Spider-Man: No Way Home is now just a few more days over a week away from release and fans are excited to see how the entire crazy narrative of the movie will unfold. There are a lot of things that we can do before the movie releases and this includes watching all the movies that are related to this project. This will help us grab some more details that we might haven’t noticed when watching the trailer for the project. There have been a lot of reports and theories around the project and most of these are based on past films based around the friendly neighborhood superhero. Here’s a look at some of the movies you must watch before No Way Home hits theatres worldwide.
Captain America: Civil War
Fans of the MCU Spider-Man should check out Civil War because other than being the very first Spider-Man appearance in the MCU the movie it is also the movie where we see him connect with Iron Man. The Peter Parker Tony Stark dynamic is something that has played a significant role in giving Peter Parker the true idea of being a superhero.
The first Spider-Man solo venture in the MCU is a must-watch for the fans of the character because here we got to dive into the world of Peter Parker. Our hero faces his first big challenge and also the reason to prove his worth in the absence of his costume and Stark’s help. Plus, we got to see him take the costume to a whole new level of exploration.
Avengers: Infinity War
This is the first movie where we saw him fight against threats that are way beyond the friendly neighborhood world and he was alongside some of the major Avengers. It was amazing to see him deal with all the enemies while trying to maintain his own balance as an Avenger.
There are various reasons to watch Avengers: Endgame but mostly because the movie is an event that has affected the entire franchise will continue to have an impact. Another essential scene is when Banner touches upon the idea of multiverse while in discussion with the Ancient One.
Spider-Man: Far From Home
It was difficult to see something after the events of the Infinity Saga but this movie proved otherwise and it took us through the world after the end of that saga. We got to witness a whole new villain who will still be the prime responsibility for causing the events of No Way Home. The cliffhanger at the end is something that we will be majorly dealt with in the upcoming movie.
Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse
Talking about the multiverse, one movie that has dealt with multiple Spider-People coming together against a common enemy has to be this movie. Spider-Verse might have had a more technological means of exploring the multiverse but it still worked out on some rather major events.
The very first Spider-Man movie has been an influence on some of the superhero movies that we have come to see over the years. There are a lot of reasons why this movie should be considered essential viewing before No Way Home, specifically because Willem Dafoe’s Green Goblin appeared in this movie and he will be appearing in the upcoming one to reprise the same role.
Still considered the best Spider-Man live-action movie, fans would love to see the movie that created many of the aspects of an ideal superhero movie that appeared in this movie. Plus, it seems that Alfred Molina’s Doctor Octopus will continue from the very moment he died in this movie for No Way Home.
Not the best of the Spider-Man movies but still it did give us a variety of villains and the very first amongst the various Sony reboots that came after this. Sandman will be picked from this movie to the upcoming one and fans might be excited to see how Peter will battle him. Plus this was also the first time we got to see Venom battling it out with Spidey and that’s something we can expect in the MCU soon with Tom Holland’s Venom.
The Amazing Spider-Man
The most stylistic rendition of Spider-Man with a rather interesting touch on the character of Peter Parker, this movie has a completely special fanbase of its own. Lizard will also be appearing in the upcoming Spider-Man movie and he looks rather similar to the one that we saw in this movie.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2
The least considered of all the Spider-Man movies this one had a mixed bag of villains who were not given a proper structure and this really failed to work with the audiences. Luckily we will get to see a much better take on the character of Electro in No Way Home with Jamie Foxx returning on the role.
Doctor Strange’s origin story was made into a movie that came out and went without much notice considering it didn’t really have anything special in it. But fans might have noticed that Strange has become a bit cocky in his appearance in No Way Home and hence ends up botching a spell. Giving Doctor Strange a view might help us get a better understanding of the character.
Venom: Let There Be Carnage
Other than being a not too complex but enjoyable watch, Venom: Let There Be Carnage had fans scratching their heads over the post-credits scene. The movie ensured that Venom is now a part of the MCU and they did it in the most unexplainable way possible. Give this movie a look and you will know what we mean.
