Spiderman is DEAD! ►►
Venom is the VICTIM! ►

We’ve seen a lot of Spider-Man lately. Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse, Spider-Man: Homecoming, and soon Spider-Man: Far From Home. Before that we saw Andrew Garfield slinging webs with Emma Stone for a couple movies, but I want you to think FURTHER back. That’s right, I’m talking Tobey Maguire Spider-Man.
Remember how at the end of his first movie EVERYTHING had gone wrong? Norman Osborn – the Green Goblin – was gone, his best friend was fatherless, Uncle Ben did what all Uncle Ben’s do, etc.. It was all very sad. In Spider-Man 2, we see a Spider-Man without his powers. I want to talk about WHY he lost his powers. What made our friendly, neighborhood Spider-Man just plain, old Peter Parker?

  1. I agree that it was more psychological than physiological, but that is about it. It was more of a physical manifestation of his desire not to be Spider-man anymore. In the film being Spider-man is costing him everything he cares about from relationships to his academics. I think it was more his body responding to the desire to not be superpowered anymore.

  2. Hey Matt, I got a theory. It involves Saitama. Could Saitama pick up Thor’s Hammer? Thor’s hammer gets heavier the more force an unworthy person uses to try and pick it up. But even if Saitama is unworthy, couldn’t he just pick it up because he has infinite force?

  3. Now if only matpat can explain how Harry was able to gain the intelligence to build 3 new masks, perfect the goblin serum, and make a new glider/suit in the 3rd film.

  4. You say “it’s never explicitly addressed in the film”, but you’re forgetting one of if not THE most important rule in storytelling: Show, don’t tell. Raimi shows Peter going through trauma, his life going down the toilet, then taking a step back to recuperate while still pushing forward when the time comes (the burning building) until, at last, reconciling both aspects of his life. So yeah, it’s no two-hour session with a therapist, but it’s certainly there in a very smooth, storytelling-friendly way. He may have given us that awful emo-Peter montage in Spider-Man 3, but Raimi knows his shit regardless so that then 17 years old in 2004 me could easily understand what was going on through Peter’s mind. Yes, this video explores it a bit more in-depth and does give out good info on PTSD, but there’s no reason to complain about it not being “explicitly addressed”; it’s all there.

  5. Love the edits! Your growing so fast on YouTube you inspired me and my twin to start uploading videos! Keep up the good work! Hope I am as big as you one day !

  6. ”That just goes to show you that everyone, including superheroes, have their own issues.”

    Yes, everyone except REY FROM STAR WARS! Father figure Han Solo gets killed-Rey gets even stronger. No parents, no problem… just get even stronger. Best friend slashed in back by a light sabre-no problem, feminist force powers will make you even stronger!

    Peter Parker was awesome, in the original movies he felt soooo human! He had problems paying rent, problems to deal with in college, problems with his job. In short everything that is missing in Mary Sue movies created to rake in the cash.

  7. Aunt may is an alien and peter had those powers all along but the spider bite just gave him a reason to test them out even though it did nothing. mystery solved

  8. Hey MatPat, I have a request for a Film Theory. It’s actually a .T.V theory. It’s Canadian not American, but I still think a good one. You know that Canadian Teletoon cartoon Total Drama Island? I’d like to find out what the authorities would do if they found out how Chris McLean was treating the campers. Can you look into that, please?

  9. The only thing I REALLY disliked about that Spiderman trilogy was that he didn’t have web shooters, but instead the webs just come out of his wrist. That concept is just disturbing. What if people pull it out? AUGH!

  10. *I got the best idea for a theory you should do a theory of whether or not J. Jonah Jameson is right about Spider-Man being a menace. Just thought about it while playing through the Spider-Man game.*

  11. Or or they just wanted to make in sequel the story from comics/cartoon when he lost his power and then became Spider monster with 6 hands. That’s what I thought when the movie came out

  12. wasn’t it bcause he didn’t want to be spiderman then he realised that he had to be spidey to help the people he loved so he realised he wanted to help the people he loved so he wanted to be spidey so he got the powers back?

  13. How come in some movies or other versions of Spider-Man, it doesn’t seem like powers but some device that they press from their hand? Never understood that

  14. If you were Spider-Man wouldn’t you expect to have this kind of trauma all the time? I mean, he can’t save everyone even if it’s the people in his life that he cares about the most.

  15. The original trilogy will always be the best also toms Spider-Man needs a special enhanced suit and Spider-Man doesn’t need one

  16. Am I the only one annoyed that the ‘brain’ cutout he put on spidey’s head by the end was sideways even though spidey was facing the camera?

  17. before watching!! if think they do kill of this spider man (in my opinion is a bad idea(unless they went with thanos actually killing spider man in infinity war)) they could go with miles be the new spider man

  18. He lost his power because he lost his powers 😂 when the comic came out that was the only reason they needed to tell a new story. Believe it or not, there is no other “deep” reasoning for this. Thats why the movie didn’t go into this much. Let it go lol
