The newest title in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), “SpiderMan-No Way Home,” has sparked excitement and new questions for fans all around the globe. 

“No Way Home” has opened an infinite number of possibilities, in what is known as the Multiverse. With the assistance of the past Sorcerer Supreme, Dr. Strange, the multiverse was opened and began wreaking havoc on Peter Parker. 

Senior Roshaun stated, “I’m looking forward to the future of the Spiderman movies. I’m hoping they release an Amazing Spider Man 3 sometime in the future.”

A quote that sent chills up fans’ spines was when Doctor Octavious said, “Hello Peter” in the original trailer. Fans were on the edge of their seats as the multiverse emerged in front of their very eyes, while their favorite actors all shared the spotlight.

The recent movie brought in actors like Toby Maguire and Andrew Garfeild to fight alongside Tom Holland. 

Even the villains of the movie were from a different universe as past villains such as Electro, Green Goblin, Lizard and Doctor Octopus fought valiantly. These villains were vicious along with being played by the original actors. 

Even the end credit scene was absolutely engaging yet mysterious. The end scene, which followed after the Venom 2 end-credit scene as Eddie Brock searches for Spider Man revealed the possibilities for a new hero or villain to the MCU, Venom. 

At the end of the scene, as Eddie is gaining intel on the previous Infinity Saga, he is sent back to his universe. Luckily for viewers, he left something behind. A small fragment of the Venom symbiote is seen on the bar’s counter, active and alive.

The new “Doctor Strange Multiverse Of Madness” trailer, which was released after the Spiderman movie, caused even more excitement. 

The future of the MCU has moved past the Infinity Saga and onto something far greater and maybe even deadlier than Thanos. Only time will tell. 

In the 2021 Marvel film, “Eternals,” Thanos’s brother emerged from the shadows. Even the “Shang-Chi” film gave hint at a universal threat as Shang Chi’s powerful weapon, the 10 rings, began emitting an unknown beacon to the cosmos. 

As universal characters like Eros of Titan and the Eternals have finally begun to enter the MCU, the possibilities seem almost endless. 

Even with all these new details and facts they are just small clips and hypotheses that may occur. Many fans speculate things such as Adam Warlock’s arrival and even an all out Multiversal War like the Secret War Comics. 

There are hundreds of hours on creative platforms like TikTok or Youtube revolving around theories, hidden easter eggs and hopes for the MCU’s evolution in the cosmic multiverse.

One theory held by senior Jaylen Williams is one many fans can agree with. “I think that there will be a universal war in chronopolis against different Kangs and Guardians of The Galaxy. I believe this will allow new heroes like the Eternals and other heroes into the MCU,” he stated.

Since the first Marvel film was released in 2008, viewers have seen countless heroes, various alien races like Kree and Skrull and even large-scale threats like Thanos. 

The 10 years leading to Thanos’s entertainment-breaking snap have passed and Marvel still continues to amaze fans worldwide.
