“Spider-Man: No Way Home” every connection to the Marvel TV series
What follows contains a fact, a casting spoiler, and the reveal of an end credits scene from the new movie. Spider-Man: No Path Home. Proceed at your own risk.
Oh, and it also contains spoilers from the December 15 episode of Hawk Eye.
Spider-Man: No Path Home, now in theaters, highlights a curious line of dialogue from the Dec. 15 TV episode Hawk Eye – but that’s far from the only connection between the cinematic event and the Marvel TV shows.
In the penultimate episode of Disney + ‘s latest MCU series, Natasha Romanoff’s revenge-seeking sister Yelena Belova (played by Black WidowFlorence Pugh), surprises Kate Bishop (Hailee Steinfeld) by appearing in the charred apartment of the hero-in-training. Yelena, however, does not bring nastiness but a fresh pot of mac and cheese.
Sharing the singular fork of Kate’s pitiful cutlery collection, Yelena invites her recent rooftop fighter opponent to share the meal. When Kate gets right to the point and asks Yelena what she’s doing, the Russian assassin notes that this “business” trip actually marks her first time in New York. As such, “I want to see certain things,” Yelena says. For example, “I want to see the Empire State Building, the new and improved Statue of Liberty, Rockefeller Center…”
But wait, what is “new and improved” about the Statue of Liberty? (At least I wondered what it was about. And maybe you did too.)
Well in the back half of Spider-Man: No Path Home, it is revealed that the Statue of Liberty is equipped with its own giant shield, in the style of that of Captain America.
The landmark, however, is still under construction (and clearly not open to tourists) during the events of Spider-Man: No Path Home, suggesting that if Yelena is preparing to visit him, Hawk Eye is set sometime after the last MCU movie.
Lady Liberty, however, isn’t the only connective tissue between the TV MCU and Spider-Man: No Path Home. What follows now is the aforementioned casting spoiler.
Picking up where the previous Spider-Man movie left off, No way home finds Peter Parker (Tom Holland) grappling with J. Jonah Jameson’s revelation of the webslinger’s true identity as a teenager. Peter’s friends and May are drawn into the “hero or killer” hubbub to the point that they seek legal advice. And said attorney comes in the form of Matt Murdock, aka Daredevil, Charlie Cox (though Peter et al are oblivious to the attorney’s other life).
Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige recently teased a callback of Charlie Cox as Matt, though he didn’t say where or what. And sure enough, Daredevil’s big bad Wilson Fisk aka Kingpin (played again by Vincent D’Onofrio) showed up in Hawk Eye Episode 5.
What finally follows is the revelation of the second of No way homethe two scenes of the end credits. Once again, you have been warned.
Because a large part of No way home revolves around the introduction of the multiverse and the role of Doctor Stephen Strange in that role, the end of credits scene is not so much a “scene” but a trailer for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness (currently in theaters in May 2022). This thrilling and thrilling trailer features (among others) Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) on the hunt for Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen), who quickly recognizes what she’s been up to in Westview – but fellow Avenger has a lot more to do with it. whipping fish. The same trailer builds on the reveal of Doctor Strange Supreme, the sinister wizarding doppelganger who appeared in the fourth episode of the Disney + animation. What if…? anthology series, “What if… Doctor Strange lost his heart instead of his hands?”
