Spider-Man: No Way Home‘s narrative touched our hearts. It is the most exciting from the franchise that fans could think of. The third chapter of the MCU’s Spider-Man saga widened the scope to the multiverse in an incredible story that will have an impact on Peter Parker’s life for the longest time. After months of anticipation, No Way Home lived up to the hype and demonstrates that MCU‘s Multiverse plan has a lot of promise. No Way Home faced a huge creative challenge by resurrecting villains from every previous Spider-Man franchise, but it managed to succeed where several superhero movies failed. In addition to breaking the box office records, No Way Home Broke The Villians Curse in the Superhero Movies too.

Fans might very well recollect that multiple villains have shown up in various superhero films over the years. It actually keeps the reader closer to the comics, where the heroes frequently face a multitude of villains. This was only used in Spider-Man films, with the two preceding Spider-Man films making a similar attempt. The Sam Raimi Spider-Man films were a huge success, and they took the genre in a completely new direction. This film would draw viewers relatively close to their own fave superhero. However, the third film in the trilogy was indeed a dud, resulting in the series’ discontinuation. This was significant because the film unexpectedly had a good amount of villains who weren’t properly developed.

The film Spider-Man: No Way Home finally breaks the curse by deciding to put five villains in a cohesive story that results in a successful film. After facing Vulture in Spider-Man: Homecoming and Mysterio in Spider-Man: Far From Home, Tom Holland‘s Spider-Man was pitted against five multiversal villains at the same time. According to the mentioned tradition, No Way Home had all the makings of a blatant ripoff of tempo and narrative. However, the film’s strong response from both critics and audiences demonstrated that having too many villains was never a problem.

No Way Home has indeed established itself as a milestone not just in Spider-Man films as well as in superhero production in general, and one of the reasons for this is the discovery of a way to break the “too many villains” curse. The phenomenal box-office collection of No Way Home can serve as a lesson to future superhero films that the amount of villains is not specifically linked to how good or bad the production would be. After all, the film’s primary focus must be on the story’s quality and how each character can add value to it.
