Reddit post by u/KostisPat257, the creator pointed out the change in the post-credit scene in the film. According to them, the scene saw one of the characters Betty Brants’ in a news segment in their school. The theme being “the kids’ adventure throughout high school”, the news segment showed pictures of the Decathlon that took place in Spider-Man: Homecoming, and the Europe trip in Spider-Man: Far From Home, with one exception.

Peter Parker aka Spider-Man was missing from all the photos. Doctor Strange’s spell made people erase the memory of Peter Parker ever being born and thus, Tom Holland’s Peter Parker ceased to exist.


Spider-Man’s revival possible in the MCU?

This poses a big question for the future of Tom Holland’s Spider-Man in the MCU. Although the character is vital in The Avengers and overall one of the best superheroes possible, Tom Holland will have to work his way again to the top of Manhattan City while people would once again criticize his heroic work (looking at you J. Jonah Jameson).

At the moment, Sony is busy making the Madame Web movie with Dakota Johnson at the helm as Madame Web. The film is set in the Spideyverse and will potentially see many Spider-Mans making their way through the multiverse. As for Tom Holland, there has been no recent news of his Spider-Man making an entry on the big screen anytime soon. Madame Web is slated for a release on 6th October 2023.
