By 2017, audiences were fed up with Spider-Man’s origin story. With Uncle Ben’s death, a plot point stands out in both Spiderman and Ultimate Spiderman, Marvel Studios made a smart decision in Spider-Man: Homecoming to assume that everyone already knew how Peter Parker got his powers and why he was driven to fight crime.

But that doesn’t mean Uncle Ben doesn’t bite him in the MCU. Holland’s Spidey omitted a subtle mention of his past trauma when speaking to Tony Stark, saying “Look, when you can do things that I can, but you don’t.. . and then bad things happen, they happen because of you.” In addition, we have seen his initials on a suitcase in Away from home.
Mysteries of the multiverse dance of Spider-Man: There’s no way home could mean we’ll finally see the MCU take on this inspirational character. After all, what better way to hold Peter Parker’s heart than to give him a peek into a multiverse where he stepped on and saved Uncle Ben’s life?
I doubt we’ll ever see some form of Spider-Man origin story in the MCU, though I doubt it will make it to the big screen. Maybe a future episode of What if…? will show us how it all went downhill and it will be fascinating to see who they choose to voice this main character.
Spider-Man: Homecoming available for purchase on Prime Video, Apple TV Plus, Vudu, Google Play, or YouTube. Spider-Man: There’s no way home in theaters on December 17.
