Spider-Man: No Way Home
By Ayari Oe
Spider-Man:No Way Home is part of the Marvel Comics universe which is popular worldwide. It was released in 2021, and domestic box office revenues were about 4.1 billion yen and was seen by 2.77 million people in Japan. In addition, it has the third-highest box office revenue in the U.S.
There are three works in the Spider-Man series. The first series is Spider-Man, the second series is the Amazing Spider-Man and the third series is Spider-Man:Home-Coming. Spider-Man also appears in Avengers movies, and his Avengers friends also appear in Spider-Man.
In this story, Spider-Man was even charged with murder when his identity was exposed. He asked Dr. Strange to regain his position and solve the situation, and they turned the time back. Because of that, it brought back the previous villain that they had overthrown, and they came to present-day New York. They are formidable opponents that he has defeated along with many friends.
Peter Parker, the main character in this movie, matures a lot. There was a conflict between his responsibility to protect the public and his own desires. There is a very famous scene in the first Spider-Man movie where his grandfather said, “With great power comes great responsibility.”
Of course he wants to save everyone, but it’s also true that ordinary citizens want him to take responsibility for any damage. That’s why a hero has great responsibility. It is very difficult for Peter, who is still a high school student, to understand and accept it.
Moreover, he experienc-
ed the death of a loved one and the loss of his reputation, friends, and his girlfriend. In the past, he only used his strength for himself, but now he thinks of everyone. It is hoped that he will get his reputation, friends and his girlfriend back someday. He must have the power to recover after losing everything.
This movie can be appreciated even if you haven't seen the previous Spider-Man films. In addition, this is not only for children, but also for adults to laugh, cry and enjoy. In this story, Peter redid his life and became stronger. We can redo our lives, too. You can't change space-time like he does, but you can do it all over again. Just as Peter rehabilitated villains in this story, it shows that even criminals have a chance to start over. This movie makes you forward-looking.
